Little Stainton is a village in the borough of Darlington and the ceremonial county of County Durham, England. It is situated a few miles west of Stockton-on-Tees. It is, in fact, a hamlet rather than a village, consisting of houses and farms that have no local service facilities except for a public telephone kiosk and bus stop. Until around 1960, it consisted of a group of individual farms, to which was added a set of four council houses with agricultural dwelling restrictions. In the late 1980s there was a significant change in the nature of the hamlet, with planning permission being granted for a series of private dwellings that have transformed Little Stainton into a rural agglomeration of dwellings, within which the farms now constitute a minority. Although much of the land around the dwellings is owned by the farms, many of the private dwellings have a substantial amount of land, ranging from to about . On one side of the street, a stream—Bishopton Beck—runs along the bottom of the gardens. It is also rumoured that the last witch in England was to be hanged in Little Stainton.

Little Stainton is a township in the parish of Bishopton, County Durham.
