Heyshott is a village and civil parish in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England. It is approximately 3 miles south of Midhurst. Like many villages it has lost its shop but still has one pub, the Unicorn. The hamlet of Hoyle is just to the north east of the village.

In the 2001 census the parish covered 938 hectares (2316 acres) and had 131 households with a total population of 309 of whom 137 residents were economically active.

Heyshott is renowned for its annual "Harvesting the Old Fashioned Way" festival. This occurs every September, celebrating the agricultural history of the village. It is also well known locally for its Bonfire and Firework display, which is held on a Saturday evening close to the 5th November, from 7pm.

The anglican parish church is dedicated to St James the Great.

It is also notable that Bishop Morris Maddocks is buried at the local church, alongside his beloved Anne.
