Greete is a hamlet and civil parish in Shropshire, England.

It is situated between the villages of Caynham and Burford, about 5.2 miles (8.4 km) southeast of Ludlow. To the west flows the Ledwyche Brook, which is the border with Herefordshire. The area is hilly and through the middle of the parish flows the Stoke Brook.[1]

There is a church, dedicated to St James, which remains in use by the Church of England (Greete falling within the Diocese of Hereford).[2]
