Great Somerford is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England. It is within Dauntsey Vale near the south bank of the river Bristol Avon. It lies approximately 3 1⁄4 miles (5.2 km) southeast of Malmesbury and 12 miles (19 km) west of Swindon. The hamlet of Startley and the location of Seagry Heath are within the bounds of the parish. The parish had a population of 737 in the UK census of 2011.

The parish boundaries to the northeast and east follow the Avon, or in some places the river's former course.

The Brinkworth Brook joins the Avon in the northwest corner of the parish.
