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.
With Heavitree Brewery now advertising the pub for sale and a few interested members of the community enquiring if there is support to find a way to re-open the pub, a Public Meeting has been arranged to provide members of the community the opportunity to express their views and ideas. The Kings Arms was registered as an Asset of Community Value in 2015 following the suggestion that Heavitree Brewery planned to submit an application to SHDC for a 'change of use' of the pub to residential accommodation.
If the Kings Arms is to re-open it needs the support of the community or it will be lost forever and with it a place for friends to meet, greet visitors and support the tourist facilities in the village. All part of a sustainable village providing the quality of life we all enjoy.
Now is the time for the community to decide what it wants to do.
