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.

Swallow's Hide, is the ultimate in luxury glamping in West Sussex and would tempt even the most reluctant campers. Situated on the bank of the Sumners Lake at Sumners Ponds Fishery & Campsite the outlook and atmosphere is unrivalled.

Drinking water is available on the veranda. Although there aren't toilet or shower facilities in Swallow's Hide but the luxury amenity block and washing up facilities are located just behind.

"Safari tent info"

Mrs S Rogers - Stayed with partner, Oct 2020

The only draw back we had was there were no curtains up at the new windows, this did not provide the cosiness of the log burner in the evenings. Also we could not use the safe as the last occupants closed it, we asked for it to be fixed and no one came out to deal with... The only draw back we had was there were no curtains up at the new windows, this did not provide the cosiness of the log burner in the evenings. Also we could not use the safe as the last occupants closed it, we asked for it to be fixed and no one came out to deal with it. So on our long walks we had to take personal belongings which would of been better kept in the safe. Apart from that a very enjoyable weekend break.

I stayed at Sumners in the Safari Tent with my two sons, aged 8 and 9, for 3 nights in February; despite storm Dennis deciding to show itself, we had a great time, involving some fishing, camping (more like glamping!), and walking. A lovely spot to spend some time at, and we were particularly surprised at how good the food at the café was - it also became a much needed warm haven for us during strong winds and rain which as far as my boys were concerned, simply added to the 'thrill factor'! We look forward to coming again. It was also great to be able to use a shower/toilet block which was well maintained and clean!

It was such a great weekend. It was such fun staying in then rent & having to keep the fire going. Whilst me and my daughter stayed in the warm and watched films my partner & my son loved being able to fish off the decking on out private fishing peg. We will defiantly be returning in the summer x

"Wonderful"

Miss M Rice - Stayed with partner, Sep 2019

Always stay in the safari tent because of location on the lake and all it offers. Wonderful place to relax and unwind and all the other lakes are close by with great fishing.
