Set on a leafy, suburban street in Poole's upmarket Canford Cliffs area, The Plantation houses a pub, a restaurant and polished rooms, all tied together by British Colonial-inspired design. The grand red brick property is a 5-minute walk from themed gardens at Compton Acres and a 5-minute drive from Sandbanks with its sandy beach. Poole's quaint town centre is 15 minutes' away by car.
Bold prints, vibrant fabrics and distressed wood furnishings characterise the stylish pub and restaurant, where guests can order real ale and modern updates on classic fare. There's additional space for dining in the plant-lined conservatory, which features vintage lamps and a colourful tiled floor, while The Plantation's garden is dotted with cosy tiki huts.
The colonial vibe runs through the 10 contemporary bedrooms, which are finished with quirky wallpaper and bright drapery. All the rooms include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Breakfast is complimentary.
