Baverstock is a small village and former civil parish in Wiltshire, England, about 7 miles (11 km) west of Salisbury. The village has 10 private dwellings, a church and several farm buildings. The manor of Hurdcott, a hamlet of a few houses, lies to the south east of the village (not to be confused with Hurdcott (Winterbourne Earls) near Winterbourne Earls).

To the north of the village is cultivated chalk downland and extensive mixed woodland. To the south the village is bordered by the River Nadder meandering through water meadows. The road through the village from the B3089 terminates in unmetalled farm track.

The church at Baverstock, dedicated to Edith of Wilton, is from the 14th and 15th centuries, with restoration in 1880–93 by Butterfield. It is Grade II* listed.

For the purposes of local government, since 1934, Baverstock has been part of Dinton civil parish. Previously Baverstock had been a parish in its own right.
