One of our favourite Disney characters has been given his own real-life Airbnb.
If Pooh Bear, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and the rest of their friends are one of your top fantasy creations, then prepare to be wowed by an overnight stay that we've discovered. An Airbnb all decked out with Winnie The Pooh vibes has been created as part of Disney’s 95th Anniversary celebrations of the loveable children's character.
The "Bearbnb" is situated in Ashdown Forest in Southern England and is inspired by A.A. Milne's original tales in the Hundred Acre Wood. There were two separate stays that became available this morning, Monday, September 20, but unfortunately, all of the dates have sold out faster than you can say "Poohsticks".
Although the experience is now completely sold out, it doesn't hurt to take a look at the fantastical atmosphere that was created for some lucky Winnie The Pooh visitors. More pictures can be seen here.
The "House Rules" for the Airbnb inspired by Winnie The Pooh include:
- Strictly no heffalumps inside the house
- Hands are to be kept out of the honey pots
- A snack of "a little something" encouraged at 11 o’clock in the morning
- Poohsticks is mandatory
- Multiple naps are permitted
- No pets (other than Roos, Tiggers, Eeyores and Piglets and Pooh Bears)
- No smoking, you’ll upset the bees
Disney-appointed Winnie the Pooh illustrator, Kim Raymond, who curated the "Bearbnb" and has been drawing the iconic bear for over 30 years said: "I have been illustrating Winnie the Pooh for thirty years 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 Airbnb Winnie The Pooh experience is all part of the 95th Anniversary of the first book based in the Hundred Acre Wood by A. A. Milne in 1926. It also just so happens to be Queen Elizabeth II's 95th birthday this year too.
All of the guest booking fees from the experience will be donated to Together for Short Lives, a UK charity that looks after children and young people who have life-limiting conditions.
