Bookings for new luxury glamping Castle Pods NOW OPEN
Don’t let the sometimes cold, blustery and wet North East weather dampen your barbeque spirits when camping Northumberland. At Herding Hill Farm, you can enjoy a barbeque all year round in our BBQ Hut with friends and family, whatever the weather!
Camping and glamping is not complete without a BBQ feast, so if you are unfortunate to experience bad weather whilst staying with us, or want to gather indoors together with family and friends, our warm and cosy BBQ Hut will provide a sheltered retreat for undisturbed flame grilling. After you have eaten, why not share a glass of something chilled with friends whilst stargazing under the dark Northumberland skies on our large decking area? The younger family members may also enjoy toasting marshmallows on the cooling embers.
Ideal for friends and families to get together, our BBQ Hut accommodates up to 20 guests seated around an open fire with grill. There is also a large outdoor decking area with picnic tables so that you can all out outdoors together. Our friendly wardens will even lay the fire for you. It’s especially popular with birthday celebrations and corporate retreats. Herding Hill Farm campsite is open all year-round and our BBQ hut allows you to enjoy the taste of the outdoors in every season.
Private hire of the BBQ for 3 hours costs £40. If you want to book the BBQ hut please give our Reception a call on 01434 320175. Hire includes the supply of charcoal and the use of cooking utensils. Morning, afternoon and evening sessions available. We have BBQ packs for sale at Reception from our local Haltwhistle butchers if you want to grill some Northumberland produce.
There are views outside the BBQ Hut on our large stargazing decking of our spectacular Northumberland countryside and amazing sunsets all year-round. We also have some of the darkest skies in Northumberland.
You are required to bring your own food, plates, bowls, cutlery and cups/glasses.
Did you know that it was the Romans who brought burgers to North East England?
The famous cookbook ‘Apicius’ features a collection of Roman cookery recipes, including a recipe called ‘Isicia Omentata’, which looks a lot like a burger. Although the burger is likely to have made it to Hadrian’s Wall, it would have been served as part of a posh feast, rather than grilled up for the troops.
