Little Sodbury is an English village which, since 1996, has been in the unitary authority of South Gloucestershire within the ceremonial county of Gloucestershire, England. It is located between Chipping Sodbury, to the west, Old Sodbury to the south, Badminton, and the A46 road to the east and Horton and Hawkesbury, to the north.

The "manor of Sodbury" comprises the nearby Chipping Sodbury and Old Sodbury, but is distinct from the manor of Little Sodbury.

Little Sodbury Manor is originally 15th century, the home of Sir John Walsh who employed William Tyndale as chaplain and tutor to his grandchildren in 1522-3; by tradition Tyndale began his translation of the Bible in his bedroom here.
