Hutton-le-Hole is a small village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England, about seven miles (11.3 km) north-west of Pickering. Hutton-le-Hole is a popular scenic village within the North York Moors National Park. Sheep roam the streets at will.

The Merrills World Championships took place annually at the Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole until 1997.[2] The museum contains 13 rescued and reconstructed historic buildings, including an Iron Age round house, period shops, thatched cottages, an Elizabethan manor house, barns and workshops. They display the lives of ordinary people, up to the present day. There is a cafe, a shop, a gift shop and (in season) craft workshops.[3]

The Quaker minister John Richardson died in Hutton-le-Hole in 1753 at the age of 87.
