The village of Strete lies five miles southwest of Dartmouth in South Devon. The village lies near Slapton Sands and is part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The main road through the village is the A379 road between Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. In 2001 the population of the parish was just 520.

Strete is first mentioned in the history books as 'Streta' in 1194. By 1244 it was known as Strete. The name derives from Old English Straet, meaning a road or Roman road, providing evidence that the village lies on an ancient trackway.
