“Wonderful cottage in ideal location.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Had a very relaxing week using this cottage as a base to visit the surrounding area. Walks from the door, with lots of National Trust properties and tourist spots, in all directions less than 30 minutes away. Local amenities, pubs, restaurant all are literally paces from the door, but cottage in a quiet spot. Lots of pretty villages nearby to enjoy coffee and cake and watch the world go by.

“Lovely cosy cottage”

We have just returned from a week away at this lovely, cosy cottage. We found it to be clean, tastefully furnished and equipped with all the essentials for an enjoyable stay. The location is very convenient: there are pubs, takeaways and grocery shops within a short walk, and the nearby meadow is ideal for exercising dogs. It made a great base for us to visit friends and family across Warwickshire and Worcestershire as the road links to Bidford are good. We would definitely recommend it and would book again for a future trip.

“Super cottage to visit Stratford and area”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely cottage with all amenities. Fire especially welcome. We were at the theatre for two days and relaxed for the rest. As most national trust and English heritage places shut it was great to relax with books and bake in the kitchen. Would recommend any time of year.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Really enjoyed our stay here in October. The cottage is lovely and comfortable and we enjoyed using the log fire! The village is great and it is lovely to walk along the river. There were plenty of pubs and restaurants in the village too. We would recommend it.

“Cosy, comfortable cottage; a lovely place to call home for a week!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Behind the Blue Door; we found it was ideally situated for local shops, take away's, play park for 4 year old and walks for the dog. Bidford is a great location for travelling to Stratford, Warwick Castle etc, but village itself was quiet and just far enough away from the 'touristy' stuff! The cottage itself was cosy and welcoming and would definitely recommend to friends/family.

Liked best: Bathroom - only room in the house that could have been updated a little
Liked least: No allocated parking - the car was not near the property on a couple of occasions (not ideal for loading up a child and a dog!)
