Carleton Rode is a village (population 727) in Norfolk, England, situated approximately five miles south-east of Attleborough. The village is extremely rural and is spread out over 10.91 square kilometres (4.21 sq mi) in the South Norfolk District.

One of the earliest mentions of this place is in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it is mentioned amongst the lands given to Roger Bigod by the King. The manor given to Roger included 30 acres (120,000 m2) of land and two churches. The parish has some of the oldest buildings in the whole part of England making it a treasure.
