The shepherds hut is furnished with a comfy memory foam double bed with clean white linen and cosy throws. There is a rustic table and chairs along with a wood burning stove that will keep the shepherds hut pleasantly warm even through the night.

There is a small fridge for essentials like milk and a kettle along with complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate. There aren't any toilet and shower facilities at Bathsheba but the luxury state of the art amenity block is just a minute walk away. Breakfast at The Café by the Lake is included with your stay.

Glamping at Sumners Ponds Fishery and Campsite in West Sussex is a unique and beautiful spot set in tranquil countryside amongst 100 acres of lakes, woodland and pasture.

The campsite itself boasts high quality campsite facilities, acres of woodland, a working farm and fishing lakes. All this in a beautiful and secluded setting which is perfect for just relaxing, or for the more active, exploring the many footpaths and safe cycle-ways within and around the site.

Sumners Ponds is an ideal touring base, with many beautiful towns and villages near by. Access to the South Downs National Park and the coast is easy, while Brighton is only half an hour by car and London only one hour away. There really is something for everyone.

"quirky shepherds hut"

Miss A Clark - Stayed with family, Apr 2019

After searching online for glamping options, I came across Sumners Pond. I checked out the pods first, however as a non camper I didn't think this was for me. Then I saw the shepherds huts, one look at the lakeside huts and I knew these were perfect for what I wanted.... After searching online for glamping options, I came across Sumners Pond. I checked out the pods first, however as a non camper I didn't think this was for me. Then I saw the shepherds huts, one look at the lakeside huts and I knew these were perfect for what I wanted. Booking process was very easy, confirmation email and follow up of checking in email contained all information needed. When arriving at Sumners I was met by one of the rangers who gave us a welcome pack and useful information, including the anticipated arrival of some lambs and calfs. When we pulled up to the hut, parking space right outside great for unloading, I was shocked by how small it appeared. However on opening the door and entering, it was like a tardis. A massive double bed, table and stools, log burner, kettle, fridge and still room for a dance floor in the middle. The outside area had two chairs and tables and an amazing view over the lake. The electric fire had been put on in the day so it was toasty warm for us. We slept brilliantly, had to get up in the night to use the facilities, we came armed with torches, however there was no need for them. The lighting throughout the site was beautifully done. The toilet block was secure with a keypad so you felt safe whatever time you used it. It was immaculate on every visit and birdsong was piped through speakers to bring the outside in. As part of the shepherds hut booking, breakfast is included, this is served in the cafe by the lake. There is a wide range of choice and we tried something different each morning, we also had dinner on the second evening, everything was delicious and we definitely weren't left hungry. We didn't have any need to contact anyone during our stay, however, every member of the team we came into contact with, rangers, waiting staff, cleaning team, reception and volunteers throughout the site couldn't have been nicer. An amazing place that we have already recommended and will undoubtedly return to. Thankyou for a memorable stay!

"Repeat customer"

Ms N Dumbleton - Stayed with partner, Feb 2019

I stay in the lake side Shepard huts regularly as I work in the local area and commute, I started staying here out of sheer laziness and fell in love with the place. I stay year round and have never had an issue, like the staff, the huts are warm and welcoming!

"Wonderful"

Miss T Simpson - Stayed Feb 2019

This was my second visit to Sumners ponds, this time I stayed in Gabrial shepherds hut. The accommodation was beautifully rustic in design and decoration, the bed very comfortable and the wood burner kept me warm and cosy during storm Eric! Plenty of wood and kindling... This was my second visit to Sumners ponds, this time I stayed in Gabrial shepherds hut. The accommodation was beautifully rustic in design and decoration, the bed very comfortable and the wood burner kept me warm and cosy during storm Eric! Plenty of wood and kindling supplied. The huts are B & B and the breakfast in the lovely cafe on the lake is plentiful and 5*. There are no wash or toilet facilities in the huts but the shower block is only a minute or 2 away, and is warm and impeccably clean. There are several woodland walks leading to surrounding villages and the local pub. The pub is a short walk from the site and is very welcoming, also serves good food. Apart from being set in beautiful tranquil surroundings, the site boasts 5 fishing lakes, being the main reason I initially choose to visit. They have a well stocked tackle shop and very knowledgeable and helpful staff. My stay was just perfect apart from storm Eric, but even with strong winds and rain, my hut was warm and cozy, the breakfast set me up nicely for the day and I still managed to fish. All of the staff are so very welcoming and friendly. I definitely recommend this site.

"Childrens activities"

J Evans - Stayed with partner, Sep 2018

Although we didn't bring children with us I noticed the play area and i thought it was small and only suitable for very young children, also only suitable for dry weather. A barn kitted out as a play area like Drusillas would be good but then its an extra cost, staff...
