Bordered by the River Avon, the location is fantastic for outdoor activities such as fishing and kayaking as well as walking, cycling, and touring the charming villages, secluded glades, and trails in the New Forest.

The award-winning beaches at Bournemouth and Poole, and the many local attractions in Dorset and Hampshire, including the Jurassic Coast, Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle, and Durdle Door, and Paulton’s Park, home of Peppa Pig World, are all within easy reach.

Sandy Balls Holiday Park is a safe, leafy haven set amidst tranquil, ancient woodlands, a delightful place to walk, play, relax and unwind. The resident alpacas and of course, the nosy New Forest Ponies, are among the many animals and wildlife who share the local environment.
