Little Cawthorpe is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south-west from Legbourne, and 3 miles (5 km) south-east from the market town of Louth.

Little Cawthorpe red-brick church, dedicated to St Helen, was built in 1860 by R. J. Withers to replace an earlier church.[2] It was declared redundant in 1996 by the Diocese of Lincoln,[3] and is a Grade II listed building.[4]

The Manor House is a small red-brick country house dating from 1673 with some 20th-century alterations and additions, and is Grade II* listed.[5] The gate piers to the Manor House are Grade II listed and also date from 1673, although the wrought iron gates are 20th-century.[6]

The village public house is the 17th-century Royal Oak locally referred to as 'The Splash' due to the 200 metres (660 ft) long ford that runs adjacent to the premises.[7] Kenwick Park Golf Club lies to the north of the village.
