What an amazing time we had at such a fantastic place. Being able to sleep in a real bed was such a delight and the bathrooms belong in a hotel! Such a unique treat having our very own fire, which have made a couple of cool July viewings extremely fun and warm. We wish you all the best of luck with this amazing new venture and warn you… we will be back."

Peaceful Woodland Spot with Great Facilities
The woodland setting, the peaceful environment, the fact that all equipment is provided so you have none of the hassle of camping but all the benefits such as cooking over an open fire, enjoying the fresh air, being surrounded by trees and wildlife. There was a good amount of space between us and another family who also visited so we socialised but also maintained our personal space. The bathrooms are private for each tent so you have guaranteed privacy and a clean, hot shower that would rival a hotel bathroom. The honesty fridge/freezer also means you can easily store food which was helpful. Washing up stand was always clean and easy to use. Supplies such as toilet roll, washing up liquid etc all available so again, no hassle for packing. Lighting is gorgeous - fairy lights inside and out and candles to light. Site glows wonderfully at night with all the solar lights which are tasteful and subtle. Bed was comfortable, supplies well thought through. Lee, Kelly and the team responded quickly and efficiently to any queries or help that we needed. Friendly but respectful hosts
Wonderful Experience from Start to Finish
The gorgeous surroundings did not feel 10 minutes drive from Bournemouth and Poole. Helpful welcome pack with efficient and secure use to the site. Felt safe and relaxed with everything we needed to hand to enjoy our 5 night stay. Beautiful and clean bathrooms. Have already enquired about staying again next year!
Booking last minute we weren't sure what to expect however we were blown away with the attention to detail and how everything was already thought of. Local pub was within walking distance for the evening we didn't want to cook however all equpiment was at hand to ensure we could enjoy our stay.
We had an amazing time here. The dogs loved it as well. It’s such a nice place. Me and my dog Bonnie had a nice explore and she had lots of new smells and loved it. Me and my friend Connie and our dogs loved exploring the wood and burning marshmallows and having chocolate strawberry’s. We also saw 4 deer and a herd of horses. Thank you this is a great place and can’t wait to come again. I hope this place is still here when I have kids.

Fantastic site, big family toilet and shower room and very clean too
Very peaceful and the pitches are well spaced out. This gives it some privacy between each tent. The children love the feeling of being in the woods, so do we. Each pitch has its own dedicated fire pit and there are plenty of dead wood lying around that you can use. It’s definitely a nice place to chill out.
Wonderful and Clean Site- Thoroughly recommend!
Me and my girlfriends hired two bell tents for a long weekend away. With a couple of the ladies being novice campers this was the perfect introduction to luxury camping. We enjoyed bubbles around the camp fire and felt totally relaxed throughout. The washroom facilities were extremely clean and completely secure for us to charge our phones too. Will stay again.
Excellent site, very clean bathrooms would definitely go again. Liked everything, Disliked nothing
Quiet Beautiful Camp Site- Facilities Were Excellent
The location in the forest, our lovely bell tent with all the equipment provided, including a proper bed. Having our own bathroom, honesty fridge. Would definitely book again and thanks for a week of sunny dry weather!
Excellent Site, Clean Facilities, Friendly and Idyllic Peaceful Location
The customer service was amazing. Very helpful staff and excellent communication. The surroundings were wonderful. Very peaceful and relaxing. Each bell tent is located a good distance from the next allowing you adequate privacy. Everything is provided for you all you need are your clothes ! Everything from a tin opener to fire lighters. We took far too much and didn't need anything, everything is there.
The toilet block was located about a minute’s walk from our tent. The facilities were perfect, very, very clean. Towels and loo roll provided. An "Honesty" fridge is also available which was great for planning the next meal.
The bell tent itself was presented so nicely. Bunting and fairy lights added to the beauty of the place especially the lights at night. The fold down beds for the kids were ok but my oldest son found them uncomfortable. The double bed was comfortable and Saturday. Outside the tent there is a fire pit which is great for both heat and cooking and fire buckets are in good supply.
We went as a family two kids 8 and 15 taking our bikes. We had hoped to go off for cycle rides but unfortunately the local roads were not safe enough for the youngest as they were country roads and very narrow at times etc. The boys did cycle around a bit of the plantation but really the bikes weren't used. Busy week. lots to do and see as the campsite so near to poole, Bournemouth etc
What was there not to like? Loved it, Wouldn't change a thing, pure joy will stay longer next time.
