Overview

Herding Hill Farm is a superb caravan, camping and glamping site in the shadow of Hadrians Wall.

We are only a 15 minutes walk from Cawfields Quarry on Hadrians Wall and the centre of Britian town of Haltwhistle. The site was brand new for 2012. We are open most of the year and have a state of art amenity block which has a sauna, drying room, laundry room, covered washing up area, family/accessible shower room and is underfloor heated along with solar panels. We have thirteen 9m x 9m "caravan club" spec hardstanding pitches with 16A electric hook up of which three are super pitches, 8 premier electric grass pitches for tents or caravans. We have fabulous wooden heated wigwam cabins/pods, three large 4/5 berth, ten 4/5 berth ensuite wigwams that have hot tubs and four 2/3 berth available to hire. We also have a luxury retreat holiday lodge that has three bedrooms and its own private hot tub. We have a fabulous Tentipi & Lotus Belle Tent glamping village. This is located in a private part of the site that has amazing views. This area has a communal gathering area and a wildlife pond. We have a site wide Wi-Fi system. Our onsite Shop is licensed to sell alcoholic drinks off the premises and we also prepare homemade pizzas using only top quality ingredients which we deliver to your pitch. (The times vary over the year so take a look at our website) Bring the children to meet our resident, alpacas, donkeys, miniture shetland pony, goats, pig, ducks & hens. Wigwams occupants have the option of hiring one of our firepits. We also have a fabulous childrens play area. We also have a nice country pub just half a mile from us towards Hadrians Wall.


Road directions

If you are towing a caravan please do not follow Sat Nav systems as this may take you up Shield Hill from Haltwhistle which is extremely steep for a caravan. Travelling from the east on the A69 continue past Haltwhistle and after around 3 miles you will see a right turn to Greenhead, after 100 meters turn right at the junction of the B6318 and after 3 miles you will then pick up our brown tourist signs at the Milecastle Inn. From the West also take the Greenhead turn off the A69.


Public transport

We have the AD122 Hadrians Wall bus that stops outside our gates. This runs between Hexham and Haltwhistle usually Marich to September but please check on the Go North East website. 

We are just 2 miles away from Haltwhistle railway station which is on the Newcastle to Carlisle line.

They took us in when our other lodge double booked us


Sue H, Denver, Colorado
We were visiting from the US and had booked and prepaid a different lodge. When we arrived at the other lodge at 8:00 pm, the owner told us they had double booked us and we had nowhere to go. We don't know the area, but the other owner called Herding Hill Farm to see if they had a vacancy in their apartment. Much to our relief, they did. Herding Hill quickly readied the apartment for us. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a living room, a kitchen, a large patio with a hot tub, and beautiful views. We enjoyed watching the donkeys, llamas, and sheep. Herding Hill management could not have been nicer. The apartment (really a house set just outside the camping area) is quite large and would be a great retreat for several families. Of course, being so close to Hadrian's Wall was a huge benefit for us. Although it was a bit of a drive, we visited Bamburgh castle and Lindisfarne on one of our days. We easily saw the main exhibits (Roman Army Museum, Vindolanda, and Housesteads Roman Fort) on the other day. Thank you for a memorable stay! We have fond memories of our 3 days in the beautiful northern part of England.

What a fantastic site.


Ken S, Oswestry, United Kingdom
Everything is good with regards to staying on this site. We stayed in our motorhome for three nights. The location is excellent, toilet block very good with the best showers ever. If you have children, they will love all of the animals. There is an excellent pub, serving nice meals, just 0.6 miles away. One of the best parts of Hadrian's Wall is just a mile away. Even the pizzas, delivered to your pitch, were good and also inexpensive. It really is an excellent site in every way - it puts some of the Caravan and Camping sites to shame, really.

Lovely for something a little different


Jennifer C,
This last weekend was our second stay at Herding Hill and this time we ended up in a Tipi. The area is beautiful and quiet, the accommodations are comfy and unique. The only slight drawback of the tipi village is that it's not sheltered at all from the strong winds that come up from the valley - one night we were kept awake for hours by the gusts, terrified the canvas was going to be swept away! The site is perfectly placed for some lovely walks, a handy local pub or two and the shops in the village. The showers are some of the best I've ever used at a campsite. Staff are super friendly and do their best to help out however they can. And the homemade pizzas are some of the best we've ever had!

Great places! Little hidden gem


Shyra B, Manchester
Great place, lovely staff. Nice little get away. Wigwams are spacious with everything you need inside! Will definitely be coming back. My advice would be to rent a croc box, as it is very useful and there are onsite sinks to clean all your pots. Onsite showers are also there and are kept clean.

Beautiful location!


Gillian R, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Stayed here for long weekend with my family. Pods are lovely and clean, showers/toilets absolutely spotless and showers spacious and modern. The surroundings and views are lovely including the small animal farm - great from the kids! Staff all very friendly and helpful! The only negative to herding hill which stopped me from giving it a full 5/5 and may make me look elsewhere is the sneaky extra charges. One card allowed at each pod - £5 per night for an extra car. Also you are not allowed to take your own fire pit - but they charge you £15 per night to use theirs.........for us this is a fundamental to outdoor holiday! sauna, bbq but etc all an extra charge too!
