Things to do at Sandy Balls
Our Cycle Centre has everything you need to explore the forest on 2 wheels! Can’t fit your own bikes in the car? No problem! We’ve got a great range of cycles in all shapes and sizes you can hire including tag-a-longs and trailers!
When the sun’s shining there’s nowhere better than our seasonal outdoor pool for soaking up the rays or enjoying a refreshing swim. Open seasonally.
The pet friendly Woodside Inn is the perfect place for a well-deserved drink or to enjoy some gourmet pub food. Soak up the sun on our veranda with a chilled glass of wine or a pint of local beer… you’re on holiday after all! For great nights in, there’s also the Woodside Takeaway in the Woodside Courtyard.
Refurbished for 2020! Our state-of-the-art gym is fully air conditioned and offers you the latest fitness equipment, including cardio machines with entertainment system. If you want to take a high-energy class, then Boot Camp or Box Fit sessions will help take your fitness to the next level.
Coin pushers, colorful lights and a noisy blips and beeps, our arcade has everything from the classics to the latest video game technology. So stuff a fiver into the change machine and try and beat the claw!
If you’re looking to book an activity, hire a bike, stock up on camping supplies or browse our great selection of outdoor essentials then head to the Forest Hub. It’s bursting with a wide range of clothing, toys and Sandy Balls souvenirs!
The Village Square is the heart of the park and where it all happens. You’ll find all our facilities here so if you fancy a morning swim, a bite to eat and dazzlin’ evening entertainment, you’ve come to the right place!
Enjoy ultimate relaxation in our sauna and spa Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi is the ideal place to relax after a day of fun and adventures. If you really want to turn up the heat then why not try out the sauna?
Have some well-deserved “me time” at The Retreat, our pampering beauty treatment suite. Choose from a wide range of wonderful sensations including aromatherapy massages, hot-stone massage, and luxurious facials and manicures.
After receiving advice from Public Health England we have taken the decision to close The Retreat until further notice. We appreciate your understanding.
From all the ingredients for a great family meal, to just your favourite morning paper, our Village Store right here on the park has something for everyone. We now also have a dedicated gluten-free range of products.
Little ones will have a great time burning off any excess energy scrambling through tunnels, whizzing down slides, heading for the top of the climbing frames and loads of other physical challenges in this fun and safe environment. We’ve also got cool outdoor adventure playgrounds at various locations around the village.
If you go into the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise! Introduced to Sandy Balls in 2019 as part of the new development, discover our Bluebells Play Area. Ready and waiting for your little explorers, jump, slide, swing and climb your way through our wooden jungle!
