Terrific Devonshire B&B with heart-stopping river views

This grand Edwardian townhouse has been converted into an outstanding family-run B&B, perched on a hill with heart-stopping views across the Dart estuary – one of the prettiest spots in Devon.

From Our Guestbook

"Nonsuch House was lovely and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Even the weather smiled on us, which must be a result…"

Know It All

Hit the Spot
In Kingswear, right on the pretty Dart estuary.

Come here for...
● Trophy-worthy views of one of Devon's prettiest towns. ● Great hospitality from owners Kit and Penny. ● Home cooking treats for breakfast, tea and dinner.

Guests can relax in the lounge and conservatory with books or binoculars, and have tea on the terrace.

Good to know
Views are a knockout, but there's a hill to climb!


Four rooms

Special features

All rooms have kingsize beds, Egyptian cotton bedding, feather pillows and great views of the river and out to sea. They also have TVs, CD players, radios, wi-fi internet and tea/coffee making facilities with home made biscuits. Bathrooms are stocked with fluffy robes, plenty of towels and L'Occitane goodies.

Pillow Talk
We snuggled down happily in Biscay, with its sunny shades and decked balcony – the perfect spot for a glass of bubbly. Lundy sports a fresh floral look while Plymouth has great bay window views.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
All meals at this luxury B&B are made to order – so the dinner menu changes daily according to what’s available locally and guests’ requests. Typical menus might include black bream grilled with garden herbs on creamed spinach, best end of local lamb simply roasted with rosemary and wild garlic and pan-fried diver scallops with pancetta and balsamic vinegar. Start your evening with drinks in the conservatory, soaking up the views.

Full breakfast is served until 9.30am or later on request. Get ready for scrumptious home smoked haddock with poached eggs, and scrambled egg with local smoked salmon. Freshly baked bread and fresh fruit salad round things off nicely.

See & Do
Start by exploring the River Dart along the riverside and coastal paths. Dartmouth and the medieval town of Totnes (you can travel there by boat) are good for shopping, while there are beaches at Slapton Sands. Well worth visiting are the art deco house of Coleton Fishacre, and Agatha Christie’s former home Greenway.

Boat lovers and painters flock here, as does seafood maestro, Rick Stein. Breezy coastal paths start almost from the front door, and you can set off with a tasty picnic lunch at the ready. Nonsuch House's friendly owners have been known to rescue those too tired to walk back, and can also arrange fishing and boating trips.

Guests can use Dart Marina Spa across the river – just the place for some exotic Elemis treatments or a facial.
