Renhold is a village and civil parish located on the river Ouse, in the hundred of Barford, in the county of Bedfordshire, England. It is just to the north of Bedford. Bedford County Council estimated the population as 1,800 as at 2005, and forecasts an increase to 2,320 by 2010.

Renhold consists of several hamlets ("Ends" in local parlance) including Salph End, Church End, Lane End, Top End, Green End, and Water End. In the first years of the 21st century the northern boundary of Bedford crossed Norse Road, encroaching on the farmland buffer between the town and the village.

The parish is home to All Saints Church at Church End and the ruins of Renhold Castle. 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.
