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 Hams District Council's Executive decided a pay on entry system will now be installed around the District at many toilets. The proposed fee is 20p.
This will go towards their running costs and protect them from closure.The toilets chosen to have a pay on entry system installed includes Slapton Line.
However, the recent storm damage at Slapton Memorial toilets has left the septic tank very close to the beach and at risk of failing in another storm.
This could cause a serious pollution incident. Relocating the septic tank is unlikely to solve the problem, as well as being very expensive, so these toilets will close.
Storm Emma had a huge impact on the area and the beach has receded a long way inland very quickly.
