Langthorne is a village and civil parish in Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. Like many settlements in the area during the tine of the Domesday Book, the land belonged to Count Alan and had just three villagers registered as living there. The name of the village means Tall Thorn-Bush (or tree) and derives from the Old English Lang and þorn.

The population as taken at the 2011 Census was less than 100 and estimated to be 60 in 2015. Details are included in the civil parish of Patrick Brompton. It is near Hackforth and the A1(M) motorway north of Bedale.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Langthorne was part of Bedale Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Bedale, but in the wapentake of Halikeld.
