Staring Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie, Goodbye Christopher Robin tells the story of the origins of A A Milne’s most famous characters Winnie the Pooh and friends. A A Milne took inspiration from the adventures his own son, Christopher Robin, had with his toys in the woods by their home in Ashdown Forest. These tales have provided enchanting bedtime stories for children throughout the world for over 90 years.

Ashdown Forest, a.k.a ‘The Hundred Acre Wood’, was the playground for Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore, and is home to Ashdown Park Hotel and & Country Club which offers the height of luxury in the heart of the stunning East Sussex countryside. For fans of the film and Winnie the Pooh this is the perfect place for a break to experience the  beauty of the forest, and immerse themselves in all that is Winnie the Pooh.

Ensure your whole family is included in the exploration of the world of Winnie-the-pooh, with interconnecting family bedrooms and dog friendly bedrooms available to book. During a stay at Ashdown Park not only can you enjoy the hotel’s wonderful facilities including 186 acres of grounds, a Par 3 Golf Course and relaxing country club with full spa facilities, you can also visit the iconic locations from AA Milne’s stories. Discover Galleon’s Lap, The Enchanted Place, the Heffalump Trap, Lone Pine, Eeyore’s Sad and Gloomy Place and of course the infamous Pooh Bridge where Pooh and Piglet invented Poohsticks.

Goodbye Christopher Robin premiered on 20 September at the Odeon Leicester Square, and will be in cinemas from 29 September – including at Cineworld Cinema in Crawley, just a 30-minute drive from Ashdown Park Hotel.

Short breaks at Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club start from £87.50 per person, per night, B&B (based on two sharing).
