Warthill is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England, about six miles east of York and 14 miles south of Malton.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Warthill was part of Flaxton Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Bulmer Wapentake.

A Vision of Britain through Time lists the settlements of Warthill Freehold and Warthill Copyhold which were in existence from the establishment of civil parishes in 1866 until they merged as Warthill in 1925. There is no mention of these settlements in GENUKI which provides information from the 1820s. The total population 1881-1921 was never more than 200 people with Warthill Copyhold being by far the larger place. Freehold and Copyhold were two arrangements under which land was leased.
