About MR PAUL KINNEAR

I live and work in London We have owned Bacons since 1991 and it has been a wonderful family home for the holidays.The children are now grown-up but we still like to come to Bacons for peace and quiet when we can!

We love walking, and the beauty of Bacon's position in the Forest, is that you can park the car outside and there is no need to drive again until it is time to leave.

MR PAUL KINNEAR purchased this house in 1991

Why MR PAUL KINNEAR chose New Forest

Wonderfully quiet away from roads and on a country track. Open aspect with views over the Forest with Forest animals right up to the gate!

Comfortable house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th year here. Always a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. A wonderful place for the dogs too. We love sitting in the garden eating and drinking watching the donkeys and ponies go by.

An animal lover's heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family which also comprised three grandchildren had a wonderful week in Frogham at 'Bacons'. The lovely big garden with an apple and a pear tree was a delight, not to mention seeing the donkeys over the gate, ponies just opposite, a bull not too far away, and even a deer that came to call fleetingly! The large dining room suited us very well and we found plenty of space for everything. The kitchen had all required utensils and we learned to get better at using the Aga! All in all, a terrific holiday location.

A lovely quiet break for three generations of my family.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet cottage with lots of room and grounds for youngsters to safely play in, plus opens on the common so children can see the local wildlife. Lots of places to cycle or run locally and shops are 5 mins away.
