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 Safari Tent, Swallow's Hide, is 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.
