    It has everything you could want for catering for yourselves with a large, modern kitchen /dining area. The location is stunning and just a short walk to the village pub! We stayed as a three generational family and the different living spaces meant there was room for everyone to have their own space. The only thing that would have improved the stay was air conditioning, but we were there over the hottest week of the year. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and hope to visit again .

The property

Skerries is a stunning detached house close to the heart of Strete.

Carefully refurbished, it is stylish accommodation with great views to the sea from big windows.

At the heart of the house you will find the big sociable country style kitchen with its dining table, leather sofa, TV and doors which slide open on a fine day to the terrace.

In the evenings snuggle up beside the glowing open fire in the comfy sitting room, also with glass terrace doors.

The bonus here is the additional spacious sitting room when you head down the flight of stairs from the kitchen, giving plenty of space for the family to spread out and relax.

The bedrooms ramble comfortably and generously over the ground and first floors.

The garden around the house is safely enclosed, with a sunny terrace for enjoying the coastal views over evening drinks, and private Mediterranean-style space to explore.

If you don't feel like cooking, wander out to the village restaurant or head to the historic old town of Dartmouth with a choice of excellent eateries.

Here you can also catch a movie at the cinema or take a trip on the steam railway or a river boat.

The shingle beach in Strete is charming, or you can walk along the Coast Path to a secluded cove or the big popular beaches at Blackpool Sands or Slapton.

Skerries is a lovely family base in a beautiful area.

About the location

STRETE

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.
