Overview

Herding Hill Farm is an award-winning 5-star caravan, camping and glamping site located in an idyllic spot above the small market town of Haltwhistle and just 1-mile from Hadrian's Wall. 

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, offer free site wide Wi-Fi and have a state of the art amenity block with underfloor heating, solar panels, a unisex sauna (free to use between 6pm and 8pm), drying room, laundry room, covered washing up area, family/accessible bathroom (with bath tub) and 2 further bath tubs in the Ladies'.

Our campsite welcomes touring caravans, motorhomes and guests wanting to camp or glamp! We have 13 (9m x 9m Caravan Club spec) hardstanding pitches with 16A electric hook ups, including 3 super pitches, 8 premier electric grass pitches for tents or caravans, 17 all-season wooden heated Wigwam cabins/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 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. 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 with freshly prepared homemade pizzas, using only top quality ingredients, which we deliver to your pitch. (Times vary over the year so take a look at our website or Facebook page).

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.

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.

A Lovely Surprise


DorsetDiver, Yeovil, United Kingdom
Our booking was somewhat last minute but from the moment we made contact we were treated to the very best customer service. On arrival the wardens were super helpful and all was ready for us. The pitch was pristine and the facilities are top class. My wife is not a lover of showers so really appreciated the full private bathrooms with nice large baths. The location could not be better for visits to Hadrian's wall and the forts, etc. along it. The "Hadrian's Wall Bus" passes the entrance to the site frequently making visits very easy. Herding Hill Farm is definitely one of the best UK site we have ever used.

cold may BH didnt dampen our spirits


naomiwarren74, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We were 5 families who stayed mostly in the wigwams for the weekend. we were so pleased for the heaters which kept us cosy on a cold weekend. overall the whole site was fantastic. Showers were very clean and warm. the wigwams were spacious with kettle, little fridge and microwave. beds were very comfortable and it was great to have en suite toilet. would highly recommend the hot tub... ours had a lot of use that weekend. we had pizzas on one night and hired the BBQ hut on another - coals and utensils provided made it all very easy. great walking near by too and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. will definitely be going back again next year.

Loved every minute! Highly recommend


ajtravelsx,
Me and two of my friends stayed in the running water wigwam with the hot tub for one night. We were greeted on arrival by Sue who was the new owner, she was lovely and very welcoming. The wigwam was spotless it looked brand new and the hot tub too!! I have recommended to my friends and family. I will definitely be back

This is a stunningly beautiful site with first class facilities and the staff could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay. There is limitless hot water, a sauna, hot tubs and a shop! The accommodation was cosy and very well fitted out.

Weekend get together


Helen7500, United Kingdom
We had a brilliant get together at this campsite. We were 5 families with children between 10y and 14y and this site was great. We all enjoyed the hot tubs and the sauna and the wigwams were warm with comfortable beds. We had the running water wigwams which were fab as they had a washing up sink and a toilet/washbasin. We did the walks suggested by Sue, the warden, down to the burn and across to Cawfields and had a nice trip to The Sill on a rainy day with a great pub lunch at Twice Brewed pub that was just next door (who gave us the Tap room for our group of 21 plus dog). The BBQ hut was really well equipped and toasty warm and was well worth hiring. All in all in was a great weekend with brilliant accommodation/campsite/facilities and there was plenty to do to keep everyone happy.
