Ulleskelf is a small village and civil parish in the Selby district of North Yorkshire, England, four miles from Tadcaster on the River Wharfe. Its name comes from the Scandinavian personal name Úlfr, while Kelf means calf in Icelandic (i.e. Old Norse). It was written in the Domesday Book as Oleschel and Oleslec.

It is served by Ulleskelf railway station, at which up to three trains a day run, all operated by Northern. It has one public house (the Ulleskelf Arms) and one shop (Post Office/general store). The 2011 UK Census recorded the population of the parish as 980.

An episode of A Touch of Frost, Mind Games, starring David Jason and Keith Barron, was filmed in the village in 2008.
