Sandy Balls Holiday Village


Luxury Accommodation and Caravan Site

Five-star, award-winning facilities and the breathtaking forest on your doorstep - the ideal combination for a long weekend, midweek break or longer holiday.

Set in the beautiful New Forest, you will experience a new adventure every day. In addition to our variety of on-site facilities and activities, our location adds a little bit extra, with its winding paths leading to one stunning beauty spot after another.

Wander hand-in-hand, as you stroll through the forest, while the children run free and explore this safe and secluded natural haven. And when you leave behind the rustling leaves and Ollie the otter's footprints, the memories created there will stay with you forever.

Sandy Balls has welcomed tens of thousands of guests to the village since opening its doors more than 95 years ago. Experience speaks for itself and our service is second-to-none. With a superb range of quality accommodation, from Woodland Lodges, caravans and themed luxury accommodation – some equipped with their own hot tub! All based in the beautiful setting of the New Forest National Park.

It is the ideal backdrop for outdoor activities, including walking, cycling, horse riding, kayaking, fishing and much more. Our holiday village offers a fully-equipped gym, swimming pools, a jacuzzi and sauna, plus hair and beauty suite. There is a programme of activities for children and families of all ages and a calendar of special events. And a choice of restaurants, the cosy Woodside Inn and Aubrey’s Forest Kitchen, plus a well-stocked Village Store make dining and catering easy for a relaxing holiday.

NEW FOR 2018
£400,000 has been spent refurbishing Aubrey's Forest Kitchen, giving it a fresh new woodland look. A great place to relax, unwind and dive into some delicious dishes.
