Herding Hill Farm is a peaceful 5-star campsite close to Hadrian's Wall in beautiful Northumberland.

Featuring wooden wigwam cabins and luxury glamping pods, some with outdoor private hot tubs, and a luxury holiday lodge, the campsite also welcomes caravans, motorhomes, camper vans and tents.

Herding Hill Farm is a Dark Sky Friendly Park, perfect for stargazing. Nestled away from the road and with gorgeous views down the valley, the campsite is both family-friendly and dog-friendly with free Wi-Fi, spacious pitches all with electricity and a luxury amenities block with underfloor heating and a sauna available for private hire.

For caravans, camper vans and motorhomes, there are 13 spacious, level hard-standing pitches. Four of these are nine square metres in size with electric hook-up. The remaining nine are serviced pitches, and each has an electric hook-up, water connection and grey wastewater gully. There are also a number of six square metre, level, grass pitches with electric hook-ups that are great for tents. Each pitch is shielded by a small hedge allowing for privacy.

If you prefer glamping, choose from three different types of wooden wigwam cabins, some with hot tubs, all with electricity, a fridge, a kettle, a heater and a microwave, sleeping up to five people. They are double glazed with blackout blinds and very secure.

NEW for 2022 are 8 luxury glamping pods with hot tubs located in a quiet corner of the park with amazing views. They each have an en suite shower room, double bed, kitchen, small living area with smart TV and wood-burning stove plus a large outdoor furnished patio with hot tub. The Castle Pods sleep 2 adults and are not child or pet-friendly. One of the pods has been designed to be wheelchair accessible with a wet room.

Or stay in the spacious, timber-framed beautifully decorated holiday lodge, sleeping up to six people (maximum 4 adults), with an outdoor hot tub on the patio or to explore more of the Northumberland countryside and coast, hire one of the newly converted T6 VW camper vans from Herding Campers.

The facilities on-site at Herding Hill Farm are impressive. The luxury amenities block has underfloor heating, a family/accessible bathroom and there are even baths in the Ladies for those who want that extra level of pampering. There is also a unisex sauna available for private use.

For families, there's a lovely children's playground, as well as friendly animals to see including three gentle alpacas, Kune Kune piglets and a petting farm with rabbits, a donkey, a Shetland pony, guinea pigs and more. And that's not all - a BBQ hut is available for hire, accommodating up to 20 people. You can also hire a fire pit to stargaze, and in season, you can order homemade pizzas delivered directly to your pitch! There are also other optional extras such as BBQ meat packs, party and celebration packs, bedding and crockery boxes.

The site has an indoor camper’s kitchen with an information room and vending machines and an on-site shop selling local Northumberland produce and essentials.

This is a superb place to stay on your camping, motorhome or caravan holiday in Northumberland. Herding Hill Farm is less than half an hour by car to Hexham, about a 40-minute drive from Carlisle or Newcastle and within a 90-minute drive of the Kielder Forest Park, Northumberland coast, Scottish Borders, Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

Awarded 5-stars by both Visit England and the AA, Herding Hill Farm was recently highly commended in the North East Tourism Awards 2020. Book your stay today.
