Read on to discover more about this lovely village and our bespoke collection of by the sea cottages in the area.

Things to Do in Strete 

Strete is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Start Bay. This 15 mile stretch of coastline runs from Start Point in the south and Warren Point in the north. Unlike a lot of Devon, the Start Bay AONB is not known for sun, sea and sand, but it is incredibly fascinating. This rocky terrain that characterises Start Bay is often the scene of some of Devon’s most mighty storms and has been for centuries, leading to some really fascinating geological formations. Geologists and Storm Chasers may be extra keen to visit such a dynamic spot! 

Start Bay is also home to one of the most exposed peninsulas in Britain, extending almost a mile out into the sea. Called Start Point, the peninsula’s name comes from the Anglo-Saxon term ‘steort’, meaning tail. There is a car park at Start Point and you can walk along the peninsula to the famous lighthouse site and take in the spectacular views. The walk is not suitable for everyone, as the ground under foot can be a little treacherous, but there are plenty of flat, accessible walks in and around Strete for everyone to enjoy. 

No trip to Strete is complete without a visit or two to The King’s Arms. The pub is a true staple of the community, as it is actually owned by village residents! They serve great food, have a large garden and are super family and dog friendly. Although the King’s Arms is the main food and drink spot in Strete, the surrounding villages are home to many culinary delights. Highlights include The Venus Cafe at Blackpool Sands, Radius 7 in Stoke Fleming and Cafe Alf Fresco in Stoke Fleming, all offering food with a view as they overlook the stunning South Devon coast. 

So, if it’s village life with a sea air and long walks you’re after, then you can’t get a much better destination than Strete!
