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.

Great weekend!


Loveholidays485, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Me, my Fiancé & our dog (Staffie) have just got home today from a great weekend here at herding hill farm. We stayed in a running water wig wam with hot tub (sycamores gap) & we could not complain. The facilities are very good & the shower block is immaculate. The campsite is in great location for walks along Hadrian's Wall. There is a pub/restaurant only half a mile down the road called the mile castle.. Although this is not dog friendly inside there is a nice beer garden. We can't recommend the black Bull pub in Haltwhistle enough if you would like to take your dog out with you.. The staff there are very kind & welcoming, lots of real ales to try & amazing food. We walked into Haltwhistle via the burn which takes around 30 mins and we also used Diamond Taxi service which was great at only £6. We can't wait to come back to herding hill, great atmosphere seeing families enjoying time together, kids playing & happy dogs!! The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you for a great stay... We will see you's again soon :)

Rather austere but excellent facilities


Lucyaspinall, Petersfield, United Kingdom
We stayed one night with a small camper van. The campsite is fairly isolated but there is a pub down the road and Haltwhistle with plenty of amenities and shopping for food etc is not that far off. The other advantage is you are very near the excellent Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda. The facilities were great - very clean, good showers and the rather novel experience of having Radio 2 piped into the shower block. The site feels rather austere - not least because of the surroundings which are beautiful but verging on the bleak in that part of the world - and the unfortunate ( in my opinion) use of industrial grey chipping for hardstanding. But then we were there on a grey evening and it might be a different impression in the summer sun.

Looking forward to next visit!


,
First time glamping with family. Had running water wigwam - couldn't fault it. Really warm & cosy, clean with good facilities, well positioned, good open grassy area in between rows of wigwams where all kids played together - good spot for kite flying. Shower block / communal facilities immaculate. Family friendly site. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Perfect place to stay for doing all the big Roman forts in one weekend. Haltwhistle open air pool worth a visit. Going to return with bigger party next year and make use of the barbecue hut!

good bell tent for family


Brian J, London, United Kingdom
We spent the weekend in one of the bell tents which whilst having only four beds they are happy for an extra child to stay and there is plenty of room. These are great tents but from some reason they bought the cheapest cool boxes going which really lets them down. The toilet/shower block has not been expanded to keep up with the expansion of the site resulting in queues for showers at peak times.

Lovely site let down by customer service


NixxTeesside, Teesside
Things didn't start off well when we arrived at 2.30pm (website said check-in from 2-8pm) to find a note on the door saying check in from 3pm so had to hang around for half an hour. We had booked the ensuite wigwam with a hot tub through Wigwam Holidays and the owner went through the safety instructions for using hot tubs and gave us a leaflet to read. We then drove down to the wigwam only to find no hot tub! One of our party went back to the office and the owner said there was a problem with the booking system and there was no hot tub available for us and he would call down to see us about it. We sat around for over half an hour and didn't unpack as we thought we would be moving to a wigwam with a hot tub but there was no sign of the owner. I called back up to the office and the owner said it was a problem with Wigwam Holidays website, which shouldn't have have let me book what I had booked. He showed me the print off of the booking which had hot tub specified on it and said this had only been noticed that morning and there were no hot tubs available for our 3 night stay. I asked why he'd given me all the safety instructions etc and then given me a key for a wigwam without one. He replied that some were new and he wasn't sure which had hot tubs and which didn't - there aren't that many on the site! He then said he was looking into a couple of options to give us a hot tub - but I'm still waiting for him to come back to us on this! We had to chase them every day to see what was happening - they made no effort to come and see us to try and make up for the mess up with the booking. It was almost like as they said it was Wigwam Holidays fault, then it wasn't their problem! We finally managed to get the use of a hot tub on two nights but it wasn't the same as it wasn't next to our wigwam where we could relax and keep an eye on the kids. We also booked the camp fire kit for the three nights when we arrived, which they also forgot about and then said they weren't sure they had enough for all the nights of our stay! They then delivered one kit with firelighters but no matches and barely enough wood to keep the fire going for the evening. We got no further wood delivered for the rest of our stay, but by this point I was fed up with their apathy towards us and just bought my own wood. The biggest laugh is how much they point out that as this is such a lovely site that no stress is allowed! They created all the stress in this case!! All in all, it is a lovely campsite with breathtaking scenery and good facilities but they need to get better at dealing with problems for their customers. We wouldn't return and would't recommend it either, which is a shame.
