Garden Cottage

Tughall Steads, near Newton by the sea

Garden Cottage is a single storey restored farm workers cottage, with a professionally designed interior décor featuring rich tartans, oak flooring, local artwork and barn doors.
As the name implies, the cottage boasts two gardens. One has a patio with table and chairs and open views of the surrounding countryside looking towards the coast and the other has timber play equipment, a Wendy house and parking for two cars.

It 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.

Two gardens and lots of toys and facilities for children of all ages. Definitely deserving of its 5 starfish rating. Travel cot (please bring your own cot linen) and highchair are available on request. The new ensuite bathroom works very well for families with children, leaving the second bathroom for guests in the second double bedroom.

Candid Comments

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.

Guest Reviews

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! Thanks for everything

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.

Love the new sofas and new decor since we last stayed here.

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.
