Ibsley is a village in Hampshire, England. It is about 2.5 miles (4 km) north of the town of Ringwood to the east of the River Avon on the main road between Ringwood and Fordingbridge.

Ibsley was a civil parish until 1932, when the parish was amalgamated with the parish of Harbridge to become Harbridge and Ibsley parish within Ringwood and Fordingbridge Rural District. In 1974 the joint parish joined with Ellingham in the New Forest District of Hampshire. The hamlets of South Gorley, Furze Hill, and Mockbeggar were all part of Ibsley parish.
