Rattery is a village and civil parish in Devon, England, a few miles from Buckfastleigh, Ashburton, and Dartington. The name is often interpreted as a variant of "Red Tree" and is listed in the Domesday Book as Ratreu.

The village is part of the electoral ward of Eastmoor. The ward population at the 2011 census was 2,321.[1]

Robert Herrick, the famous seventeenth-century poet, lived in the hamlet of Dean Prior on the edge of Rattery.
