Withybrook is a rural village and civil parish in the English county of Warwickshire. According to the 2001 census its population was 232.[1]

The village is located in a valley just west of the old Fosse Way, about halfway between Nuneaton and Rugby on the B4112 road. Administratively it forms part of the borough of Rugby; before 1974 it was part of the now-defunct Rugby Rural District. It achieved national prominence when, on 20 August 2005, a local farmer was murdered by car thieves.[2]

The village church, All Saints' Church, dates from the medieval period. It was extensively restored in 1995.
