High Mill

Tughall Steads, near Newton by the sea

A large and welcoming get together barn conversion created from stone farm buildings. Inside and out, it has ample space and a relaxed atmosphere to welcome groups of friends or family for memorable holidays together.

An extremely spacious central open plan living/dining area is ideal for entertaining and leads to the very well equipped kitchen area. The indoor games room provides a haven for younger guests whilst the ground floor living space leads out onto a large rear garden for outdoor play or al fresco eating, giving views over open countryside. Indoor and outdoor space galore, ample bathroom facilities, and with the beach just a few minutes drive away, this house has all you could wish for.

Additional ensuite shower room added for 2018, making a total of 4 bathrooms

The kitchen has been completely refurbished since the making of this video tour -photos show 2020 makeover

The hamlet of Tughall Steads is a collection of converted stone farm buildings and is mainly made up of holiday homes. The houses are surrounded by open countryside and a five-minute drive will take you to the beach at either Beadnell or Newton by the Sea. It is ideally situated for access to Bamburgh to the north and Craster to the south.

Guest Reviews

Loved the spaciousness of High Mill. It meant we never felt on top of each other as we all had our favourite nooks and seating areas

We have had such an amazing holiday, due in part to the lovely weather, the superb scenery, the fun we had on the beach most days but mainly due to the comfort of this gorgeous house. We felt at home from the moment we arrived and really didn't want the holiday to end

So much space. The photos don't do the house justice

We all had an absolutely wonderful week celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Splendid accommodation and facilities, particularly for our grandchildren who had a ball with all the toys and games

Fab accommodation, excellent sized living space, safe garden with good garden games in a great area. Friends booked The Wood Store and joined us for most meals which was perfect.

We've just come back from a 3 night stay at High Mill for a hen party and what a fantastic place. An incredibly spacious high spec property that accommodated 8 of us comfortably. Blessed with beautiful weather we were able to enjoy the local golf courses before returning to our cottage for the evening. 3 bathrooms were perfect for us, comfy beds and peaceful surroundings - we had a ball.

Beautifully presented. Quiet and comfortable. We felt everything was done to keep us safe at this difficult time
