Herding Hill Farm, Luxury 5 Star Caravan, Camping & Glamping Site

Overview

Overview

Herding Hill Farm is an AA award-winning, 5-star touring, camping and glamping site with hot tubs, nestled in an idyllic spot above the small market town of Haltwhistle and just 1-mile from Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. 

Stargazing is plentiful here. The International Dark Skies Park at Cawfields Quarry on Hadrian's Wall is just a 15-minutes' walk. Imagine relaxing in one of our hot tubs at night and gazing up at the stars!  

Family friendly and dog friendly, our campsite features a fabulous children's timber roman fort playground, a petting farm and dog walking area. Our resident animals include 3 alpacas, a Kunekune pig, 2 donkeys, 2 goats, a miniature Shetland pony, hens, ducks and rabbits.

We are open all year and have a state of the art amenity block with underfloor heating, a unisex sauna, drying room, laundry room, covered washing up area, family/accessible bathroom (with bath tub and baby change) and 2 further bath tubs accompany the shower and toilet facilities within the Ladies'.

Our campsite welcomes touring caravans, motorhomes, campervans and guests wanting to camp or glamp! We have 13 (9m x 9m Caravan Club spec) hardstanding pitches with 16A electric hook ups (3 of which are fully serviced with fresh water, waste and electric), 8 premier electric grass pitches for tents or caravans, 17 all-season wooden heated Wigwam cabins / camping pods (3 large Big Chief 4/5 berth, 10 Running Water 4/5 berth with en-suite and hot tubs and 4 Wee Brave 2/3 berth). Our Wigwam cabin occupants have the option of hiring one of our firepits.

If you're looking for something more luxurious, we also have our luxury retreat timber holiday lodge with private hot tub, which sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms.

In the warmer months, our glamping village comes to life with 3 Tentipi Tents & 4 Lotus Belle Tents, located in a private part of the site that has amazing views out over the valley. This area has a communal gathering area and a wildlife pond.

Our on-site shop is licensed to sell alcoholic drinks. We also hold pizza nights on Fridays and Saturdays during our busier months, with freshly prepared homemade pizzas delivered directly to your pitch. (Times vary over the year so take a look at our website or Facebook page or give us a call).

If you fancy a short stroll to the local, we're fortunate to also have a nice country pub just half a mile from us towards Hadrian's Wall. Haltwhistle Leisure Centre and Outdoor Swimming Pool is just over a mile away.

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 approx. 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

The AD122 Hadrian's Wall bus stops outside our gates. This runs between Hexham and Haltwhistle usually between March and 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.
