Nicholforest is a civil parish situated on the border of England and Scotland. The parish covers an area that extends about 10 miles east to west and 2 miles north to south.

The area was once an extensive forest between England and Scotland, and was a centre for commercial forestry by the Forestry Commission. Today there are still many trees, watered by the River Liddle (also known as Liddel or Liddell Water) and Kershope Burn coming down from the Cheviots.
