Castle Bolton is a village near Bolton Castle in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, England. It gets its name from the castle which looks over the village green.[1] The population of the civil parish was less than 100 at the 2011 ONS Census. Details are maintained in the parish of Redmire.

The village is historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire.[2]

The village was largely constructed after the nearby castle and the houses were used by the retinue of Mary Queen of Scots when she was imprisoned in the castle.[3]
