An incomparable view. Perched on a gentle hill overlooking the comings and goings on the river and estuary below, Nonsuch House is a luxurious bed and breakfast with its own unique 'wow' factor. With breathtaking views, deeply comfortable, south facing bedrooms and a conservatory and terrace upon which to contemplate the maritime activity below, Nonsuch House is a very special place to stay.
Kit, a Kiwi, came to the UK in his mid 20s. Having taught for 4 or so years at a well known London prep school, he joined his parents in setting up and running Langshott Manor, a well-known hotel in Sussex. Kit came down to Kingswear in 1997 where they set up Nonsuch House – it quickly became well known. Meeting up with Penny, who had come to live in Kingswear having completed a leg of a round the world yacht race, they got married in 2003. She did not have to change her surname! Penny continued working as a Practice Manager of a firm of solicitors until 2006 when she joined Kit in running Nonsuch House full time. Kit is a great chef and creates the most fantastic meals from local produce, whilst Penny is front of house, administrator and chief bedmaker!!
