Herresta is a large estate in Södermanland County in Sweden, located outside Mariefred. It has been in the possession of the Paus family since 1923.

The manor lies beautifully adjacent to Carl Adolph Grevesmühl. His descendants sold the manor to the Norwegian count Christopher de Paus in 1923. Himself childless, he bequeathed the estate to a distant relative, Herman Paus, who was married to a granddaughter of Count Leo Tolstoy, the Russian novelist. The manor is currently owned by their descendants.

As of 1907, the estate included Herresta säteri and additionally 13 agricultural properties, totalling 15 mtl.
