Located in Hartfield, East Sussex, Pooh Corner is the gateway to all things Winnie the Pooh. In the heart of the Ashdown Forest, Pooh Corner is the gateway to the infamous setting of A.A. Milne's children's books, an area steeped in fantasy and imagination, and a nostalgic easy visit for family weekends in Brighton.
Mike Ridley created Pooh Corner in 1978. He met Christopher Robin Milne on a number of occasions and has spent the last 30 years promoting Pooh Country for all Pooh Fans throughout the world so that they can enjoy a visit to this beautiful area – for free.
The area is open throughout the year and can be described as nothing short of enchanted. Children and adults alike will love the famous Poohsticks Bridge, where you can follow in the footsteps of Christopher Robin, first checking out the 'Official Rules for Playing Poohsticks'. It's a beautiful place to visit, allowing you to discover the real places mentioned in the Winnie the Pooh books – from Roo's sandy pit, to the memorial stone to the author.
Piglet's Tearoom and Garden provides tea, coffee, and amusing child-friendly treats in the summer months, but there are also plenty of beautiful woodland spots on the trail for a picnic.
Hartfield is approximately 30 miles from the hotels in Brighton, although Pooh Corner can be reached with no stress whether you travel by car, coach, or train. Booked in advance, family weekends in Brighton can easily be customised so you can visit this unforgettable fantasy world by coach or train.
