We stayed here 20-23rd March 2014, we stayed in a one bedroom Wooden Lodge, the Lodge was very clean & modern although the settee had seen better days, bed was comfortable and kitchen had all modern facilities. The Holiday village was okay, had two restaurants on site and occasional evening entertainment and a shop on site. There is also a... More

Touring caravan experience. Very quiet. Woodpeckers and foxes. Perhaps rats! Don't leave rubbish in an awning overnight, you will get ' visitors'! It is the the countryside after all! More seriously, there are some superb facilities. BUT. The swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and toilet blocks. could all be cleaner. Beautifully built, but just not clean. If you run a a... More

We have been here many times and always had an enjoyable time. There has been the odd niggle the facilities are way to small for the size of park so swimming is very difficult to get in to and as for the clubhouse and pm entertainment you haven't a chance unless you get there 5pm. That aside the location is... More

We stayed in a log cabin for 2, very clean with new curtains and cushions. Lovely restaurant on site. Hired some bikes which was great fun. A few local pubs around. Would not return as there are many other places to visit but had a very enjoyable break.

We have just returned from a short break at sandy balls. We have been coming here for over 25 years and always have a fabulous time. This time we thought we would try one of the new vista lodges as we love the spectacular view they afford. There is a couple of points I would like to make. The photos... More

We stayed here in our touring caravan for 2 nights (Friday & Saturday), but it wasn't long enough. The site is spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly & there is a general lovely aura about the site. We brought provisions with us for our tea, but one look at their food in the Woodside Inn, we decided to eat in... More

What a lovely holiday village in a lovely area! Our caravan was so clean and well equipped. our dog also loved the little adventures around the site. Worth every penny! I think it's so cheap for a weekend you can spend that type of money on one night in a hotel! 100% we will be returning. Staff are all so... More

Visited Sandy balls for a long weekend camping trip and its as pleasant as ever. The staff there were extremely good very friendly and nothing is too much bother for them. I have been before several times before as it's great for a short break and judging by the facilities great for a longer stay too. All in all well... More
