Barleythorpe is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. It is located about a mile (1.6 km) north-west of Oakham.

Barleythorpe Hall was a home of Lord Lonsdale and later an elderly person's home (until 2006). Alongside was the training and conference centre of EEF East Midlands and Mid-Anglia which now houses Rutland County College and Oakham United Football Club.

Until January 2007, Main Street was the A606 but the village now benefits from the Oakham Bypass.
