With a friendly local pub (the King's Arms), a restaurant offering good food (The Laughing Monk) and also a village shop/post office, Strete is ideally placed for those wanting to explore this beautiful area of South Devon or further afield. The beaches of Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands are less than 5 minutes by car or a short walk along the South West Coastal path. There is also a regular local bus service to the historic town of Dartmouth where there are many interesting shops, sights and eateries. Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe are also only a few miles away. At Roxburgh House you can enjoy reasonably priced, comfortable accommodation and a wholesome, varied breakfast, locally sourced where available. You can choose from the separate twin- bedded barn in the garden with its own living area or a smaller double bedroom in the main house. The owner, Ingrid, has recently retired and is keen to welcome you to her cosy Victorian home which was once the village post office. She is always on hand to advise you about where to go and what to do. There are many books, maps and brochures of the area which you may borrow and Ingrid is happy to recommend walks, activities and restaurants nearby and provide you with anything which will make your stay more comfortable. THE BARN Separate to the main house, the barn sleeps 2 / 3 (there is a futon or space for own cot) and offers comfortable accommodation over 2 floors. The bedroom is light and airy and the living area has a fridge and tea/ coffee making facilities. It is ideal for couples or 2 friends who would like more privacy. The raised outside deck provides lovely views across the garden to surrounding countryside and the sea. Guests are welcome to relax in the South facing walled garden. Well behaved dogs can also stay in the barn(by arrangement for a small charge).More
