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.

Lotus belle


cleofish, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
We stayed for 2 nights in a lotus belle tent. These tents feel quite separate from the rest of the camp, as they are sort of separated by a high bank, and we only had one neighbour for one night. The views from these tents are the best in the camp. Wigwams are only looking at each other, whereas we had a great view of the sunset. The tent is spacious and you can stand up in it. It had a kettle and a toaster, a heater and a cool box. There are 3 plug sockets but due to a bit of a design flaw you can only use 2 at a time. It's definitely a family friendly place. Children played and wandered quite happily all around the camp, and people obviously felt safe there. The claimed commitment to silence after 11 is not really evident. The first night was perfectly quiet, but on the second there was a fairly loud hot tub party with music playing until at least 1am. I couldn't hear it from inside the tent, but probably more noticeable from the other wigwams. It's a short walk to Hadrian's wall, with a pub en route. Also fairly well placed if you want to drive further into Northumberland as we did. I'm not a camper so not well qualified to comment on facilities, but it seemed very clean and well maintained and well organised.

Left early...not for campers!


Cheryl_Carl_Aimee,
We stopped here on our way back from Scotland to break up the 9 hour journey and had booked 2 nights. On arrival we were given the only pitch left which was right next to the ladies toilets. We were explicitly told the tent had to be on the one side of a table so it was closer to the toilets. Our 15metre electricity wire wasn't long enough to reach so we had to borrow an extension leaving a deposit. Our pitch was the flatest pitch there; lots were on very uneven ground which we were initially very happy about as we didn't really want to fall out of bed in the middle of the night!! We paid to stop at this site after researching which sites had saunas or steam rooms and were along our route home. When we arrived we were told the sauna was not working...one of the only reasons we chose to stay! The site had lots of large families stopping whilst we were there. At half10 children were still playing football opposite and riding bikes on gravel. Even when the noisy children went to bed several males felt it was appropriate to stay up talking most of the night. My biggest annoyance was where our pitch was... There was a very bright light on the outside of the ladies toilets which meant going to sleep in a tent just outside was impossible unless you're 2 and still sleep with a light on. Every time someone went to the toilet you heard them walk past on the noisy gravel, open the door which slammed shut and then hear the very noisy hand drier which stayed on for 19 seconds each time someone used it. When the door was open you could also hear the extremely loud radio that played in there all night. At about midnight I went in the toilet to close all the windows to try to block out some of the sound. I also tried to figure out a way to block open the door to stop it slamming shut each time but with no joy. In the morning I went to the toilet but there was no toilet roll so had to go back to tent and get my own. Despite paying for 2 days we packed up early the following morning and drove home. There was no-one in reception to ask for a refund. Really wish I hadn't wasted my money; money that I could have spent on my daughter! If you're planning on camping here (like sleeping in the dark, in a quiet site, on level ground), I suggest you keep looking.

Very noisy camping experience


CLAIRELT, UK
The site was in an excellent position and was clean. The animals on site were lovely for families with children to enjoy. However if you are in a tent, the pitches are too close together and near to the gravel road, which isn't the quietest of surfaces when other visitors return to base late into the evening. During our stay there were three camping groups obviously together opposite us. The three families were so noisy, with loud music and when at last the children went to bed the adults carried on until very late without being asked to respect those camping around them. The resident pet pig housed behind the tent area is aloud snorer which is funny unless you are trying to get to sleep. So with gravel, revellers and a snoring pig it wasn't exactly a calm peaceful evening. Watch out for extra charges e.g. Wifi, sauna, BBQ area (you can't use your own BBQ but can hire one), laundry room. This site is set up for glamping and this is the main reason that the owners have lost touch with people who enjoy holidays in tents!

Herding Hill Farm, Luxury 5 Star Caravan, Camping & Glamping Site replied: Hello, first of all thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do wish every guest would leave reviews. Please may I comment on the points? We only have five 8m x 6m and five 6m x 4m tent pitches that all have electric hook up. We do have a small overflow area that is to accommodate any guests that arrive without booking. We are sure you were staying on the overflow area. Our site is within the Hadrian's Wall corridor just on the border of the National Park so we weren't able to have tarmac roads. We are a 5 star site and are proud of our reputation for quality of facilities and the friendliness of our team to ensure everyone has a stress free relaxing time. We have a policy of not allowing more than 3 families staying together. If we agree to anymore than this we take a noise bond. We do late night walks around site up to 11pm to ensure everyone is nice and quiet. I've spoken to our team who weren't aware of any excessive noise during your stay. You could of course made one of our team members aware of your concerns. Bubble our pig who is such a friendly chap and spends most of his time eating and sleeping but we have noticed his snoring has become loud on certain nights so we will nip to boots the chemist in Haltwhistle to buy a clip for his nose ;-) Maybe this is due to him been too relaxed and stress free! The charges you refer to are pretty standard across most campsites but anyone can use there own BBQ as long as they are off the grass. We have many different accommodation options for guests to experience and I can certainly say that we haven't lost touch with any aspects of what we offer, as a family we still go camping ourselves. What we have noticed is that more and more sites are no longer accepting tents.

Best short family break ever!


Cate H, Ayrshire, United Kingdom
Fantastic break, we had kids dog and a hot tub! Easy walk to Haltwhistle, Plenty to do in Northumbria too! Camp was nice and quiet although appeared nearly full, hottub area felt private enough. Shower block was spotless and very high end for a camp site. Staff helpful and always someone around to give advice, dogs welcome. Will return.

Herding Hill Farm, Luxury 5 Star Caravan, Camping & Glamping Site replied: Hello, many thanks for taking the time to leaving a review and are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Happy campers is what we like to see.

Treat to the wigwam


Stampykayleigh,
Lovely quiet site very close to the wall and the a69. With a small number of animals that are feed twice a day by one of the site staff guest welcome to follow and take part. Large park for the kids. Toilet block is located in the centre. We normaly camp but had a treat and got a wigwam for 2 nights. Hired a fire pit for the first night but as with British summers it rained. We were allowed to keep this for the second night which started wet but dryed in the evening. The staff were great always happy to help with any questions.

Herding Hill Farm, Luxury 5 Star Caravan, Camping & Glamping Site replied: Thank you for your review, our location is perfect, we are 3 miles from the A69 and only one mile from Hadrians Wall with a pub halfway too. Guests love our pet animals and feeding time is very popular. We have a great team working with us who work extremely hard!
