Add This Winnie the Pooh-Themed Tree House to Your Travel Bucket List
The Hundred Acre Wood is a top fictional travel destination for many people who grew up reading or watching Winnie the Pooh. You can't visit the storybook forest in real life, but Airbnb offers the next best thing. As Thrillist reports, a tree house modeled after Winnie the Pooh's home is now available through the vacation rental site.
The "bearbnb" is located in Ashdown Forest in England, which inspired the setting of A.A. Milne's classic children's tales. The tree house's exterior features many details from the original illustrations, including a gold bell and the name "Mr. Sanders" written above the door.
Inside, guests will find cozy furniture and a kitchen fully stocked with "hunny" pots (but digging into them is off-limits, according to the house rules). The woodland-themed wallpaper and decor is designed by long-time Winnie the Pooh illustrator Kim Raymond, who is also the Airbnb host appointed by Disney.
Disney set up the Ashdown Forest Airbnb as part of its 95th-anniversary celebration of Winnie the Pooh. It sleeps up to four guests (including three children) at a time, and is available for two separate stays on September 24 and September 25. Anyone can try to book the house for £95 ($131) per night, but Disney expects high interest when the dates go live at 9 a.m. EST on Monday, September 20. If you can't make it into the Airbnb, there are still plenty of things for Pooh fans to enjoy in Ashdown Forest, like tossing twigs off Poohsticks Bridge and visiting sites that inspired settings in the books.
