Chillingham is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) to the east of Wooler, south of Chatton.

Chillingham is famous for its castle[citation needed], which is said to be haunted, and the Chillingham Cattle[citation needed], a wild herd of roughly 50 individuals that are kept in an enclosure since the Middle Ages and have been strictly inbreeding for at least 300 years. The village contains Hebborn bastle house, a fortified house near Hepburn Wood.[2]

HMS Chillingham, a Ham class minesweeper, was named after the village.
