Sleep under the stars this summer at Sandy Balls


Sleep under the stars this summer at Sandy Balls

With the festival season in full swing, people are looking to try the increasingly popular ‘glamping’ trend for their summer holiday getaway.

Sandy Balls Holiday Centre in the New Forest has introduced four new ‘bell’ tents in time for the summer season, for a sleeping-under-the-stars experience with none of the hassle of ordinary camping.

Sandy Balls’ bell tents are available to hire this summer and come ready with a groundsheet, rug, sleeping mats and cushions, providing the perfect base to explore the five-star Centre’s 120-acre estate in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

With many families being forced to rein in spending and threats of further airline strikes, UK breaks are becoming a more appealing summer holiday option.

Managing director Iain Brown said: “More and more people are turning to last minute UK getaways. We have introduced the bell tents to encourage people of all ages and budgets to enjoy a great summer break at Sandy Balls.

“As well as the bell tents, we’re excited to introduce a new activities programme for 2011 which includes kayaking, windsurfing, bug hunting and mountain bike safaris in the forest.”

To stay in a bell tent, guests can take their pick from a four-night mid-week break starting from £130 or a three-night weekend break starting from £160 for up to four people. Additional standard camping can also be reserved by calling 0845 270 2248 or visit the accommodation section of our website to book online.
