Winterbourne Steepleton is a village and civil parish in south west Dorset, England, situated in a winterbourne valley west of Dorchester, next to the village of Winterbourne Abbas. The name of the village derives from its site next to a seasonal winterbourne stream and from having one of only three stone church steeples in the county (the others being at Iwerne Minster and Trent). In the 2011 Census the parish had a population of 297.

The parish church, dedicated to St Michael, dates mostly from the 12th and 13th centuries, although the nave has Saxon elements and the steeple is a 14th-century addition.
