The Apple Store

Tughall Steads



A recent makeover of this fruitful barn conversion has transformed it into a characterful getaway where fun, family and friendship can be enjoyed. The orchard of apples, pears and berries is abundant at autumn time in this cottage’s colourful English country-style garden - the inspiration for this Retreat's name and parts of its interior. Sample its delights fresh from the tree or head indoors and whisk up some culinary fayre in the apple crate inspired timber kitchen.

We invite you to sample the delights of The Apple Store fresh from the tree or head indoors and whisk up some culinary fayre in the apple crate inspired timber kitchen. Here, you can watch the children play in the garden, or socialise with the rest of the guests in the open plan living and dining space with feature log burner. Green and red hues feature throughout The Apple Store’s interior, in homage to its name, while contemporary flourishes ensure this Retreat has the luxury you expect from your holiday.

All the living accommodation is on the ground floor but it should be noted that there are a couple of quite high steps leading from the front door to the living area.


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
In the quiet farm hamlet of Tughall Steads, just a couple of miles from Newton by the sea, The Apple Store is set amongst a number of other Coastal Retreats cottages down a country lane and surrounded by open farmland. Its garden is immediately adjacent to that of High Mill so would work well for a larger party when booked together. It is also directly opposite The Studio, another Coastal Retreat.

The popular cove and village of Beadnell are five minutes away by car, as it Newton with its pub on the beach, while Bamburgh village and its famous castle and shoreline is a 10 minute drive away.

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.

Where to find The Apple Store 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 a private garden with Wendy House, plus numerous toys and games.

We had a really lovely weekend. The Apple Store was perfect. We'd stayed here a few years ago and really appreciate the refurb. Totally gorgeous. The children loved the garden too. The swings, Wendy House, apple trees...all super. We've booked again!
