Recognised with a 5 AA Platinum Pennant and a 5-star rating from Visit England, Herding Hill Farm caters to campers, glampers, and touring enthusiasts alike.

The campsite boasts a prime location, offering easy access to the historic Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage Site since 1987. The Wall and its surroundings provide a breathtaking backdrop for outdoor enthusiasts, promising hours and days of unforgettable exploration. Families with children of all ages will find the area rich in attractions, with stunning views and natural wilderness to inspire the adventurer in everyone.

Accommodation options at Herding Hill are diverse, welcoming tents, touring vehicles, and those seeking a touch of luxury in glamping pods, wigwam cabins or a luxury lodge, complete with outdoor hot tub.

The campsite's amenities building is a testament to its commitment to comfort. The luxury 5-star facilities include under-floor heating, ensuring a cosy atmosphere regardless of the weather. Free hot power showers and toilets are available in both men's and ladies' facilities, with the latter featuring two baths, perfect for a relaxing soak after a day of exploring Hadrian's Wall. Families can also enjoy the convenience of a private family bathroom/shower room, equipped with a bathtub, shower, WC, and baby change.

For those seeking relaxation, an 8-person unisex sauna is tucked away in a private corner of the amenities building, available for exclusive use at a nominal fee. Additionally, an indoor information and camper's kitchen area provides campers and glampers the flexibility to prepare meals indoors when the Northumberland weather is less forgiving. The space includes sinks, a kettle, a microwave, tables, chairs, and vending machines for hot drinks and confectionery.

Laundry needs are met with an extended laundry room featuring coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers, available for a small fee. An indoor Elsan waste disposal point and a dedicated hot water dog wash, new for 2023, enhance the convenience for campers and their furry friends.

Families with young children will appreciate the large, enclosed play area, complete with a fort, toddler's pirate ship, disc swing, and safety-enhancing play bark. The focus on safety extends to the petting farm, where campers can interact with rabbits, guinea pigs, alpacas, a donkey, goats, a Shetland pony, and piglets, fostering a sense of connection to the campsite's friendly animal residents.

A licensed shop on-site stocks a selection of local produce and convenience items, including personal hygiene products, local ales, wine, ice cream, confectionery, and BBQ meat packs.

Connectivity is not forgotten at Herding Hill, with free Wi-Fi available throughout the campsite. Despite the rural location, recent upgrades and strategically placed masts enhance the quality of the internet connection, though guests should be mindful of potential variability in broadband speed, especially during peak occupancy.

Peaceful retreat with fab add-ons

Massey, Anna - 18/05/2024

We stayed here for a few nights with the kids. The glamping pod was a real treat. The mattrasses were comfy and easy to put up/away each morning. The campfire and pizzas were a great touch and the view amazing. The kids loved the playground and it was quiet in the evenings as promised.

Really quite camping site, beautiful views with 2 very easy walks from the campsite. Very clean and all the staff were very friendly.The only pub in walking distance from the site is the Milecastle Inn, they serve excellent food. Dogs are not allowed inside but are more than welcome in the beer garden.

Great stay

Carr, Chloe - 16/05/2024

Love the option to do 1 night stays. Hot tub was great, service was great and great to have option to hire a fire too. Reception is full of info about the local area including local takeaways/delivery options available. Would be great for more options of drink at reception as well as providing some basic crockery in the glamping pods. Appreciate it does state it isn’t provided but think would be a helpful addition. Thanks for the stay.

First time in a wigwam, will certainly do this again!

Forrest, Julie - 16/05/2024

My first visit to Herding Hill. Lovely site, tidy, clean and spacious. Loved the amenities block for my morning shower, best I've ever used at any campsite. Really enjoyed staying in the wigwam, glad I got the one with a toilet and sink. I took a few things to make it homely in the evenings and it was so cosy. Really like this place and I'm sure I'll be back.

It is a lovely quiet site with pleasant wardens. The shower/bath block and Kitchen/Tearoom are very well designed and equiped. Bus stop at entrance to site providing an excellent way of having a day out at nearby Vindalanda and Sill without having to drive.Very fortunate to have seen the Aurora Borealis whilst there. Enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night.👌
