Ashdown Forest and the charming village of Hartfield are central locations in the tales of Winnie-the-Pooh. It was here that the classic adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and all their friends were set. And these timeless stories continue to inspire children and adults throughout the world today.
