You can live like Disney’s Winnie-the-Pooh in the original Hundred Acre Wood to celebrate his 95th anniversary.
United Kingdom (21 September 2021) – Somewhere between Which Cross and Duddleswell in the middle of the Hundred Acre Wood lies a little house, built inside a tree, that belonged to a little bear called Winnie-The-Pooh!
The “Bearbnb’ was brought to life by Disney-appointed Winnie-the-Pooh illustrator Kim Raymond, who has been drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years and took inspiration from the original illustrations of E.H. Shepard.
“I have been working with a team of experts to bring Winnie-the-Pooh’s ‘Tree House’ as depicted in the classic A.A. Milne tales, to life, in Ashdown Forest, the inspiration behind the Hundred Acre Wood, as part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations of the loveable children’s character. I am so excited to welcome families to the original Hundred Acre Wood.”
“I brought Pooh’s house to life, taking inspiration from the original decorations of E.H. Shepard, with exposed tree branches wrapped around the house, ‘Mr Sanders’ inscribed above the doorway, shelves stocked full of ‘hunny’ pots and bespoke wallpaper that I have designed.”
For those all-important naps which Pooh is famed for, there is sleeping space for a family of four. The double bed will be floor level, and the single beds will be on a mezzanine level accessed via timber ladders.
During each stay, guests will be taken on a guided tour through the original Hundred Acre Wood, play Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge and enjoy locally sourced hunny-inspired meals.
The house will be bookable for guests currently residents in the UK who love Winnie-the-Pooh via the Airbnb website.
