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.
A road closure will be in place from 11th January for an estimated period of six weeks on the A379 between Carehouse Cross and Stokenham Cross. This is to attend to the landslide in the narrow section and replace a collapsed section of retaining wall.
Due to narrow carriageway widths a road closure will be required to undertake the work safely, meaning traffic will need to be diverted. Those needing to visit Chillington Health Centre, Stokenham Primary School or Kingsbridge the official diversion for traffic from Strete is via Totnes Cross and Kingsbridge as we all know the back roads are not ideal especially at this time of the year. It is hoped the works will be completed in less than six weeks. However, allowances have to be made for unknown potential disruption issues. Click on this link for more details
