Caldecott is a village in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. The civil parish population was 256 at the 2001 census increasing to 269 at the 2011 census.[3] It is located about four miles (6.4 km) south of Uppingham and about 2 miles north of Corby in Northamptonshire. The A6003 runs through the village; traffic flow on the bridge over the River Welland is controlled by traffic lights.

Caldecott is the most southerly village in Rutland.

There is one public house - The Plough Inn - by The Green on Main Street, and an Italian restaurant - Castle Italia - on the A6003 Rockingham Road to the south of the village.

There was once a railway station on the southern edge of the village. It was named after the neighbouring village of Rockingham, which was considered to be of more importance at the time. The railway station closed in 1966.
