Our campsite is now open but the majority of tent pitches remain closed for the season. Some facilities will be restricted. Pre-booked guests only, no walk-ins or backpackers.
Whether you’re planning to come to Hadrian’s Wall Country on a short-stay cycling holiday, an organised cycling tour or simply plan to explore some of the beautiful countryside on 2 wheels during your weekend or mid-week stay, glamping or camping at Herding Hill Farm is an ideal base.
Situated in the centre of Great Britain, just north of Haltwhistle, our campsite offers a range of additional facilities and services to help make your stay more comfortable. You’ll find free hot showers with lots of room, bath tubs in our ladies’ facilities and family bathroom, and a unisex sauna that is free to use on Fridays and Saturdays (between Good Friday and late October). Very welcome after a hard day’s cycling! During the high season it is also free to use on Wednesdays.
Dramatic scenery, quiet trails and historic Roman sites have made the Hadrian’s Cycleway one of the best long-distance cycle routes in the country. The 173 mile (277 Km) cycling route stretches the length of Hadrian's Wall, linking Ravenglass in the western Lake District, to either Tynemouth or South Shields on the North East coast. A shorter version of the ride starts at Bowness-on-Solway. Most of the route follows well-surfaced gravel cycle paths, tarmac cycle paths and quiet minor roads. Signposted as National Route 72 (NCN 72), there are no difficult off-road sections, but there are a few steep, short hills in the central section (up to 150m height climb).

Another way to traverse the length of Hadrian's Wall is on a 'Cycle Trek', a combination of cycling and walking. In simple terms, you cycle the flat bits at either end and you walk the hilly bit in the middle. We will happily take your bike from you at the start of the hilly bit and meet you at an agreed rendezvous point, from where you can cycle back to the campsite.
