I arrived at 2.50pm with my two children in tow. I walked into the welcome centre and was told the cabin wasn't ready till 3pm. We drove down, noted the cabin was clean through the window, drove back and joined the queue of people watching the clock. 2.58, 2.59, 3pm! The receptionist opens the cupboard and starts handing out keys.... More

Just got back from a 5 day midweek break from Sandy Balls. I was speechless when we reached our lodge, we stayed in the premier forest lodges. It's very luxurious, very clean, fantastic comfortable bed. Fully kitted out to a high spec. And the view from the decking of our lodge was fantastic. The park was very quiet and totally... More

Please don't get me wrong, I have been to Sandy Balls on a number of occasions and had a really good time, but on this occasion, it wasn't so great. I normally camp in a tent, but I thought I would push the boat out and hire one of the new camping pods. The images on the website give the... More

It is something of a tradition now that we go for a pre Christmas break at Sandy Balls, quite a number of years now. Still a great place to go, location couldn't be better. The caravan's I must admit have now seen better days, ours was tired and could have done with a spray of mould remover and the floors... More

Myself and 11 family members went to sandy balls for my Nan's 70th. We had two lodges and had an amazing stay. The lodges were the right combination of cosy and modern and all the facilities were in full working order. The restaurant and bar facilities were outstanding with good old fashioned customer service and top notch food. Due to... More

We booked a weekend away for the family, we must say that the price for the weekend was really good compared to normal B&B's. We were not disappointed in any way, a brilliant weekend in a lovely setting in the heart fo the New Forest with plenty to do onsite and off site in the local area. We stayed in... More

Back again for family get together. Great to see the lodges have been re furbished(last years lodges were awful), but why oh why are they turning Sandy Balls into an expensive yuppie complex.Please bring back the rustic charm the park used to be,an affordable place to eat, drink, and stay. Entertainment very good, shame there was not a lot of... More

Spent four nights (Mon to Fri) in a premium vista lodge (2 bedrooms) and was really impressed - It rained heavily all week (which created an interesting nighttime soundtrack as the drops drummed on the roof!) but the accommodation was really cosy - It was also spotless and really peaceful - Others have criticized the beds on here and I...
