A family setting up camp, having picked a lovely spot over looking the sea.
Manor Farm Camping Site , Strete is situated on Totnes Road, just between the 40mph and the 20mph limit. There are approximately 6 acres available for camping. The fields are level or gently sloping with some shelter and a good view of the sea – Start Bay towards the mouth of the Dart.
Strete is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, to the east of Slapton Sands with Torcross at the western end. All this stretch of coastline is included in the South West long distance coastal footpath.
Strete is a peaceful haven from which to travel further afield to Dartmoor, Plymouth and Torbay and a day trip into Cornwall, across the Tamar is well within reach.
Near at hand the shingle ridge of Slapton Sands has the sea on one side and the fresh water Slapton Ley, wild bird sanctuary on the other. The three mile long beach comprises, east to west, Pilchards Cove, Strete Gate, Slapton Bridge and Torcross and is served by three car parks. Pilchards Cove is well known by naturists, acceptance being on an informal basis and a degree of discretion. Nowhere else along this stretch of beach are naked bodies accepted. (Pilchards Cove is the only naturist beach in the area and does NOT include Landcombe Cove.)
Blackpool Sands, privately run, is two miles east towards Dartmouth and caters for families. There are water sports facilities and a restaurant run by Venus Cafes. No dogs are allowed on Blackpool sands.
Dartmouth, five miles away, is an ancient port and home of Britannia Royal Naval College – sea fishing trips, river cruises and the Sailing Regatta (complete with fireworks and usually the Red Arrows) at the end of August.
Kingsbridge, ten miles west, is an old market town at the head of Salcombe estuary – with river cruises, sailing in the estuary and a very large sports hall with special course available and various courts for hire as well as a really good swimming pool.
Totnes, twelve miles north, is an ancient town, at the head of the Dart, dominated by Totta’s Ness (the Castle) with town wall walks, a swimming pool and its well loved alternative market every Friday.
