This time we rent Kjerringøy Prestegård as residency. 1.st floor with 3 big bedrooms, as possibly study, and hall and the bathroom.
Ground floor; entrance, hall, eating kitchen and living room, and toilet with washing machine, 2 high lofted studios to share downstairs (we have a ceramic killn and a graphic press).
Prestegården is close to the food-store, church, school and kindergarten, Kjerringøy Tradingcenter, hotel, harbor and museums. Nature is never far, and marked hiking trails are close.
