“Classy and comfortable”
Reviewed 14 August 2008

Had a 2 night stay in this superb B&B in a rainy July 2008. The accommodation is decorated to a classy and high standard.

After being welcomed with tea and cake, we were shown to our room. A twin with sea views, and the view alone is enough to put a smile on your face in the mornings, let alone getting up for the wonderful breakfast (great sausages)!

Stuart and Kevin are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. We took a walk to Dartmouth from the B&B along a coastal route, which I would highly recommend (even in the rain). Maps are provided in the lounge area. Top restaurants surround the accommodation within walking distance, or take a BBQ to the nearby beach in the evening!

Throughly enjoyable stay, with all the comfort one would require from a top B&B (especially after a week in a camper van as we had)!

Have already recommended to friends and famliy. An ideal place to base yourself away from the expensive Salcombe and explore the region.

We stayed at Strete Barton for 3 nights from the 5th to the 8th August and, from previous reviews, we knew that it was good but in actual fact, it was FANTASTIC! The house was spotlessly clean and the decor was fabulous. We were made to feel 'at home' both by Kevin and Stuart. Kevin greeted us with tea and cakes and Stuart even did our washing when our clothes got wet through in a downpour! The only complaint we had, which we did mention at the time, was that Stuart's breakfast were so lovely, we wished that he would do evening meals too!! If you're visiting this part of the country, don't bother searching around for the best B & B just book Strete Barton because you won't find a better one, guaranteed.

We stayed for 3 nights the first week in July 08 and I wish we could have stayed for longer. This was the best bed & breakfast we have stayed in. The location was beautiful in the stunning south hams area. The house was immaculate and the rooms were amazing. Stuart was a fantastic host, very welcoming and always able to offer advice of where to go and where to eat in the local area. We will definitely be back and we can highly recommend this bed & breakfast. I hope there will be space for us when we come back!

Stuart is a fabulous host, very obliging & friendly, four of us had a fabulous stay at Strete Barton House. The rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean & tastefully furnished & the location excellent. The breakfast is extremely good with a extensive selection. Stete Barton house & Stuart are both simply delightful. First class, 5 stars accommodation.

My husband and I have been visiting the Dartmouth area for 10 years and with such lovely walking on the coastal path, taking our dog Beau, a Welsh Springer, is essential. It is rare to find a luxury property willing to take dogs, and we were delighted with both the ambience and the welcome. We stayed in the adjoining cottage (no dogs in the main house) which was beautifully appointed; comfortable bed, great shower, flat screen tv and wood burner (good for winter!). The garden is large with stunning views overlooking Start Bay and perfect for Beau, as it adjoins the common land where the locals walk their dogs. Breakfast was just right - choice of cooked and/or fresh fruit, yoghurts, toast. We were throroughly pleased with Stuart's dinner recommendations, which he booked for us; the Kings Arms (30 second walk!) and the Normandy Arms in Blackawton. Food and service in both were near perfect. It really was a wonderful couple of days and we plan to go back in the winter and try out the wood burner!

We stayed on a late break of 4 days and struck lucky with Strete Barton. Fantastic bedroom with views of the sea and fitted out to a really high standard with 4 poster bed and stylish up to the minute furnishings. Guests lounge and dining room equally good & enjoyed the same coastal views

Stuart could not have been more helpful, lots of advice on eating out and happy to book tables for us at local restaurants.

Breakfasts were excellent with fresh fruit salad, fruit & freshly cooked full English (if you could manage it) or lesser variations - whatever was to your taste. Range of marmalade, honey & jams, marmite etc to accompany wholemeal or white bread, juices & tea/ filter coffee - all beautifully presented and freshly cooked.

Overall an excellent establishment run in a most persoanl and professional manner in a beautiful part of Devon

We stayed for two nights at Strete and were made very welcome by Stuart. We stayed in the cottage which has it's own entrance and private lounge, just like a suite in a hotel but a lot quieter. Breakfast was plentiful, along with a detailed weather report and the day's newspaper.

Stuart is very knowledgable about the area and was able to suggest places to go, walks to do and places to eat. There are two good places to eat within a 2 minute stroll, lovely beaches and lovely views of the sea.
