Ewhurst is a village and former civil parish in the Basingstoke and Deane District of Hampshire, 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northwest of Basingstoke. Its parish church dates from 1682. The village itself is much older, being referenced as "Ywyrstæ stigel" in 1023, appearing in the Domesday Book as "Werste", and later as "Ywhurst" in 1242.

Since 1932 the village has been part of the civil parish of Baughurst and, since 1974, part of the Baughurst and Tadley North ward of Basingstoke and Deane borough council.
