Winning gold in the David Bellamy Conservation Award for the 21st year running is testimony to the amount we’ve invested in the forest. Working with the Forestry Commission ensures the 120-acre estate continues to flourish. In and around the woodland lodges, we have introduced water saving devices and recycle over 80% of waste. Special lighting has been installed to reduce light pollution making it ideal for star gazing. Family swim sessions in our pools

The Forest Hub, is your one stop shop for adventure on two wheels. With cycle routes to suit all abilities, it’s great fun to hire a bike, tandem or tag-a-long to explore the forest. And with lots of onsite activities on offer you’ll be spoilt for choice. Take the opportunity to experience nature in our forest surroundings. Join one of our bug hunts or woodland walks. Enjoy a football tournament or, for the adventurous, try out our laser combat games. Activities vary throughout the year.

Sandy Balls is all about all year round activity - whether you like walking, riding, fishing, swimming, going to the gym or just enjoying some me time in the spa.

The kids can play with new friends and build dens - enjoying the freedom of safe surroundings while adults do as much or as little as they please. With something for everyone, choose your idea of the great outdoors, gentle exercise or full-on action and fun. There’s something different to do each and every day of your stay.

Sandy Balls history

Back in time

We’ve been making memories for guests now for nearly 100 years! Generation after generation return to our New Forest getaway, to spend time together, to relax and of course to have fun! The land was bought by Ernest Westlake in 1919. In the early years it was home to a youth movement but his ultimate vision was to provide a beauty spot for families, and so in 1937 several log cabins were placed among the trees. These later became home to evacuees during the war. During the 70s and 80s the village began to transform into the Sandy Balls of today – featuring luxury accommodation, five-star facilities, a host of activities and a team which is renowned for its award-winning welcome! The name Sandy Balls dates back to the reign of King Henry VII when ‘sandyballas’ - domed sand and gravel outcrops on our western boundary first appeared on historic maps.
