A cattle creep is a small, field-to-field access for farm animals, usually to allow passage beneath an obstacle such as a road, canal, or railwayembankment.

Due to the primary users being cattle, or other livestock, cattle creeps usually have a low head height, making them uncomfortable for humans to use.

On Dartmoor, in south west England, the term sheep creep is used to describe a purposefully constructed gap in the base of a drystone wallcommonly topped with a granite lintel. The idea was that the gap would allow sheep to pass from field to field but its deliberate size was too small for cattle or ponies to do likewise.
