Wintringham is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. It is near the A64 road and east of Malton.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and the Centenary Way, long distance footpaths pass through the village. The vanished hamlet of Linton in the southeast of Wintringham parish was probably the birthplace of Lady Margaret Hoby, author of the earliest extant diary of a woman in English.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Wintringham was located in Norton Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Buckrose Wapentake.
