    “Would like you to add on the listing that the cottage is remote and you need to use a car.”

    Also the road outside the cottage is pretty dangerous. Lovely cottage but in the wrong place.

The property

½ mile from the centre of Strete, set above the A379 between Slapton and Dartmouth and with spectacular sea views along the coast between them, a stunning, Grade II listed, upside down coach house.

Dating from 1832, it has been beautifully refurbished.

Terrific views too from the private, good-sized, enclosed garden with lawn and patio (table/chairs).

Inside, elegant and relaxed with natural linens and gentle hues.

Front door to stairs up to open-plan living/dining/kitchen with woodburner, Smart TV and views to Start Point in one direction and the mouth of the Dart estuary in the other.

Beautiful kitchen area (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment, electric cooker).

Downstairs, two bedrooms - a pretty double, and a single.

Bathroom (bath, separate shower, washbasin, underfloor heating).

Ground floor cloakroom with loo, basin and utility area with washing machine.

Due to the age and character of the property please note that the staircase is quite narrow with a curve at the top leading into the sitting room.

A fabulous, romantic coastal spot at any time of year.

Strete: cliff-top village (pub, PO/shop) ½ mile walk along a well-used road to the shingle beach (pay and display car parking also available at the beach).

Coast Path walk to secret cove (¾ mile).

Blackpool Sands (coarse sand, The Venus Café, Restaurant, Takeaway and Watersports), 1½ miles, and, a mile away, the magnificent crescent of Slapton Sands and Slapton Ley nature reserve (birdwatching, walks).

Dartmouth (restaurants, cinema, river trips, steam railway), 5 miles'.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Dartmouth 4.8 miles

Strete is a village looking over Start Bay just south of Dartmouth. The hills and countryside that encircle the village to the west converge on the memorable coastline forming one of the most visually striking images in the South Hams. There is a post office and general store in the village along with a lovely church plus the well renowned Laughing Monk restaurant. There is a small community area where you can picnic and walk your dog with its wildlife section and notable views of Start Bay. A few short miles in either direction brings you to the magical crescent shaped family beach at Blackpool Sands and the three mile stretch of Slapton Sands. Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon.
