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.

Lovely campsite in stunning setting


Arabelladsk,
Visited Herding Hill farm earlier this month on the return leg of a journey up to Scotland from the south west. My husband had hurt his back by this point and the managers could not have been more helpful. They ferried us around the site on buggies, gave us a choice of excellent pitches, and even offered to help me put up the tent! In the end we plumped for the pitch next to the toilets which was no problem at all. The pitch fees are pricey but given the excellent facilities (amazing showers and underfloor heating in the toilets!) it is worth it if you like your comfort. Excellent location near to Hadrian’s wall and great pub (the Milecastle) within walking distance. Highly recommended!

Just what we needed - a rest


ThommoWigan, Wigan
Stayed here as a family of 5 July 2018. A lovely site, well laid out and immaculate. Animals are really lovely and great for kids, but the park made the kids week, a lot of time spent making new friends there and very safe to leave kids to their own devices. We stayed in the lodge which was amazing, we could easily live there. The hot tub was a fabulous addition and we were in it every day, evening in the rain! Staff lovely and helpful, nothing too much trouble. The pizzas are a must, delivered hot to the door of wherever you are staying, there wasn't a slice left. All in all a brilliant week. We booked here for some rest due to stressful jobs and that is what we got. We ate out locally at both Red Fort and Milecastle 42 and can recommend both of these places. Shops very close in town centre, everything you need really. We will be back. Thanks

Good site in a great location


WindsurferAndy, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
We stayed here for four nights as a base for walking on Hadrian’s Wall and enjoyed the experience. The site is about one mile north of Haltwhistle, towards the Wall in a very scenic location with long views west. The staff were very friendly and helpful so got us settled quickly. The site has three areas really as you move further into it. 1: The entrance and parking next to the little farm area and playground. 2: The pitch area for temporary campers. 3: The permanent lodges. The good points: Very clean and tidy amenities block with good showers. Lots of animals (we loved the donkeys braying) and the sheep baa echo across the adjoining fields in the morning. Fantastic views. Pizza delivery on certain evenings. Good geographic location so it was only 15 minutes walk downhill via the burn into Haltwhistle, a five minutes walk up to the Milecastle Inn and 15 minutes up to Cawfield Crags on the Wall. The not-so-good point: Our pitch for the tent was not generally flat. The slope was enough for a cup to slide from one side of the table to the other (!) so you have to watch things most of the time. Other pitches looked flatter so we were just a bit unlucky.

May bank holiday camp trip.


kitten80, blyth northumberland
Lovely camp and caravan site, the owners are very friendly and helpful, There is a good play area for the kids, also animals that they can help feed. On certain nights they do pizza that you can order and they will deliver to your unit. On the down side it is quite exposed and the site is quite windy,,, strong ground pegs are needed.

Friendly & great facilities


lotrrulzu, London, United Kingdom
Really enjoyed staying again in one of the wigwams on the site. We hired a firepit on the first night and found a bag of logs lasted us about 2 hours. We were glad that we could use a portable BBQ for our dinner. Crock box hire was very useful. Toilets and washing facilities were beautifully clean. Site workers so friendly and accommodating. Had some excellent walks along the wall and the various sites. Dinner at the Milecastle Inn was excellent. Only negative was that some children were playing ball against their wigwams which made a banging noise. The ball went under our accommodation a number of times. We like children but also wanted our own space. Perhaps they could have a separate football area or no ball games near the bedrooms?
