About Rachel Dooley

Mark and Rachel are the owners of Bon Bon Confectionery shop on the harbour since 2011.

Rachel runs the shop and Mark works from home.

Rachel Dooley purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Rachel Dooley chose Torbay

Having spent several happy holidays in Brixham we made the choice to move here in 2011. Since moving here we wanted to purchase a property to allow other people to enjoy the charming benefits that Brixham has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Seldom Seen is a very old property built in the early 1800s. It has a hugh fireplace and lots of space. The front door has a porthole window that allows you even more views over the outer harbour. The apartment feels like home from home and is extremely cosy.

A lovely, really well-equipped property which is close to the harbour, cafes, pubs + restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in 'Seldom Seen'. The beds were lovely + comfortable, the bath huge + the property was really well-equipped. As dog owners the nearby park was a godsend + the little Fishcombe cove was a treat to visit. Many places were dog-friendly which makes us keen to visit the area again.

There are many lovely places to visit nearby, from National Trust to towns like Totnes + the beautiful Dartmouth. We enjoyed the steam railway + using the ferries at Dartmouth + only wish we could have stayed longer.

Fantastic flat in great location with everything you'll need provided...

  • 5 of 5

I am not one to write reviews but I make an exception when I come across something particularly deserving. This is a great flat at a great price. The owner Rachel was very helpful in getting us orientated and giving us local tips. I had my two young children with me so it was important to me that the flat was secure and clean. The flat was this and much more, the bedding was fresh and the beds very comfortable. The flat has been recently decorated to a high standard and it is tasteful and everything you need is right there in the apartment waiting for you; From knives and forks to fun games to play with the children (plus a welcome pack of fudge and biscuits, but don't tell my kids this as they will be annoyed they didn't get any!). The lounge is large and the fireplace is great for a cosy night in. The balcony has a lovely eating area, it's a delightful little space from which to watch the busy port with a glass of wine in the evening. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed and very clean with fast, hot running water. I will definitely be recommending to friends and returning if I get another opportunity. Very clearly deserving of the five stars I have given it.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Seldom Seen - and we will be back again next year. The apartment has everything you need to make your holiday as comfortable as possible as it is so well appointed.

Comfort is Rachel & Mark's aim and they don't disappoint with their individual touches as fudge,biscuits and all the makings of a welcome cup of tea on your arrival.

Where the the apartment is situated is central so everywhere is with in walking distance and the steps work off any Devon cream teas!!!

This accommodation is so exceptionally clean and comfortable what else could you wish for?

Seldom Seen is an amazing property in a fantastic location. The perfect Brixham holiday home

  • 5 of 5

From our initial booking to the time we left, our time at Seldom Seen and experience with the owner Rachel has been second to none.

The property itself is in the most amazing location, with just a few steps to beautiful Brixham harbour. With fantastic sea views, we spent so much time watching the boats coming and going!

Everything was so clean and tidy, with a selection of games & books to keep everyone occupied if needed.

We spent so much time exploring the area that we weren't at the property all day, but it was the perfect place to come back to and relax.

We will definitely be returning to Brixham, and definitely be going back to Seldom Seen (if it's available!)

Thank you Rachel for a fantastic holiday!

Brixham is a quaint fishing town and with colourful houses lining the harbour. It has many cafés, bars, shops and restaurants, including the fish restaurants serving the daily fresh local fish. While fishing is Brixham's main industry, it is also able to provide plenty for the tourist , with plenty of food shops such as the Brixham Deli and the West country Deli, cafés such as Millie & Me, and bar's such as the Old Market House on the harbour. The harbour has a great continental feel, especially in the summer, when you can sit outside and enjoy fish which has been caught that very morning.

The Golden Hind replica sits in the inner harbour and combined with the 500 berth marina and Breakwater, make Brixham a boat lovers paradise. You can learn about the town's maritime history in the Heritage Museum or simply watch the numerous boats coming and going. Brixham has one of the largest working fishing ports in the country, adding to the nautical activity.

There is much more to see and do in Brixham, including the seawater swimming pool at Shoal stone, woodland walks at Churston, and the Napoleonic Fort and Country Park at Berry Head. This nature reserve forms part of the South West Coast Path with stunning views along the coastline.

Brixham has an annual Pirate Festival on the first bank holiday in May. Brixfest (Brixham Heritage Festival) is at the end of May with many attractions including fireworks, Brixham Steam Rally in August and finally Fishstock held in early September is a one day festival to celebrate food and music and everything about fish and fishing.

Torbay has a warm climate and award winning beaches and fantastic walks for you to enjoy.

South Devon is the perfect place for any holiday. Offering both activities and relaxation. It is suitable for cosy couples or family fun, the South coast simply has it all.

Surrounded by many pretty villages like Cockington near Torquay, beautiful beaches such as Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth, breath taking cliffs such as Berry head and Sharkham point and rolling moors of Dartmoor to name but a few attractions it's no wonder South Devon has earned the title as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Whatever your age and whatever the weather South Devon is the perfect place for a truly memorable holiday. The towns of Torbay, Dartmouth,Teignbridge and The South Hams provide an excellent base for you to explore and discover South Devon and enjoy the sights and attractions, stunning walks and scenery, amazing local food and drink and blue flag beaches that you'll find on offer.
