Cargreen (Cornish: Karrekreun) is a small settlement in southeast Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated beside the River Tamar approximately two miles (3 km) north of Saltash.[1] It is in the civil parish of Landulph.

Cargreen has a yacht club[2] and once had a thriving industry ferrying flowers across the river to Devon.[3]
