Kilnsey is a small village in Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, Englandmarker. It lies on the B6160 road, between the villages of Grassingtonmarker and Kettlewellmarker, near Arncliffemarker and just across the River Wharfemarker from Conistonemarker.

The most notable feature of Kilnsey is a large limestone cliff called Kilnsey Crag, overlooking the road and the River Wharfe from the west. The Crag is around 170 feet high, with an overhang of 40 feet. West from Kilnsey towards Malham Tarnmarker runs the historic Mastiles Lane, a Roman marching road, later an important drovers' way for Fountains Abbeymarker flocks to summer pasture on higher ground, approximately five miles distant. This is now a Dales walking track. The Old Hall in Kilnsey was medieval administrative site for wool trade. Most of the present building, well restored, dates from 1658.

Kilnsey has one pub, the Tennant Arms, a trout farm, and a small collection of houses.

The village hosts a large, annual agricultural show.
