Situated close to the peaceful town of Haltwhistle, Northumberland, Herding Hill Farm is a 5 star Wigwam, glamping and dog-freindly camping site. We're just a 10-minute walk from Hadrian's Wall and only a short distance from the Northumberland National Park. Guess can enjoy the amazing Northumberland dark skies from outside their Wigwam Cabin.

Surrounded by the stunning Northumberland countryside, our Wigwam Cabins are ideally close to the Lake District, the Cumbrian coast, Scottish borders and both the Northumberland and Kielder Forests. In addition to the natural scenery, the local area is dotted with historic landmarks and is famous for its Northumberland castles. We are located only 1 mile from the most dramatic section of Hadrian’s Wall at Cawfields Quarry with panoramic views,  and its reputation for dark skies making Herding Hill Farm the ideal campsite for stargazing. The “Centre of Britain” town of Haltwhistle is only 2 miles away and is a quaint little place with many shops, pubs and cafes. There is also a small Sainsburys and Co-op. Haltwhistle has a fabulous outdoor swimming pool with water slides which is really popular with our guests. There are a large selection of walks direct from the campsite and the Milecastle pub, serving food and local Northumberland ales, is a 10-minute walk.

Our site is open all year round and our heated, timber Wigwam Cabins are perfect for any season. Our luxury 5-star amenity block, complete with underfloor heating and sauna, is comparable to a 5-star hotel. It includes an indoor camper’s kitchen, drying room and laundry, disabled/family bathroom, shower facilities, toilets (the ladies' has two private bathrooms that have baths inside) & pot washing up area. There is also a sauna for private hire.

We have three different types of Wigwam Cabins on site, some of our Wigwam Cabins with hot tubs:

10 Running Water Wigwam Cabins with WC, sleeping up to 5 people each. 7 of these Wigwam Cabins have private outdoor hot tubs.

3 Big Chief Wigwam Cabins, sleeping up to five people each. 1 of these has its own private outdoor hot tub.

4 Wee Brave Wigwam Cabins, sleeping up to three people each.

Our site is also home to a petting farm with three alpacas, a donkey, miniature Shetland Pony, two Kune Kune piglets, goats and a small petting area with hens, ducks, geese. rabbits and guinea pigs, as well as a children's playrgound. In season we serve pizza to your Wigwam Cabin on a Friday evening.

It's just a great place to stay.
