Meet our guests

We brought our dog Roscoe with us – (our first holiday with him) and it was great. He had a lovely time running and sniffing around the New Forest and our lodge was really comfortable and clean!

I have just asked my 2 children (6,10) what did they like about Sandy Balls and this the reply they gave me: The best bit of our holiday was hiring bikes and cycling in the New Forest and around the park, making tie-dye t-shirts, going swimming, the zip wire at the adventure playground and staying in the warm and cosy caravan.

We have always done camping, but as my son is only 10 weeks old we decided to book a Premium Caravan. It was amazing! Thank you Sandy Balls.

The caravan we stayed in was spotless. Our 8 & 11 year old boys said "WOW" as soon as they stepped into the caravan and immediately said they wanted to return - our break hadn't even started :-)

The park itself is fantastic and caters for every age group and holiday type but maintains a sense of relaxation and tranquillity. The activities and facilities are brilliant and the overall experience far exceeded our expectations. Thank you to the great team who make this happen.

There was lots for my daughter to do and the walks are amazing we even did a walk in the rain and still loved it!We will definitely be coming back at the start of next year I'm really excited already I can't wait!

I would also like to thank all of the staff as they were all so polite and helpful and they made the our family holiday so much more of an unforgetable experience.

As regular visitors to Sandy Balls we decided to try something different by camping in the Cornfield area. It provided an authentic camping experience and we enjoyed the friendly, festival-like atmosphere whilst still being able to use the superb leisure facilities.

The best part of our camping holiday at Sandy Balls Holiday Village was the great atmosphere in the Cornfield Camping area.

Lee Mallot & family, Cornfield Campers

We had never camped as a family before and we really enjoyed the whole Cornfield Camping experience. We camped with some friends who stayed in an adjacent tent and we enjoyed some great quality time together. All the facilities were great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

I have worked as a bar supervisor for 8 years in the Woodside Inn , and made many friends over the years, guests and workmates alike. I recently decided that I needed a change, so have now gone over to housekeeping which is hard work but very enjoyable as I am trusted to get on with the job.

Hi my name is Jax, It must have been 23 years ago when myself and my family came here on holiday and fell in love with Sandy Balls. We first visited with a little Monza caravan, and stayed in Northfield. We sold the caravan as the children were getting older and space was limited so we started to come and stay in one of the holiday homes (caravan), and for the last few years we stayed in a lodge. We enjoyed staying here so much, we said we would love to buy a holiday home so that we could visit more regularly so we bought one! By this time our 3 children were all grown up and 2 were married , the other at university. We asked the Managing Director if he would let us know should a property come up for sale and fortunately he had a plot in mind which had never been developed. We were thrilled as it was in a lovely position.

Our home was built and we were so excited when it arrived. We have never looked back and have been so happy over the last 6 years of being in our lovely home Rivendell. I have worked as a bar supervisor for 8 years in the Woodside inn , and made many friends over the years, guests and workmates alike. I recently decided that I needed a change, so have now gone over to housekeeping, which is a complete contrast as, in the Woodside I talked all day to passing people, and now I work alone cleaning. No stress, just hard work but very enjoyable as I am left to my own devices and trusted to get on with the job. My husband also works here first as a warden then in housekeeping.

Faith Hodson,

There was something for all of us from age 3 to 85

“We decided to book a family get-together at Sandy Balls as we had 3 big birthdays to celebrate this year – my son’s 60th, my granddaughter’s 40th and my 85th. As we are such a large family, from different parts of the country, it is usually difficult for us to arrange a time and place where we are all able to meet.

Booking a mixture of eight lodges and caravans meant that all 33 of us could celebrate together. We enjoyed the swimming pool, bike hire and forest walks – there was something for all of us ranging from age 3 to 85 and my great grandchildren particularly enjoyed the swimming poolWe had great fun in the evening when we could all spend time together in the restaurant/bar enjoying the evening entertainment – even doing the conga! We look forward to coming to Sandy Balls again soon.”

Betty Wilkes,

It is a great and varied job and I am looking forward to new challenges as the holiday village grows and to ensure each guest has a holiday to remember and cherish!

Having worked at Sandy Balls for over 10 years, I very much enjoy my time here and feel a valued member of the Sandy Balls team.

My title is Retail Team Leader at the Forest Hub, this is the centre for cycle hire, camping equipment and a retail area for clothes outdoor sports equipment and gifts and toys.  It is also the centre for booking the activities that occur each week.  This means that I am dealing with a huge variety of work, situations and people which can present challenges and at times requires patience and diplomacy!  But there are not many days I do not go home with a smile on my face!!

Another aspect of my job is to supervise and train the assistants which join us through the busy key periods. For a lot of them this is their first job, so watching them grow and develop is incredibly rewarding. This is also how I started my journey with Sandy Balls working holidays whilst at school and university.

It is a great and varied job and I am looking forward to new challenges as the holiday village grows and to ensure each guest has a holiday to remember and cherish!!!

My career has continued to grow and after Sandy Balls invested in me to do a degree in Holiday Park Management in 2009 I haven’t looked back

I joined the team at Sandy Balls in 2000 as a receptionist and worked my way up to assistant team leader then the team leader role of reception. That role gave me a diverse amount of work experience including problem solving, team leadership and, innovative thinking. My career has continued to grow and after Sandy Balls invested in me to do a degree in Holiday Park Management in 2009 I haven’t looked back and after 15 years I have become a fully-fledged manager for 4 years and loving my job! The work experience I have gained from Sandy Balls is second to none. Confidence, knowledge, drive and an ability to think on my feet.

The day itself went without a hitch. The sun shone. We had photos in front of the rhododendrons and overlooking the view at the top of Good Friday Hill. The room looked amazing for both our ceremony and then our reception

When looking for a wedding venue, we really wanted the New Forest as it is such a beautiful place and we have spent many lovely days there. We have big families so had over 110 guests so not that many venues could accommodate us, and those that could were often very expensive. Then we came across Sandy Balls.

We immediately liked the Woodside Suite as we wanted a big room that had a bar in it as we wanted a great atmosphere and didn’t want people spread out over several rooms. Sandy Balls talked us through several menu options and we settled on a sit down meal for the wedding breakfast and a hog roast for the evening. They even helped us find the perfect disco.

I would say that the whole day was perfect, but as we ended up having a whole wedding weekend, I would have to say the whole weekend was perfect. My Mum and sisters and I spent the afternoon being pampered in the beauty salon on Friday. Then most of our guests arrived on Friday night and we arranged to all meet up in the restaurant for dinner the night before the wedding which was lovely as we got to spend some extra time with people we hadn’t seen for a while.

The day itself went without a hitch. The sun shone. We had photos in front of the rhododendrons and overlooking the view at the top of Good Friday Hill. The room looked amazing for both our ceremony and then our reception. We had a drinks reception in the Courtyard whilst they prepared the room for dinner and the staff were all great.

The DJ was brilliant and the atmosphere was really buzzing. I don’t think the dancefloor emptied all evening. It was a day that we will never forget.

And to top it all off, our families and some of our closest friends stayed on for the Sunday night too so we had a lovely BBQ on our veranda of our lodge.

Once we arrived at Sandy Balls, everything was so easy as it was all in one place and lots of our guests commented on how nice it was to make a weekend of it. We can’t thank Sandy Balls enough for a wonderful wedding weekend.
