Darmsden is a hamlet and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk District of Suffolk, England. Located near the A14 road around 2 kilometres (1 mi) south of the town of Needham Market, it became a civil parish in April 2013 after separating from Barking.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Darmsden from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"DARMSDEN, a hamlet in Barking parish, Suffolk; 1 mile S of Needham-Market. Acres: 790. Real property: £1,355. Population: 64. Houses: 13. It forms a curacy with Barking; and, prior to 1841, was returned as a parish."

The hamlet is on a private estate and has no public roads, although the main estate road linked to the B1113 road is open to all.
