Charming, atmospheric cottage

A delightful cottage in the heart of Whitstable's conservation area in Kent. The cottage is close to the university city of Canterbury and its universities and an hour from London. This small weatherboard house is located in a quiet street close to the town and sea. Built in the early 19th century for making sails, the cottage is charming and cosy. My cottage is stylish and comfortable. It has been lovingly renovated with fitted shelves, shutters, large shower. There is an open plan lounge and kitchen on the ground floor and two small bedroom (one that is used as a study with a single fold down bed) and bathroom upstairs. The cottage has many comforts but remains characterful and peaceful (it also has a sweet little roof terrace which can be reached from the folding stairs on the first floor).

About Me
Leo Zeilig is a writer and researcher. He has written extensively on African politics and history, including books on working-class struggle and the development of revolutionary movements and biographies on some of Africa’s most important political thinkers and activists. In different ways, each book examines the growth of decolonization, the failures of independence and the development of radical politics on the continent. In all of his writing Leo presents the continent as being at the centre of globalization. Leo is an editor of the Review of African Political Economy—the radical African-studies journal founded by activists and scholars in 1974—and a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies at the University of London where he set-up and coordinates the Ruth First Papers Project. Leo’s critically acclaimed novel Eddie the Kid was published by Zero Books in 2013. Eddie the Kid is about the life of an activist in London during the anti-war movement in the early 2000s. It was praised in The Guardian: ‘This passionate, sad and well-told book offers a compelling portrait of a flawed young radical.’ Eddie the Kid won the 2014 Creative Work prize at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. Leo is writing his second novel, An Ounce of Practice.
