Direct sea views from beautiful, calm house perched on the Tankerton Slopes home swap

A large, detached seaside home that is around 100 years old. Our 5 bedroom home overlooks the wide Thames Estuary / North Sea; you can watch the tide go out and reveal the mysterious 'Street' - a strip of land extending half a mile into the sea in front of you.

The house is very child friendly (we have a 3 year old and a 1 year old) and has all the toys, cots, books etc. that you'll need to keep little ones entertained. There are two very large double bedrooms inside, one toddler room (single child's bed) and a cot in a baby's room, which can become a toddler bed. There is a further large double bedroom in the garden annexe room.

The garden is large, with plenty of room for running around, sitting on the decking or enjoying the outdoor pizza oven.

About the location

The house is almost right next to Whitstable Castle and only half a mile from Whitstable town centre. It is a two-minute roll down the hill in front to our beach hut. Whitstable is a stunning small town, which has been voted Britain's Best High Street many times for its plentiful independent shops. We are also only a stone's throw (literally) from the harbour, where you can buy fresh fish and eat excellent food from one of the many top restaurants in the town.

We are only 15 minutes drive from Canterbury with the Cathedral and great shopping, and a one-hour train ride from the centre of London. Margate, Broadstairs, Deal, Chilham (for Jane Austen fans), Faversham (for antique and cider/beer fans) are all really close by!