Good Value For Money, Peaceful surrounding
Private pitches, quiet location, clean shower facilities. Honesty fridge supplied for campers use
The fact everything was included in the tent we didn't need to bring a thing. Having our own private bathroom Being able to have a real fire and toast our marshmallows! Looking up at the stars at night during our peaceful retreat. The little fairy lights gave the tents a magical touch. The honesty fridge - no one wants to go back to college days of putting your name on your butter. The friendly staff.
This place is amazing
Liked the Bathrooms, Bell Tents, Cleanliness and Beds- Everything was Great.
Mixed Tent Pitch
Nice pine forest with plenty of space for walks and kids to mess around, dry and flat pitches, with campfire area. Plenty of firewood around(no need to buy, and kids loved collecting it). Showers and toilets tidy and regularly cleaned (have shared fridge if needed). Pitches were far apart so no noisy/snoring neighbours and plenty of privacy. Plenty of wildlife (dear, rabbits, birds) loads to do and see in short drive away and nearby areas- definitely value for money.
Mixed Tent Pitch
Quiet and non comericial site in a beautiful setting with everything you need
Tent was clean with all equipment provided. A truly Lovely experience
What an amazing bank holiday weekend we had
Our pitch ( The yews ) What an amazing weekend we had. Our tent went up like a dream. I'd recommend this place to everyone. Peace, wildlife, view of the stars at night. Clean shared shower room, solar powered when it can be, so environmentally friendly. Wonderful managers that can be there if needed at the drop of a hat. Lots of space. Fire pit, with safety water buckets, honesty fridge, Child friendly. My daughter made friends with our neighbours. The list goes on. Our non-Electric pitch was only £50 for the weekend. Excellent value. And with the added bonus of the beautiful Dorset coastline not far from camp. So much to do! Loved every minute.
Thank you Stoney down plantation for making our weekend.
The Dayment party
Wonderful location and lovely hosts Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, cannot fault anything The locals don’t know what they are missing
Absolutely loved staying here for the weekend
Liked Everything, we stayed in cherries bell tent for the bank holiday and it was perfect! The location is beautiful, waking up in the woods, with a lovely walk around the forest, and a short drive into Poole and Bournemouth. There is just the right number of people on the site so nice and quiet, with good spaces between the bell tents. The hosts are easy to contact and help with every enquiry. The tent was lovely, and even more so when it is all lit up at night, it looks really beautiful. The bed was super comfy and warm and having our own shower/toilet was great, these felt more like being in a hotel than camping! Had everything we possibly needed to camp, they really have thought of everything with the bell tents and having our own bbq/fire pit area was lovely to spend the evenings by the fire. Highly recommend this place, and will definitely be returning!
Great Camping in the forest with a fire and decent showers
Had a great camping trip at SDP for three nights and will definitely return. The pitch was spacious, with room to park a couple of cars next to us too. The firepit area was great.
The shower block was much nicer than I expected.
The BEST camping I've done in england!
Wildnerness, Remote, Wildlife, Not too close to other pitches, Quiet, Left to yourself, Allowed a fire, Clean showers/bathroom, Provides bottled water, Washing up area is great, Fridge/freezer for guests to use is a great idea…Everything!
The admins of the site were so helpful, answered all of my many questions and so willing to help whenever I needed anything. The site is so close to Poole and Bournemouth but you feel like you're completely away from it all when you're at the pitch.
Lovely site in the woods with good facilities
Quiet , Natural setting, Good toilet and shower block , Helpful staff and Near to the coast
We stayed at Stoney Down Plantation in August this year and we hired one of the Bell Tents. The tent was brilliant and we had everything we required for camping... we only had to bring sleeping bags and pillows for the kids. The tent was clean and very well presented on arrival with washing up facilities near the toilet block a very short walk away from the tent. The private bathroom was very clean and the shower was brilliant. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend to others.
Luxury Glamping Pitch
A wonderful site to stay in, very clean tent and immaculate bathroom- Loved everything
The location only a few miles from Poole. Liked the setting, the facilities being new and clean
Lovely place, it has everything you need for a nice get away!
We loved everything about it! From the room to the facilities you cannot fault anything.
Beautiful place, tent has everything you need, really comfortable bed. We all slept like logs! Love the fact you can have a proper camp fire as lots of camp sites no longer offer this facility. Would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay again.
Mixed Tent pitch
Lovely trees. Loved not being pitched right next to anyone and nice clean, actual site. Clean toilet / shower facilities.
Fantastic get away! Thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness! We cannot fault anything here at all. Our own little or big forest on our doorstep! Would highly recommend to anyone as location is fantastic alongside more. You open for us when you were closing too!
