POOH, PIGLET & OWL'S HOUSES

Around the woods near Poohsticks Bridge, you can discover three little houses each belonging to Pooh, Piglet and Owl…

Pooh's House

“Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh, 1926

You must knock on Pooh’s door when you visit the 100 Akre Wood. Sometimes you’ll find letters and honey pots left for this busy little bear. His house is somewhat hidden so keep your eye’s peeled

WHO IS MR SANDERS?

Mr Sanders lived in Pooh’s House before Pooh, but the silly old bear never bothered to take the sign down! We will never know who Mr Sanders was, it will remain a mystery…

Piglet's House

A little bit deeper into the woods, you will find Piglet’s house. If you are lucky you might even see a teeny tiny Piglet waving at you from above!

Owl's House

Owl lives up high in a tree, make sure you’re not too busy looking at the ground or you’ll miss it!

In Winnie-the-Pooh, 1926, Owl is out in the forest and he stumbles across what he thinks is a marvellous rope door bell – “I just came across it in the Forest. It was hanging over a bush, and I thought at first somebody lived there, so I rang it, and nothing happened, and then I rang it again very loudly, and it came off in my hand, and as nobody seemed to want it, I took it home, and——” Owl then installs his new door bell but when Pooh comes along to visit he recognises the rope door bell as Eeyore’s lost tail. That’s why you will see Eeyore’s tail hanging outside Owl’s House!

VISITING

All of the houses are located around Poohsticks Bridge. The closest carpark is Pooh’s Carpark, and from here it is approximately a 20 minute walk (one way) to the bridge. 

The walk is suitable for children and prams, but it is quite steep in parts. There is a relatively smooth path down to the bridge. Piglet’s House is off the path across a small ditch, be careful leaving the path if you choose to go closer to see Piglet’s
