Creeton is a hamlet in the civil parish of Counthorpe and Creeton in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 3 miles (5 km) south west from Bourne and 3 miles (4.8 km) south from Corby Glen, on the River Glen.

The church holds a chained 1611 bible. In the churchyard are two examples of Saxon grave crosses, and 20 stone coffins considered to mark the interment of Cistercian monks of Vallis Dei abbey in the neighbouring Edenham parish.[2]
