Cotchford Farm was the country home of author A. A. Milne from 1925 to his death in 1956. It was here that Milne wrote the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, inspired by the surrounding forest’s Five Hundred Acre Wood.
Recently sold, the home’s gardens feature original statues of Christopher Robin and a sundial with carvings of Pooh, the author’s initials, and the following quote: This warm and sunny spot belongs to Pooh, And here he wonders what it’s time to do.
Unfortunately, the property is not currently open to the public.
