Renhold is a village in Bedfordshire, sitting on the River Great Ouse, in the Barford Hundred, in the county. It is just to the north of Bedford.

Renhold consists of several hamlets (or "Ends" in local parlance) including Salph End, Church End, Lane End, Top End, Green End, and Water End. In the 2000s, two new housing estates were built on the southern boundary of the Renhold parish, marking the trespass of Bedford's swelling population into its surrounding villages.

Parish church

The parish church is All Saints, at Church End. It has a Norman font.

Around the village

The ruins of Renhold Castle are found in the parish. There is a country house called Howbury Hall in the southern part of the parish. It was rebuilt in 1849, and remains a private home.
