May 2016
Northumberland is a beautiful county and has a great deal to offer. Quince Cottage was ideally located for the coast, The Cheviot Hills and Hadrian's Wall in the South. The cottage was very well presented and the owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.
Mr Beasley

We wanted a relaxing getaway and the cottage was ideal for us. There is plenty to do on the doorstep if that's what you want. Very clean and deceptively spacious. Would definitely recommend Quince Cottage.

Mr Porter

The cottage was very warm and cosy with everything we needed. The location was ideal for all of the places we wanted to visit with a village shop which was very well stocked, and two pubs serving very nice food within easy reach. We will certainly go back for a return visit.

Quince Cottage is a lovely, cosy cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend the cottage. On arrival at the cottage we were met by the owner who gave us a tour of the cottage, advice and information which was very useful and relevant to our stay.

We loved our break in Quince Cottage. A fantastic base for either exploring Alnwick and the beautiful long Northumbrian beaches or for travelling inland to the tranquil and picturesque National Park. Warm and cosy - a real retreat (as well as a fantastic supply of books and DVDs!)
Ms Hider

A very comfortable, well appointed cottage in which we felt at home and welcome. We would make a return visit. We particularly liked the log fire and the library of books.

Mr Gardner

The Cottage was tasteful in decor and furnishings. Location was very good for visiting the coast and the moors. Hexham with Hadrian's Wall close by and Barter Books at the railway station in Alnwick was fantastic on a very wet day, books and more books, coal fires and food readily available, wonderful. Would recommend Quince Cottage.

This was our third holiday in Quince Cottage and, once again, we had a delightful time. The cottage is warm, comfortable and well-equipped and very well situated for visiting Northumberland's unique coast and inland sites. The well-stocked village shop, butcher's and pubs all help to make the holiday go smoothly.
Ms Clarke
July 2012
Lovely location, several great pubs nearby for food and a helpful owner. Flowers in the window and welcome basket were lovely touches. Well furnished, the owners have good taste in decor. Lots of maps and books and suggestions of where to go - which were accurate. Loved all the castles to visit, especially Lindisfarne where everyone is so friendly and Alnwick book shop is a real gem.
Mr Curtis

Mr Mothersele

The cottage was excellent in every way. The village was so friendly, you could not wish for a better local shop. The coastal areas and inland hilly areas are delightful. There is so much to do and see in the area that a week is not enough.

Northumberland is a great place for a holiday and the cottage was in a convenient location for many of the attractions. The locals are very friendly and the countryside is vast and natural.

Dr Hartley

We were fortunate to have excellent weather! The standard of the property and friendliness of our welcome served only to improve the experience. To anybody used to holidaying in the more remote parts of Scotland where basic shopping can be a problem I would like to stress the accuracy of your description of the local store and add that it stocks the products of an excellent local bakery.
Mrs Kearns
September 2009
The cottage was absolutely fantastic. The owner met us and showed us round and explained anything we needed to know. The cottage had been beautifully decorated and was extremely comfortable. The owners had supplied lots of tourist information and a library of books and DVDs. The owner also suggested places we might like to visit and where the local supermarkets were. The village is excellent with a really good local shop, a coffee shop and a couple of pubs. A really welcoming cottage.
Mrs Wilhelm
November 2010
The cottage is situated ideally for exploring both the coast and Cheviot hills. Longframlington is a very nice place with a lovely village shop, paper shop and two pubs all in walking distance of the cottage. We loved meeting the owners and very much appreciated them explaining everything to us that was important. And the welcome basket was such a nice touch!

Friendliness of the people. How central we were to the coast,National Park,and other places of interest.The weather was good,no rain,which made the holiday even more enjoyable. Good pubs, with a wide variety of food. And lastly, the wide open spaces,good roads and hardly any traffic. And also,we mustn't forget Quince Cottage, beautiful. We shall be back.

Mrs Crouch
August 2007
We had invited friends from Denmark to join us and we were so pleased that everything was presented at such a high standard. The welcome basket of milk, teabags, teacakes and honey, plus local newspaper was very kind and thoughtful. The owners of the cottage were also very warm and welcoming on our arrival which all helped to make us relaxed ready for our holiday. In addition we enjoyed lovely weather the whole week - what more could we ask for!? There was honestly nothing more anyone could have done to improve our opinion of Quince cottage or of Sykes' organisation. Many thanks to all!

Quince Cottage is a fabulous holiday cottage. It is tastefully furnished, in an excellent location for visiting the Northumbria coast and other attractions and the owners were very considerate.

Quince cottage is everything it promised to be. From arrival to departure everything we needed was catered for and we would return again tomorrow. The property is comfortable, well maintained and beautifully decorated and furnished. The location is perfect for exploring the Northumberland area and is near to many inland and coastal visitor sights. Longframlington is a lovely village with everything we needed and the local pub (The Village Inn) offered a warm welcome and good food.

Quince Cottage is a beautiful, homely cottage. The facilities were excellent and the owners have thought of everything the holiday maker would require. Excellent quality throughout the house from the bedding to crockery. The welcome couldn't have been lovlier with fresh flowers, wine, walnut cake and a tea tray ready for us. Our weather wasn't brilliant but it was great knowing we had the cottage waiting for us at the end of a blustery day with a roaring fire to keep us warm.
Marilyn Hughes
October 2013
Great welcome from one of the owners with cake, wine etc. Also lots of helpful suggestions about Northumbria (backed up by many maps & books). The cottage was a real home from home with clean, modern facilities but lots of books & Dvds and personal touches. We also loved that two good pubs,a butchers,a paper shop & a wonderful little deli/supermarket were right round the corner. A very friendly village too and a perfect centre for exploring the coast, Cragside, Simonside Hills etc.If the shrubs in the front garden were cut back a bit the living room would be a lot lighter but the rear courtyard garden is a lovely little hideaway.

I would highly recommend this cosy, well kept cottage. This cottage provided a very high standard of accommodation. The owner provided us with a warm welcome including a freshly baked cake, milk and a bottle of wine. Advice about the cottage and the area was very useful. Highly recommended.

The booking arrangements were effortless and efficient. Quince cottage was well positioned making it easy to access all places of interest within the area and was clean, cosy and comfortable with much attention to detail evident.The local shop was amazing with so much choice and the meat from the village butcher was truly delicious.Local people were friendly, helpful and appeared genuinely happy and contented with life.

The cottage was immaculate yet had a lovely, homely feel. The welcome basket was a delight as were the owners. We had a problem with a leak which was fixed immediately. Personalised tour guide leaflets really make you feel special with ideas for days out to suit all tastes - can't wait to return!!

Our first time in Northumberland and this was a great place to base ourselves for Hadrian's Wall to Lindisfarne and the coast. It was cosy and very well appointed, with lots of extras to make it feel like home, such as the tea and cake on arrival, the rows of books and DVDs and of course the fire. We needed it even in August. The other thing to recommend this cottage is the village itself. You have everything you need from the paper shops, very well stocked grocer, the butcher, the pub and the pub restaurant. We loved doing the shopping in the morning and having a chat with the very friendly staff. Definitely recommended. Be aware there's no wifi and iffy phone reception, but you can get reception at the pub across the road if you need it.
