Bourton-on-Dunsmore is a small village in Warwickshire, England. Along with the nearby hamlet of Draycote it forms the joint civil parish of Bourton and Draycote.

Bourton is part of the borough of Rugby and is located around six miles south-west of the town of Rugby, just south of the B4453 road.

Bourton-on-Dunsmore was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Bourton Hall in the village is a large stone mansion house which dates from 1791, and probably stands on the site of an earlier house.

Bourton is located upon a ridge overlooking the Draycote Water reservoir. Draycote is located at the bottom of the ridge towards the reservoir. Just to the west of Bourton is the village of Frankton. The development charity, Practical Action, is headquartered in Bourton.
