The Studio

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 from 2017 and now have opened up a 2nd bedroom for another 2 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!

A video tour will be on the website soon.

Candid Comments

The bathroom is on the ground floor and the bedroom on the first floor.



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 cosyness 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
