Belsay is a village in Northumberland, England. It is situated about 5 miles from Ponteland on the A696 which links the village with Newcastle upon Tyne and Jedburgh.

Scottish nobleman and doctor John de Strivelyn was granted the manor around 1340 by Edward III. On his death, the estate passed to his daughter, who was married to Sir John Middleton, and has remained with the Middleton family since.

Belsay is home to Belsay Castle, a fine medieval castle, and to Belsay Hall.
