Vista Open Weekend 15th June

The view from a Vista Lodge at Sandy Balls holiday park

Unique New Forest development launch

The second phase of a high-end development in the New Forest has just been launched with an open weekend planned for June 15 and 16.

The luxury lodges, being built at award-winning Sandy Balls Holiday Village, give a unique way to experience the New Forest with panoramic views from an escarpment overlooking the Avon Valley.

The showhome of the new Vista Lodges will be unveiled on June 15 and will feature designer touches such as floor-to-ceiling windows which completely open up to bring the outside in. An infinity floor extends throughout the lodge to a veranda with a Jacuzzi.

The new Vista Lodges follow the success of phase one in the grounds of the beautiful 120-acre Sandy Balls country estate. Shared ownership makes the dream an affordable reality by buying four or eight weeks each year for 15 years.

Sandy Balls Managing Director Iain Brown said: “Our first phase of lodges were such a success that we are proud to be able to offer more.

“We have learned what owners want and improved on that for our second phase, with new designer features to make even more of the stunning setting and views.”

The fully-equipped lodges sleep up to six people and include all the luxuries you would expect with a flat screen TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and Wi-Fi, a cosy wood-effect burner, full heating and instant hot water.

And the five-star holiday village facilities are free to enjoy, with indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzi and sauna, free gym membership and exercise classes. Top-to-toe pampering is available at the hair and beauty suite. New Forest ingredients for supper can be purchased at the fully-stocked on-site supermarket The Country Store and there’s a choice of the cosy Woodside Inn and Pizza in the Piazza restaurant to make catering easy.

A rotational booking system means that spring, summer, autumn, winter or even magical Christmas getaways are all available throughout the ownership period. Spare weeks can be rented out to offset costs. Ownership also buys membership to an elite club with a personal concierge service to ensure every stay is perfect by pre-booking tables for dinner or scheduling special activities or adventures. Freshly laundered towels and linen will be ready for every visit.

Sandy Balls is the gateway to the New Forest’s ancient woods and magnificent coast which were chosen as a king’s favourite playground nearly a thousand years ago and have remained special today. New Forest ponies, cattle and deer roam over the idyllic landscape which is ideal for walking, cycling and horseback treks across the National Park. Charming towns and villages make memorable days out, as well as world-famous attractions including the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, Rothschild’s Exbury Gardens and Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park.

The new Vista Lodges showhome will be open from 10am – 4pm on Saturday June 15 & Sunday June 16, with a glass of bubbly for guests who come and view.
