Stadhampton is a village and civil parish about 5 miles (8 km) north of Wallingford, in in the South Oxfordshire District of Oxfordshire, England. Stadhampton village is on the A329 road and close to the River Thame (not the River Thames).

The parish is about 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Oxford and includes the villages of Stadhampton and Chiselhampton (a separate civil parish until 1932) and the hamlets of Brookhampton and Ascott (also a hamlet until 1932). The 2011 UK census recorded the parish's population as 832. Brookhampton was originally in Newington parish.

The River Thame flows through Chiselhampton. Stadhampton and Brookhampton are separated by a brook that flows through Chalgrove and joins the Thame just above Chiselhampton Bridge. Northwest of Chiselhampton is Richmond Hill, whose summit is more than 279 feet (85 m) above sea level.

Stadhampton was a chapelry in the ancient parish of Dorchester on Thames, but it appears to have become a separate parish quite early.
