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 Small Lakeside Glamping Pods are located on the Sumners Lake and Farm Pond and can sleep up to two adults and two small children.

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.

Caravanning around the lake

We always have an amazing time caravanning at sumners especially our lakeside pitches, facilities are the best, our friends stayed in a pod which they loved, just one small comment can a little curtain be put across the small window at the back to stop the light coming in? We looked forward to our future bookings this year😄

Stayed 3 nights in a Pod on Farm Pond to fish. The Pods are an excellent idea, they basically replace a tent but you get two electrical sockets an oil heater and lights. Food in The café on the Lake is very good too. 10/10. Thoroughly recommended.

Was disappointed with the swim outside the pod. The table was very dirty. I don’t think it was worth the money

I’ve stayed here on a couple of occasions with family and loved the lodge and camping grounds but the pod was a huge disappointment. We left a day early
