The Cassiobury Estate is a residential area of Watford in Hertfordshire, England.

It is formed by two areas of housing: one to the north-east of Cassiobury Park and the other to the south. Both are built on land that was formerly part of the estate of Cassiobury House, house of the Earls of Essex, which was located where Temple Close now sits.

At the north end of Cassiobury, outside the Borough of Watford in the District of Three Rivers, is The Grove, the former estate and house of the Earls of Clarendon. This has been converted into a luxury hotel and with extensive grounds.
