nr Newton by the sea
This holiday hideaway of renowned artist Alan Smith Page and his family is once more available to Coastal Retreats guests, who can enjoy a display of his beautiful artwork in the quirky surroundings of a converted barn. Originally part of the Retreats portfolio some years ago, The Studio was one of our most popular couple’s escapes, but the family then decided they wanted unlimited use themselves all year round. We are delighted that they have chosen to share it with us again, and now have opened up a second bedroom for another two guests.
Just a mile inland, at Tughall Steads, this holiday home is set in the corner of a quadrangle of converted farm buildings.
Exposed roof trusses, lots of coastal artwork, a cosy logburner, and vintage leather sofas are bound to ensure that guests are both chilled out, and maybe even a little artistically inspired, by the end of their stay!
An additional mezzanine twin room is available (can be booked as an extra) so the cottage could sleep up to six guests. Please request this at the time of booking or this room will not be made available.

Prices and Availability
In the quiet farm hamlet of Tughall Steads just a couple of miles from Newton by the Sea, The Studio is set among a number of other Coastal Retreats cottages down a country lane and surrounded by open farmland. The popular cove and village of Beadnell are five 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!

The house was warm, cosy, comfortable and stylish. I liked the artwork. The ambience and peacefulness (I live under the Heathrow flight path) was wonderful and as a Londoner, the otherworldliness of Northumberland is something I love
We stayed here a few years ago when The Studio was one of the first in your collection. We weren't disappointed on our return visit. Liked the feel and cosiness of the cottage and fell in love with all of the artwork by the owner Alan Page
Our family were holidaying in the large Moo House and we came along for a few days to stay in the Studio. It was lovely having our own quiet space away from the bustle of the family and we loved coming back to the Studio to sit in the garden with a bottle of wine
Fabulous week at The Studio! We've walked from Craster to Newton by the sea (via The Ship), from Seahouses to Bamburgh...and back. Walked Hadrian's Wall, flown broomsticks at Alnwick, lazed on beaches and gazed at incredible views in the national park.....we will definitely be back
Thankyou for your email and for the wonderful service and accommodation.
Our 3 night break at The Studio at Tughall Steads was excellent. We love Northumberland and this was our 5th short break in the area. We treated ourself to luxury accommodation this time after a windfall as previously we have been limited in our choice by cost. The high quality of your product was appreciated! We loved the unique situation of being surrounded by original art, the welcome pack and the comfortable furniture particularly. I have never slept so well in unfamiliar surroundings but immediately felt relaxed in the peaceful development. We are already hoping to return to stay in one of your properties in Beadnell with a larger group, right next to the beach- idyllic! We would also consider booking The Studio again.
Well done Coastal Retreats- I’ve recommended you to a friend already!
