Nonsuch House

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.

Your Hosts

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!!

Location

Kingswear

Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Devon and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nonsuch House offers breathtaking views over the Dart estuary and its bustling maritime activity. Whilst the delights of Dartmouth are only a short ferry ride away, there are also some outstanding walks to be had straight from Nonsuch House - the South West Coast path is on the doorstep and Dartmoor is close by. With the river Dart and the sea beneath the terrace, sailing, canoeing, sea fishing or a more leisurely picnic trip up the river to Totnes are just a few of the delights to be enjoyed during a stay at Nonsuch House.

  • Kingswear sits on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth, a coastal town with a rich maritime history. With its brightly painted houses, Kingswear has a lively Mediterranean feel, with three great pubs, a village store and a post office
  • Relax on the terrace and watch the comings and goings on the river. With one of the biggest marinas in Devon, there is no shortage of beautiful yachts to admire
  • Renowned for its fine food, Dartmouth offers a huge array of restaurants, cafes and bistros - most using local produce, particularly the local catch of the day
  • Take a leisurely walk to the nearby National Trust houses - Agatha Christie's former home at Greenaway and the original home of D'Oyly Carte opera at Coleton Fishacre
  • Meander around Dartmouth’s narrow streets and explore the numerous intriguing medieval buildings such as The Butterwalk, a timber framed arcade built in the early 1600s
  • Enjoy award winning Blue Flag beaches or take an exhilarating speed boat ride out to sea or the more relaxing water taxi to a riverside pub
  • With breathtaking views, picturesque villages, coastal walks and historic houses, it is no wonder that some people consider Dartmouth to be one of the best towns to visit in England
