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. The perfect getaway for families, couples or groups of friends in this wonderful, unique area of England.

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.



We offer 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 caravans have been brilliantly designed to create the perfect space for holidays, long or short. There is a great choice whether you are budget conscious or wanting to splash out.

Grab the keys to one of our woodland style lodges…and enjoy. Take in the stylish décor and open plan living with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Enjoy the outdoors-indoors feel that the picture windows lend to your living space.


Take your pick from a whole host of services conveniently located within The Village Square. For great food using locally-sourced products why not visit The Woodside Inn, our cosy on-site pub, or our newly refurbished Italian restaurant, Aubrey’s Forest Kitchen. Our Village Store is well stocked with all the essentials and a bit of everything else.

Indulge in a massage, manicure or facial at our on-site spa, The Retreat. Work out in our 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, caravans and camping pods, our dog exercise area and a wide choice of woodland walks makes Sandy Balls the perfect holiday destination with your four-legged friends.
