Obthorpe is a hamlet in the civil parish of Thurlby, in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 3 miles (5 km) south from Bourne, 6 miles (10 km) north-east from Stamford and less than 1 mile (1.6 km) west from the A15. Thurlby is the nearest village, 1 mile (1.6 km) to the north.

Obthorpe Lodge[further explanation needed] lies about 1 mile due east from the hamlet; both are on the Macmillan Way footpath.

Obthorpe is mentioned in the Domesday account as "Opetorp". The manor comprised 19 households and 17 freemen, and had a meadow and woodland, both of 20 acres (0.081 km2). Lordship in 1066 was held by Ulf Fenman, transferred to Gilbert of Ghent in 1086, who was also Tenant-in-chief.[1][2]
