Little Stretton (otherwise Stretton Parva) is a small village and civil parish in the Harborough district of Leicestershire, England. The population is included in the civil parish of Burton Overy.

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).
