To be honest, we might have skipped this place ordinarily. But when we heard that Cotchford Farm in Hartfield, East Sussex was the last home of Brian Jones, as well as the home of AA Milne, we suddenly got interested.
The house actually dates from the mid-16th century. AA Milne bought the house back in 1925 as a country retreat and this is the place where the author would write the stories of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. Galleons Lap, Poohsticks bridge and Pooh Corner are all based on locations in the nearby 500-acre wood, if you happen to be a fan.
