Bishopstrow is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, on the River Wylye about two miles south-east of Warminster, at grid reference ST893437. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 109, increasing to 122 in the 2011 census.
The parish is considered too small to support a parish council, so instead it has a parish meeting, a body in which all electors for the parish are voting members. Almost all local government functions are now carried out by Wiltshire Council, a unitary authority created in 2009. The village is represented in parliament by Andrew Murrison and in Wiltshire Council by Christopher Newbury, both Conservatives.
Bishopstrow House originally stood between the Salisbury Road and the River Wylye. In 1817 William Temple built a new house on the north side of the road using the Bath architect John Pinch the elder. This is now a hotel and restaurant.
