Warnford is a village and civil parish in the Winchester District (or "City of Winchester") of Hampshire.

The village lies on the A32 road in the valley of the River Meon between West Meon and Exton. The village was by-passed by the former Meon Valley Railway which ran down the east of the valley.

The Church of Our Lady, to the south of the village, was rebuilt in the 12th century and contains relics of an earlier Saxon church. The ruins of the 13th century St. John's or King John's House are nearby. There are watercress beds at two places in the valley.
