Spetisbury is a village and civil parish in north Dorset, England, situated on the River Stour and the A350 road, southeast of Blandford Forum. The village has a population of 542. It is notable for being a very linear settlement, with mostly only one line of buildings adjacent to the A350 road. Currently, a large project is underway which may lead to the construction of a new bypass of the A350, meaning that the high traffic that currently passes through would be redirected.

Spetisbury is twinned with Le Vast, a village in the North-East of the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy, France.
