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.

Wonderful place

Karl-Johnson, Gabriella - 06/07/2024

We loved our stay at Herding Hill Farm so much and we are already eager to return. We were visiting the area from the United States on a longer trip around England, so we did not have the typical gear with us, but this is no problem. We booked a bedding package, a grill, etc, which all worked out well for us, and when we realized we’d neglected to bring towels, a very helpful staff member rustled up a few for us. We pre-ordered a few grilling meat packages (including the breakfast kit), all of which were delicious and we highly recommend. The setting is wonderful, and there were plenty of kids for ours to play with. The amenities are great - everything is spotlessly clean in the common building. Haltwhistle is a quick drive away for groceries at Sainsburys or fish and chips takeaway, and numerous major areas of interest along Hadrian’s Wall are within close range via car or bus. The sheep and lambs on the hillside behind our cabin were delightful. We loved this place. Thank you.

Glamping at Herding hill

Tait, Diana - 06/07/2024

1st class campsite. Small but with facilities to match a bigger site, and so clean. Love the fact everything gets recycled too. Communication was excellent throughout, although not sure why I couldn't book a longer break online. Phone Communication was no trouble though. Site was brilliant for local bus transportation to start of walks or for visitor centres if that's your choice. Think maybe milk, eggs, fresh produce would have been useful but Haltwhistle only a few mins away for provisions. Cannot fault this gem of a site. Loved our weeks stay in a pod. Such a friendly place but also nobody bothered you. Loved it all.

Grey campsite

Friel, Chris - 06/07/2024

We loved our stay. It’s a beautiful site and we had a terrific time. Toilets were spotless and the people who run the site were terrific and very accommodating.If I was to change two things it would be this.My children said it’s not there number 1 site because they felt the park could be a little better - perhaps having a few swings and some more apparatus.The second thing is I would run the pizzas on a Fri and Sat. And importantly I would make them with home made bases. I recommend getting a couple of gas Oonis and you’ll be able to rattle out incredible pizzas with home made pizza dough.However, this is an incredible 5 star campsite and we had a brilliant 4 night stay in our tent.

Upon arrival we were greeted and welcomed and made to feel very welcome, the pitch size was large and very clean, the whole site was very clean and neat, the toilet and shower block were amazing with underfloor heating in the showers, and very clean. With such a nice site it was hard to go see other attractions, lovely couple and lovely site.

The perfect weekend away

Dillon, Rachel - 04/07/2024

We had the most gorgeous weekend away in the Herding Hill Castle Pod.I hadn’t heard of them before but stumbled across them, and booked one of their castle pods with the hot tub for a short weekend break for my husband and I.Wow. It was stunning. The guys were so friendly, the pod was super clean and modern, the hot tub was a gorgeous treat and the whole site was beautifully maintained - lots of space to walk our dog, Juno, and some great walks close by.Thank you so much for having us! We can’t wait to come back!

Got there just before 3 was shown to our pod and given a quick safety brief. Haltwhistle is a very nice place as is the Mile Castle Inn about half a mile away. The campsite was very clean and very quiet at night the pod was clean and the hot tub was great we u see d it both nights.

Beautiful, immaculate camp site.

Slater, Louise - 04/07/2024

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights at the end of June in a Wigwam with running water and a hot tub. From the moment we got there everything was amazing. We had a tiny mix up in added extras id booked via email but it was all sorted immediately with fantastic customer service and was a non issue. The wigwam itself was immaculate, no scuffs or marks as previous wigwams where I've stayed elsewhere. Everything was lovely including the hot tub, which was private from passers by. The communal facilities were so clean and well presented that it was quite a surprise. I've been to many communal facilities due to having a touring caravan as a child, and these were far beyond anything I'd encountered. The radio playing in the toilet block is a lovely little touch when having a shower. I have zero hesitation is recommending the site to others. To be honest I already have. My photos on Facebook have had a lot of friends wanting to know where there camp site is. I will be back. It's worth every£

Another fantastic stay

Parkin, Mhairi - 04/07/2024

This was our second stay at the site. The first visit we had our microcamper but this time we chose to stay in a wigwam. The facilities inside were great, we had a fridge, kettle, toaster and toilet! It was also really roomy which was perfect for our 5 month olds travel cot and our two dogs. We loved our stay and the staff onsite were extremely helpful and accommodating. Thank you.
