Headlam Hall is a 17th-century country house at The Green, Headlam, near Gainford, County Durham. It is a Grade II* listed building now in use as an hotel and country club.

An estate at Headlam was acquired by the Birkbeck family by marriage in the 16th century and the manor house was replaced by Henry Birkbeck early in the 17th century. In 1714 Anne Clarke née Birkbeck, heiress of the estate married Lawrence Brockett. The Brocketts carried out substantial extensions and alterations to the property in the mid 18th century creating the present Hall in Georgian style with an entrance front of three storeys and six bays to the west. The north wing was added about 1912.

In 1912 Joseph Albert Pease MP. bought the estate. He became the first Baron Gainford in 1917 (see Pease family (Darlington)). After his death in 1943 the house was sold to the Stobart family. It was acquired by the Robinsons in 1977 and converted for use as an hotel
