Shepherds Hut Glamping at Sumners Ponds offers quirky and beautifully handcrafted huts, ideal for a quick stop over or a romantic glamping weekend in West Sussex. The Shepherds Hut is located on the bank of the Sumners Lake and has a small veranda over the water with seating. 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.

The Cafe by the Lake is our restaurant and bar which is open to both those staying on site and the general public. We aim to provide the highest standard of food and service.

When you arrive the Smith family and the team will be here to ensure that your glamping break in West Sussex is as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to welcoming you.

I'm looking forward to returning there again and will maybe bring the family and stay in a log cabin next time.

We stayed here as part of a group to celebrate a friends birthday. We stayed in one of the shepherds huts by the lake and it was so lovely. the position, the private deck overlooking the lake, the decor and home comforts in the hut. the added addition of breakfast included was lovely and the restaurant was fantastic on both mornings, even when busy. We also had the evening meal there and were again really happy with the service to such a large group. The toilet and bathroom facilities are amazing - best I have ever seen in a campsite. I highly recommend this place.

"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!
