Lopes is a spacious quayside house overlooking the fishing harbour, marina, fish market, and with commanding views across Torbay and Lyme Bay. Lopes was built during the 1700's. Once a pub; in 1860 it was known as 'The Lopes Arms'. Since then it has gone through several transformations, but is still at the heart of the fishing town, always bustling with activity during the Easter and Summer months, and is only minutes walk from the many bars, restaurants, shops and the coastal path.
Unusually for a quayside property Lopes has private off-road parking for two cars only a few minutes walk away.
With three bedrooms, two bathrooms a utility room and a small courtyard ideal for drying off swimwear after a day on the beach, Lopes is ideal for families wishing to explore Brixham and the surrounding area. In one of the bedrooms the two single beds can be fixed together and be made up as a double if required (please advise at time of booking). The living area is on the third floor to take best advantage of the panoramic views. From here you can observe every sailboat, power boat and fishing boat that enters and leaves Brixham harbour.
Breakwater Beach and Shoalstone Seawater Pool are within easy walking distance. Catching crabs on the quayside is very popular and of course there is the replica Golden Hind to visit and pirates are ever-present!
Despite being built nearly two hundred years ago, Lopes has spacious rooms (especially compared to many of the fishermen's cottages), and has recently been fully modernised to an exceptionally high standard.

About Chris Bryson
Julia and I have lived in Brixham for eight years. We had long wished to move to this area and now wish we had done it sooner!
Chris Bryson purchased this House in 2014
Why Chris Bryson chose Brixham Civil Parish
Lopes was the house I just had to have as soon as I saw it - its location is perfect.
What makes this House unique
Hardly any other quayside properties can offer private off-road parking. Most people renting around the harbour are left hunting for parking spaces in the busy car parks and, further afield, on the roads without yellow lines. The two parking spaces are about 350 metres from Lopes - four or five minutes walk.

Was well impressed with accommodation and location. Everything supplied. Bathrooms immaculate. Lovely decor. Amazing views over the harbour. Short distance from the town. Even thou it was pet friendly the whole accommodation was immaculate. Car parking was not to far away. Would well recommend. Would definitely be staying again.
Great location to explore Brixham
First impression - meticulously clean - would like to have the housekeeper!
Very nicely positioned next to harbour (the fish get unloaded pretty early in the morning in case you're a light sleeper)...close to many places to eat and shop.
Be aware that Brixham, like most Devon coastal towns, is hilly - expect to climb a bit while you are there but you will get fantastic views in return.
Beautifully refurbished three story house - quality and taste throughout - well done!
We had a wonderful week, right in the heart of Brixham harbour, a minute from lovely restaurants, walks along the coastal path and all the shops and attractions. The hose is amazing and we were made very welcome by the owner, Chris.
Can’t recommend this place highly enough!
The website and previous reviews boded well but did not fully convey quite how good the Lopes turned out to be! It was spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed - the heating was very effective which was just as well during the icy gales we experienced! All the bedrooms were of a good size with loads of storage capacity, the family and en-suite bathrooms were big too - plus there is an additional downstairs loo and utility room. My wife appreciated the little touches like having a hair drier in each bedroom. The top floor lounge/dining area/kitchen was spacious, comfortable, functional and with a great view. I spent ages watching the boats and ships coming and going using my Ship Finder app and the binoculars provided! It's very close to the harbour with all the pubs and restaurants (Rockfish is 50m away!) without seeming to suffer any of the associated noise. The harbour was also great for crabbing with the kids and it's not far to go for a walk along the breakwater or up onto Berry Head.
Would thoroughly recommend!
First class in every way
The house was beautiful and spotless first class location and child friendly a real home from home , would definitely stay again in a heart beat
An amazing place to stay. Close to all amenities and beautiful views
What a beautiful property. Every room is equipped for all your needs. With lots of extra little touches. One of the best places we have stayed. Exceptionally clean, furnished, amazing views, so much more can be said, just go and stay there and you won't want to leave.
Brixham is an excellent place to be based for exploring South Devon. Dartmouth, with it's marina, castle and naval college, Dartmoor national park for awe-inspiring walks including the mysterious Wistmans Wood, and quaint Totnes town are just some of the places of interest.
