Cawkwell is a hamlet and former civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 6 miles (10 km) south-west from the town of Louth, and in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is in the civil parish of Scamblesby.

Cawkwell is a deserted medieval village first mentioned in 1354.[1][2] Cawkwell parish church was dedicated to Saint Peter. It was still standing in 1872 but had disappeared by 1924, with parts of it used to restore the church at Scamblesby.[1][2] Cawkwell House is a Grade II listed building dating from 1825 and built of brick with a slate roof.[3]
