About the property

House in Strete, Nr. Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Situated Within it's Own Garden in Extensive Grounds Overlooking the Beach


The lodge is sited in one of the loveliest areas in England - a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with the freshwater lagoon of Slapton Ley at it's heart. The lodge has it's own garden within extensive grounds which overlook the long crescent stretch of Slapton Sands and the craggy headland that curves around to Start Point lighthouse. Refurbished in a contemporary style the lodge has wonderful sea views and sits above the shingle beach at Strete Gate - just 10 minutes walk away. The award winning Blackpool Sands is a couple of miles away and the historic naval port of Dartmouth is within striking distance with it's wealth of galleries, shops and cafes and restaurants

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Such a lovely cottage on such a beautiful stretch of coastline. We shall remember this holiday long after our tans have faded.'

'A wonderful holiday spent in the best holiday home we have stayed in.'

'We have stayed in many places in the South Hams area, but this has got to be the best. It has lovely views of Start Bay and we have enjoyed them whilst eating breakfast outside almost every day.'

Holiday Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is wonderfully equipped and comfortable. The owners seem to have thought of everything that guests might need to enhance their stay. It is also very well placed for holiday visits to beaches and places of interest. We can think of nothing to suggest by way of improvements. It is perfect!

Well chilled

  • 5 of 5

What can I say - apart from that lovely lodge giving me the reason to de-clutter.

We both had a splendid time and cant wait to come back if you will have us.

Seventh heaven for an overworked financial person.

Car: necessary


The lodge overlooks the shingle beach at Strete Gate and a short walk through the grounds of the main house will bring you to the coast road - from there it's a 5 minute walk to to the beach. From Strete Gate the coast continues on to Slapton Sands and Torcross both a few minutes drive away. The award winning family beach at Blackpool Sands is two miles away. There are lots of beautiful beaches in the area and the sandy beaches at Hope Cove, Bantham and Salcombe are worth a visit.


A car is essential and you are ideally placed to drive along the coast road to the nearby towns of Dartmouth or Kingsbridge. The nearest train station is Totnes and you are on the main bus route from Plymouth to Dartmouth via Kingsbridge. There is a ferry service across the river from Dartmouth to Kingswear and riverboat services run between Dartmouth and many other riverside locations and harbours.


Driving distances in minutes (approx) - Dartmouth 15 minutes, Kingsbridge 15 minutes, Totnes 25 minutes, Salcombe 40 minutes, Plymouth 50 minutes, Torquay 60 minutes, Exeter 75 minutes.

Further Details:

For provisions there is a nearby farm shop with a deli and butcher as well as the local village post office and store. Alfresco cafes and sea food restaurants can be found on the sea front at Torcross.
