Sapperton is a village and civil parish in the Cotswold District of Gloucestershire in England, about 4.5 miles (7.2 km) west of Cirencester. It is most famous for the Sapperton canal tunnel and its connection with the Cotswold Arts and Crafts Movement in the early 20th century. It had a population of 424 in the UK census of 2001.

The parish includes the villages of Sapperton and Frampton Mansell. The outlying hamlet of Daneway lies in the parish of Bisley, but is nearer to the village of Sapperton and often considered a part of it.
