Strete is a rather special village perched high on the coastline of Start Bay, within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Strete is a popular place to visit all year round but swells in the summer months, with the significant influx of visitors to this beautiful area. The stunning beach of Blackpool Sands is less than 2 miles away and Slapton Lay, Torcross and Slapton Sand about a mile away in the opposite direction.
