Just returned home from 6 nights with Kit and Penny at Nonsuch House. This was our 3rd visit. 3 nights the first time, 4 nights the second and now we have made it to 6 nights!!! It is the most wonderful place we have ever stayed. The hospitality is first class, all the way from the moment you arrive to departure. The food is amazing if you manage to stay on an evening when Kit prepares dinner and breakfast covers just about everything you could want. All the food is very fresh and expertly prepared by Kit in the kitchen adjacent to the dining area. Kit is more than happy to take into consideration any likes/dislikes when planning the evening meal.
The view from the dining area is amazing, it overlooks the mouth of the estuary, Dartmouth Castle and out to sea. It is one long procession of boats of all sizes a constantly changing vista.
The property is extremely clean and comfortable and if by any chance you do have a total wash out of a day you are more than welcome to stay in the lounge or conservatory and just watch the world go by.
Going over to Dartmouth on the ferry is a novel experience and there are many things to do in and around around the area. Try lunch at the winery just up the river.
There are many restaurants in Dartmouth that come in handy on the evenings that Kit does not prepare dinner but we found they are not as good a value for money as the evening meals at Nonsuch.
We had afternoon tea and cake every day at no extra cost, well the extra cost was an expanding waist line!! As the title of this review states Nonsuch House and Kit and Penny are a little bit of heaven. We are hoping for at least another 6 nights next year and maybe more!!!
