Coupland is a village in Northumberland, England. It is on the north bank of the River Glen about 4 miles (6 km) to the northwest of Wooler.
Coupland is in the parliamentary constituency of Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Coupland Castle is situated in the village and is a Grade I listed building. It is a tower house rather than a castle which was probably built at the end of the 16th century. The tower has three storeys with an attic on top and a small projecting tower carried up the south wall.
A date stone over a fireplace in the tower engraved GW 1615 MW is thought to represent George and Mary Wallis owners at that date. It has been added to over the years and was restored in the 19th century, and in 1820 was extended when a three bayed two storied house was built adjoining the tower
- Matthew Culley, High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1869, lived at Coupland Castle.
