B&B Shepherd’s Huts

These quirky and beautifully handcrafted huts are ideal for a quick stop over or a romantic weekend away in the beautiful West Sussex countryside. All four of the Shepherd's Huts are located in the Sumners Park with 'Old George' and 'Gabriel' boasting views from the bank of the Sumners Lake. All of our Shepherd's Huts are named after characters in Thomas Hardy novels - a family favourite.

Included with a Shepherd's Hut is: Breakfast at The Cafe by the Lake, use of the toilet & shower block, a basket of fire wood, a kettle, tea, coffee and hot chocolate, a small fridge, bed linen and table and chairs inside and out.

You can see the positions of our Shepherd's Huts on our Camping Map. 'Old George' (OG) and 'Gabriel' (G) are positioned lakeside on the Sumners Lake. 'Boldwood' (B) and 'Bathsheba Everdene' (BE) are positioned slightly back from the edge of the water. Please note that the lakeside Shepherd's Huts are not suitable to fish from. All Shepherd's Huts are unfortunately not disabled accessible.
