Mangotsfield is a village in Gloucestershire, England, north of the suburb of Kingswood, bounded to the north by the M4 motorway and to the east by the Emersons Green housing estate.

The village is in the north-east outer-suburbs of the Bristol area and is mentioned in the Domesday Book 1086 National Archives Cat Ref: E31/2/1 Manegodesfelle. St James's Church was originally 13th century but was altered in 1812 by James Foster of Bristol and again in 1851 by Pope, Bindon and Clarke. Rodway Hill House is 16th century.

Mangotsfield railway station on the former Midland Railway line was closed in 1966. It was the junction on the main line between Bristol and Gloucester for the branch line that ran to Bath Green Park and on to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway to Bournemouth. The playwright and actor Arnold Ridley, famous for portraying the part of Private Godfrey in the BBC comedy Dad's Army, reputedly got the idea for his famous play The Ghost Train whilst waiting at the deserted station to catch a train in the early 1920's.

Mangotsfield is the home of Mangotsfield United F.C. and Cleve R.F.C. Rodway Hill is a favourite spot for dog walkers and the starting point of many pigeon races.

Mangotsfield was an ancient parish. It was reduced in 1894 by the creation of a Kingswood parish, with the rest forming a rural parish in Warmley Rural District. In 1927 a Mangotsfield urban district was set up in part of the parish, the remainder becoming the Mangotsfield Rural parish.

Local hero and ex QPR and Aston Villa striker Gary Penrice grew up in Mangotsfield.
