Herding Hill Farm is a dog and family friendly AA award-winning, 5-star camping and glamping site with outdoor hot tubs, nestled in an idyllic spot above the small market town of Haltwhistle and just 1-mile from Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland.
We were highly commended in the 2020 North East England Tourism Awards.
Stargazing is plentiful here and we are a Dark Sky Friendly Park. The Northumberland International Dark Skies Park at Cawfields Quarry on Hadrian's Wall is just 15-minutes' walk but on clear nights you can enjoy the dark skies on site from your own private outdoor hot tub or the comfort of your own pitch. We even offer star gazing kits for hire.
Family friendly and dog friendly, our campsite features a timber roman fort children's playground, a petting farm and dog walking area. Our resident animals include 3 alpacas, a Kunekune pig, donkey, 2 goats, a miniature Shetland pony, hens, ducks, guinea pigs and rabbits.
We are open all year apart from a small closure in January and have a luxurious amenities building 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 within the Ladies' shower and toilet facilities.
Our campsite welcomes touring caravans, motorhomes/campervans, tents, backpackers and guests wanting to glamp in one of our wooden Wigwam cabins or luxury lodge. 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 grass pitches with 10A electric, 17 all-season heated Wigwam cabins (3 large Big Chief 4/5 berth (one with private outdoor hot tub), 10 Running Water 4/5 berth with en-suite; 7 with private outdoor hot tubs and 4 Wee Brave 2/4 berth).
If you're looking for something more luxurious, we also have a luxury self-catering holiday lodge with private outdoor hot tub, which sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms (1 double ensuite, 1 double and 1 twin).
New for 2020 we also have two glossy VW T6 converted camper vans for hire if you want to explore further afield.
Our on-site shop is licensed to sell alcoholic drinks and we stock a wide variety of local beers. We also serve freshly prepared homemade pizzas most Friday evenings from 6pm to 7.30pm (between Good Friday and late September). During busy periods they are also available on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evenings. These are delivered directly to your pitch. Unfortunately we are unable to offer pizzas currently until Covid restrictions are lifted.
We also have a BBQ Hut for hire, which accommodates up to 20 people, perfect for getting all the family/friends under one roof if the weather turns wet or windy! We also offer fire pits for hire at both our glamping pods and touring pitches.
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. Please note that due to Covid restrictions the pub may not be open. Haltwhistle Leisure Centre and outdoor Swimming Pool is just over a mile away but is currently closed due to Covid.
