Garden Cottage:

In March 2015 we purchased a welfare cottage for use for our members with welfare issues allowing a much needed break in a time of need. Additionally, the cottage has been a marvellous opportunity for members to enjoy a short 3 or 4 day break at a vastly reduced cost. The welfare breaks are allocated via an application process with your Federation Rep.

The Vista Lodge was such an overwhelming success that we purchased a second welfare cottage within the same resort. The Garden Cottage is in a secluded area of the site with a small terrace and garden. Our Garden Cottage also allows you to take up to two dogs. Both cottages have 2 bedrooms; a double, twin and sofa bed so can both sleep between 4 and 6 people.

  • Open plan living
  • Two bedrooms (double has an en-suite) and a sofa bed in the lounge
  • Modern, well-appointed kitchen
  • Large grassed garden with BBQ
  • Bed linen and towels
  • Central heating, wood-effect burner and instant hot water
  • Complimentary early check in from 3:30pm
  • Complimentary use of the gym (over 16s)

Amazing walks, challenging hikes, fabulous fishing, energetic bike rides, horse riding or a round of golf, it’s all at Sandy Balls. Great for everyone - couples, friends, families, walkers, cyclists or outdoor enthusiasts. The village has excellent onsite facilities including an exciting activities program, entertainment every weekend and every day during the school holidays, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, jacuzzi, gym, soft and outdoor play areas, pub, village store, restaurant, The Retreat hair & beauty salon and a Cycle Centre for all your two wheeled needs!

Please note that this lodge is dog friendly and there is an additional cleaning fee of £35 if you wish to take your four legged friend on holiday too!

If you are bringing your dog(s) then please state this at the time of booking.

If you are interested in any of the above dates please email the office here. These slots will be allocated on a first come first basis.

Phone calls or any messages left on our voicemail will not be considered. You will not be able to apply if you attended either cottage in 2022 or are not a federated member.

Once you have your unique code please contact Sandy Balls on 01425 651225 providing your name, collar number, date and unique code. They will already have your name for the allocated date you have chosen so they will check this with you.

Please note that you will need to present your warrant card as proof of who you are when you check in at Sandy Balls so you must be a serving, federated member at the time of your stay.

Please keep an eye on the website as there will be short notice availability on some breaks when the welfare slots are not filled by a welfare case.

If you have a query over welfare availability please contact your local rep or the Federation Office.
