“We bought this house 10 years ago because we loved the position. The views are amazing and the fact that you can be paddling in the sea in a matter of seconds is a real bonus. There are tennis courts at the end of the road for those looking to play a set or two. We love watching the people with their dogs and their children playing on the beach and we can walk along the sea wall into Whitstable town centre in about five minutes. However it often takes longer as we live in a very friendly community and we usually meet up with a number of acquaintances en route. Alternatively, we might stop off at the Old Neptune pub en route – it is one of the few pubs in Britain that is actually on the beach. We still want to live in the locale as we enjoy it so much but we feel it is time to downsize and move into something a little smaller.
Whitstable is a charming town full of individual shops, bars and restaurants as well as the harbour where you can buy the famous Whitstable oysters as well as a wide variety of other delicious fish. At the same time the station can whisk you to St Pancras on the high speed train in an hour and a quarter while the Thanet Way for London, Canterbury and the Thanet towns is close by.
There is a good primary school in the town and excellent state and private secondary schools are available in Canterbury. There is the Crab and Winkle route between Canterbury and Whitstable for cyclists and plenty of places to enjoy a walk with the dog. For golfing enthusiasts there is the Whitstable and Seasalter golf club that also includes 10 pin bowling, tennis and water sports and if you want more choice there is also the Chestfield Golf club, while sailors can join the Whitstable Yacht Club or the Tankerton sailing club.
