We were a little worried after seeing the reviews.. Turned up Caravan was ready and very close to all amenities which was good (caravan 187) en suite toilet which was also a plus. When you go in to the caravan look under sofa you may find a fold away bed 1/2 way through the holiday if we had known this... More

Where to start. The good stuff, location in the New Forest as stunning as ever, camping pitches excellent, what I call V1.0 staff as good as ever, clubhouse/ pub has been revamped, if you camp it's good value. The bad stuff. New this year draconian enforcement of regulations, such as no gazebos even if they are small, you are not... More

What a shame....we've been here a few times before and even recommended it ( apologies to any of my friends who used it !) Sadly the owners have become very greedy and expanded the site without expanding the facilities. Lovely setting, dog friendly lodges a great idea and this accommodation was ok. Found some loom bands and a toy gun... More

We have just returned from a three night visit to Sandy Balls. I had read some of the reviews before we left so I was slightly concerned! However we loved our time with you. We stayed in lodge 45. It was a lovely spot. The view over the valley and the river was fab. Our lodge was nice and cosy.... More

Great location in terms of peaceful and nature environment. We had a great time but only because we enjoyed spending time together as a family away from busy life in London not because of there place itself. Rooms okay but not much considering price. Very basic to say the least. Service in wood side in not great. Definitely not service... More

I was a little bit worried after booking sandy balls then reading the reviews, but I can safely say we had a blast! Clean showers and toilets. The wardens we constantly cleaning! The staff were very helpful. Food on site reasonably priced. Swimming pool system is annoying but at least there is a system! Parks were clean and safe. Generally... More

I stayed in a three bedroom pine lodge with my wife and three children for a week. Lodge was clean and comfortable (even the beds - I didn't want to get out it was so nice) and the towels were brand new and delightful. Great pressure on the shower (better than my own one at home). Location was great as... More

Visited Sandyballs in the Summer Holidays 2014. Everything just seems small for the amount of people Touring/Camping and the amount of Lodges and Camping Pods etc. We went to "BOOK" the swimming pool as its so busy. Was told there was a slot the day we was coming home and people book 2 weeks before they go on holiday. That... More
