The Apple Store

nr Newton by the sea

This house has been deep in clutches of the Retreats design team and has had a full makeover. Inspired by Autumn’s rich harvest from the delightful garden, its new owner has named it The Apple Store, and its interior does, in parts, pay homage to this most traditional english fruit.

Walls have been knocked down and spaces opened up. Expect green and russet hues, amidst a backdrop of rustic timbers, handmade furniture and contemporary flourishes

And help yourself from the orchard area, if you’re there at the right time of year – the hardest part will be deciding which apple recipe to use to conjure up culinary delights.

Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

The Apple Store is available for booking on the following durations.


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 booked with that, and is directly opposite The Studio across the courtyard. The popular cove and village of Beadnell are 5 minutes by car and Bamburgh village with its famous castle 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 and our plan of our other cottages in the hamlet below

Gorgeous house and the children loved the garden! Really relaxing stay

Lovely and spacious, but cosy too! Fabulous bathroom!

The apples and pears not only looked gorgeous, but when we picked them, they tasted great too! Perfect family holiday.

... I totally love this home! Beautiful and perfect size. Thank you Fiona for always offering just the most gorgeous homes and your standards bring me back, keep me hooked. Just love everything

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!

We have had a great week in this beautiful house. Thank you for cleaning it so thoroughly - we felt very safe in these strange times

We love this house. Its our second visit. Next time we're going to book it along with the Studio a few steps away. Perfect for a holiday with our parents

Fabulous cottage! Great location! Coastal Retreats staff very friendly and informative. This cottage was perfect for our family and we would like to book another visit
