We are retired doctors who live in the area and have 3 children and 3 grand children who live in London.
We bought it to have an interest in our retirement and also so that our family and grand children can enjoy visiting Whitstable for weekends and holidays. The house is therefore well set up for under 5 year olds at moment and will change as grand children grow!
House set up with toys etc for little boys! Very close to beach which children enjoy and close to restaurants etc as well.
