Little Wymondley is a village situated between Hitchin and Stevenage in Hertfordshire, England. Paradoxically, it has a larger population than its near neighbour Great Wymondley. At the 2011 Census the population of the village was included in the civil parish of Wymondley.

It has several interesting houses, including the moated Bury of the 16th and 17th centuries, the fine 17th century Hall, the late Georgian Wymondley House, and Wymondley Priory, an early 13th century foundation turned into a house in the 16th and 17th centuries.

From 1799 until 1832/33, Wymondley House at Little Wymondley was the location of a dissenting academy for the education of future nonconformist ministers. The academy went under various names, including Wymondley College.
