Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England. It is run and administered by Strete Parish Council.
Strete is about a fifteen minute drive from Dartmouth. It is to be found on the high coastal ground at the eastern end of Slapton Sands. It's a good place to stay if you like exploring the local beaches and is also convenient for Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Strete is situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and with a variety of accommodation in the village, it is an ideal area to take a break in your journey to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Fancy a walk?! We are thrilled to announce that the long-awaited new stretch of the South West Coast Path is now open to the public! This long-held dream of a new route to provide a safe, off-road path from Strete to Strete Gate Beach has finally been realised. It was a collaboration between DCC, Natural England, AONB, South West Coast Path Association, the Ramblers Association and of course Strete Parish Council.
The entrance is just a short walk from Post Office in the centre of the village and takes you across private land to emerge at the bottom end of Old Hill, which was the previous route. This in turn drops straight down to the edge of Strete Gate Car Park. The new path is steep in places as it covers an approximate 400' drop but steps have been created to enhance your safety.
We are sure you will love the dramatic views!
