Collyweston is a village and civil parish about three miles southwest of Stamford on the road (A43 road) to Kettering.

The village is on the southern side of the Welland valley east of Tixover. The River Welland, at the point nearby to the northwest, is the boundary between Rutland and Northamptonshire.

Collyweston Palace which had been the home of Lady Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and mother of Henry VII, was dismantled about 1640.
