Elegant, sophisticated and recently refurbished, Morocco House is a luxurious, four storey town house perched above the River Dart in the pretty south Devon village of Kingswear, just a ferry ride away from the colourful, nautical capital of Dartmouth. Sleeping six in the greatest comfort, Morocco House is quite simply perfect for a holiday on this beautiful stretch of Devon coast. Morocco House is reached via a flight of 20 steps that lead from the house down to the famous passenger ferry that transports visitors across the river to the quaint cobbled streets of Dartmouth.
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. Morocco House is their latest venture, a luxurious holiday cottage on the edge of the Dart Estuary.
