Fans of Winnie the Pooh can finally see the Hundred Acre Wood in real life thanks to AirBnb and Kim Richards, who illustrated Winnie the Pooh for 30 years.

Raymond designed the house based on the descriptions in the books by EH Shephard, built in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, the inspiration for the book’s woodland setting.

The house is made up of a single room that looks as if it was built into a tree, complete with a “Mr Sanders” sign above the door, and “hunny pots” inside.

According to the AirBnb listing, the house allows for four guests spread across a double bed and two smaller loft beds above it.

Richards even covered the interior with bespoke wallpaper designed by him.

House rules include no “heffalumps”, mandatory “Poohsticks”, and that multiple naps are permitted.

The bear-y comfortable home was available to rent by UK residents for just two stays at $144 a night, in celebration of the 95th anniversary of Pooh’s creation by AA Milne.

Proceeds from the stays went to the charity Together for Short Lives.
