The Forge

Tughall Steads near Newton by the sea

Call it ‘glamping’, call it ‘glamavanning’ – whatever the term, this is no ordinary holiday cottage.

Huge, it is not, but tucked into a quiet corner of this coastal farm steading, this cannily renovated couple’s retreat – the former Blacksmith’s forge – has charm, character and romance in spade-loads. Incorporating carefully thought out space-saving design, this studio style space manages to offer full kitchen facilities, a king-sized bed, bathroom and logburner with cosy seating.

An ideal romantic retreat, but it’s also a perfect cottage for those looking at holidaying solo. We have already welcomed an artist looking for peace and quiet to be able to draw and an author looking to chill and relax whilst researching their book.

Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

The Forge is available for booking on the following durations.

Location

The hamlet of Tughall Steads is a collection of converted stone farm buildings and is mainly holiday homes. The houses are surrounded by open countryside and a 5 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. It is located near to our other cottages Garden Cottage and The Smithy.

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

Recommendations

This cottage makes an ideal couple’s hideaway, simple as that. It could also be useful as an annexe to some of our other Tughall properties where room for an extra couple is needed, for example for those staying at The Smithy or Garden Cottage. Would also make an ideal choice for those holidaying alone.

Pets at The Forge

One small well-behaved dog is welcome at The Forge.

Candid Comments

This an old forge with all the quirkiness of an old building.  Make no mistake, the space is compact (limited/hardly any storage space for personal items so travel light), the space either side of the bed is tight, but it’s well planned and full of cosy character. The laundry facilities are not in the cottage itself but in the adjacent stone outbuilding shared with a neighbouring cottage. If you like space then this cottage isn’t for you!

The Forge

A perfect little space for my holiday solo in Northumberland. It felt like home straight away

We were prepared for a small cottage. We weren't prepared to be blown away by this gorgeous little hideaway. We loved it!

Tiny little unusual place to stay with everything we could possibly need. We loved the little garden and patio space overlooking the fields and the sheep

It looks amazing. Can’t believe the transformation

We stayed at The Forge on a recommendation from friends about the high standards of this little compact cottage, perfect for two!
