Limestone Knowe is a hill amongst the Cheviot Hills, in Northumberland. The summit plateau is broad, partly in the Northumberland National Park. It reaches 1,808 feet above sea level at its highest point.

The hill is a flat, shallow hill, with a broad summit plateau of little interest. The Kielder Burn rises in two branches (the Scaup Burn and White Kielder Burn) on this hill, each of which is formed for numerous streams running from the summit plateau.

The hill is immediately south of Carter Fell, at the boundary with Roxburghshire. Carter Fell is a convenient waypoint for access, or the footpath up to Carter Bar from the Kielderhead from the Kielder Burn.
