Woodmansterne is a village in the Borough of Reigate and Banstead, Surrey bordering Greater London, England. A residential linear settlement on two main roads, it sits on a small plateau and a south-facing down slope of the North Downs. Its ecclesiastical parish borders continue to span old boundaries and reach into Chipstead, Coulsdon and Wallington.

The civil parish was part of Croydon Rural District from 1894 until 1915 when Croydon Rural District was abolished. It was then transferred to Epsom Rural District, and in 1933 to Banstead Urban District. Since 1974 it has been located in the Borough of Reigate and Banstead in Surrey.
