“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said. – A.A. Milne
Touching the hearts of generations with his adventures and amusing quotes is the friendly, thoughtful and loveable teddy bear Winnie the Pooh, and as 2016 marks the 90th anniversary of the first publication of A.A. Milne’s much-loved book, Ashdown Forest (aka The Hundred Acre Wood to Pooh and friends!), located at the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasting spectacular views over the surrounding Sussex Countryside, is well worth a visit.
Located just 40 miles from London, enjoy the tranquillity of 6,500 acres of enchanted forest and heathland, steeped in history dating back almost to the Norman Conquest, or even follow the footsteps of A.A. Milne to Gills Lap at the heart of the forest and see, as Christopher Robin did, ‘’the whole world spread out until it reached the sky’’.
A stay in one of our nearby B&Bs would make an ideal base to enjoy this lovely area, where you are sure to enjoy a warm welcome and a hearty breakfast:-
