Pool-in-Wharfedale or Pool in Wharfedale, usually abbreviated to Pool, is a village and civil parish in the Lower Wharfedale area, 10 mi north of Leeds city centre and 2 mi east of Otley. It is in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough, West Yorkshire and within the historic boundaries of the West Riding of Yorkshire. It is in the LS21 (Otley) postcode district.

Pool is connected to the rest of West Yorkshire and surrounding areas by trunk roads and buses.

It had a population of 2,284 at the 2011 Census, up from 1,785 in 2001.

Pool is a scenic village and enjoys views in most directions, including The Chevin, the Arthington Viaduct and Almscliffe Crag. Running past the outskirts of Pool is the River Wharfe, which is prone to flooding. Nearby is Pool Bank, a steep hill.

The village amenities include two pubs, a post office, a garage, one primary school, a petrol station, a sports and social club and the village hall. It also has two parks and miles of riverside walks. The church of St Wilfred was built in 1839; its architect was Robert Dennis Chantrell.

There is a parish council, the lowest tier of local government.

In recent years the village has rapidly increased in size with the construction of many new homes.

On 5 July 2014, the Tour de France Stage 1 from Leeds to Harrogate passed through the village.
