Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England, which is managed 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 location to take a break in your journey. Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
The latest South Hams second home statistics reveal that one in every 12 homes in the South Hams is a second home. The third highest in the UK.
Recent data released by Government shows there are 3,835 second homes in the South Hams. This figure is more than seven times higher than the national average.
South Hams District Council recognise there is a high proportion of second homes in the area and are supporting Neighbourhood Plans that limit second homes by introducing a principal residence policy that should result in restricted occupancy being applied on new developments .
Steering Group members of Strete Neighbourhood Plan have incorporated a Principal Residency Policy into the plan in response to comments from the community.
A Neighbourhood Plan gives Strete community a much stronger voice in shaping the future of the village. Without it there is a risk that development may be introduced that does not consider the views of those who live and work in the parish. The plan will sit within the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan currently being finalised.
Once finalised and approved, both will have statutory force.
Mark & Kat at The Kings Arms have arranged a menu and price for Strete Lunch
They have put together a 3 small course Strete Lunch Club menu in which they have included for everyone’s dietary preferences.
The date planned is Thursday 15th November at 1:30 pm.
Anyone interested should make contact at The Kings Arms to book a place and confirm their choice of meal.
It will be nice to have the opportunity to welcome new people to the village and to get together with old friends whilst supporting Mark & Kat in their new venture.
Now that Slapton Line has re-opened we can all look forward to contact with Slapton, Torcross, Chillington and Kingsbridge and getting back to normal.
Let’s help Mark & Kat get The Kings Arms back to being a regular meeting place as well.
The Remembrance Service at St Michael's Church.
Ten members of the community tolled the bell of the church ten times each to mark the occasion of 100 years since the end of WW1 in 1918.
This was followed by the lighting of the beacon as requested on behalf of her Majesty by the Queen’s Pageant Master Bruno Peek.
Thanks to Kate Gill at Manor Farm Camp Site much enjoyment was had by those who tucked in to food recipes from 100 years ago.
