About Ken and Jane Clifford

Our holiday home is in the grounds of a former Freehouse of which we were the licensee from 1987 until we ceased trading in 1999. Since then we have undertaken many renovations, part of which is our home.

We would like to introduce you to our new venture in our beautiful Marlborough Award winning village and share our love and knowledge of the surrounding towns, villages and countryside.

Yours hosts Jane and Ken Clifford

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained property with everything you might need. Had a lovely meal at the Fox Inn in the village. And Ken advised on the best way to get to Oxford - the train was an excellent suggestion.

Great Cottage

Jane and Ken have built a really nice cottage with all of the modern conveniences of home. If you are driving in and around the Cotswolds and need a place to stay, this cottage is the place.

Excellent Holiday Hide away

  • 5 of 5

Excellent holiday, We don't want to write a review because somebody else may book it when we want to go back.

Yogi's cottage is a beautifully well equipped (more provided for you than other self catering accommodation), has got the feel of a home away from home and Ken and Jane did those little touches that make you feel very welcome.

The cottage is finished to a high standard, and spotlessly clean.

Beautiful surroundings. Easy access from A roads or motorway, BUT the sound of bird song is what will greet you when you wake up.

Definitely recommend it, and intend to revisit next year. Looking forward to more home baked bread and fresh eggs from your chickens!!! :-)

Thank you so much.

A wonderful Home from Home cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We have found a little Gem and will certainly be returning and recommending to friends and family! Immaculately clean with everything you need to enjoy your stay - they really have thought of everything! An ideal setting to visit the infamous Bicester Village and beautiful surrounding villages. Thank you Jane and Ken for advice when needed, fantastic service. A+++

We spent a lovely 5 days at Yogi's and enjoyed every second. The cottage was clean, well presented and well maintained. The welcome pack was a lovely touch as were the daffodils. Ken and Jane were informative and great hosts, readily available if needed but not intrusive. Will be recommending this property to friends and family who wish to visit the area.

New Year break

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to be able to stay here at the last minute whilst visiting Family over the New Year. Yogis Cottage is ideal, beautifully presented, immaculately clean with everything you could possibly need. Jane and Ken have really put thought and care into this cottage, they were so kind in providing us with breakfast things too which was much appreciated. The cottage is warm and cosy and we would certainly love to go back for longer. Easy to get to, parking right outside. Excellent , loved it!
