Visit to PoohSticks Bridge
Jul 2021
Too a stroll around Forest with a visit to Pooh Bridge. Nice little walk. Don’t forget to grab a stick to drop at the bridge. Also, look out for the tree house of Pooh Bear and his friends.

So we went to Ashdown Forest on our way home from kent. Please note this review is based ONLY on the Winnie the pooh walk. So firslty we went to pooh's bridge which was easy to find, and along the way we did see owl's house. & watched people play pooh sticks. For pooh bridge Park at Pooh's car park if you dont wana walk loads.
Then we went and parked and Gills Lap where you can do the proper winnie the pooh walk. We found mr Saunders house, & maybe eeyore's house which was NOT in eeyore' area or pooh corner. That is all we saw. Couldnt even find the memorial & i know it exsist's as when we got home i looked on insta. The map at the start of the route is what we followed (we took a picture) it was awful, We didnt find half of it. But if you like to just walk and get steps in, its quite fun. But its VERY hilly and uneven, so if you get out of puff alot, take an inhaler or take your time. The rest of the forest might be lovely, but this area was not that great, and that's from someone who grew up with winnie the pooh. Again we would like to go back and do another area of this forest, but i wont go back to this section. ALSO, No toilets, I dont know if the ashdown centre of the cafe has them, as obv April 2021 inside eating wasnt allowed. But there is a sainsburys with toilets aobut 20mins away.

Pooh sticks
Apr 2020
When visiting Pooh Bridge bring your own sticks; there are none there! A good place to gather sticks is Gills Lap in the woods. It can be muddy on the path to the bridge; a wet time is the best to go as the stream has a flow. I’m trying to make the minimum characters up here so I’ll tell you about May Day morning, first of May: the Ashdown Forest Morris Men dance at the Enchanted Place at sunrise, 5.30.

King Standing Car Park Entrance totally ruined by selfish dog owners!!!!!!
Feb 2021
Not a good experience at all. After just five minutes of trying to walk and having to dodge massive amounts of "dog muck" left by ignorant selfish dog owners, we gave up and went home. There may be better walks and better car parking elsewhere near the Ashdown Forest but I think we will certainly give it a "miss". We were trying to see if it would be a good walk for grandchildren but I wouldn't let them go near this place with all this "dog muck" about!!! And its not so much a forest as heathland.

Winnie the Pooh country
Jul 2020
For any Winnie the Pooh fans, this is the place to go, you can throw sticks from Pooh's bridge. Lovely walks around the area as well.

Pooh's house
Oct 2020
Beautiful walk straight out of the pages of A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh, we spotted Eeyore, Owls and Piglets house! If you keep your eyes out close to Pooh's bridge you can also find Winnie's house, magical afternoon for the kids (and for me)

Stunning
Aug 2020 • Couples
We have been exploring this stunning forest, it so to enter into the forest, you just pull up in designated parking places, and off you go, take a satnav location on your phone, and try to get lost you will see all kinds of animals and natural beauty everywhere you look. It has a good phone signal, so you can follow your directions back to starting point.
And of you go again to different starting point. The small hamlets that you will see, will make you very jealous of the lucky people who live there, I'm not so sure it's as good in the hardiest of winters?. Have a look at the winnie the pooh shop, I think you can book a table for lunch, if you book ahead online.
The forest has a feeling of serenity, that gives you a lift that lasts for the rest of your day. This place is a must, you should at least see it once in your lifetime.

Winnie the pooh walk
Aug 2020
Came here with my eldest and youngest a couple of weeks ago to do the Winnie The Pooh Walk. We had obtained maps from Pooh Corner and also printed maps out – which is helpful in learning which car parks to head to for which part of the walk (for the main walk – Gills Lap Car Park - we then drove to the Pooh Car Park for Pooh Sticks Bridge). Finding areas that related to/inspired the books was great – from Enchanted Place to Heffalump trap, passing the memorial plaque to AA Milne and EH Shepard and on to Roo’s Sandy Pit etc. The boys favourite bit, was, of course, playing pooh sticks at Pooh Sticks Bridge (TIP – take your own sticks as there are none there). The Pooh element aside, just taking in the fresh air and scenery was ideal, as the day we went was fairly warm and dry. Enjoyable afternoon!
