Walpole House lived up to expectations! We had been really impressed with the images of the cottage and liked the location of the property... and we were really chuffed with the place. The property has been really tastefully decorated and is really cosy and worked well for our family (5 of us).
We loved the fact we could walk to the nearby cove on the coastal path and also had great beaches and picturesque towns a short distance away. A great week!
We have just returned from a few days at Walpole House. What a lovely place, restored to a high standard with original features. The house sleeps 6 people and is well appointed. Everything you could need, dishwasher, washing machine microwave and range cooker. A modern bathroom with power shower. Located in the centre of Strete opposite the village shop. Unfortunately the pub was not open and is up for sale.
We went to the laughing monk restaurant a short stroll away for a very good meal.
Strete is an excellent location to visit the South Hams.
Part of the same group as the previous reviewer! Such a gorgeous place with a wonderful atmosphere and perfect location, thanks for having us!
Five of us going to a local wedding needed a place to stay within walking distance of the venue, and once we found Walpole House decided to make it a 5 night holiday. The house was stylish, welcoming and comfortable. There was a 'welcome' bottle of wine, a gift of a tea towel and the shopping I had requested waiting for us on arrival. The Rayburn was easy to use (instructions provided) and kept the house and hot water nice and warm. A large wardrobe on the landing and drawers in all the bedrooms provided ample space for all our wedding finery and holiday clothes. The shower was a delight - hot and powerful. It was nice to find a dishwasher to use. Although there's no parking at the property that didn't matter - we travelled in 3 cars and all found free of charge parking within a few metres of the house. The local shop had everything we needed and everyone was very friendly. On Sunday we had a roast at the Kings Arms - lovely food and good value. We shall definitely be visiting Walpole House again.

We are shortly to leave after a great 5 day break at Walpole House. In a lovely village between two great beaches - Blackpool and Slapton sands - with a great shop and nice pub within a 100 feet from your front door. as well as a good restaurant (The Laughing Monk again within 100 feet) House beautifully decorated and also very well equipped with cooking utensils, board games and children books to keep anyone occupied. Wifi connection also strong. If you are familiar with the area you vey well placed for Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Totnes and many others. We have an 18 month old daughter and it worked well for us.
