Winnie the Pooh enthusiasts can now stay in his house in the original Hundred Acre Wood with Airbnb. The rustic treehouse has been curated specially to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the beloved Disney character.
In recent years, Airbnb has earned a reputation for renting out all sorts of places - from luxury mansions to a Harry Potter themed tree house. Winnie the Pooh’s house - aka the ‘Bearbnb’ - which has been designed by Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator, Kim Raymond, is the latest addition.
The pokey little tree house features kitchen shelves stocked with Pooh’s honey pots, specially designed wallpaper, the iconic “Mr Sanders” sign above the door, and plenty of other quirky commodities modelled on E.H. Shepard’s original illustrations.
“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,” said Raymond.
“The ‘Bearbnb’ is a unique experience that brings the charm of Pooh to life for fans, whilst honouring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years.”
The Bearbnb is located in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, which is the very forest that Hundred Acre Wood was inspired by in A.A. Milne's original children’s classic.
Describing the adorable new rental, Airbnb said:
“Alongside the charming references to the original Pooh tales, the house is fully kitted out for guests to enjoy a relaxing family stay, including a double bed on the ground floor, and a mezzanine area with two comfortable single beds. The lounge space comes fully equipped with a cozy seating and dining area for guests to appreciate a “smackerel” or two.”
Pooh’s house is only available for two bookings and, unfortunately, won’t be a permanent fixture to Airbnb’s rapport. There are two available dates to book your stay, but you’ll need to get in there quick.
Raymond himself is hosting the two stays, which take place on 24th and 25th September. Booking dates go live at 2pm BST on Monday 20th September.
The cost of a one-night stay for upto four guests is £95, which includes a guided tour through the original Hundred Acre Wood, playing Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge and enjoying locally sourced hunny-inspired meals.
Pooh's humble abode will also be stocked with wellness products, including yoga mats, journals and throws for guests to embrace Pooh’s slower pace of life.
