There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Cave, one in the Baronetage of England and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Both creations are extant as of 2008.

The Cave Baronetcy, of Stanford Hall, Leicestershire, was created in the Baronetage of England on 30 June 1641. For more information on this creation, see Cave-Browne-Cave baronets.

The Cave Baronetcy, of Cleve Hill, in the parish of Mangotsfield, in the County of Gloucester, of Sidbury Manor, in the parish of Sidbury, in the County of Devon, and of Stoneleigh House, in the parish of Clifton, in the City and County of Bristol,[1] was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 21 July 1896 for the banker Charles Cave. He was a descendant of General Sir Richard Cave, who was killed at the Battle of Naseby during the Civil War. The first Baronet's great-grandfather, John Cave (1736–1800), was the founder of the Cave bank of Bristol. As of 2018 the title is held by the first Baronet's great-great-great-grandson (the baronetcy having succeeded from father to son), the sixth Baronet, who succeeded in 2018.

Stephen Cave, elder brother of the first Baronet, was a politician who built Sidbury Manor which became the seat of the baronets.
