Up Nately is a small village and civil parish in the Basingstoke and Deane District of Hampshire. Its nearest railway station is in Hook, three miles to the east of the village. The Basingstoke Canal, which soon ends at Greywell, runs through the village to the north.

Originally part of the ancient parish of Mapledurwell (which, even earlier, was in the ancient parish of Newnham), it was created as a separate estate in the early part of the 12th century, when it was granted to the Cistercian Abbey of Tiron in France by Adam de Port (died circa 1133). It was sequestered by Edward III as it was an abbey that owed allegiance to a foreign power. It was bought in 1391 by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, who then bestowed it on the newly founded College of Winchester.

In 1932 the civil parish was abolished and replaced by the civil parish of Mapledurwell and Up Nately. At the same time the new parish was transferred to Hartley Wintney Rural District.
