About our home

"""Looking to leave the Uk in December 2017 and be away until Mid January 2018 and are looking for more than one SWOP so will consider all durations and destinations within that time frame!""

We live in a spacious 4 bedroom detached family house. We are in a small village called Upchurch which has a couple of village pubs (within walking distance) a couple of shops and many walks plus safe areas to horse ride. We also have a huge golf course nearby and a local farm with gorgeous walks, a restaurant and animals. We back on to fields which is home to thousands of pheasants, robins, and even have a resident peacock who comes by every now and then.
The high speed train goes from the station a couple of minutes away from our house and you can be in London Kings Cross in 40 minutes, we are easy distance to historic Rochester and Canterbury, many shopping centres and the coast is within a 20 minute drive.
Westfields and Bluewater shopping centres are close by to for those who want to have a proper day of retail therapy.
This is our "forever" home, we bought it two years ago and are slowly decorating each room to our own taste, the house has all the mod cons you would expect, we love the quiet area and the views of fields we have, yet the convenience of having busy towns a couple of minutes away.

We have an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom, a family bathroom and a downstairs toilet. We have a large kitchen with utility area, lounge, study, formal dining room and a play room. Our house isn't a show home- impossible with a toddler around! but it is clean and family friendly with lots of space in a really lovely safe area.
