Addlethorpe is a small village situated just off the A52 west of Ingoldmells in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.

Addlethorpe was mentioned in Domesday Book of 1086 when it consisted of 102 households, and was listed as having two churches.

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Nicholas and is a Grade I listed building dating from the 15th century, being restored in 1875. Both the tower and the font are 15th-century, and the pulpit is early 18th-century. It lost its chancel in 1706. In the churchyard is the lower half of a 14th-century churchyard cross, which is both grade II listed, and a scheduled monument.

The Wesleyan Methodists built a chapel here in 1837, which was rebuilt in 1968. It is now part of the Skegness Coast Methodist Churches group, with services every Sunday.

Addlethorpe Windmill was built about 1830 to replace an earlier post mill, and was constructed of tarred red brick. It ceased working in 1944, and today is missing its cap. It is a Grade II listed building.

The golf course is and has an unusual par of 74. The village is home to many caravan sites including The King's Head site and Cottage Farm.
