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.
So many things we enjoy are under threat from the restrictions being imposed to reduce the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid. We all love to meet up and socialise with friends and neighbours in our homes, at the shop, at church and in the pub. To stop this threatens the way we live. There are many conflicting arguments that are creating confusion to know what to do for the best. We all want to enjoy a trip to our favourite restaurant and spend an evening with loved ones or friends without the fear of becoming infected. The scientific advice is to get the booster jab for extra protection. Strete residents have the advantage of living in a community where there is open space that will help deflect the risk of becoming infected. Getting the booster jab will increase every individuals resistance and help to protect loved ones, friends and neighbours. With the booster jab and face coverings we can continue to move around freely and do most of the things we enjoy. More importantly we can 'Get On With Life'. Many businesses/venues have worked hard to provide a safe and welcoming environment for us to enjoy. If they are not supported those businesses/venues may not survive. Be cautious but not to the point where socialising and living stops. Make the most of social interaction that's on offer to help keep your mental health in good shape.
