Long Sutton is a small village and civil parish in the Hart district of Hampshire, England. The village lies about 3 miles (4.8 km) south of the town of Odiham. Neighbouring villages include Well, South Warnborough and Upton Grey.

Long Sutton is in an exclusive setting with easy access to the likes of Farnham, Fleet, Basingstoke, Reading and Alton. With a small village population there is a strong sense of community and the annual village summer fete is a key calendar event. The village is home to a family of ducks in the pond, a church and a recreation ground which is in regular use. The village includes picturesque brick and half-timbered cottages, and a farmhouse dating from Tudor times. Hydegate House was built in about 1561 by the Terry Family. In 1,200 acres (4.9 km2) of farmland stands Lord Wandsworth College, a Neo-Georgian structure built in 1915, founded as a boarding school for boys who have lost a parent. The line of the "Harrow Way," one of the oldest roads in England, runs through the village.

Hairdresser John Frieda lives in the village.[citation needed]
