A Winnie the Pooh inspired house in the Hundred Acre Wood is available to book on Airbnb as part of Disney's 95th Anniversary celebrations of the loveable children's character.
The Bearbnb is situated in Ashdown Forest, England and is inspired by A.A. Milne's original tales in the Hundred Acre Wood. With two separate stays available, the Bearbnb sleeps up to four guests at a time, giving Winnie the Pooh fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic world of Pooh and Friends. 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."
The house is built with exposed tree branches wrapped around the doorway with 'Mr. Sanders' inscribed above, bespoke wallpaper designed by host Kim Raymond. If guests take a peek inside kitchen cupboards, they'll find shelves stocked full of 'hunny' pots. 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. 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 'Bearbnb' will also be stocked with a host of wellness products to encourage guests to embrace their natural surroundings and live more like Pooh, who is famous for going at his own pace. The products include yoga mats, journals and throws. And for those not quick enough to book one of the stays, they can recreate their own tranquil retreat at home with help from the new Winnie the Pooh range available on shopDisney.co.uk.
