The Sandpit at Moyles Court is a popular local attraction during the summer months. It forms the steep side to a natural sand hill neart to the villages of Ellingham and Blashford, a little north of Ringwood in the New Forest in Hampshire. At the top of the hill is an ancient bowl barrow with stunning views over the Avon Valley. Good views are also possible from the top of the sandpit.
The area is known as Moyles Court after a local country house and there is a small stream and ford nearby in which children often play. This little stream feeds into the River Avon just west of Ellingham, which then flows south to Christchurch. There are numerous walks in the surrounding area.
