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. The population at the 2001 census was 178, increasing to 207 at the 2011 census.[3]

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 was adapted to house 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. New housing estates are being built in the parish as Oakham expands.
