Pallinsburn House is an 18th-century country house situated at Ford, Northumberland. It is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England.

The house was built about 1763, in a Jacobean style originally with a three-storey frontage, for John Askew, (High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1776), a younger son of Dr Adam Askew of Storrs Hall. The Askew family occupied the house until it was sold in 1911 to Major Charles Mitchell DS0, the grandson of the wealthy Tyneside shipbuilder and Associate of Armstrong,Charles Mitchell. Over the years, Major Mitchell carried out extensive improvements and alterations. In 1933 work was begun to remove the third storey of the central block.
