Little Livermere is a former village in England situated about 5 miles (8 km) north of Bury St. Edmunds, in an area of Suffolk known as the Breckland.

The village was almost entirely demolished in the 18th century when a park and mere were created in the grounds of the stately home, which was itself destroyed in the 1920s. All that remains of the village is the much decayed Church of St Peter and St Paul, which is roofless and considered unsafe, and a farmhouse that stands adjacent to the church.

The parish had a population of 40 (undated) and is located in the St. Edmundsbury District.

The village and parish of Great Livermere is discussed separately because it was in the Thedwastre Hundred.
