Burythorpe is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England, about south of Malton. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 289, reducing marginally to 286 at the Census 2011. The Whitegrounds barrow is nearby.

The Church of All Saints is a Grade II listed building. The current building was built in 1858 in the Gothic Revival style replacing a previous church on the site.

The Bay Horse public house which closed in April 2014 was reopened in October 2016 after a local group campaigned to have it recognised as an important asset of the community. The pub is listed in Baines 1823 directory along with a reference to Francis Consitt who is stated to have died in Burythorpe in 1768 at the age of 150.

Burythorpe was originally an ancient parish in Buckrose Wapentake in the East Riding of Yorkshire. In 1866 the status of civil parish was introduced and this was taken on by most ancient parishes and also by their subsidiary townships if they were of any size at all. In 1866 Burythorpe, which had no townships, became a civil parish. In 1894 it became part of the Norton Rural District of the East Riding. In 1935 Burythorpe absorbed the neighbouring parishes of Kennythorpe and Eddlethorpe and Menethorpe.

In 1974 rural districts were abolished and the border between the East Riding of Yorkshire and the North Riding of Yorkshire was realigned. The North Riding changed its name to North Yorkshire. Since 1974 Burythorpe has been in North Yorkshire, specifically within the Ryedale District.
