Sandhoe is a hamlet in Northumberland, England. It lies about 3 kilometres (2 mi) northwest of Corbridge and 3 kilometres south of Hadrian's Wall.

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

"SANDHOE, a township in St. John-Lee parish, Northumberland; 4 miles E N E of Hexham. Acres: 1,648. Population: 266. Houses: 44. [Sandhoe] House, a fine modern mansion, is the seat of R. Errington, Esq.; and Beaufront, a conspicuous castellated mansion, on the site of an old residence of the Carnabys, is the seat of W. Cuthbert, Esq."

Sandhoe was originally a township in the ancient parish of Lee St. John. In 1887 Sandhoe absorbed the neighbouring parishes of Anick and Anick Grange. From 1894 until 1974 it was part of Hexham Rural District. In 1974 rural districts were abolished and Sandhoe became part of the Tynedale District until 2009 when Northumberland became a unitary authority.
