Sir Basil Edward Peto, 1st Baronet (13 August 1862 – 28 January 1945) was a British Unionist politician.

Born at Westminster, Peto was the seventh son of Sir Samuel Morton Peto, 1st Baronet. At the January 1910 general election he was returned as Member of Parliament for the Devizes constituency in Wiltshire, and retained the seat until the 1918 election. He was later elected twice as Member of Parliament for Barnstaple, holding the seat from 1922 to 1923 and again from 1924 to 1935.

Peto lived at Kirby House at Inkpen in Berkshire. He was created a Baronet, of Barnstaple in the County of Devon, in January 1927. He died in January 1945, at Trowbridge, Wiltshire, aged 82. He was succeeded by his elder son James Michael Peto (1894-1971). A younger son Christopher (1897-1980) succeeded his elder brother and also served as MP for Barnstaple.
