Strete is a small parish with a population of approximately 430. Although this number changes frequently with the seasons, we do have a lot of activities going on in the Village. There is an excellent Parish Hall equipped with many modern facilities, which can be hired for all types of functions and meetings at a reasonable cost. For bookings, speak to Danni on 07841 505797.
Blackbird Wood is a small community woods area where you can picnic and walk the dog. You are also welcome to walk your dog in our Village Green, with its wildlife section, picnic benches and stunning views of Start Bay. The village also has a children’s play park with climbing frames and a picnic bench.
