Winnie the Pooh fans can book an adorable themed Airbnb in the real Hundred Acre Wood

By Julie Delahaye

Winnie the Pooh is opening up his home for stays through Airbnb, and it's every bit as adorable as you'd imagine.

Guests can expect cupboards filled with 'hunny pots', a strict "no heffalumps" house rule, games of Poohsticks and of course, plenty of hunny-inspired meals.

Oh, and the cosy home is even located in the real-life Hundred Acre Wood, also known as Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, which inspired A.A Milne when he was writing the beloved books.

Other perks for guests will include a guided tour of the picture-perfect woods, including playing Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge, and plenty of Winnie the Pooh themed goodies to enjoy.

The 'Bearbnb' sleeps up to four people, although there are some important rules such as being encouraged to have a snack of "a little something" at 11 o'clock in the morning, taking multiple naps, and no pets other than Roos, Tiggers, Eeyores and Piglets and Pooh Bears.

The fairytale-worthy home is built with exposed tree branches, and swish interiors including bespoke wallpaper by Kim Raymond, Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator.

In fact, Kim will be the 'official' Airbnb host, having curated the Bearbnb after drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years.

He said of the exciting venture: "I have been illustrating Winnie the Pooh for 30years 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 honouring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years."

The woodland retreat has one double bed and two single beds on a mezzanine level. Parties can include one adult and up to three children.

The new Airbnb stay is part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations of the loveable children’s character, and prices are £95 a night.

Sadly, there are currently only two stays up for grabs - on September 24 and 25 - so you'll need to be quick if you want to be one of Pooh's guests.

Don't be disheartened if you don't manage to snap up a stay.
