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.

We had a fabulous time, having never stayed at this time of year before, it surpassed our exectations!. The Shepherds huts we hired were wonderfully warm, and all the staff we encountered were brilliant. We particularly wanted to mention, Caroline & Gabe in the cafe: as they went above & beyond in helping my sister Karen, who uses crutches. They made sure that we were always seated comfortably & close to the disabled access. We also particularly wanted to mention Simon too, who very kindly attended to some greenery that had been making itself a "noise nuisance" with the high winds that were blowing on the first night of her stay in Old George, tap,tap,tap repeatedly, & after a conversaton with him in the bathrooms block, he quietly sorted it & she & Colin had a much better nights sleep the following night!!We were so pleased with our stay, we have already booked again for the weekend before Valentines day, in Iris Lodge.Very many thanks to everyone at Sumners for a wonderful

Have visited many times before, never disappoints. I mainly go to fish in the well stocked and multiple lakes so dont venture off site too much. There is a lovely park in Horsham, a short distance away, well worth a visit. Staff are always friendly and attentive, food and amenities are great.

Another fabulous weekend by the world’s worst camper!

Wheeler, Michelle - 01/09/2023

This was the 5th year of returning to Sumners Pond. It has become an annual tradition with five families and we are already booked for next year. I am not an enthusiastic camper as I hate tents but the fact that there are options that include huts and pods has meant I am able to continue to join our group each year. There are usually 21 in our group and all of us are able to choose what’s best for our budget and enjoyment. The bathroom facilities are great- which has been a very important deciding factor! The chilled atmosphere around the site and great cafe with its helpful staff makes it a place where even the most unenthusiastic camper returns year on year!
