Skimpot is a hamlet located on the edge of the Luton/Dunstable Urban Area in Bedfordshire, England.

Originally a small rural settlement, Skimpot now adjoins with the expanding town of Dunstable to the north, while the southern part of Skimpot still ends in open countryside. The M1 motorway acts as the eastern boundary of the settlement.

At the 2011 Census the population of the hamlet was included in the civil parish of Caddington.
