Little Thorpe is a hamlet or village in County Durham, in England. It is situated between Easington and Peterlee.

This small settlement literally derives its name from the fact it is a small village, as "Thorpe" is Anglo-Saxon for village.

It seems to have been a community that was originally centred on a farmstead, and most of the buildings appear to be in the Elizabethan style, but are more probably Victorian in age.
