Whether you’re planning to come to Hadrian’s Wall Country on a short-stay cycling holiday, looking for family-friendly cycling, are doing a cycling tour coast to coast or a long-distance cycle route tour or simply plan to explore some of the beautiful Northumberland countryside on 2 wheels, Northumberland glamping or camping at Herding Hill Farm is an ideal base.
Situated in the centre of Great Britain, just north of Haltwhistle, with a range of cycle friendly routes on our doorstep, our Hadrian's Wall campsite offers a range of additional facilities and services to help make your stay more comfortable. You’ll find free hot showers, bath tubs in our ladies’ facilities and family bathroom, and a unisex sauna that is free to use at certain times and available for private hire. We also have secure bike storage. Herding Hill Farm has a range of cyclist friendly accommodation, including spacious grass pitches or our glamping pod Wigwam cabins, some with en-suite WC and private outdoor hot tub.
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).

Herding Hill Farm is an ideal accommodation and rest stop for those cycling the 350 mile Pennine Cycleway from Derby to Berwick Upon Tweed. It is also the ideal end point for those cycling the Northern part of the Cycleway from Berwick Upon Tweed through to Haltwhistle.
