Bratton Fleming is a large village near Barnstaple, in Devon, England.

The village runs along one street which climbs steadily up the foothills of Exmoor. The Flemings had their seat at Chimwell, now a farmhouse called Chumhill, which Risdon said was "one of the largest demesnes of this shire." Benton and Haxton were small Domesday manors. The great jurist Henry de Bracton was probably born at Bratton, although his claim is also made for Bratton Clovelly.

St Peters Church was rebuilt on the site of a much older building, in 1861.

The village was once served by a railway station, supposedly 'the most beautiful in England', on the narrow gauge Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, the trackbed of which runs close to the village.
