Ahead of the upcoming release of Disney’s ‘Christopher Robin’, in UK cinemas on 17 August, you can discover the real-life setting that inspired the famous Winnie The Pooh stories with a stay at Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club.

Starring Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings and Hayley Attwell, the film will tell the story of the now adult Christopher Robin reuniting with his childhood best friend, Winnie The Pooh.

Ashdown Forest in East Sussex is the real-life setting that inspired the fictional 100 Acre Wood, where A.A Milne based his world-famous stories about Christopher Robin, Winnie The Pooh and friends.

Luxury country house hotel Ashdown Park is located in the heart of Ashdown Forest and is the perfect place to visit to stir up childhood nostalgia of Britain’s most well-loved bear.

During a stay at Ashdown Park not only can you enjoy the luxurious facilities including 186 acres of grounds and relaxing country club, you can also visit the locations made popular in AA Milne’s stories. Explore Ashdown Forest and discover Galleon’s Lap, The Enchanted Place, the Heffalump Trap, Lone Pine, Eeyore’s Sad and Gloomy Place, and of course the famous wooden Pooh Bridge where Pooh and Piglet invented Poohsticks.
