The settlements in the parish are the following hamlets:

  • East Hatch
  • Kinghay
  • Newtown
  • Tuckingmill, immediately west of Tisbury (not to be confused with Tuckingmill village in Cornwall or Tucking Mill in Somerset)
  • West Hatch (not to be confused with West Hatch civil parish, Somerset)
  • The River Sem, a tributary of the Nadder, forms almost all of the southern boundary of the parish. The West of England Main Line railway, opened in 1859, follows the same route.

    The civil parish elects a parish council. It is in the area of Wiltshire Council unitary authority, which is responsible for all significant local government functions.

    Until 1835 the land now in West Tisbury parish was part of Tisbury parish. In 1986 small areas were transferred from West Tisbury to East Knoyle and Tisbury, the latter comprising housing built in the 1970s.

    Pythouse, a Grade II* listed country house, was built near Newtown in about 1725. Nearby Hatch House, from the 17th century and altered in 1908 by Detmar Blow, is also Grade II* listed.

    A school was built at Newtown in 1846 and closed in 1931.
