Duntisbourne Abbots is a village and civil parish located in the English county of Gloucestershire. The parish forms part of the Cotswold District. In the UK census of 2001 it had a population of 227.

St Peter's Church in the village was built in the 12th century, on the site of an earlier, Saxon, church.

Inside the church, the font also dates from Norman times, while the unusual chancel arch dates from an extensive Victorian restoration.
