Wymington is a village and civil parish in the Bedfordshire district of Bedford. It is in the north of Bedfordshire, near the county border with Northamptonshire, and the nearest town is Rushden in Northants, which it borders to the north. Wymington is located 3½ miles south west of the market town of Higham Ferrers. Other nearby villages are Podington to the south-west and Farndish to the west. Wymington, although in Bedfordshire, has a Wellingborough dialing code and Rushden postcode.

Wymington was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as a parish.

The Parish Church of St Lawrence was built in the mid 14th century. It was built for John Curteys who, with his wife, is buried in the chancel and work started on this in 1350. Apparently the masons responsible came from Northamptonshire but were given a somewhat tighter budget for this church and were assisted by some local workmen. The tower and spire are lavishly ornamented. The interior is rich and complex, with a fine nave roof and the remains of a portrayal of the Doom.

Sharnbrook Summit Nature Reserve is located near the village and there is also Irchester Country Park which is situated only 3 miles from the village and Harrold-Odell Country Park situated within 5 miles, all of which are within easy travelling distance.

Nearby communities include Irthlingborough, Burton Latimer, Rushden, Higham Ferrers and Kettering.
