Welcome to Sumners Ponds

Following the latest instruction from the government regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the “Lockdown Road Map”, our campsite will be closed until Monday 12th April for self-contained units/accommodation only until the 17th May at the earliest. After the 17th May, providing the government allows, we will be able to open fully subject to new lock-down, tier restrictions and / or extensions.

On behalf of the Smith Family and all the Staff we would like to thank you for your patience and support at what is an exceedingly difficult time for all concerned. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sumners Ponds in what we very much hope will be the not-so-distant future.

See you soon and stay safe!


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 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 campsite offers a range of accommodation types. At Sumners we have a mixture of hardstanding and grass pitches for caravans, motorhomes, campervans and tents. We also have a various glamping units including Lakeside Log Cabins, Safari Tents, Shepherd's Huts and Camping Pods.

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 visit with us is as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to welcoming you.
