Great Village
Tea Cosy cottage was a very comfortable house for 2. Situated in a very pretty area of the village . A pleasant stroll to the excellent pub. Venison with cumberland sauce yum! Stretton on Fosse is centrally located for access to Cheltenham and the Cotswolds. The tea tray and flowers on arrival were most welcoming.

Fabulous cottage and location
Tea Cosy is a lovely traditional cottage in a great location for exploring the Cotswolds. The lounge has a wood burner, always nice to come home to after a cold autumn day and there is a welcome pack provided for you on day of arrival. We have been back to Tea Cosy a number of times, which is testament to how much we have enjoyed our stays.

A cosy Christmas
Tea Cosy cottage was an ideal place to celebrate Christmas. Very accessible to the motorway system and Birmingham to see relatives but also a real Cotswold village, close to similar historic buildings, the chimes of the Church and a short downhill walk to the friendly and welcoming local pub. We started each day with a walk on one of the many walking tracks and finished in front of the log fire protecting us from the nighttime frost. We had a great Christmas at Tea Cosy Cottage.

Small quaint cottage in small very quiet village. Ideal for a restful holiday. Low ceilings meant the taller members had to be careful when moving around. Lovely welcome pack.
