Herding Hill Farm is a dog-friendly AA award winning 5-star campsite located just 1 mile from Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland. We welcome touring caravans, motorhomes/campervans, campers and glampers. Nestled in a peaceful and idyllic moorland location above the ‘Centre of Great Britain' town of Haltwhistle in Northumberland, we are only 1 mile from Hadrian's Wall and just 15 minutes walk from Cawfields Quarry and the Northumberland International Dark Skies Park. Stargazing from the site is amazing when the skies are clear particularly from your own private hot tub.
We are open all year round and have a state of the art energy efficient amenity block with underfloor heating, unisex sauna available for private use, drying room, laundry room, covered washing up area, family/accessible bathroom and a further 2 baths within the ladies amenities.

If you are towing a caravan please do not follow your Sat Nav as this may take you up Shield Hill from Haltwhistle, which is extremely steep for a caravan.
Travelling from the east on the A69 continue past Haltwhistle and after approximately 3 miles you will see a right turn to Greenhead. After 100 meters turn right at the junction of the B6318 and after 3 miles you will then pick up our brown tourist sign at the Milecastle Inn.
From the West also take the Greenhead turn off the A69.
