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!

Good coms with owners, great location, lovely and clean, brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

Just a wonderful weekend spent with friends in a lovely old house which is excellently located, the garden is wonderful for a couple of dogs, who have probably had a better time than us, just a delight.

Wonderful location and lovely character cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend break to celebrate a friends 50th birthday. This involved 2 great walks in the forest and lunch out. The food in the Forest Arms was particularly good. We would all love to return. Our only negative comment is that the piano needs tuning.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we are delighted enjoyed the weekend, it is a wonderful venue for family 'grt-togethers and birthday celebrations. The piano is a beautiful old instrument, but sadly so old that it no longer maintains its tuning and is now just a 'honkey-tonk' enjoyed by variuos children.

Very good property in great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a family weekend away. Spent a lot of time eating and playing games in the large comfortable dining room with extra sitting area. The property has good-sized and comfortable double/twin bedrooms and we also really enjoyed walking straight out of the house and the local pub.

This very comfortable, charming cottage prived a wonderful retreat for a perfect family break

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly restful family break which was even better in the hectic build up to Christmas to avoid the usual chaos

The cottage has a warm. Welcoming feel which makes you happy to spend time there

I look forward to returning
