Berwick Hill is a village in Northumberland, England. It is situated to the northwest of Newcastle upon Tyne, and just to the north of Ponteland.

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

"BERWICK-HILL, a township in Ponteland parish, Northumberland; 6½ miles S by W of Morpeth. Acres: 1,604. Population: 98. Houses: 20."

Berwick Hill was a township in the ancient parish of Ponteland and became a separate civil parish in 1866. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed back into Ponteland.
