It lies about five miles south-west of Thirsk, seven miles east of Ripon, and twelve miles south of the county town of Northallerton.
The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It was part of the manor of Topcliffe at the time of the Norman invasion.
Asenby lies on the south bank of the River Swale and the majority of the surrounding land is given to farming.
