Woodland is a rural village in County Durham, England. It is situated 1100 feet above sea level, a few miles to the north of Barnard Castle, and west of Bishop Auckland. Woodland is a typical small rural community with most villagers finding employment in local towns and cities. Agriculture provides a living for a number of villagers--livestock rearing being the most suitable practice for such an upland area. The population of the village was 234 at the 2011 UK census.

Woodland was originally a township in the ancient parish of Cockfield in County Durham. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 it was part of Barnard Castle Rural District. Between 1974 and 2009 it became part of the larger Teesdale non-metropolitan district. Since 2009 County Durham has been a unitary authority.
