Garden Cottage

Tughall Steads



A charming cottage with a whimsical interior of floral wallpapers, rich tartan fabrics and cosy nooks, Garden Cottage has a quintessential country cottage feel. Its front and rear gardens, as its name suggests, is where it excels. One garden has a patio table and chairs where you can pitch yourself for the day and look out across the countryside, while the other keeps our junior guests amused with timber play equipment and a Wendy House.

Inside Garden Cottage you’ll find oodles of traditional features throughout this single-storey former farm worker’s cottage, with the stone inglenook fireplace and log burner a particular highlight. Five minutes drive away are the coastal villages of Newton and Beadnell and their excellent beaches, or head inland to the town of Alnwick with its famous 'Harry Potter' castle and Gardens with treehouse, bamboo maze and water features.

Garden Cottage sits next to two of our other Retreats, The Forge and The Smithy and is often booked with either or both for two or three families holidaying together.

The second fridge, freezer, washer and tumble dryer are in the separate outhouse. Not ideal if its raining and you need access to the ice cubes! (there is a freezer box in the underbench kitchen fridge though). There are enough beds for four adults and two children but the living space is compact for that number of people.


All of our Retreats are non-smoking.

Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.


Terms and Conditions
Situated in the farm hamlet of Tughall Steads together with a collection of other converted farm buildings, many of them Coastal Retreats too. In quiet rural surroundings between Newton by the sea and Beadnell, the cottages here are around a five minute drive from the beautiful sandy beaches.
For further information on the area, see our Tughall Steads section.

Where to find Garden Cottage at Tughall Steads

Reviews and Ratings
Our cottages are graded according to how stylish they are and how welcoming they are to children.

To assist you in finding the perfect place to stay, we have awarded our cottages a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum style rating. This is based on our own standards and the award is given according to a mixture of criteria - location, aesthetic appeal, standard of luxury, facilities offered and style factors.
For example, a Platinum award goes to our most stylish and all round exclusive properties and a Bronze award may go to a cottage that may be a little less refined in places but still meets the high standards necessary to fit into the collection.


It is suitable for children of all ages and includes two private gardens with outdoor play equipment and toys and games.
The ensuite bathroom works very well for families with children, leaving the second bathroom for guests in the second double bedroom.

The Garden Cottage was just the retreat we needed as a young family. I would even say that for once we wouldn't have minded if the weather was poor, as relaxing in this gorgeous cottage was just great! This holiday has also introduced us to a wonderful part of Britain and we look forward to exploring this region time and time again!

After a long journey, it was a delight to arrive here and to experience the welcome of Garden Cottage. Everyday, it was a delight to wake up here and then to return here after a day out. The children loved it all. Addressing the needs of children in so many ways (even nappies in the emergency box), was just wonderful.

Our children think this cottage is their second home. It feels like home and we relax the moment we step inside. When we ask the boys where they would like to go for their holidays, we get a resounding GARDEN COTTAGE. Looks like we'll be coming back next year again.

Homely, unpretentious, cosy, warm, tasteful and set in our favourite part of the country.
