Corhampton is a village in the Winchester District or (City of Winchester) of Hampshire, England. It lies on the western bank of the River Meon. Since 1932 it has formed a civil parish with Meonstoke which adjoins it on the eastern bank. From 1894 until 1932 it was a separate parish in Droxford Rural District.

The Church of England parish church is Saxon and was built around 1020. The font is Norman and there are 13th century wall paintings in the chancel, and a canonical sundial on the south wall.

In the churchyard is an ancient yew with a 26 ft girth.
