Large Family House on the coast near Canterbury, Kent, UK

I will be taking up a visiting scholarship at a university in Taiwan during the academic year 20/21 and I am therefore looking to rent or possibly exchange my house for that period. Beginning and end dates can be flexible.

The house is a large 4-bed (currently one bedroom is set up as a large study) Victorian semi in a pleasant small town on the north Kent coast. The house is light and airy, with a modern kitchen and two bathrooms plus an additional toilet, and has a nice back garden and is a short walk from the beach. There are supermarkets, a good gym and a small cinema all within easy walking distance. Local schools are excellent if you are travelling with children.

We are 10 mins drive from Whitstable, a popular tourist town, and about 25 mins from Margate and Ramsgate. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the University of Kent, which is a campus site located on our side of Canterbury. To get to Canterbury's other two universities would take another 10-15 mins depending on the traffic.

Many people in the town commute to London, so if you are looking to take up an appointment at a university in London, but want to avoid London prices and congestion then this would be a good option. There is a high-speed train service, which takes about 1 hour 20 mins to St Pancras, and similar services to Victoria and London Bridge.

It might be possible to have the use of my car.

For swaps, would consider anywhere in Spain, esp Madrid, CÓrdoba, Seville, and anywhere in Taiwan. Dates of swaps can be flexible.

More pics coming soon.
