Our tummies are rumbling, and we’re ready to see what old Eeyore has been up to this summer. So, we need to share the news that a Winnie the Pooh-inspired Airbnb has popped up in the Hundred Acre Wood, and a lucky few will have the opportunity to stay there. It sounds like a dream, but we assure you, this is real life.
The opportunity comes from a collaboration between Disney and Airbnb. Turns out, one of the long-time illustrators at Disney decided to build an authentic, real-world recreation of Pooh’s home, based on the original drawings from E.H. Shepard.
We’re not joking about the setting, either. This Winnie the Pooh Airbnb is located in Ashdown Forest, which served as the original inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood. They’ve even placed it near the Poohsticks Bridge, which is the home of the iconic game. Need a little refresher? Don’t worry- a guided tour is included in the booking.
As for the Airbnb itself, no detail has been spared. Seemingly located in a giant tree, the home features custom wallpaper, rustic furnishings, and of course, ‘hunny’ pots galore. Those aren’t for show, either, as you’ll be treated to a few ethically sourced meals using honey during your stay.
Now, it’s time for the catch. Unfortunately, this unique Airbnb experience is only open to residents of the UK. So, maybe send this link to any friends/family you might have living there, because this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
