Herding Hill Farm offers the closest caravan and campsite to the most complete section of Hadrian's Wall and is also close to Haltwhistle. The campsite is set in an idyllic, rural location and offers nine hardstanding pitches to Caravan Club standards. Three of these pitches are serviced super pitches and all pitches have electric hook-up. The front of the campsite has an area for tents requiring electric and there is another two acre area further down the site for tents without electric and from here you can watch the sun set over Hadrian's Wall.

The campsite offers the peace and tranquillity of the stunning Northumberland Countryside as well as being ideally located to visit Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, the beautiful Lake District, coastal regions of Cumbria and Northumberland and Kielder Forest which hosts Europes biggest man-made reservoir. There's also a whole host of castles, stately homes and visitor attractions that are on the doorstep, and there is plenty to see and do within an hour's drive.

For the 2012 season there was a brand new underfloor heated amenities block with free hot showers, sauna, drying room, laundry room, secure undercover cycle store, Elsan disposal point, motorhome service point, dishwashing area and combined accessible/family bathroom that has baby change facilities and baths. Gas is available from reception and the well stocked shop provides food provisions together with a supply of basic touring caravan equipment. The brand new amenity building houses a 6 person unisex sauna which is open for general use for 2 hours early evening. Outside these times the sauna can be booked by the hour for private use.

Also on the campsite is the Farm Shop & Tea Room which specializes in locally sourced food and drink and the chef creates freshly prepared breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas together with hearty Sunday lunches each week. (Please note the Tea Room is closed from 31st October to 1st March.) The outdoor seating area provides the perfect spot to enjoy a drink from the fully licensed tea room too. The shop has a range of gifts and souvenirs such as items from artisans in the region including photographers, landscape artists, textile and stained glass designers.

Children will love playing on the brand new play area that has a wooden Roman fort and disc swing for the older kids and a pirate ship for the younger children. They can meet the resident alpacas, Mamba and Knight, along with chickens, miniature lop eared rabbits and guinea pigs which they can stroke and hold in the small animal pen outside the tea room.
