Herding Hill Farm Touring & Camping Site
“Glorious moorland location close to Hadrian's Wall” - AA Inspector

We have closed our tent pitches for the season to minimise numbers in the amenity block. Our site has pre-defined pitches which far exceed any social distancing requirements. We have closed all common areas such as sauna, playpark and animal petting farm. We will not be doing any food all season. Keys will be left in accommodation and guests asked to telephone on arrival to be given their pitch or cabin number to avoid the need to enter reception. We are promoting a shared guest responsibility to encourage them to note their own behaviours to help us make the site as safe as possible.
Our Inspector's view
In an idyllic moorland location above Haltwhistle, close to Hadrian's Wall, this beautifully developed working farm site is geared to families and offers a mix of accommodation − excellent tent pitches, quality hardstandings, a 6-berth lodge, and a glamping area. The upmarket amenity block is really ultra-modern − the internal red and grey partitioning really sets off the very high standard of fixtures and fittings, and the underfloor heating is very welcoming. A drying room, barbecues and fire baskets, a playground and petting farm, an excellent shop, and activities such as star-gazing, geocaching, and walking along Hadrian's Wall complete the package. This is a top-class site.

About the area
If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.
Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
