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.
To interpret the released restriction changes the community were required to use their own judgement in respect of the advised safety.
Local feedback suggests there are many people from outside the area visiting and camping. This is not behaving responsibly! There was always going to be those who would flout the new rules and travel to the least affected area. Cafés and restaurants remain closed, there is a lack of open facilities, we do not have lifeguards on our beaches and toilets are still closed.
Most local-residents have resisted the temptation to break the rules.
With so many people visiting from outside the area it might be wise to wear face masks in the short-term whilst taking daily exercise, visiting family or collecting goods from the shop. It’s important we all continue to undertake appropriate social distancing measures and ensure that we do not gather in groups with people from outside our home. All part of the tracking process. Remember, our actions can affect others.
Before you leave your home. ‘Think Twice’. Is it necessary, is it safe? Personal responsibility is key to beating Covid 19. ‘Think Twice’ and help save lives.
