Hunstanworth is a small village in County Durham, in England. It is situated approximately 10 miles to the west of Consett, south-west of the village of Blanchland.

The village was designed and built around the original 1781 parish church. The Reverend Daniel Capper commissioned architect Samuel Sanders Teulon to create the village in the 1860s, and Teulon delivered a vicarage and stable block, school and school-house and a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached houses, all constructed of sandstone.

Hunstanworth is one of the Thankful Villages that suffered no fatalities during the Great War of 1914-1918.
