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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
