Little Stretton is a village in Shropshire, England.

It lies on the B5477 to the south of the town of Church Stretton (and is part of the civil parish of that town); similarly, the small village of All Stretton lies to the north of Church Stretton on the same road. A milestone in the centre of the village on the B5477, which is called Ludlow Road at this point, indicates that Ludlow is 14 miles away, to the south. The centre of Church Stretton is via the B5477.

The River Ashes Hollow runs through the village and it is a popular place to begin walks up the Long Mynd. The village lies between 180 and 188 metres above sea level. The Ragleth Hill lies immediately to the east of the village, on the other side of the Welsh Marches Line and A49. Little Stretton once had its own railway halt: Little Stretton Halt railway station.

To the southwest are the hamlets of Minton and Hamperley, which are part of Church Stretton parish and are included within the parish ward of Little Stretton. Little Stretton was previously a civil parish itself, but the whole parish merged with that of Church Stretton and a large part of All Stretton, to form the modern day parish of Church Stretton, which is sometimes referred to as "Church Stretton and Little Stretton".
