Cootham is a hamlet in the Horsham District of West Sussex, England. It lies on the A283 road 0.9 miles (1.4km) west of Storrington.

Cootham's population numbers around 200 and the sole service available to residents is a public house named The Crown parts of which date from 1555. As a well known coaching inn 'The Crown' had its own stables. They were situated on the south side of the road to the pub and were converted, some years ago, into houses that are known today as Crown Cottages.

The hamlet lies in the lee of the South Downs, between the country estate of Parham (featured in the Doomsday Book) and the town of Storrington, where the nearest facilities are located. The main road running through the middle of Cootham is the A283 that runs west to Pulborough and Midhurst and east to Storrington and Washington.

The pronunciation of the village name is traditionally COAT-um or /'k?ut?m/ with the first syllable sounding like the item of clothing, although these days many people pronounce it as it is spelt.

Items of local interest include the Southdown Gliding Club which operates flights from a field at the western extremity of Cootham; Cootham Village Hall which hosts various local community activities and Parham House itself, one of the south east's finest country houses.

Public transport is limited to one bus, the Compass Travel 100, that runs to Pulborough mainline station (trains to Portsmouth and London Victoria).

In the 1980's, oil was discovered beneath a large part of Cootham and a small pumping station was constructed at the corner of the gliding field. This is still operational and features two 'nodding donkey' pumps and a gas burner. Much of the area surrounding Cootham is protected from development, though housing has encroached significantly since the late 1980's and there is now little untouched land between Cootham and Storrington.
