The cute Airbnb house, inspired by Winnie the Pooh, tucked away in a forest an hour from London
When summer is firmly over and the autumn mood is in abundance here, many families plan walks through the country with their little ones – and a special place will fire their imagination.
In the beautiful Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, just an hour and a half from London, this Airbnb retreat is perfect for fans of Winnie the Pooh.
Modeled on Winnie’s actual home in the books, the resort is also helpfully located in the same woods that are believed to be the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Woods.

Guests can expect cupboards full of “hunny pots”, a strict “No Heffalumps” house rule, poohsticks games and of course lots of hunny-inspired meals, according to MirrorOnline.
Other perks for guests include a guided tour of the scenic woods, including playing Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge and loads of Winnie the Pooh-themed treats.

The ‘Bearbnb’ can accommodate up to four people, although there are some important rules such as: Tiggers, Eeyores and Piglets and Pooh Bears.
The fairytale house is made up of exposed tree limbs and chic interiors, including bespoke wallpaper by Kim Raymond, the Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh draftsman.
In fact, Kim will be the “official” Airbnb host who curated the bearbnb after drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years.
Commenting on the exciting company, he said, “I’ve been drawing Winnie the Pooh for 30 years and continue to be inspired by the classic EH Shepard decorations and the more recent Disney stories to bring Pooh to fans while also honoring the original adventures that were made for many Have been so important to people for 95 years. “
The forest retreat has a double bed and two single beds on the mezzanine. One adult and up to three children can take part in the parties.
The new Airbnb stay is part of Disney’s 95th anniversary celebrations for the lovable kid character and prices are £ 95 a night.
