Did you know that Roman pets included the greyhound, the ferret, the blackbird, the nightingale, the parrot and small monkeys?
We find that most of our guests choosing pet-friendly accommodation at Herding Hill Farm bring their dog! And the small monkeys are usually found swinging through the trees at nearby Go Ape!
We know how important it is to bring along the dearly loved canine members of your family, so at Herding Hill Farm we welcome up to 2 ‘well behaved’ dogs per Wigwam cabin and our touring pitches are pet-friendly too. Camping and glamping with your dog can be one of the very best experiences to share with your four-legged friend.
However, no dangerous breeds please!
Sorry, but our Luxury Lodge is NOT currently pet-friendly.
We do love having dogs at the campsite and we make no separate charge for them (except a nominal cleaning charge for dogs in our Wigwam cabins).
For the safety and comfort of all our guests though, we do ask that your dog is always kept on a lead or tethered whilst in the campsite and always cleaned up after. If these important rules are not adhered to, then you will be asked to leave the site. It goes without saying that your dog should be healthy (vaccinated), socialised (good with other pooches) and obedient.
The AD122 Hadrian’s Wall Country bus, which stops outside our campsite, is also dog-friendly.
Ask our site wardens to recommend dog-friendly places to eat.
For dog owners who love a good walk, finding good walking routes can sometimes be a bit tricky, especially if you want to let your dog run free off the lead.
We have a couple of good walks starting right from the campsite (click here for the map). There are long stretches on this walk where you can let your dog off the lead, but there may be cattle in places along the route so you will need to put your dog back on a lead at these points.
