Creedy is an historic estate in the parish of Sandford, near Crediton in Devon. It is named from its location on the west side of the River Creedy. It was the seat of the Davie family (created Davie baronets in 1641) from about 1600 until the late 20th century.

It was first built in about 1600, rebuilt in 1846, burnt down in 1915 and rebuilt 1916-21.
