Ashdown Forest is the former medieval hunting forest where AA Milne got the inspiration for his Winnie-The-Pooh stories. There are two Winnie-The-Pooh walks of different lengths (which can be downloaded from Ashdown Forest’s website) that take in points of interest from the famous bear stories. Set out on an ‘expotition’ and find the place where Pooh and his friends found the North Pole, the Heffalump Trap and Lone Pine, Roo’s Sandy Pit, and more. The whole family get a nice walk in a beautiful forest and the kids get a literary treasure trail. There’s also a Pooh shop in nearby Hartfield village and the Pooh Sticks bridge where kids can throw their twigs and imagine Eeyore floating on his back towards them.
