Chollerton is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated on the A6079 road, about to the north of Hexham, on the River North Tyne. Nearby villages include Low Brunton and Humshaugh. The village has a fine example of a mounting block standing at the churchyard gate.

Chollerton is also a registration sub-district in Northumberland; its population in 1851 was 5024 people.

The etymology of the name Chollerton is uncertain; possibly it is from the Old English "Ceolferth's tun" but more likely it meant "tun by Ceolan ford or Ceolford", if so "Ceolford" meant "Ceola's ford" (i.e. modern Chollerford).
