The Freake Baronetcy, of Cromwell House in the Parish of St Mary Abbots, Kensington, and Fulwell Park in the Parish of Twickenham, both in the County of Middlesex, was a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 23 May 1882 for the architect, builder and philanthropist Charles Freake. The third Baronet was a polo player and also served as High Sheriff of Warwickshire in 1939.

The title became extinct on the death of the fourth Baronet in 1951 but whose sole child married the heir apparent to the O'Brien Baronetcy and became mother of that title's two prospective holders.
