Pooh Corner, the enchanted Place

17 Sep

Time for a little excursion. This time to Pooh Corner in Hartfield, East Sussex.
I went there on my trip to South England last autumn, because it is the “birthplace” of one of my favourite children´s classic novels “Winnie the Pooh”.

After an one hour bus ride from Royal Tunbridge Wells through the beautifull countryside we arrived at the really nice and cute village Hartfield, were Pooh Corner was not to overlook.

We decided to take a walk through fields and forest of Hartfield to the “Poohsticks Bridge”, after getting a map from the lovely shopstaff. It was such a beautifull path, because the landscape of East sussex is amazing! The best is to say it with pictures:

It was so nice to see the whole scenery that inspired the author to his great and cute stories (btw, I love the chapter in which Piglet is completely surrounded by water, and later saved by Pooh and Christopher Robin).

After returning to Pooh Corner it was just the right time for tea at Piglits Tearoom . I had “Piglit´s Cream Tea” and Chocolate Cake, which was both very delicious. They make the snacks and cakes themselves, so everyone who visits Pooh Country should also stop at Piglits Tearoom 😉

(This is the entry to the garden area of the tearoom. Unfortunately it was too cold to eat outside.)

I hope to come back to Hartfield as soon as possible. Maybe I can the landscape next time in the colours of spring and maybe meet some of Rabbits friends and relations again.
