The Parish of Amotherby lies on the southern edge of the Vale of Pickering, about 3 miles west of the market town of Malton. It is approximately one mile wide and three and a quarter miles long, extending from Easthorpe and Hildenley just over the top of the Howardian Hills down the north facing slope to the River Rye at Newsham Bridge.
The village of Amotherby, where most houses are situated, lies at the centre of the parish where the B1257 Malton to Helmsley road and the C20 (Amotherby Lane) cross, At the last count there were 152 dwellings in the parish--120 in the village, 9 at the edge of neighbouring Appleton-le-Street, 14 at Easthorpe and Hildenley, and 9 scattered towards the river. In January 2017 there were 299 electors on the electoral roll.
Although the area is primarily arable farmland there are 3 industrial employers (Malton Foods, BATA and Zetectics) situated in Amotherby. There is also a Primary School, the Queens Head Cantonese restaurant and pub, St Helens Church and a Parish (Village) Hall.
