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.
Thanks to Phil Cruse for recovering the temporary sign used last summer at Strete Gate.
Due to its location, Strete Gate Car Park is often overlooked by visitors to the area.
Following the collapse of Slapton Line in March 2018, visitors to the area to inspect the extent of the damage found the route terminated at Strete Gate. This caused some unreasonable parking that resulted in temporary chaos.
To help with the parking restrictions imposed, Strete Parish Council erected a temporary sign to inform visitors where the car park at Strete Gate could be located.
It was decided to make the temporary sign permanent for the 2019 season and Phil was asked to help.
The car park has a pay and display parking meter and this year the money received goes towards the maintenance of the toilets as well as the car park.
Regular users and visitors are asked to respect the parking restrictions in the area and to pay the car park charges due for the time spent in the car park.
