Kempston Hardwick is a small village on the edge of the town of Kempston in Bedfordshire, England]]. Historically it was one of the hamlets or "ends" scattered across the parish of Kempston. It has a station on the Marston Vale Line which hit the headlines when it was revealed it only has one passenger a day. Ironically, the town of Kempston itself has no railway station, despite the fact that it has a population of about 20,000 and some have suggested the station should be relocated in Kempston.

Despite it rural setting, Kempston Hardwick is considered part of Kempston town, not the Kempston Rural civil parish. This is a consequence of the division of the old larger Kempston parish in 1896. For electoral purposes, Kempston Hardwick now forms part of the Kempston South ward for elections to Kempston Town Council and Bedford Borough Council.
