Sandy Balls Holiday Village

About

Sandy Balls has been running for more than 95 years and in that time tens of thousands of guests have enjoyed its superb customer service, luxury facilities, quality accommodation and an abundance of activities in a breath-taking setting. Five-star Sandy Balls has something for everyone, so whether it's a long weekend, mid-week break or longer, it offers the perfect holiday destination.

ACCOMMODATION
For those looking to savour the great outdoors, but wrapped in a little luxury, our five-star accommodation includes one, two and three bedroom luxury woodland lodges sleeping two, four or six guests and four-berth static holiday homes. All are fully equipped, centrally heated and have a DVD and TV. The lodges have their very own decking and barbecue area and some even come with a private hot tub too.

Our Premium and Premium Plus lodges offer all the delights of our Laidback and Laidback Plus lodges with extra opulence and convenience. A dishwasher to take the hassle out of your holiday, an iPod docking station to keep you entertained. Complimentary towels and bathrobes, an early check in and use of the gym is also included with our Premium lodge range.
Our most luxurious accommodation, Premium Vista lodges, are a real home from home. With all the benefits of Premium and Premium Plus lodges, you also enjoy the best views on the estate across the Avon Valley. Enjoy it from your roof top terrace or infinity balcony, some of which come with a jacuzzi. Premium bathrooms and decor throughout complete our top lodges.

For 2015 we've introduced brand new four and six berth Superior and Superior Plus caravans and refurbished our Cosy caravans.

For those who prefer to bring their own equipment there are the fully-serviced touring pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents. All our award-winning serviced pitches come with gravel hard standing, drainage and electricity, water and satellite TV hook-up. Pitch fees include the use of the well-appointed shower, toilet and laundry blocks with their unlimited supply of hot water and heating. Of course, Sandy Balls also has all the essential facilities you would expect from a five-star holiday village - including a launderette and three spotless and well maintained shower blocks for tourers.

Our Camping Pods offer the excitement of camping but with a little more luxury. A seating area converts into a double bed and two single pull out chair beds offer accommodation for four guests. A fridge, kettle, TV and heated towel rail complete your pod.

PET FRIENDLY OR PET FREE
In addition to pet friendly and pet free lodges, caravans, camping pods and touring pitches, our dog exercise field and a wide choice of woodland walks makes Sandy Balls the perfect holiday destination with pets.

Take your pick from a whole host of services conveniently located in the pedestrianised heart. For great food using locally-sourced products why not visit the cosy Woodside Inn, our onsite pub or our Italian Restaurant? Visit the Gift Shop or the fully-stocked Country Store that sells a range of fresh ingredients. Indulge in a massage, manicure or facial at the beauty therapy suite or a post-workout swim at the onsite Leisure Club. For the more adventurous - take a two-wheeled adventure through the forest with the help of the Cycle Centre. For everything else just call in at Guest Services - they are happy to help with anything they can.
