Steppingley is a rural village and civil parish in Bedfordshire, England. It stands on high ground in the centre of a small parish of about 562 ha on the Greensand Ridge and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is located close to the nearby towns of Ampthill, Flitwick and Woburn, Bedfordshire.

Much of the surrounding land is part of either Beckerings Park, or the Woburn Estate. The Duke of Bedford influence can be seen in the characteristic style of the numerous workers cottages throughout the village.

Steppingley is a sought after village to live in, with a strong and active sense of community and excellent schools nearby.[citation needed]

It also has good transport links to the M1 (close to junctions 12 and 13) and the First Capital Connect trainline to London (45 mins to St Pancras International) is accessible at nearby Flitwick station (2 miles).
