Join the Staycation Nation with Away Resorts and Sandy Balls Holiday Village!
Beat the demand and get the dates you want, the park you want and the accommodation you want
We’ve always known that Britain is pretty special (especially our park locations!) and despite the pandemic, so many have still managed to safely explore our sunny coastlines or the leafy countryside. Many will know just how amazing a mini staycation with us really is, all just a short drive away.
We’ve been working hard, adapting to the pandemic that has changed so much for many of us including live streaming of our entertainment, COVID safe measures throughout the park and PPE for our teams, and of course extra cleaning measures in our holiday homes. We are proud to say that 89% of guests that stayed with us in 2020, said they would recommend us to friends and family!
Think more lovely giggles. More of the best kept local secrets. Even BIGGER experiences. Support for local businesses. That early evening bottle of bubbly. Bike rides. BBQing. Oh, and remember those rosy cheeks, after a day out in the sunshine
Don’t miss out – book your next break today!
We really would love to see you!
Book with confidence! At Away Resorts, we recognise that we are all living in uncertain times and that there is no clarity about when the Coronavirus pandemic will be over. We are also aware that at times like this, it is important to have something special to look forward to as a family. So, to provide you with complete reassurance, we have introduced the free of charge Coronavirus Booking Guarantee. This means if your 2020 or 2021 holiday is cancelled due to COVID-19, we will offer you:
The choice of a full no quibble refund OR the opportunity to move your break to another date in the future free of any administration charge

Step away from the ordinary and into the extraordinary at Sandy Balls, where the natural beauty of the New Forest is an amazing backdrop to the famous Away Resorts Great British staycation.
Whether you want to kick back and relax or rediscover your sense of adventure, Sandy Balls is for you. Chill out in the serene spa or take a dip in the pool. Make friends with our resident alpacas or hop aboard a Segway and zip through the forest. And what a forest! Here you can escape to ancient woodlands, open moors and wild heathland to feel the pull of nature that lies within us all.
Whatever your budget, we’ve got you covered; from the classic caravan to our exclusive Heartwood accommodation. Sink into a hot tub holiday, enjoy a log cabin with woodland views or soothe your spirit in the sanctuary of a Zen holiday home. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, bring the dog – we love dogs and dogs love the New Forest.
Too chilled to cook? We’ll do it. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, let the team rustle you up something delicious in one of our restaurants to keep you out of the kitchen. With the New Forest on your doorstep, a host of activities to keep the whole family happy, amazing accommodation and a warm welcome from our Holiday Heroes, you’ll be returning to Sandy Balls time and time again, like so many of our guests.
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.
Our exclusive 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.
