Another lovely long weekend at Sumners Ponds. We just love this place. Had a delicious lunch at the cafe. Try the fish and chips (yummy). Weather wasn't brilliant but that didn't spoil our stay. We will be back soon.

Have stayed here a few times and it is always amazing. Staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great. Showers are amazing and even have lovely music playing in them. The cafe is good and plenty of choice. Love this site

We came here partly due to the rave reviews. Well, we cannot understand why this place is so rated. The place was very busy and a different person seemed to serve us each time. None of the staff seemed to know what they were doing...More

Thank you for taking time to review our Café by the Lake at Sumners Ponds. Having looking into this matter, I understand the restaurant was full and you did not have a confirmed booking. Hence when you arrived there was not a table available. Despite...More

The setting is great for a country walk or just chill with beautiful views. There is a cosy cafe with log burners and homemade food - great cakes and hot chocolate!

We have booked pod 5 (next to the cafe) for the weekend and have just realised there will be live music on site 😬 Has anyone stayed in this pod when they have had music on and if so how noisy was it please? We have a 2 & 5 year old so feeling a bit anxious now!!
