The bucolic country house that inspired A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh is for sale.
Located in the small English village of Hartfield in East Sussex, Cotchford Farm was in the 1920s home to real-life Christopher Robin (Milne’s son) and his family. We’re happy to report that Hundred Acre Wood, Galleon's Lap, and Poohsticks Bridge are all within walking distance from the beautiful mansion.
The sprawling six-bedroom estate set on 9.5 rolling acres also belonged to Brian Jones, a founding member of the Rolling Stones, in the 60s. Jones died tragically on the property after less than a year of ownership. The House on Pooh Corner was then purchased by a family who remained there for more than 40 years. Then, in 2012, Cotchford Farm made its way back to the market. And now, just a few years later, it’s back and available for the cool price of just over $2.6 million.
All this turnover has many wondering whether or not the house is haunted. Not that that could stop us—nobody does death better than the South.
Cotchford Farm is listed by Savills. See the official listing here.
