Hardmead is a small village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes and ceremonial county of Buckinghamshire, England.[2] It is in the north of the Borough, about seven miles west of Bedford, five miles north east of Newport Pagnell. The village is close to the A422 road, on a very small road linking that to nearby Newton Blossomville.

The village name is Old English in origin, and means 'Heoruwulf's meadow'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was called Herulfmede. The village is very small with a population of around 100 people. The nearest pub is located one mile away in Astwood and the nearest shop is about four miles distant.
