Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, short walk to bars and restaurants, private parking.

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

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.

Wonderful accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Heart of the Harbour...

  • 5 of 5

Great property in the heart of Brixham. Extremely well maintained with everything you could need for a home from home experience.

Three good sized bedrooms and very nicely furnished, the kitchen is very well equipped to cook all sorts of foods. The bathrooms are beautifully decorated being both stylish and practical.

The lounge diner being on the top floor has wonderful views out over the harbour. Particularly great in the evening.

A fabulous welcome waits for you when you enter the property, going the extra mile with little treats to make your visit special, even your pooch is catered for with bowls and towels.

Out and about there are many bars cafes and restaurants, all tastes being catered for.

Fantastic walks, lovely scenery, great food and wonderful property to stay in, what more could you want.

My friends and I had a most enjoyable stay and Jezzy my dog can't wait to return. I highly recommend this property for families and groups of friends.

The only negative I could possibly say about this property and its location is that it would not really be suitable for anyone with mobility problems...

Fantastic property and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the holiday cottage ,exceptionally clean and a fab location there was everything we needed at the cottage and lovely to have a bottle of wine and chocs left for us . The parking area was an added bonus as Brixham is very busy in August .We loved the location of the cottage as we were close to all the shops ,pubs and restaurants without having to drive . The harbour views were amazing and we were very fortunate with the weather .

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.
