Bevercoates is a hamlet and civil parish in the Bassetlaw District of Nottinghamshire, England, about six miles south of East Retford and five miles northeast of Ollerton. According to the 2001 UK census it had a population of 28. The population remained less than 100 at the 2011 UK Census and the parish has thus been combined with the parish of Bothamsall in the figure published.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Bevercoates from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"BEVERCOATES, a parish in East Retford district, Notts; 2½ miles NW of Tuxford, and 3½ from Tuxford [railway] station. Post Town: Tuxford, under Newark. Acres: 790. Real property: £799.
