Great stay

Gant, Elizabeth - 26/01/2023

We received a warm welcome upon arrival. Our pod was as described and was very clean and well maintained. The heater was more than adequate for our stay despite it being very cold outside. The facilities were great, our children loved feeding the animals and though we didn't get chance to use it, the play park looked great. We had a good nights sleep, the site was very quiet. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Another fantastic new year. Family friendly. Immaculate facilities.

Nolan, Rachel - 17/01/2023

We have stayed at Herding Hill ovwr new year for the past 5 years (except during COVID 2020 when it was closed) and every time it's been great.All the staff are welcoming, friendly and provide excellent service whilst allowing you as much privacy as you want / need. The facilities are the best we have experienced in terms of cleanliness, as clean as a hotel and with all you could need for a glamping / camping trip. The pods are warm and cosy - we always book one with a toilet and running water which is basically self contained (sink, hot and cold water, toilet with sink in separate room, fridge, toaster, kettle, heater and plugs for devices).This year was our first with our new baby (6 months) and we had everything we needed still. Family friendly atmosphere and it's a beautiful location for dog walks (plenty of dog bins around the site and it's pet friendly) or exploring Hadrian's wall. It's also a brilliant place to stargaze (and 2024 is a good year for the northern l

We were please at how clean and well kept the whole site was. Toilets and showers were immaculate. Very friendly man on arrival who invited us to feed the animals in the morning as we had a child in our party, she really enjoyed feeding all the animals. We have rebooked for may already and invited more family to join. The location is brilliant too, perfect for walks and close to a nice pub. Brilliant team there and amazing facilities

New Year Getaway

Pickering, Darryl - 06/01/2023

5

Friendly staff and a great site with immaculate facilities. Excellent dog walking area. They put on drinks and nibbles on New Years Eve which was nice. Close by (about 1 mile) to Haltwhistle with a few good pubs and plenty of local amenities, but a steep up hill walk if you don't want to drive down to the village. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic stay!!

Hemmings, Martin - 06/01/2023

The pod is immaculate and has everything anyone would need to enjoy their stay. It was cold and wet weather throughout our stay, however we were 'snug as bugs' with the underfloor heating and the log burner which is really efficient and easy to use. The views are fantastic and a real pleasure to wake up to.The Wardens were all very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The local town is only a mile away and has everything you need with a Sainsburys, Co-op, a number of pubs all serving food and dog friendly. Fish and chip shops with one delivering to the site. There is also an Indian, Chinese and a selection of cafes.Just up the road from the site is a lovely pub serving great food and a selection of ales and ciders. It is approx. a 10 minute walk and well worth a visit.All in all, we had a great stay and will definitely be visiting again.
