Property code: OC-566718

Set in the hamlet of Tughall Steads on the Northumberland Coast, sits this snug and comfortable bolthole. Boasting fantastic countryside views, it’s a great retreat for a romantic weekend or as a base for the solo traveller. Newton-by-the-Sea is 2.7 miles from the property and is a charming village with a sandy beach which is great for sailing and windsurfing. Here, you can stroll along the shore to Dunstanburgh Castle, practise your swing at the 18-hole golf course, or spend the day bird watching at the freshwater nature reserve. Alternatively, head 4 miles from the property to Beadnell Bay Beach, a sandy cove loved by water sports enthusiasts, and spend the day kayaking, windsurfing, or wakeboarding. Boat trips also run from the harbour here so you can explore the Farne Islands.

Originally a Blacksmith’s forge, this one-bedroom studio property has been converted into an intimate and charming hideaway. Bijou in style, the open-plan living area is light and airy with a vaulted ceiling that gives the impression of space. The elegant sofa invites you to snuggle up with a film on the TV while a log burner keeps things warm on chillier nights. Overlooking the lounge is a compact kitchen equipped with high-quality appliances where you can rustle up a delicious meal and then serve it at the intimate dining table. Off from the lounge, a neat alcove features a king-size bed. Luxurious in design, windows and French doors swathe the room in light and you can watch the sunrise over the fields from the comfort of your bed. There’s also a bathroom on this floor.

Outside, the setting is idyllic. Start the day with a coffee at the garden table and listen to the sound of the trees rustling in the breeze or simply contemplate the rolling countryside views. Come evening, you can dine alfresco by candlelight and watch as the stars light up the sky.

Wonderful little converted forge with ample room for both of us and the dog, fenced off garden area. Beautiful location slightly remote but close to amenities and beautiful beaches.

We have previously stayed at The Forge and were delighted with our stay on the first occasion and that's why we chose to return.

The bed is wonderfully comfy and even though the property is compact, the fact that it still offers a bath is wonderful after a long day of walking. I'm sure we will be back to visit The Forge again.

Property smaller than anticipated and dark inside. Needs another window. Dog friendly but fence to sheep field not dog secure. So unable to leave door into garden open.

The pictures on the website make the cottage look bigger than it is and the garden look bigger than it is. It was still comfortable but a bit of a shock when we first arrived. Perfect location comfortable and well equipped though.

You are known for your high standard of cottages and the way you look after your guests. We loved the Forge. It did exactly what it said on the tin (the website).

Very easy - great place. A floor plan would have helped for the property. Logs were missing and we couldn't get hold of anyone to get any.

Compact and comfy. Good central location. Really like Tughall Steads as a location. Everyone is friendly in the nearby cottages and its nice to have people about, but at night the place is dark and peaceful. The stars are amazing. We spent a few evenings just sitting in the garden with our bottle of wine, star gazing.

We absolutely loved our stay in the Forge and fell in love with it from the start. Although small we weren't short on space and was incredibly cosy. The kitchen was well stocked. The welcome bag was a beautiful and well thought out touch as well! We only have two things that we'd like to point out: the hot water wasnt enough for a full bath despiteRead more not using it for anything else and we had to use kettle of hot water to fill it properly. And the fire is not safe to use as the door does not close properly! and should be checked. We checked for some logs as noted in the handbook but sadly there were none which wasn't a problem but it would have been a nice touch even for the first fire, as even summer nights get cold. Despite these we had a lovely stay and would love to be back again soon. Hide

The setting was absolutely everything we had hoped for, peaceful and private, without feeling isolated. We had deliberately chosen an enclosed garden so that we could let our collie out for a play without disturbing others, especially first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening. The views from the garden were beautiful especially in thRead moree evening as the sun went down. The cottage was very well resourced, extremely comfortable, and very cosy and made us feel very relaxed after a day of sightseeing and walking along the wonderful local beaches. We were surprised and delighted with our welcome bag of goodies; a small unlooked-for touch that made us feel very well looked after. Thank you and we hope to return before too long. Hide
