Just got back from another lovely relaxing stay at Nonsuch House. Great location for exploring this lovely area. Kit and Penny make you so welcome and we just love the room at the top. Views superb, room charming and Kit's cooking beats many of the local restaurants by far. We will be back again soon.

Nonsuch House has the perfect location, with all the bedrooms overlooking Dartmouth Harbour entrance (see photo). But that is only the beginning.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Penny and Kit go out of their way to be welcoming and helpful, from tea and cake on arrival to advice about what to see and where to eat. They are genuinely hospitable. All rooms are light and airy, have very comfortable beds, well equipped bathrooms and amazing views. The lounge, conservatory and...

It was based on the rave reviews that I tried to book in a weekend away trip with Nonsuch House. Sadly they were full but I have to commend them for their incredible dedication to making sure I found alternative accommodation. This is service beyond what we've come to expect in this day and age. In my opinion, they clearly...

We stayed here on recommendation in August for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The owners Kit and Penny were lovely (and very understanding when our son was ill one night), the breakfasts were superb (highly recommed the French toast) and we had 2 sublime evening meals, overlooking the wonderful sea/estuary view. The bedrooms were gorgeous and fully equipped,...

We stayed at the Nonsuch House with a group of nine golfers and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hospitality of Penny and Kit is remarkable; we felt at home from the very first minute. Kit prepares a great breakfast in the morning (which is served in a beatiful room with a magnificent view across the estuary) and showed us his...

Less is more - so few words are needed...... We have come every year for 14 years for a bit of winter rest & recovery, & sometimes in the summer, and it has never failed us for comfort, quality, informality, assistance when needed, flexibility, etc. Kit & Penny, and the support staff, have always gone the extra few miles.

The magical location of this b&b gives superb views from all the rooms, across the Dart estuary to Dartmouth and out to sea. The room was clean & fresh with a very comfortable bed.

Thank you for the lovely comments on Nonsuch - do hope your foot is recovering and let's hope that by the time you return we have persuaded Devon County Council to have opened the South West Coast footpath again which is a much gentler meander up the hill to the house!

All the previous highly rated reviews are correct.Penny and Kit are superb hosts.The food is top notch and the accomodation is 5 star.Although we live nearby in Torquay we were able to rediscover the beauty of the River Dart and Dartmouth itself.The holiday was a birthday gift from our children, and turned out to be a great treat.
