Cath Oates

Cath Oates
My name is Cath Oates and I’m the Local Guardian for the Garden/Kent area. I joined White House Guardians in August 2020, after being a host mum for 2 years to students and children visiting on summer camps or mini stays. I’m married to Karfai with 2 teenage children, Archie and Charlie and we love our animals – right now we have Crumpet, a Golden Retriever dog, Dandelion our cat, 3 gerbils and our newest recruits are 5 fast growing ducks!

Prior to being a host mum, I worked in a local primary school as a Teaching Assistant and the “library lady” and I like to make a difference to children’s lives and education whilst having fun and promoting a love of learning. I enjoy walking our dog in unexplored areas of Kent, making fresh, homecooked meals using our own grown vegetables and spending as much time as I can outdoors with my family.

About the Area

I live in Ashford, Kent, which is known as the Garden of England because of the county’s successful agricultural production, particularly fruit and hops. On a clear day, you can see France across the channel from Dover Castle and there are many other beautiful, historical places to visit including Canterbury Cathedral, Ramsgate Tunnels that sheltered people from air raids, and Dungeness Old Lighthouse. From hills overlooking quiet country villages and fields, beaches with seaside towns, forests and woodland to bustling towns and a cathedral city, Kent has it all. There are amazing areas to visit and explore with cycle routes, regular buses, a local and national railway network, ferry ports and the Channel Tunnel making travel easy.
