Caythorpe is a hamlet in Nottinghamshire, England. It is situated 10 miles (16 km) north-east from Nottingham, close to the River Trent. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 259.[1]

The hamlet has a water mill dated 1749.[2] A windmill stood in a field called Fairholme, later Woolf's Farm. This may be the mill referred to in an advertisement in the Nottingham Review of 1851: "Excellent Windmill containing two pair French Stones, dressing machine etc., cottage, stable, outbuildings, 7 to 8 acres land in occupation of Mr. Arnold." This mill is reputed to have been sold and transferred to Epperstone.[3] A windmill site is shown on the First Series Ordnance Survey map (grid reference SK654458)
