Things We Saw Today: Rent Winnie the Pooh’s Tree House on BearBnB
Piglet not included.
Generations of children have long wished that they could go to the Hundred Acre Wood and pay a visit to Pooh Corner. And now, Disney and
AirBNB BearBNB are making that dream a reality. A Winnie the Pooh-inspired tree house is now available to book as part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations of the iconic character. The tree house is located in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, England, where Winnie the Pooh author A. A. Milne lived. Milne, who lived on the northern edge of the forest, would take his son, Christopher Robin, walking in the woods which inspired the classic childrens’ books. Artist E. H. Shepard then used Ashdown Forest as inspiration for the illustrations in Milne’s books.

The BearBNB is open for two separate stays, and can accommodate 4 guests. According to a press release from AirBNB, “Hosting the Airbnb stay is Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator, Kim Raymond, who curated the Bearbnb and has been drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years. Kim brought Pooh’s house to life taking inspiration from the original decorations of E.H. Shepard and he notes: ‘I have been illustrating Winnie the Pooh for 30 years and I continue to be inspired by the classic decorations of E.H. Shepard and the more recent Disney stories. The ‘Bearbnb’ is a unique experience that brings the charm of Pooh to life for fans, whilst honoring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years.'”
During their 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 ‘Bearbnb’ will also be stocked with a host of wellness products to encourage guests to embrace their natural surroundings, such as yoga mats, journals and throws.
Raymond will host two separate stays on September 24 and 25 for just £95 per night*. Available booking dates will go live at 2:00PM BST on Monday, September 20, and only current UK residents will be eligible to book. Oh, and no heffalumps allowed inside the house.
