Hildenley is a village near Malton, North Yorkshire, England.
It is referred to in Domesday Book as Hildingeslei.
In the 1540s it was purchased by William Strickland, grandfather of Sir William Strickland, 1st Baronet. George Strickland, of Hildenley, represented the county of Yorkshire in the British Parliament in the 19th century. In the early 20th century Hildenley was purchased by Dawneys and was passed down to Buttercup and Robin Barran. At the moment Hildenley is still owned by Barran's (Nicholas and Emma). The family estate will later be passed down to Lady Hebe Elisabeth as she is the oldest child of Nicholas and Emma and is therefore the rightful heir to the land.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Hildenley was located in Malton Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Appleton le Street in the Rydale Wapentake.
