Bursting with character, charming Artist’s Cottage sits in a superb location in the centre of the idyllic fishing village of Craster home of the famous Craster kippers and just a few minutes’ walk from the picturesque harbour, a good pub, restaurant and café, and a well equipped children's playground.
The former home of renowned local artist Pete Green, today the cottage is still in the family who have retained her fabulous artworks in the cottage to be enjoyed by many.
