Luffield Priory was a monastic house in Luffield Abbey, straddling the counties of Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire, England.

The priory was founded by Robert de Beaumont, 1st Earl of Leicester between 1118 and 1135, and dissolved 1494.[1]

Though the vast majority of the priory's land and buildings were in Buckinghamshire, the church itself stood in Northamptonshire; consequently it was the Archdeacon of Northampton who inducted Priors.
