New Forest Safari Tents for glamping and luxury camping


New Forest safari tents offering glamping and luxury ready tent camping are now back in the New Forest National Park.

It's been a few years now since you were able to enjoy the luxury of sleeping on a proper mattress in a ready erected tent. Now you can experience all the glamour of glamping  (don't say that after a couple of glasses of red!).

I recently visited The Glade at Sandy Balls to see if it was somewhere I could recommend to you. It ticked all the boxes and offers some lovely New Forest luxury camping features I'm sure you'll enjoy.

Don't forget I don't take bookings etc so always contact Sandy Balls direct please.

Here's what's on offer for your Safari tent stay at The Glade at Sandy Balls

  • Luxury bedding with animal themed accessories ( I loved the bunny cushion!)
  • 2 bedrooms with 1 x Kingsize bed  + 1 x quad with 2 bunk beds (all sturdy wood themed build)
  • Well stocked kitchen with sink, microwave, gas hob, kettle and fridge
  • Good quality cutlery, tableware and cooking utensils
  • TV and DVD
  • Hotel standard towels and 2 bathrobes
  • Spacious living area with solid wood table and chairs 
  • Electric lighting
  • Electric hook up
  • Water supply
  • Outdoor seating with comfy cushions and beanbag
  • Gas BBQ
  • External lighting which will look lovely on a balmy summer evening
  • Electric heater

As well as all this:

  • You can enjoy complimentary use of the Gym
  • Parking next to your Safari tent
  • Full use of all Sandy Balls facilities
  • You're close to the Northfields shower block for bathroom facilities 
  • If you feel like a coffee and a piece of cake The Forest Table has a new coffee lounge area with comfy chairs and lovely cakes as well as offering restaurant food. 

The dining area, as you can see is built of sturdy wood table and chairs and if you are eating indoors one evening you should get the glow through the window of your external fairy lights shining in to your Safari tent to give lots of great atmosphere.

As you can see with your door pulled open the decked outside seating area can let you share the chatter with BBQ cooking going on outside. Comfy seating is inside and out.

Children will enjoy their bunk area, although I don't know who will sort out who has the fox and who the bunny cushion!

Internal furnishings aren't all identical so it may never arise!

There's lots for children to enjoy and staying in a New Forest Safari tent means you know that when you come back after a fantastic day cycling around our New Forest lanes and cycle paths or visiting all the sights on offer, you can all flop down into a comfy bed at night.

After all that is the idea of New Forest safari tents and glamping in luxury camping!

Don't forget you'll have full use of all facilities too, so you may fancy a refreshing swim, in the indoor or outdoor pool, a sauna or maybe you'll need a bit of a pampering in the Retreat! Dad can work out in the gym if he's still got some energy to burn. 

Sandy Balls is dog friendly too in many areas and you can now take your dog into the pet friendly Woodside Inn which is the onsite pub.

The children can enjoy lots of activities on offer and one of the most popular is walking with an Alpaca!

I hope this info is helpful to you if you're planning to stay in a New Forest Safari tent in the future. They offer glamping and luxury camping and I hope you really enjoy your stay. 

If you're wondering about Ready Tents they're no longer available, but Sandy Balls still have their camping Pods if you don't want to stay under canvas.

Don't forget bookings should be made through Sandy Balls directly please.
