Little Packington is a hamlet in the North Warwickshire district of the county of Warwickshire, England.[1] It is situated just to the north west of Great Packington and outside the boundaries of Packington Park. Population details can be found under Coleshill

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.
