Eastleach Martin is a village on the east bank of the River Leach in Gloucestershire, England. It is smaller than its neighbour, Eastleach Turville, which is located on the opposite bank of the river. Today, the two principal structures are the church of St. Michael & St Martin, and Eastleach House, with a formal garden and extensive grounds open to the public. Eastleach Martin was also known as Bouthrop or Burthrop.

In 1935 Eastleach Martin and part of Eastleach Turville were merged into a new parish of Eastleach. Today the village is located in the Cotswold District.
