Our home

Our house is a 2 bed victorian semi-detached house. On the ground floor there are 2 separate reception rooms. The first is the living area to the front and to the rear is the dining room leading into the kitchen. There is a fair sized garden to the rear where you will find all you need to dine alfresco such as a BBQ, a large table with 6 chairs, a chiminea for the cooler nights and a dartboard. Upstairs you will find 2 double bedrooms. One with a double bed and the other has a single day bed with a trundle that can be made up into a larger than double or 2 singles. It is our main home and fairly simple really. I would describe it is a functional, clean house rather than a pretty victorian cottage style or a show home. However, it has everything you could need in a base for exploring the local area and further afield. i will add some photos as soon as possible

The house is located in Tonbridge which is a historic town in West Kent. The town has many restaurants, bars and craft beer pubs as well as several supermarkets, large parks and lakes all within walking distance of the house. The train station is 15 minute walk away with direct services into central London (45 minutes) and the south coast (66 minutes). The lovely spa town of Tunbridge Wells is situated a few miles away and can be accessed by train in 10 minutes.

If you like to walk, we are surrounded by miles of beautiful Kent countryside. Local footpaths across fields and woodland will lead you to neighboring towns and villages such as Penshurst where you will find traditional country pubs to eat and drink at. We also have two bicycles available for you to use.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 6. Mum (Teresa), dad (Lee) and 4 'children' though they range from 22 to 13 and have grown enormously since that profile picture. We also have a miniature schnauzer called Roxy.

  2. Lee is a police officer looking forward to retirement and I am a nurse with some way to go yet. All but the youngest child has left home so we always holiday together once a year to spend some quality time with each other.

  3. We love beach holidays and lazing around the pool with a book. However, we also like to be active and have previously enjoyed diving, surfing and hiking on our holidays. We enjoy cooking and good quality food and wine.
    We would like to see more of the UK, especially during the half terms when it would just be myself, Lee and the youngest child and possibly Roxy. In the summer holidays we would like to visit more beach style locations but we are open to anywhere
