Hemswell Cliff is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A631 road between Caenby Corner and Gainsborough and on the Lincoln Cliff escarpment. According to the 2001 Census it had a population of 683.

RAF Hemswell was located on the site from 1937 until it closed in 1967. The airfield site was subsequently redeveloped into a private trading estate and the RAF married quarters into a Residential area which became a newly created civil parish of Hemswell Cliff. The old village of Hemswell remains as a separate parish.

By mid-2008 there was no longer RAF presence on the site, which became civilian. The RAF sold the community centre in 2009 to an educational charity.

The site's old H-Block buildings contains an antique centre, shops, a garden centre, hairdresser, used book shop and cafés. On Sundays there Sunday market and car boot sale.

Hemswell Cliff Primary School is in the village.
