Experience camping in a family glamping pod at Sumners Ponds Fishery & Campsite. The concept is to bring all your own equipment less the tent – so you need to bring your own bedding including mattress or camp bed, cooking equipment and anything else you think you might need for a camping trip. Best of all you will be cosy and warm with no wet tent to pack away at the end of your stay.

The glamping pod consists of lockable double doors, carpeted flooring, electric heater and lighting with the use of a double plug socket. There is also a small decking area on each of the pods for use as a seating and cooking area. At each pod there is a picnic table exclusively for your use.

Use of the showers blocks and electricity is included. Fishing is separate and tickets can be purchased when you arrive. A Family Glamping Pod can accommodate up to five adults.

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.

Lovely clean campsite

Coles, Chelsea - 11/04/2024

I visit summers ponds a lot with my daughter. The staff are always very friendly, it’s easy to get to and always clean and tranquil, even down to the bird sounds in the toilet/shower facilities. My accommodation is always clean and presentable upon arrival. The only negative is there is nothing else to do apart from fish and as we don’t fish It is very boring.. but nice to just be with nature and take a nice walk which is the main point of camping. My daughter absolutely loves the ponies on site, that’s her main focus, we always bring carrots and apples to feed them and it’s honestly the highlight of our trip.

Service is always welcoming. The bathroom facilities are the best we've ever experienced. The location is great. The accommodation is what it needs to be (waterproof!) And the little garden area is very nice.My only criticism is that for 2 out of the 3 years we've stayed here at this time, there has been building work happening next to us as they put up a new lodge. This has disrupted the peace and quiet which is a shame.
