Fantastic relaxing holiday in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The location of Bacon's make it one of the best New Forest holiday houses we have stayed in. Coupled with the five bedrooms, two large reception rooms, two bathrooms, and a separate toilet, it makes it ideal for our large family. The beds are all comfy and the lounge with its open fire is the ideal place to relax after a long walk.Parking is right outside the property and you can walk directly from the house into the forest. Pony's roam outside the gate whilst deer often frequent the generous sized garden that surrounds the property. Local pubs and others further afield are also easily accessible by foot along the various walks. This will certainly not be our last visit to Bacons and we look forward to returning in the near future.

Excellent, had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage. Our kids loved the location and were most excited to have deers in the garden and wild ponies across the common. The grandparents loved it and have already asked if we can all go back.

Would definitely recommend this property to stay in

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 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!
