Beautiful settings and good accommodation. This is our 5th visit to Sandy Balls. We have been coming here since the children were little....they are now 18 and 16 and still love it!! Every time we have visited we have either seen deer, ducks, swans, squirrels or awoken to the sound of owls! The accommodation is very clean and well maintained....
