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.

There are three camping areas at Sumners Ponds; Bluebell Park, Ribbon Park and Sumners Park. There are a total of a total of 90 pitches in these camping area, all of which have electric hook-up available. They are a mixture of grass and hardstanding gravel pitches some of which are positioned on the edge of the lakes and others in more family orientated areas of the site.

We have two Lakeside Log Cabins, each with its own character and charm, enjoying an enviable setting with their own private fishing veranda. These superb log cabins boast fantastic views over the lake and offer a paradise to fishermen and nature lovers alike.

Our Shepherd's Huts are quirky and beautifully handcrafted. They are ideal for a quick stop over or a romantic weekend away. 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. Also breakfast is included!

Our two Safari Tents, Swallow's Hide and Willow's Hide, are the ultimate in luxury camping and would tempt even the most reluctant campers. Situated on the bank of the Sumners Lake the outlook and atmosphere is unrivalled.

Nestled on the bank of Farm Pond sits our unique mini lodge Robin’s Nest. Perfect for anyone looking to relax, unwind and recharge their batteries. It is light and cosy with tasteful furnishing and is fully equipped to a high standard.

Weekend away

Green, Mark - 27/01/2023

We like this site because it’s local to us. However I think it’s expensive and at times the site looks tired and in need of some TLC. The entrance is not welcoming with large pots holes and the roads and paths around the site are very uneven and poorly lit. Having said this we continue to use the site as it’s convenient for a weekend away.

Moorhen Lodge was beautifully refurbished and had everything you could need. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Waking up to the view over the lake on a crisp winter morning was beautiful. We booked the dog meadow and dog woods which our 10 year old dog loved, brilliant idea and would highly recommend. The surrounding walks were very relaxing. We had a lovely time and didn’t want to come home.

Swallowhide is marvellous

Hickmore, Elizabeth - 13/01/2023

Thank you. I loved. Sumners Pond, Barnsgreen is a delightful community and the Queens Head was a bonus for evening meals.The Swallows Hide was just glorious, wonderful to have our own shower and toilet. The log burner and central heating kept us cosy, even in January!Debbie and the staff were very friendly and helpful especially changing from a Shepherds hut to the Safari Tent. And also very welcoming.I found some of the emails were out of date and I found the website not the easiest to navigate. Had I known the Safari Tent was so well equipped with a full kitchen I would have brought at least breakfast stuff and maybe lunch stuff too. Only a slight regret, but it might be good to update some of the emails and maybe make the website more user friendly.Despite having 75% rain over the weekend it was still a memorable time.I loved the cafe by the lake and it’s decor.

Been here twice now, its a lovely place with great facilities - however upon checking in i was told that the lovely cafe(which swayed my decision to stop over here for a little break) was not open. I did not see this on the website anywhere to notify before i booked, i was very disappointed as we didn’t want to drive anywhere to go for dinn er or drinks - we ended up going to the local pub and it was lovely - but it should be somewhere warning you that it is closed before you make the decision to book.

New Year Break

Everett, Michael - 10/01/2023

We normally come to Sumners Ponds in our camper van but decided for New Year to try a pod. They may be basic camping but provided you have the right kit they are warm and given the weather, watertight! Staff were very helpful booking and in resolving parking issues. Cafe was as good as ever and so were the walks around the area. Toilets and showers were spotless as usual. We will be returning.

In the main very satisfied with the site and the friendliness of the staff, especially in the café. Whilst the showers were clean and comfortably warm I felt there was a need for more coat hooks etc. in the shower cubicle, as the water from the shower wets the whole floor.The potwash etc. had a keypad lock however there was no information to tell you that you didn't need a code to get in. The Queens Head pub in the village close by to the site, is well worth a visit.

Pod was large and clean, in a peaceful location. The facilities were very clean and nice also. Staff encountered were helpful and friendly. Some suggestions for improvements would be to have more privacy in the outdoor space of the pod. It would be ideal to have more solid fencing around the bench area or more foliage.Some of my family were in FP1 which was a garden pod and advertised to have an enclosed garden area, however this was not the case so the dogs could not be let off the lead in there as thought. A sliding gate would be ideal to cover the entrance/car parking space.

This is our 3rd time at Sumners Pond and we love it whatever the weather.Great walks available around the lakes, excellent cafe/ restaurant on site.Facilities are always clean and staff are friendly and helpful.Lovely pub just a short walk down the road, food excellent and reasonably priced. Well stocked village store on the way to the pub with lovely home cooked quiches and pies available.Bus service not good but we aren't looking to go far so once motorhome is parked up it's time to relax and enjoy the view!
