Revisiting the Hundred Acre Wood on Winnie the Pooh Day
On the birthday of the late author and playwright, A.A. Milne, whose characters continue to delight children (and adults) as they have done for almost a century, Knight Frank is offering a three bedroom cottage for sale near the location of the 'Hundred Acre Wood’.
Milne's stories, modelled on his son, Christopher Robin, and his collection of toys, have become one of the most successful children’s franchises ever, and of course, have produced one of the world's most famous bears.
The well-known setting of the books and home of Pooh and friends is the Hundred Acre Wood, inspired by Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, which is just south of Milne's former country home located in Hartfield, where he and Christopher Robin spent many summers and weekends exploring.
If you want to discover the magic of this area for yourself, then look no further than Elm Cottage, a delightful family home in the heart of picturesque Hartfield which offers a lovely sense of community and is within the Weald of Sussex - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The property is a beautiful Grade II listed family home offering open, light accommodation with period features, arranged over two floors.
Elm Cottage is conveniently located off the main High Street, within easy walking distance of all local amenities and the famous 'Pooh Corner' tea rooms/shop. Ashdown Forest, with its many scenic walks and Winnie the Pooh's 'Poohsticks Bridge' is just over a mile away.
