Stay ‘Cool’ with activity survival plan

Stay ‘Cool’ with Activity Survival Plan

Keeping ‘cool’ throughout the summer is at the top of mums’ and their children’s holiday survival lists

To help keep families entertained, five-star award-winning Sandy Balls Holiday Centre has devised a brand new Activity Planner filled with imaginative, creative and action-packed ideas which can be enjoyed by both holidaymakers and day visitors.

Parents who are keen for their children to Get Active can choose from a range of activities at Sandy Balls’ stunning 120-acre estate in the heart of the beautiful New Forest. Opt for Archery, Climbing, Combat Games, Laser Clay, Football Skills sessions, Junior Gym, Junior Spin or Parachute Games. All the family can get involved with the Family Fun Cheerleading, Zumba or a Little and Large Football Tournament, which mums and dads can both join in with.

To Explore the Forest try a Guided Mountain Bike Safari led by experts with inside knowledge of the New Forest or Mudrats, for 7 to 11-year-olds who can enjoy the thrill of a muddy off-road adventure under the watchful eye of Cycle Centre instructors. Under-5s will enjoy a Leaf Sticks adventure and guided Woodland Walks are free for all the family.

And if the weather lets you down, Get Creative won’t. Head inside for Little ‘uns Music, Collage, Drama Workshop, Biscuit Decorating & Basket Making and sand down wood to create your own badges, key-rings and presents. Or try Clay Play, Tie Dye, Fabric Painting or Woodcraft Carving.

When you fancy something further afield, Wet & Wild uses the new Sandy Balls Activity Bus to take visitors from the Centre to the beach for surfing sessions, the harbour for windsurfing, a lake for kayaking or the picturesque Beaulieu River which is perfect for canoeing.


Booking is made easy with a new Sandy Balls Holiday and Activities Booking Hub. Call them on 01425 651225.

Sandy Balls is the perfect getaway at any time of the year. Its timber lodges are hidden away in peaceful glades, far from the everyday world for families, couples and friends. Alternatively, discover the world of camping in a ‘Ready-Tent’, take your caravan or try ‘glamping’ in a posh new bell tent. For more information or to book online visit our accommodation section.
