Stonegrave is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. At the 2011 Census the population was less than 100 and so the details are included in the civil parish of Nunnington. By 2015, North Yorkshire County Council estimated the population as 110. It is situated in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and south east of Helmsley on the Helmsley to Malton road (the B1257).

The village is noted for its church, Stonegrave Minster which has its origins in the 8th century. The tower is partly Anglo-Saxon, with the main body of the church rebuilt during the Norman period with locally quarried stone. The grade II* listed church was rebuilt in 1863. It is part of a four-parish benefice, including the churches of Oswaldkirk, Stonegrave, Gilling and Ampleforth. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Stengrif, with the land belonging to Ralph Pagenel.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Stonegrave was part of Helmsley Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Rydale Wapentake.
