Friendly, helpful staff, brilliant facilities and brilliant location. Added bonus of dog exercise field and adorable animals.

Davidson, Helen - 03/07/2022

5

From the moment we arrived staff were lovely and really helpful. The site had a lovely relaxed feel. Great size plot and spotless facilities. Having somewhere to walk the dog off lead was brilliant and the views are amazing. Maybe only slight improvement would be somewhere outside to wash the dog after a walk if needed. The animals on site were a real added bonus. Lots to explore nearby, one warning is to avoid the really steep hill from Haltwhistle, we were not sure our old camper was going to make it, so would plan your route as there are other options. We loved this site and will definitely be back. Thank you to everyone on site who never stopped working and were always very friendly.

We had previously stayed at Herding Hill 5 years ago and we’re pleased to find the high standards have been maintained. Staff very helpful, friendly & always smiling. Facilities are immaculate and checked regularly throughout the day. Easy access to Hadrians Wall and great bus service which stops right at the gate.

Lovely Site Ruined by Air Pollution

Frances, Ruth - 01/07/2022

The site is beautifully located and has very good facilities. But our stay was spoilt by issues within the control of the owner. First, the parent in the next pitch gave 3 footballs to 4 young children who played football on all the adjacent pitches including ours. The father opposite allowed the children to use his car and tent as a goal. Needless to say the ball hit our motorhome and others. The site manager stopped them playing on the pitches after we reported the problem. However there is not a "No Ball Games" ground-rule mentioned in the information for guests and clearly other parents cannot be trusted to respect other people's property. Worse though is the air pollution caused by the fire-pits rented out by the site. All the neighbours had these lit 4-11pm. The smoke was incredible and we had to keep our doors and windows shut as we were choking. The smog defeats the point of going to this wild area and ruined our trip.

Rural area with access to Haltwistle and Roman ruins

Rayner, Stephen - 29/06/2022

5

This is a nice rural setting up the hill from Haltwistle, the centre of Britain. A bus goes by the gate which stops at several places of interest. It is possible to walk to the small town of Haltwistle (about half hour) but it is a big walk back up the hill. The managers were friendly and helpful. The facilities were kept clean.
