Rousdon is a village in East Devon off the A3052 road between Colyford and Lyme Regis in Dorset.

The small village developed around the Mansion of the Peek family in the early 19th century. A boarding school called Allhallows moved there from Honiton in 1937 and closed in 1998.

Immediately to the south are the coastal cliffs and The Undercliff wilderness area that resulted from a landslip in 1839. The South West Coast Path is the only route through it and it is not accessible from the village.
