Strete itself benefits from a post office/general store, a public house, a parish church and a highly recommended restaurant. For commuting and access to the South Hams, Exeter has an international airport, Plymouth has a ferry terminal and Devon benefits from a comprehensive rail network and road links to the M5 motorway giving easy access to the rest of the UK and Europe.
