Gartree was a hundred of Leicestershiremarker.

It was in the south-east of the county, roughly corresponding to today's Harboroughmarker district. The town of Market Harboroughmarker was its largest settlement. It gives its name to HMP Gartreemarker, and also to the Gartree electoral division of Leicestershiremarker.

The original meeting place of the hundred was the Gartree Bush, lying south west of Gaulbymarker. In 1750, this was moved to the Bull's Head at Tur Langtonmarker.
