“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!)

“Perfect retreat for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Behind the Blue Door. The house was spotless on arrival and had everything we could wish for and more. The owner has thought of everything that is required for a perfect stay. Tea, coffee, sugar, towels and toiletries were provided which was a great help. We would have no hesitation in staying again at Behind the Blue in the near future.

“Great base for exploring the area”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a lovely, clean and cosy cottage with all the facilities you'd need for a great holiday. The village is well served with shops etc and is a really good starting point for visits to Stratford, Warwick Castle, Kenilworth and a whole range of manor houses, villages etc. wi fi in the cottage was great so we could check times and entrance prices and the little courtyard was the perfect spot to sit privately outdoors on a warm evening. Highly recommended!
