The village contains shops, a school, and a fine 18th century inn called the Queen's Head. It retains a good community spirit despite some housing development. It also has it's own Lawn Tennis Club at St Peters Park.

Little Eaton is surrounded by moors and woodland which offer attractive views over the Derwent Vale, inspiring at least one local artist, James Preston to recapture it in oils and water colour. Another local hero was T.P.C Wilson a somewhat forgotten war poet and writer who died in the trenches in 1918.
