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.
Unlike the UK - and England in particular - many parts of Europe kept major restrictions in place for much longer. Whereas England fully unlocked in mid-July, parts of Europe did not do this until the autumn, and in many places kept tougher restrictions in place even as they did.
Part of this was to do with timing. The UK was hit by the more infectious Alpha variant and then Delta sooner, meaning it was in a position to push ahead with unlocking before others... The UK has, in effect, already had the wave the rest of Europe is seeing and has managed to avoid being swamped by it.

The NHS has been changing the way it provides health services, moving away from a reliance on hospital beds to provide more services in people’s communities. Building work started in June on a new £4.8m Health and Wellbeing Centre in Dartmouth, which is due to open in late Summer 2022. This brings together a range of services in a single, purpose-designed centre including GPs, social care workers, Dartmouth Caring, community nurses and therapists, and a pharmacy - to better support individuals and the community as a whole.
Part of the funding for the new building will come from the sale or re-development of the former Dartmouth and Kingswear Cottage Hospital site, which closed in 2017. The Trust’s Board of Directors recognised that it would not be cost-effective or within the NHS remit to develop the site but, considering the importance of the site to the community, the Trust agreed to explore how future re-development could benefit the local community.
