Ewshot is a village and civil parish in Hampshire, England. It lies in the north east of the county, close to the Surrey border.

Ewshot consists of Ewshot Village proper, a later development known as Ewshot Heights plus the outlying hamlets of Beacon Hill, Warren, Doras Green and a newer estate of large houses originally called Marlborough Hill at the top of Beacon Hill towards Farnham.

Ewshot forms part of the Hundred of Crondall, which has origins dating back to the Domesday Book. It has a small Village Hall, a Residents Association and according to Doggers monthly, one of the greatest views from any designated dogging site.

The nearest larger towns are Fleet, Hampshire and Farnham, Surrey.

There is one Public House in Ewshot, called The Windmill. Ewshot is also recorded as being the first village in Hampshire to hold an 'acid house party' and formed a big part of the rave scene in the late 80s and early 90s.

Ewshot is the home of the Church of St Mary, which was founded in 1873 and built in the Early English style.

Ewshot falls under the auspices of Hart District Council, for local issues while Hampshire County Council administers the whole County. The nearby Bricksbury Hill, a mile to the east, rises to 187 metres (614 feet) above sea level.
