There is very little we can add to the many other reviews here, except that we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay (far too short). Accommodation, food, everything, was wonderful! The views are almost unbelievably beautiful. A big thank you to Kit and Penny for the cooking, cleaning, and other hard work which goes into making this place something very special.
The places we particularly liked visiting (all within a short distance) were Greenway, Agatha Christie's home - reached by boat from the River Dart - the house is absolutely fascinating; Coleton Fishacre, the home of the D'Oyly Carte family - surprisingly modern, with lovely gardens; the coast to the south-west, with beaches such as Slapton and Brantham; and the Dartington Cider Press, which has a great glass gallery and fantastic shops.
Two pubs to recommend: the Ship at Kingswear, and the Sloop at Brantham - but the evening meal we had at Nonsuch House was the best of the trip.
Because "a picture paints a thousand words" we've added some of our photos to this review.

Beautifully situated for the amazing restaurants and shopping in Dartmouth, for long walks straight from the front door or for sitting comfortably in the conservatory or on the terrace watching the world go by on the river, Nonsuch has to be the place to stay. ... more less
