Stayed here with a kids rugby tour and had a 2 bedroom Premium Plus Laid back lodge... it was very clean, well laid out, if a little cramped. We had 2 people in here, probably wouldn't want to do 4 people as there's not much storage for clothes etc The beds were far too soft but overall it was a... More

Decided this year to see a little bit of the UK, and bought a tent, this was our first outing with the tent, and it was ok. I was surprised at the cost per night, especially in April, we paid just over £60 for a pitch with hookup for power and water. Sounded like a bargain for the first time... More

We visited Sandyballs for a midweek break this month. We had a 6 berth Premium Plus Lodge. The lodge was reasonably clean and had the furniture, curtains and carpets & bathrooms all renewed. We could check in at 2.30, the lodge had been cleaned but not properly, we found things the previous guests had left in drawers in the main... More

Very expensive, but then we did stay in a vista lodge with a hot tub, must admit the lodge is the same layout as the other lodges but with windowed doors that slide open and the hot tub made the stay worthwhile. We come here every year, but feel the pricing is very expensive, especially as you have to pre... More

I stayed here for a long weekend at the end of March with my wife and 2 boys aged 5 and 3. We all had a fantastic time. We paid £280 (15% discount) and stayed in a premium lodge. We paid £20 more for the right to pick which lodge we wanted and this was money well spent as we... More

Booked a dog friendly lodge. Absolutely perfect and much better than staying in a hotel as the dog felt at home. Decked outside area securely shut off which meant he could wonder outside on his own too. All the amenities required and set in the middle of the New Forest with lots of fantastic places to go walking.

We have just spent the long easter weekend in our touring caravan. We are a family of five. Children age 5,8&9. We were in the pet friendly four acres area. We had no dogs. Most pitches are nice size, whilst some are very large. The site is clean and tidy. It's within the new forest so it's perfect for exploring... More

Have been here loads of times but it never gets dull! The cabins are amazing and the campsite is so clean. Entertainment for the children is spot on. Didn't really enjoy the pizzeria, food was bland. The wood side in, however do great food so can't really complain! Can't wait for our next visit!
