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 dog-friendly accommodation at Herding Hill Farm bring their dog! And the small monkeys are usually found swinging through the trees at nearby Go Ape!
As a dog-friendly campsite in Northumberland, 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. If you fancy pitching up a tent, our camping and touring pitches are dog-friendly too. Camping and glamping with your dog can be one of the very best experiences to share with your four-legged friend.
All dogs are welcome whether they are pets or assistance dogs although they must be kept on a leash at all times whilst on site. We have a wonderful private dog walk on site past the animal petting farm and onto the hill where your four-legged friends can be let off the lead to run around.

However, no dangerous breeds please!
Sorry, but our Luxury Lodge and Castle Pods are NOT dog-friendly.
We do love having dogs at the campsite and we make no separate charge for them (except a nominal cleaning charge of £5 a night for dogs in our Wigwam cabins).
One of our VW camper vans for hire through Herding Campers is dog friendly if you want to take your four-legged friend on a Northumberland road trip.
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 itself (dogs can be let off at your own risk when on the dog walk) and always cleaned up after. To make it easier for you we have included a sturdy dog ring at every pitch and a supply of poo bags at our dog litter bins. 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.
Our dog-friendly campsite not only offers great amenities on-site but there are also great dog walks nearby too. 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 opened up a dog walk area to the South of our campsite where you are free to take your dog. From the top of the hill there are wonderful views across to the North Pennines and we have put some benches up there for those that want to watch the Northumberland sun set.
We have a couple of good walks starting right from the campsite. 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.
