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!

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.

Perfect cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at Bacons for a week with all my family and can just say good things. Cottage very comfortable and well equipped, lovely safe garden for the children. Lovely friendly pub within walking distance and just set in a beautiful, peaceful location. The ponies, donkeys & cattle were a bonus & the children were delighted to see them visit us daily!

I would definitely recommend this cottage for families with or without children & would certainly visit again in the future.

A real home from home, couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent a glorious week at Bacons with our family and two dogs, a wonderful time was had by all. Bacons is a house that exceeded all of our expectations and is by far the best holiday cottage any of us have ever stayed in... and between us we've stayed in many! The house itself is welcoming, homely, comfortable and very well equipped. The garden is superb and the location excellent. Communications with the owner have been excellent and we really couldn't have chosen better... A glowing report from all everyone in our party and we hope to return at some point. Thank you.

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.
