Moo House is a recently renovated stone barn conversion at
Tughall Steads, a hamlet situated on an organic coastal farm, only 5 minutes drive from the beaches of Beadnell and Newton-by-the-Sea. It is aptly named, as the building was formerly a cow byre! Often booked with one or two or all of our other 7 cottages at Tughall. Moo House receives lots of bookings and is a popular choice for large family groups and house parties! Moo House sleeps 10/12 plus several cots, with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 shower rooms (two beds and shower rooms on the ground floor offering good accommodation for those not wishing to use the stairs), and plenty of parking spaces. The house is light, bright, airy and furnished and presented to an exceptionally high standard. A 5 star GOLD grade was awarded to Moo House for 2011. With large lounge and spacious kitchen/diner, floor to ceiling windows, log burner, comfy sofas, 32" television, CD player, king size beds, courtyard garden with table and chairs, and walled garden with BBQ equipment, we've got it covered for the perfect break!

Coastal Retreats Candid Comments (Giving you the
only down sides we can think of about a property before you book!)

The Cow shed games room is superb and ideal for summer use. It has wall mounted electric radiators but not full central heating, so in the winter, you need to put the heaters on for about half an hour before use. It's not attached to the house so if its raining, you will get wet running the 10 paces from the back door of the house to the games room. The play garden, with swings etc, is also 10 paces from the back door so you may want to keep your toddlers in the small garden off the kitchen if you want to watch them while preparing dinner!

'Once again we thank you for our "extended family" holiday in Moo House. This is the second time we have hired Moo House and our third rental with you ( we had the Look Out in 2010) Everything was first class as usual -a real home from home. We loved the changes you have made to the kitchen and the bathroom in the main bedroom. Our German grandchildren like to call it their second home! The four grandchildren, English (5 and 2yrs) and German (16 and 13yrs) loved the cow barn which was well used after long walks on the beautiful beaches! Two of the party used the bikes to cycle in to Beadnell each day for the Telegraph. We had coffee/late breakfast around the seating area in front of the kitchen and adults and children enjoyed the swings and trampoline! We were so lucky that we had wonderful weather and could return to such a comfortable and well equipped property after the days activities. Your company really deserves the accolades that you have received from North east tourism. An example of your company's attention to detail- we were short of two towels for the children but we had a quick response to our call and towels arrived pronto! I should mention that we had Fiona Burn to cater for us on the last evening. This was a great success- wonderful food, good portions, friendly helpful service, coffee served in the lounge and the kitchen left clean and tidy. We can thoroughly recommend her' ‘I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our stay at Moo House such a wonderful, memorable one. From the moment we stepped foot into Moo House, we knew the weekend was going to be a very special one! The lights and heating were on which made for lovely warm welcome, but better still, wine and pile of double-chocolate chip muffins were awaiting us in the kitchen! Moo House was everything I had hoped for and more for my Hen Weekend. Every one of my guests thought it was wonderful, relaxing and a beautiful place to stay. Every room felt special in it’s own right, and the kitchen was the perfect venue to host our tapas meal, courtesy of . The fabulously comfy sofas were perfect when we wanted to chill out and chat, and the Cow Shed was fantastic! Never have we had so much fun playing pool whilst listening to a friend tinkling the ivories on the electric organ – such fun. 'We just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful family holiday we enjoyed last week. Moo House was perfect for us all, adults and children alike. Thank you for all your help, we really had a very special time, hopefully to be repeated at the earliest opportunity.'

'Just wanted to say a great big thank you from myself and my family for the lovely week we spent at Moo House. I can't think of a thing we would've changed about it - even with a couple of days of rainy weather the children were more than happy to 'hang' in the cow shed; we all had a great time. Thanks again, and here's wishing you all success with the new property, we're definitely hoping to come back again'

' The Cow Shed made the holiday! What a superb facility. When I saw the full size pool table and the table football, I thought all my Christmases had come at once! The children couldn't believe their eyes! The house is beautiful, we all loved the large bath and spent many evenings round the table in the gorgeous kitchen, drinking wine, admiring the view and planning our next trip to Tughall'

'We have just spent the weekend at Moo House and just wanted to let you know that we have had a fabulous time. Moo House exceeded our expections in every way, the house is fantastic, your attention to detail amazing. It was so warm and welcoming and the bubbly and fruit cake a nice surprise. We have had a great weekend enjoying the house and exploring the area. We will definitely be back. Thanks once again for making Moo House such a fantastic retreat, we were all very sad to have to leave'

'We had the most fantastic time,fabulous house,great caterers;it couldn't have been better....We will definitely be using you again! 'We just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had at moo house, it fitted the bill perfectly. So cost yet enough space for everyone. And having the snow was just the icing on the cake.' 'Thank you for being so helpful and accommodating.'

'We all had a fantastic weekend - you should all be very proud of your accomodation and the facilities you offer. My children did not want to leave at all, at the end of the day the cow shed & the garden were the perfect place to keep them happy and up untill all hours!! '
'This has been a really special weekend in a most special part of the country in the most wonderful comfortable and sytlish house. Surrounded by my close friends, this has been a holiday to remember'

' Moo House is a hit for new parents looking for a glamorous self catering option. Its Northumberland location is a revelation with sweeping beaches, lowkey spas & salty dog pubs just a short drive away’….Jane Anderson, Travel Editor, Junior magazine

Moo House has been featured in Junior, Pregancy & Baby and Prima Baby

From the beautiful decor, to the log-burner, to the fabulous corner bath, the whole package was just 10/10 perfect! I cannot recommend you highly enough and am telling all my friends about you – infact, my friends and I are currently busy thinking up excuses for another party – expect us back soon!’ …. Annabel (Bride to be on her Hen Weekend!)
