Bebside is a former coal mining village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated to the west of Blyth. The mine associated with the village operated between 1858 and 1926.

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

"BEBSIDE, a township in Horton parish, Northumberland; on the Blyth railway, 2¾ miles W of Blyth. It has a [railway] station, and extensive iron-works. Population: 53."

Bebside was a township in the ancient parish of Horton and became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 it was part of Tynemouth Rural District. In 1912 the civil parish was transferred to Blyth Urban District/Municipal Borough and then in 1920 Bebside was abolished completely and the area absorbed into the civil parish of Blyth.
