Bacons is situated in a lovely part of the New Forest and from the front gate you can walk straight onto the open heathland.There are many walks and cycle rides which are accessible from the cottage, without the need to drive. The original property is from the 17th century and was made of cob and the restored and extended in the 19th century. There is an original thatched building, built of cob- 'The Hovel' in the grounds. The village of Frogham has good pub, The Forrester's Arm, and a village shop/garden centre with tea rooms; the shop sells mostly hardware items etc. Bacons looks over Hyde common with its village school and cricket pitch. Full oil fired central heating, open fireplaces with logs provided. WiFi (unlimited BT broadband).

The house is situated on a shingle/ unmade road which may be uneven after heavy rain, and may therefore unsuitable for vehicles (e.g., sports cars) with low suspension.

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 Frogham

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!

Lovely property in a peaceful location. Ideal for accommodating a large family group comfortably.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Bacons a few times now and always thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The property is comfortable and well equipped and, although in a quiet location, it is an ideal base from which to explore the New Forest.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The property felt homely as soon as you walked in the door. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds all very comfortable and it was reasonably well equipped. It is a great place to be to explore the New Forest - it was amazing to just look out of the window and see 8 deer wondering past one day! My son loved having a piano the play on and there were some great games to keep us entertained. The garden was beautiful and the children loved playing with it when the weather dried out a bit. Access to the property is down a very bumpy track which my car did not enjoy too much, but all in all it was a great place for a short break to get away from it all.

Super cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at 'Bacons' with the family. My wife has always fancied living in the New Forest and this was the ideal place. A lovely cosy, warm country cottage opening onto the heath. A proper forest cottage, not a posh place, just what we wanted. A lovely big garden for me to play football with my grandchildren and, as it turned out, to build snowmen with them.
