Kirkharle (otherwise Kirk Harle) is a hamlet in the county of Northumberland, England located about 12 miles (19 km) west of the town of Morpeth, just to the west of the crossroads of the A696 and B6342 roads.

Kirkharle Hall was a country house at Kirkharle, the former seat of the Loraine family, now much reduced and in use as a farmhouse.

Kirkharle was originally a township in the ancient parish of Kirkwhelpington. It became a separate civil parish in 1866, but since 1958 has been again part of the civil parish of Kirkwhelpington.
