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 the gateway to a wonderfully scenic stretch of coastal footpath which goes to Stoke Fleming, via the stunning Blackpool Sands in one direction and Strete Gate and Slapton Sands in the other. There is currently a collaboration with SHDC, DCC, Natural England, AONB, Coastal Footpath Association, the Ramblers Association, the Parish Council and others to provide a safe, off-road stretch of footpath from the village down to Strete Gate thus avoiding the necessity of walking along a particularly narrow stretch of the A379. It is hoped that work will commence in 2013.
Please contact the Parish Clerk with any ideas for articles, to offer photographs or for general feedback.
This is a further training and information evening hosted by the Westcountry Ambulance Service. This session will cover the use of the defibrillator by anyone in the parish who wishes to learn how to use it and also as an information session if you just want to see how it works - come along and see one in action.
