Situated close to the peaceful town of Haltwhistle, Northumberland, Herding Hill Farm is an AA Platinum pennant, 5 star Wigwam, glamping and dog-friendly site. Located just a 10-minute walk from some of the most scenic and impressive sections of Hadrian's Wall and only a short distance from the Northumberland National Park. The AD122 Hadrian’s Wall bus stops at the site entrance between April and October and stops off at all the major attractions along the wall between Hexham and Haltwhistle.

Herding Hill Farm is ideal for star gazing and guests can enjoy the amazing Northumberland dark skies from outside their Wigwam Cabin. Stargazing kits available for hire.

Surrounded by the stunning Northumberland countryside, our Wigwam Cabins are ideal for a short break with a range of stunning walks and Roman attractions close by. For longer breaks the site is within an hour’s drive of the Lake District, Cumbrian coast, Scottish borders, Kielder Water and the beaches and castle of the Northumberland coast.

The “Centre of Britain” town of Haltwhistle is only 2 miles away and is a quaint place with many shops, pubs and cafes. There is also a small Sainsburys and Co-op.

There are a large selection of walks direct from the campsite and the Milecastle pub, a 10-minute walk, with a marvellous beer garden, serves home-cooked food and local Northumberland real ales.

The site is open all year round and our heated, timber Wigwam Cabins are perfect for any season. Herding Hill Farm operate a quiet site policy after 10.30pm.
