Excellent experience

Collman, Karen - 23/09/2022

I visited Herding Hill farm with 3 adult family members and 2 dogs. The staff from arrival to check out were extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable, from the animals on site to local amenities and places of interest. The site is immaculate with plenty to do for all ages. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the hot-tub was a dream. The location is extremely convenient for nearby Haltwhistle and visiting different areas of interest. I cannot fault the whole experience.

Lovely site

Hulme, Wendy - 22/09/2022

Excellent campsite in a beautiful part of the UK. I stayed in a camping pod whilst the rest of the group were staying in their motorhomes. Site was very well maintained and staff very helpful. I had booked the party pack and my pod was decorated on arrival with fairy lights, bunting and balloons. It made our birthday "party" extra special. We took advantage of the freshly made pizzas which were delicious!Had a wonderful stay.

Perfect small campsite

Bales, Caroline - 22/09/2022

I cannot praise herding hill farm campsite enough. I stayed with my children and it was perfect for us. The staff were so friendly and engaging, the facilities were the cleanest I’ve ever known on a campsite. The pitches were well kept, spacious and clean.There was a small park but with enough sage and well kept equipment to entertain the children plus there were well looked after farm animals to meet! We have a dog and the field available to walk through had loads of space and the view was gorgeous.The whole site is actually quite small but doesn’t feel cramped and there is plenty of amazing walks to go on in the area. The owners here have clearly put so much effort into making a beautiful well run site.

Absolutely lovely site. Quality of the amenties block outstanding. Staff very welcoming and very helpful when we needed local knowledge. Animals on site a nice feature. Stunning location. Very steep hill down into Haltwhistle, would not advise towing up it. Town handy tho for shops and meals. The Milecastle Inn near the site, very friendly with nice food. A lot to see in the area. So near to Hadrians Wall, will fefinitely be back to explore more.

The hosts with the most

Griffiths, Sian - 20/09/2022

My third visit this year; started with the smallest pod for an impromptu camping trip in February (warm and toasty, excellent shower block and communal room, best I've ever seen). Then treated myself to two stays in the amazing Castle pods. I stay Monday - Friday out of season and the value for money is unbelievable. Everything you need to either stay in and recharge your batteries, or have days out going back to superb comfort.Phil and Sue ensure that the site is peaceful and they are so friendly whilst respecting your privacy. Jason and Angie are part of their accommodating team who can't do enough for you.Easy to find but out of the way, close to Haltwhistle for supplies, and so much beautiful walking on your doorstep. An excellent Base for Hadrians Wall. I've booked my treat again for next year.I can't recommend enough.Thank you Team Herding Hill 😁
