The village has one public house, the Plough Inn, which was renovated in 2012. It has retained its original character, serves food and holds village community events. The pub is situated on the eastern side of the village on the junction with Main Street and Page Lane. Further along Page Lane there is a playing field with a cricket ground, a tennis court and a children's playground.
The village no longer has a chapel, but the Wombleton Parish Hall on Page Lane acts as the focal point for occasional religious services. It also holds regular village and community events.
Approximately to the south of the village on the road to Harome, is the turning for an old RAF airfield RAF Wombleton. It is now a private airfield and the location of a popular caravan campsite. Also at the turning on the Harome road is a Second World War Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) memorial.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Wombleton was part of Kirkbymoorside Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Kirkdale in the Rydale Wapentake.
