Sandford St. Martin is a village and civil parish in West Oxfordshire about 6.5 miles (10.5 km) east of Chipping Norton and about 9 miles (14 km) south of Banbury. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 209.
The village was called Sandford until about 1884, when the suffix "St. Martin" was added to distinguish it from Sandford-on-Thames elsewhere in Oxfordshire and Dry Sandford in what was then the neighbouring part of Berkshire. The village is centred on a former ford on Tyte brook, a tributary of the River Dorn.
