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.
South Ham District Council has confirmed that waste or recycling collections have been suspended until further notice.
Due to the adverse weather the Council has also closed its offices at Follaton House. Staff are still working remotely to provide as normal a service as possible.
Adverse weather conditions are also likely to affect the operation of the Dartmouth Lower Ferry Service during the next 48 hours.
Be aware that there is a risk of flooding in coastal areas from Start Point to Teignmouth, with high tides predicted to arrive along with Storm Emma.
Strete Gate and The Slapton Line are currently open but this may change.
Follow Devon County Council and the Coast Guard on social media (@devonalert @devonflood alert @MCA_media) and listen to local radio stations for the most up to date information about these conditions as the storm approaches.
