Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, short walk to bars and restuarants, 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 five 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 South Hams

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.

WEEKEND BREAK AWAY

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend break with our friends, the house had everything we needed. It was comfortable and very well equipped.

The communication with both HomeAway and the property owners was first class.

Thank you, the little extras with the wine, chocolates and flowers were a lovely welcome.

Remember lots of steps in Brixham which kept us fit.

The car parking facility was about 4 min away which is fine as you drop off all your stuff and get rid of the driving.

Try The Queens Arms for a real pub, if you like real ale. (£2.60 a pint).

Fantastic walks, great NationalTrust properties to visit and lovely fish suppers.

Will return again!

Thanks.

Chris & Rich

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay, really close to Brixham harbour and restaurants and pubs. Extremely clean and well furnished and equipped. Lovely views over the harbour. Would rate it 5*. One slight problem with the parking but Chris, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful in sorting out. We intend to return.

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.
