Duntisbourne Abbots is a village and parish in Gloucestershire. Duntisbourne Abbots forms part of the Crowthorne and Minety hundred, except for Duntisbourne Leer, which lies in Rapsgate hundred.

The Five Mile House is a 17th-century Grade-II-listed public house at Old Gloucester Road.[2] It is on the Campaign for Real Ale's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.[3]

St Peter's Church in the village was built in the 12th century, on the site of an earlier, Saxon, church. Its tower dates from Norman times, and has belfry lights of pierced stone lattice work that date from the 13th century. Inside the church, the font also dates from Norman times, while the unusual chancel arch dates from an extensive Victorian restoration.[4]
