We are a high-quality, 4 star (Visit Britain) accredited, family owned and run Touring Caravan, Campsite & Wigwam Site. We are situated in the Heart of Hadrians Wall Country.
Herding Hill Farm, Caravan, Camping, Bunkhouse & Wigwam Site
Our site was opened in 2011 and it is getting more & more popular. This we find is due to the high quality facilities and great location, we are just a short distance from the NCN 72 & 68,
Do you ever feel like getting away with a group of family or friends for a while, perhaps for a family reunion or anniversary? Well, our characterful bunkhouse sits in a beautiful country setting and is ideal for such events. It consists of two rooms with an adjoining door, each with ensuite facilities. We have a 9, 15 and two 4 bed bunkhouse rooms each ensuite. These are high quality and centrally heated which super comfortable washable breathable memory foam mattresses.
We also have a large communal lounge with a log burning stove, sofas, large plasma tv and dining tables and WC. We also have a self- service kitchen in this area with electric hob, microwave, kettle, sink and crockery/utensils.
Secure cycle storage available.
We can also offer breakfast rolls and pizzas as per the menus and times, as well as packed lunches.
Sleeping bag hire available too.
We have eight Wigwams. Three are ensuite with private outdoor hot tubs. We have recently added a luxury amenity block with underfloor heating, unisex sauna, private bathrooms, cycle store, drying room, laundry room and a combined disabled/family bathroom.
The Independant newspaper rate us one of the top 50 greatest British sites to stay at, and added that our "toilet and shower block would put many a hotel to shame".
We are the only site in the UK where you can hire one of the fabulous Tentipi® Nordic Tipis. Our tipis are for a true wild camping experience. They are located at the bottom of the campsite in a separate area.
Our Safir 8 tipi's can accommodate 4 comfortably. Each tent has the original stove that can be used but safety is paramount. Children must be supervised at all times due to the heat of the chimney and stove. We sell kindling and logs too.
The tipis are pre erected and have wooden floors.
We now have a 3 bedroom 45ft. by 22ft. timber-framed lodge, made in Cumbria. It is furnished to a high standard with all home comforts including plasma TV, DVD, free Wi-Fi and a great outdoor non slip decking area with a 5/6 person hot tub that is set to 38 degrees.
Takeaway Pizzas and breakfasts!
We serve homecooked Pizzas and breakfasts as a takeaway service.
Hadrian's wall bus stops at farm gates
The Sustrans Cycle Route 72 & 68 are within half a mile. The Hadrians Wall bus AD122 that runs (Easter to the end of October) between Carlisle & Newcastle stops right outside our gates so you can get full access to the area without taking the car.
We provide the perfect place for both day visitors to Hadrians Wall, Northumberland National Park and tourists planning a longer stay to enjoy the delights that our Border County offers.
Childrens play area and petting farm
We have a fabulous childrens outdoor play area. This includes a Roman fort, toddlers pirate ship and a large disc swing.
We are the proud owners of three young black male Alpacas (Knight, Mamba and Minstrel). They are the firm favourites of our visitors who enjoy seeing them keep a watchful eye over our hens and ducks. We also have two donkeys and our resident Guinea Pigs and Rabbits are also here for you to see and children to pet.
