Corsenside is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, England alongside the A68 road about 17 miles (27 km) north of Corbridge. It had a population of 518 in the UK census of 2011.

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

"CORSENSIDE, a parish in Bellingham [registration] district, Northumberland; on Watling-street and the river Reed, around Woodburn [railway] station, and 5½ miles NE of Bellingham. It includes the villages of East Woodburn and West Woodburn; the last of which has a post office under Hexham. Acres: 11,132. Real property: £5,175. Population: 505. Houses: 108. The property is much sub-divided. Ironstone and limestone occur, and have been largely worked. The living is a rectory and vicarage in the [diocese] of Durham. Value: £275. Patron: William Bewicke, Esq. The church is ancient, and was reported in 1859 as bad."

Corsenside was an ancient parish until 1312, and a civil parish "(after Regained early)". (Source: A Vision of Britain through Time) From 1894 until 1974 the parish was part of Bellingham Rural District. In 1974 rural districts were abolished and Corsenside became part of the Tynedale District until 2009 when Northumberland became a unitary authority.
