Streat is a village in the Lewes District of East Sussex, England, 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of Burgess Hill and 5 miles (8.0 km) west of Lewes, within the South Downs National Park. The parish covers an area of 5.2 km2 (2.0 sq mi) with a population of 158 at the UK census of 2011.

The 11th-century parish church has no dedication; the ecclesiastical parish is joined with that of Westmeston.

Streat Place is a manor house built in the early 17th century by Walter Dobell who died in 1624. The building has an E shaped plan with central porch and projecting wings. Its national listing gives it as Grade II* and reveals its architectural merit as including its entire facing of knapped flints with long and short ashlar quoins to each window bay.
