About this Pub Accommodation

The Plantation Pub and Restaurant with Rooms is a stunning, newly refurbished colonial style pub near the pretty village of Canford Cliffs in Poole's conservation area.  Bournemouth's beaches, conference centre and attractions are within an easy drive, as are the Blue Flag beaches of Sandbanks and Branksome Chine.  The Plantation is also conveniently placed for the spectacular gardens of Compton Acres.  Pets are welcome and WiFi is inclusive, with free parking adjacent.  Poole's natural harbour, the largest in Europe, is just a short stroll from the inn.
