Strete is an enchanting coastal village ideally located in the South Hams. On the coast of Start Bay, this little village doesn’t just boast sea views but is in easy reach of bustling nearby towns such as Salcombe and Dartmouth.
Strete is nestled within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With easy access to the South West Coastal Path and a choice of brilliant beaches nearby, our Strete holiday cottages are for those wanting a breath of sea air and a taste of the great outdoors.
If you are wanting to holiday somewhere a little more off the beaten path, the peaceful village of Strete is a great option. Pack your walking boots and wetsuits and come and spend a restoring long weekend in the heart of South Devon.
The landscape around Strete is especially interesting as it has been remarkably crafted over the years by the weather. Walk up to Start Point Lighthouse on the exposed peninsular and take in the impressive geography (and often windy conditions) yourself!
Food and Drink in Strete
Traditional pubs, vibrant coastal cafes and smart restaurants… Strete and the surrounding countryside and coastline has some excellent options to suit all pockets and tastes.
The beaches are what make Strete such a wonderful place to visit. Visit Blackpool Sands for a spot of kayaking, supervised by lifeguards in the summer months. If you are looking for somewhere a little more private, Forest Cove is a glorious inlet from where you can swim in clear waters in peace.
