Little Stretton (otherwise Stretton Parva) is a small village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire.

Within the parish, to the west of Little Stretton village, lies a deserted medieval village called Stretton Magna (or Great Stretton).

Gartree Road, a Roman Road, runs through the parish, adjacent to both Little and Great Stretton, and is the reason for those settlements' names (see: Stretton).
