Moo House

Tughall Steads



Formerly a cow byre, now a cool and quirky get together pad, Moo House delights all generations with its fabulous entertaining spaces, fantastic bedrooms and its separate chill out zone, the Cow Shed games room. Only five minutes drive from the beaches of Beadnell and Newton, there’s a choice of lounging or dining in one of two gardens, hanging out in the dining kitchen with its ‘fit for a feast’ table which seats 10 to 12 guests comfortably or kicking back by the log burner in the living room.

A renovated stone barn conversion at Tughall Steads, a hamlet on an organic coastal farm, Moo House is light and bright with a cosy lounge and spacious kitchen/diner, several garden areas to suit junior playtime or adult relaxation and spacious sleeping accommodation - most with an ensuite - making it ideal for group getaways.

Moo House also benefits from The Cow Shed, which adjoins the garden of Moo House, and is exclusively available to guests. Here, you have a perfect games room/chill out zone complete with pool table and table football, sofas, music and books. Detached from the main house, guests can use the Cow Shed as a games room, garden room or somewhere to escape to for a bit of quiet TV watching or book reading.

The Cow Shed Games Room is superb and ideal for summer use. It has wall mounted electric radiators but not full central heating, so in the winter you need to put the heaters on for about half an hour before use. It's not attached to the house so if its raining, you will get wet running the 10 paces from the back door of the house to the games room.
The play garden, with swings etc is also 10 paces from the back door so you may want to keep your toddlers in the small garden off the kitchen if you want to watch them while preparing dinner.
The living room is a good size but may seem 'cosy' when full of 12 adults.


This house is a family owned holiday home and as such is unsuitable for holding large parties. Small gatherings are, of course, welcome but no ‘open house’ please! Tents, hot tubs and mobile homes on the property are not permitted. Please refer to our large group advice list for further information.

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
A quiet farm hamlet location, rural in nature but just minutes from the beaches of Newton and Beadnell. There are several holiday cottages situated at Tughall Steads, giving it a real community feel which is popular with families.
If you happen to look at Tughall Steads on Google Earth, please note that the apparent 'airstrip' shown nearby was last used in 1948!
For further information on the area, see our Tughall Steads section.

Can I take this opportunity to thank everyone at Coastal Retreats for making my special birthday (70) weekend a fantastic weekend, both the Moo House & Cow Shed are a credit to your company. The three young grandchildren thought the Cow Shed was out of this world, and as such the adults enjoyed themselves even more. I could go on forever but will keep it short, just to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone concerned at Coastal Retreats for a job VERY VERY WELL DONE.

Once again we thank you for our "extended family" holiday in Moo House. Everything was first class as usual - a real home from home. We loved the changes you have made to the kitchen and the bathroom in the main bedroom. Our German grandchildren like to call it their second home!

The four grandchildren, English (5 and 2yrs) and German (16 and 13yrs) loved the Cow Shed which was well used after long walks on the beautiful beaches! Two of the party used the bikes to cycle in to Beadnell each day for the Telegraph. We had coffee/late breakfast around the seating area in front of the kitchen and adults and children enjoyed the swings and trampoline! We were so lucky that we had wonderful weather and could return to such a comfortable and well equipped property after the days activities. As an example of your company's attention to detail; we were short of two towels for the children but we had a quick response to our call and towels arrived pronto!

Moo House was everything I had hoped for and more for my hen weekend. Every one of my guests thought it was wonderful, relaxing and a beautiful place to stay. Every room felt special in it’s own right, and the kitchen was the perfect venue to host our tapas meal. The fabulously comfy sofas were perfect when we wanted to chill out and chat, and the Cow Shed was fantastic! Never have we had so much fun playing pool whilst listening to a friend tinkling the ivories on the electric organ – such fun!

Mootastic time had by our entire party! What a superb house, perfectly equipped for a large party. Coastal Retreats were very helpful in arranging a slightly early arrival time to help with our daughter and her medical needs. Couldn't recommend this beautiful cottage or the professional agents enough.
