Stayed here over the May bank holiday weekend with friends who also had a camping pod next door to us. We have a 4 year old & 19 mth old so we were a little hesitant at first however it was a fabulous weekend with the kids running, cycling, scooting and playing together in the outdoors whilst we BBQ'd, drank,...

This was our second visit to Sandy Balls as part of a larger group, which is what this place is set up for. The cabin we stayed inwas older and thanlasttime and in seed of renovation. Then aps didn't work. The shower was broken and then floor lifting in the bathroom with mould in the grout. The bed was incredibly... More

This was our 4th visit to Sandy Balls, however it had been 3 years since our last visit. Our parents had recently stayed at the beginning of the year, we were looking for a short break to recharge our batteries. Arrival was quick and easy and welcomed by a smile. Caravan was warm and comfortable ideal as a base whilst... More

We visited Sandy Balls for a short mid-week break at the beginning of May. We were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation. We stayed in a 4 bed lodge overlooking the River Avon and the escarpment. The lodge appeared to have undergone a recent refurb as the kitchen, white goods, bathroom and carpets all seemed virtually brand... More

Please don't use your credit card to book a stay here. My wife and I did and were charged £15:54. Which that wasn't a problem until we realised that we booked a week over my wife's cancer treatment. My wife is terminally ill and had two appointments on the week we booked. We realised after only 12 hours of booking... More

Arrival was quick and easy and on arrival the accommodation was brand new and clean as expected. Unfortunately none of the things you would expect to find were provided, no frying pans, dishcloths, tea towels etc. ONE tea bag was provided for a 6 bed caravan with no sugar. Not what you expect for £300+. A big point here is... More

Clean and well kept holiday village in perfect location. Good sized touring pitches. Great facilities and friendly staff. Pub and restaurant both offer super food. Shops well stocked and good value. Amusements, games room, pools and entertainment great for children. Highly recommended!

In our opinion this park is great if you are over 50 and only want to relax. Our lodge was clean and tidy, small and dated. If anyone used the toilet you could hear everything that happened in there. Beds were uncomfortable and the outside of the lodge was covered in spiders nests. Service in the bar was poor and... More

This was our second time at this holiday village. It's an excellent location. It's just a shame that you don't get value for money. The lodges are reasonably furnished but the beds are so uncomfy. Things that you would expect in your lodge were missing. Washing up liquid, cloth, tea towels and oven mits. These are essential for self catering... More
