Uploders is a small village in West Dorset, England. It consists mainly of houses, and has a pub (The Crown), and a playing field. The River Asker also runs through the village. It is a linear village, surrounding the minor road between Bridport and Askerswell. It is around half a mile from Loders, and around 3 miles from Bridport, the nearest town. The A35 trunk road also passes by around half a mile from the village.

There are several places of interest to visit, a few being the market town of Bridport, the harbour at West Bay, the beaches along the Jurassic Coast (Burton Bradstock and West Bay being the nearest), the local pubs around the area, and the Iron Age hill fort of Eggardon Hill (about 2 miles east). There are many good walks from the area as well.
