Stargroves is a country estate, in East End, Newbury, England. It is currently owned by Rod Stewart, who purchased it for £2.5million in 1998.

During the 1970s, it was the home of Mick Jagger, who with The Rolling Stones recorded Exile on Main St and five songs from Sticky Fingers there. Led Zeppelin recorded a number of songs at Stargroves in the spring of 1972, using the Rolling Stones' mobile studio, which ended up on the albums Houses of the Holy (1973) and Physical Graffiti (1975).

Stargroves was also used during the filming of Doctor Who. The exterior of the house and its grounds were also extensively used for the stories Pyramids of Mars (1975) and Image of the Fendahl (1977).
