Herding Hill is in Northumberland, a Very High Tier 3 Area and is therefore currently unable to re-open. We will contact all guests who were due to stay with us to move their booking or process a full refund. We hope to see you soon.

A warm welcome awaits you in the shadow of Hadrian's Wall

Towing a Caravan:

If you are towing a caravan, please do not follow Sat Nav systems as this may take you up Shield Hill from Haltwhistle which is extremely steep.

If you are travelling from the east on the A69, take the A68 north and then take the B6318 towards Chollerford. You will see our brown tourist signs at the Milecastle Inn which you should then follow.

If you are travelling from the west on the A69, take the Greenhead turn off and head along the B6318. You will see our brown tourist signs at the Milecastle Inn which you should then follow.

Coming by Car:

Take the A69 to Haltwhistle. Look out for the brown Herding Hill Campsite tourist signs.

As you leave the A69, you will find Shield Hill about 200 yards on your right.

Coming by Bus:

The AD122 bus, which runs to Hexham and connects to buses between Newcastle and Carlisle, stops right outside our campsite gates.

This is a seasonal bus service, which operates daily from Good Friday until the end of September. It runs hourly for most of the day.

A range of fares and tickets are available and, when you buy a Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus ticket, all proceeds go directly to operate this invaluable AD122 bus service.

Visit the GO North East website for further information.
