Aspley Heath is a village and civil parish in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England, elevated and small in population and area, mostly covered by New Wavendon Heath and a smaller mixed eponymous woodland. It was until some time after 1912 part of Aspley Guise.[n 1][2] The Office for National Statistics records the village as part of the Woburn Sands urban subdivision of the Milton Keynes urban area.[3]

The village borders Aspley Guise to the northeast, Woburn to the south, and the town and parish of Woburn Sands, to the north and northwest which is in the Borough of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire.
