Kelloe is a village and civil parish in County Durham, England. It is situated to the south-east of Durham.

The Lordship of the Manor of Kelloe was bought by the Tempests of Broughton Hall, North Yorkshire, and bequeathed by Sir Henry Vane-Tempest to his daughter, Lady Frances Vane, who married the third Marquess of Londonderry.

Nearby is East Hetton or Kelloe colliery where six men were killed by gasses from the Trimdon Grange colliery disaster in 1882.
