Biddestone is a village and civil parish in northwest Wiltshire, England, about 3 miles (5 km) west of Chippenham and 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Corsham. In 1885 the civil parishes of Biddestone St. Nicholas and Biddestone St. Peter merged to become Biddestone. Both smaller parishes are redirected here.

The Bybrook River forms the western boundary of the parish, while the northern boundary follows approximately the Bristol to Chippenham road, known as the A420.

In 1934 the parish was expanded when it absorbed the adjacent parish of Slaughterford.
