Little Packington is a hamlet in the North Warwickshire district of the county of Warwickshire in England. It is situated just to the north west of Great Packington and outside the boundaries of Packington Park.

There is a small, interesting church dedicated to St Bartholomew. It is of Norman origin with medieval timber framing and 17th century internal additions. It has, however, been converted for use as a private dwelling and access is only accessible upon special request. The village now finds itself in the merged Meriden-Packington parish.

1½ miles north-east of the Church is Hermitage Manor, dating back to the 12th century; remnants of its buildings and moat still exist today. There is also an ancient sandstone footbridge, adjacent to a ford which crosses the river Blythe.
