Wingfield is a hamlet located in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England.

The settlement is close to Tebworth and Chalgrave, with the nearest town being Houghton Regis.

Wingfield forms part of the Chalgrave civil parish, and is home to The Plough Inn public house.

The Icknield Way Path passes through the village on its 110-mile journey from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Knettishall Heath in Suffolk. The Icknield Way Trail, a multi-user route for walkers, horse riders and off-road cyclists also passes through the village.
