Winterborne Stickland is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southern England. It lies within the North Dorset administrative district, about west of the town of Blandford Forum. In the 2011 Census the parish, combined with the neighbouring parishes of Winterborne Clenston to the south and Turnworth to the north, recorded a population of 653.

Winterborne Stickland is sited in a winterbourne valley in the Dorset Downs, which gives rise to the first part of its name. The second part "Stickland" is derived from sticol, Old English for "steep".

To the north of the village is a children's playground, cricket pitch and football pitch with clubhouse. To the north of that a small orchard of apple, pear and plum trees has been planted.
