Sandy Balls Holiday Village



Surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park, Sandy Balls combines an enviable location with an excellent choice of facilities. Following huge investment over the past 2 years, including the Indulgent Zen and Knightwood Lodges, it's the perfect getaway for families, couples or groups of friends in this wonderful, unique area of England. You can even own your very own Holiday Home. 

You’ll find something for everyone on the park, with indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, and a whole host of activities to suit all ages.

The New Forest begs exploration - watching wild ponies roaming across the heathland offers an unmissable treat for any visitor - and bursts with wildlife, fantastic walks and cycle tracks. A host of picturesque towns and villages await on the doorstep, whilst Bournemouth, Southampton and Poole are nearby.



Offering a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets including; luxury themed accommodation with Hot Tubs, Caravans and Woodland Lodges – all in the beautiful setting of the New Forest National Park. 

2019 brings two beautiful new accommodation types 'The Heartwood' and 'The Knightwood.' The Knightwood accommodation, named after the largest oak tree in the forest, is like nothing Sandy Balls has seen before with hot tubs, BBQ's, cosy outdoor seating, bike rack and dog shower! The Heartwood has a woodland tartan theme, cosy and totally unique. 



Take your pick from a whole host of services conveniently located within The Village Square. For great pub grub why not visit The Woodside Inn, a cosy on-site pub, or the newly refurbished Italian restaurant, Aubrey’s Forest Kitchen for something a little more special or a good cup of coffee. The Village Store is well stocked with all the essentials and a bit of everything else.

Indulge in a massage, manicure or facial at the on-site spa, The Retreat. Work out in the gym and enjoy a post-workout swim at the onsite Leisure Centre. For the more adventurous, take a two-wheeled adventure through the forest on your bikes or with the help of the Cycle Centre.

There are also a whole load of activities for all the family in our PLAY or My Active activity programmes; including alpaca walks, body zorbing, archery and horse riding.


Pet-Friendly or Pet-Free

In addition to pet-friendly and pet-free lodges and caravans, the dog exercise area and a wide choice of woodland walks makes Sandy Balls the perfect holiday destination with your four-legged friends.
