Just fifteen minute’s drive from Dartmouth lies the small village of Strete. Perfectly poised on the South West Coast Path it is set within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a picturesque gateway to the wonderful beaches and towns that dot the South Hams coastline.

Featuring an open-plan living arrangement on its top floor, Anchor Cottage is light-filled and spacious, with large windows lending an airy quality to the space, and dark timber trusses accentuating its modern décor. A roomy L-shaped sofa is the perfect place for relaxation and the crisp white colour scheme along with contemporary lighting add a touch of chic to the atmosphere. Amply equipped and well-designed the kitchen is ideal for whipping up anything from a simple breakfast to a delicious roast dinner, and homecooked creations can be shared and enjoyed together within the incorporated dining area. Downstairs, the cottage’s master bedroom features a comfortable king size bed with views out to the garden, creating a relaxing sanctuary in which to laze the mornings away. Treat yourself to coffee in bed or indulge in a lie-in or two; the slow pace of village life will have you unwinding from the moment you put your feet up.

A furnished patio to the front of the cottage means soaking up the Devonshire sunshine is a must, and for warmer evenings it’s the ideal place for enjoying alfresco refreshments whilst taking in the seaside air. Anchor Cottage sleeps two guests but with the sofa converting into a bed, it does provide additional sleeping for a further two guests.

This property accepts 1 well behaved small or medium dog as standard. 2 dogs are accepted on request.

Lovely break close to the coast in this well equipped cottage

Great cottage in quiet village. We were disappointed that the 3 local pubs were not serving food on our first night and that the village pub was closed all week. This meant we had to drive to eat out each night and we struggled to find places with availability. We didn’t sit out in the garden as it is not at all private with lots of people passing by and is not enclosed which meant the dog kept wandering up into the road. Surrounding beaches and towns within easy driving distance and Strete Gate beach is perfect with a small kiosk. We had a lovely week but it was a little remote for us.

Lovely stay in Strete

Strete is a great location in Start Bay .. handy for the beautiful local beaches and atmospheric town of Dartmouth. It’s right on the coastal path and lovely whichever direction you walk in. I can’t really give the house location a ‘5’ .. the views aren’t inspiring, but only a 2 mins walk to the actual coast. The house itself is very comfortable, nicely decorated (if you like the maritime theme) and was mainly in very good order. We couldn’t give 5/5 as we had 2-3 issues which weren’t well-resolved (or resolvable). Most of the towels were distinctly mildewy, we had to share the one decent one and it took some time to get fresh ones. The oven was unusable, covered in strong-smelling cleaning product, which someone came to try and take off, but it still smelled acrid and bleachy after he’d been so we didn’t risk it. We needed to use the sofa bed, which looks great but isn’t comfortable at all. The rest of the fittings were top-notch. These were relatively minor gripes, we really did have a lovely time and even though there aren’t sea views it’s a great location for a holiday in Start Bay / South Hams. Thank you

Hi Paul, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. I will pass this feedback onto the property managers so they can look to improve the issues mentioned. We cannot grow or improve without guest honesty so thank you for being so forthcoming. We hope to welcome you back through Luxury Coastal doors again one day. Best Wishes, Luxury Coastal
