Experience camping in a 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. The Family Lakeside Glamping Pod is located on the Farm Pond and can sleep 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.

Pleasant New Years break

Pod was large and clean, in a peaceful location. The facilities were very clean and nice also. Staff encountered were helpful and friendly. Some suggestions for improvements would be to have more privacy in the outdoor space of the pod. It would be ideal to have more solid fencing around the bench area or more foliage.Some of my family were in FP1 which was a garden pod and advertised to have an enclosed garden area, however this was not the case so the dogs could not be let off the lead in there as thought. A sliding gate would be ideal to cover the entrance/car parking space.

Great site, brilliant fishing

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2nd visit here and cant wait to return. Everything is great from check in with the lovely Debbie, to the various accommodations is spot on, the fishing both times we’ve been is awesome. The only small point, it would have been lovely to have the ‘cafe by the lake’ open after 4PM as the food and the view are great. Also highly recommended is ‘The Queens Head’ pub which is a 5 minute saunter and does great food in the evening

We stayed in a pod and found it great value, the pod was spacious and we treated it like a tent with our own camp beds and chairs.

Lovely surroundings with the lakes and the ducks even the rain couldn't spoil our time. The restaurant and the food were top notch also the the toilet block was spotless, in the past we have camped with a tent but my knees have let me down so this time we had a pod just like camping without knocking in tentpegs...
