Kit Noble

Kit Noble a talented chef and hotelier now runs Nonsuch House in Kingswear, a luxury B&B, with his wife Penny.

On leaving New Zealand in his mid twenties, he originally taught in central London but left to help his parents set up and run Langshott Manor a 12 bedroomed hotel close to Gatwick – a complete building wreck on purchase, the Nobles turned the building around and built up an award winning hotel from scratch.    

His parents wanting to retire made Kit focus on what to do next and he was persuaded on a visit to Devon to purchase an Edwardian Villa at the top of a hill in Kingswear and turn it into the well-known award winning small hotel it now is.       

Kit loves the local sustainable food found in this area of Devon and produces breakfasts and dinners sourced almost wholly with food found within 10 miles of Kingswear and also produces his own bread, conserves, cereals and as much else as he can so that guests have a complete culinary experience!
