Airbnb rents a Winnie the Pooh house • GEEKSPIN

A Winnie the Pooh-inspired home will be available for booking on Airbnb this month, as part of the Disney character’s 95th birthday celebration.

Called the Bearbnb, the house is located in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, England, and is inspired by AA Milne’s original tales in the Hundred Acre Wood. With two separate stays available, the Bearbnb can accommodate up to four people at a time, giving Winnie the Pooh fans the chance to immerse themselves in the iconic world of Pooh and Friends.

Both Airbnb stays will be hosted by Disney-named Winnie the Pooh illustrator Kim Raymond, who has organized the Bearbnb and has been drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years. Drawing inspiration from EH Shepard’s original decorations, Raymond brought Pooh’s house to life with exposed tree branches wrapped around the house, “Mr. Sanders “inscribed above the door, shelves filled with” hunny “pots and custom wallpaper he designed himself.

The Bearbnb has a double bed on the ground floor and two comfortable single beds on the mezzanine level. Its lounge area has comfortable seating and a dining area, where you can enjoy locally inspired meals made with honey. A temporary bathroom, fully equipped with a toilet, shower and sink as well as toiletries and towels, will be located a short walk from the house for private use.

The house also has electricity points and there will be 24 hour security during each stay. Guests will take a guided tour of the original hundred-acre woodland and then get to play Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge. To encourage guests to embrace their natural surroundings and live more like Pooh, who is famous for going at his own pace, the Bearbnb will also be stocked with a variety of wellness products such as yoga mats, newspapers and throws.

The Bearbnb will be open for two separate stays next weekend on September 24 and 25 for just £ 95 ($ 130) per night, including taxes and fees. Exclusively for UK residents, booking dates for these stays will be posted on Airbnb September 20 at 2 p.m. BST. The guest booking fee will be donated to Together for Short Lives, the UK registered charity for palliative care for children.

For UK fans who aren’t quick enough to book one of the stays, they can recreate their own quiet retreat at home with the help of the new Winnie the Pooh range available at shopDisney.fr.
