Kit and Penny Noble, owners of Nonsuch House Bed & Breakfast in Kingswear, decided enough was enough with their original kitchen and the time was right to make drastic changes. According to Penny “We always wanted a kitchen that would encourage our guests to sit down with a glass of wine and chat away to Kit as he created their meal. Shut behind a swinging door and a partition wall, the old kitchen meant Kit was always isolated from guests, which is simply not how we wanted to run our business.”
So the Nobles set about investigating companies who could deliver a bespoke design that would not only satisfy Kit’s very specific requirements but create that extra special point of difference for their business.
A recommendation from a friend led Kit and Penny to Ashgrove Kitchens. Tasked with creating a kitchen that ticked all the boxes for the Noble’s was senior designer Mike Lawrence.
For Mike the biggest challenge of any job is creating something that intricately matches the customer’s personal preferences. However, hand in hand with this, is the opportunity to advise customers on gadgets and solutions that will make life in the kitchen more enjoyable and effortless.
This was of particular importance when working with Penny and Kit, considering the need to perfectly balance a functional commercial kitchen with Penny’s desire for a relaxed room in which guests gather, share life stories and relax into their holiday.
