Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

The Smithy 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 next to our other cottages – Garden Cottage and The Forge plus our other Tughall properties.

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

Arrival and Departure

Recommendations

Great for a family but the flexible bed arrangement means it is equally suited to 2 couples. Would work well booked with the neighbouring retreat The Forge- for example a family in The Smithy with grandparents having their own space in The Forge!

Children at The Smithy 5-Star Child Rating

An ideal family holiday cottage with a pleasant garden with swing ball and sit on tractor. A travel cot (please bring your own cot linen) and highchair are available on request. The small 3rd single bedroom is off the hallway away from the other bedrooms so would be more suitable for a teenager rather than a toddler.

Heating

Full oil central heating and logburner in the living room

Please note: 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.

 

Candid Comments

The washing machine and dryer is in the outhouse and not in the main house

The Smithy

lovely views from the lounge, main bedroom and garden. A perfect place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening

Really liked Tughall Steads, central for everything but nicely tucked away

Lovely cosy cottage
