Burradon (near Rothbury) is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is about 14 miles (23 km) to the southwest of Alnwick and 6.6 miles west of Rothbury.

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

"BORROWDON, or Burradon, a township in Alwinton parish, Northumberland; near the river Coquet, 6 ½ miles NW of Rothbury. Acres: 1,538. Population: 144. Houses: 31."

Burradon was a township in the ancient parish of Alwinton and became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 it was part of Rothbury Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed back into the parish of Alwinton (which is to the west of Burradon).
