Shepherd's Huts | Shepherd hut on bank of lake.

Here at Sumners Ponds, we’ve got a variety of unique places to stay, whether you’re looking for a family glamping experience in our Lodges or a more traditional camping experience in our pods! Today, we’re sharing our fantastic Shepherd’s Huts—a rustic but cosy way to experience the great outdoors. 

Here’s a review from someone who recently stayed in one:

“We had a lovely stay in a shepherd’s hut right next to the lake. It was a nice, secluded location with a great view over the lake. The shepherd’s hut had a fridge, allowing us to keep the drinks cold during the day/evening and have milk for a nice cup of tea in the morning. Great breakfast at the nearby cafe on the lake. We had a great time.”

Nestled just outside the charming town of Horsham in Sussex lies a hidden gem waiting to be discovered – Sumners Ponds. Offering a beautiful retreat amidst the Sussex countryside, our shepherd’s huts provide a unique holiday experience for those seeking a change from the normal while having a relaxing getaway.
