Godstone is a village and civil parish in the county of Surrey, England. It is centred 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Reigate at the junction of the A22 and A25 roads, and near the M25 motorway on the escarpment of the North Downs to the north. In its far south it has a railway station, with its own small community South Godstone separated by agricultural land. Two other communities exist tied to Godstone, The Enterdent and Blindley Heath, which includes a grassland nature reserve. The Greensand Way and the North Downs Way pass through areas of Godstone.

The county town of Guildford is 22 miles (35 km) due west and central London is centred 18.1 miles (29.1 km) north.
