Drummohr Holiday Park was sold to Cumbrian business WCF in March 2021 after the long-standing family owners William Melville and Alison Brodie decided to retire. But did you know that WCF also owns a 5-star caravan, camping and glamping site in Northumberland, just 1 mile from the famous World Heritage site that is Hadrian’s Wall and less than an hour’s drive from the spectacular Northumberland Coast?
If you’re looking for a camping break in the North East, why not visit our other camping & glamping site near Hadrian’s Wall, located amidst the spectacular Northumberland countryside, close to Haltwhistle. You can be assured of the same warm welcome and high standards of customer service you enjoy at Drummohr.
Herding Hill Farm Camping & Glamping Site offers a wide range of accommodation for couples and families and is a dog-friendly campsite in Northumberland. Herding Hill has spacious serviced hard-standing pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, large grassed areas with electric for tent campers, glamping pods, some with en-suite WC and private outdoor hot tub and a luxury self-catering holiday lodge with hot tub. There are also two sleek VW T6 camper vans for hire. Our 5-star amenity block with underfloor heating has a sauna available for private hire and a BBQ hut for hire. Children, young and old, love meeting the animals on our petting farm, including donkeys, Shetland pony, alpacas and piglets. A Dark Sky Friendly site, Herding Hill Farm is perfect for stargazing.
Herding Hill Farm is a 5-star touring, camping and glamping site located 1 mile from Hadrian’s Wall and the Centre of Britain town of Haltwhistle. Nestled in a quiet rural valley, Herding Hill Farm is an excellent base from which to explore the Roman forts of Hadrian’s Wall, the castles and beaches of coastal Northumberland, the Cheviots, Northern Pennines, Kielder Forest and Kielder Water, as well as the market towns of Corbridge and Hexham. The train line through nearby Haltwhistle connects the cities of Newcastle and Carlisle, both easily accessible for a day. The Lake District and Scottish borders are both a short drive away. The long-distance route, the Hadrian’s Wall Path is about a mile from the site and the campsite is ideally placed for both walkers and cyclists. Our Northumberland campsite is family-friendly and perfect for couples and we welcome dogs.
Why not combine a stay at Drummohr with a trip to Herding Hill Farm? There is around 100 miles between the two campsites making them ideal for a 2-centre touring break. You could drive down the spectacular Northumberland coastal route, exploring the amazing castles of Bamburgh, Alnwick and Warworth along the way, or for a more direct route try driving through the Scottish borders. Both sites are open all year-round. If the thought of a weekend road trip like this appeals, but you don’t have your own camper van or motorhome, Herding Campers has two modern, sleek VW T6 camper vans for hire for as little as 3 days at a time? If you give Herding Hill Farm a call on 01434 320175 we’ll even help you to book your pitches (subject to availability).
There are plenty of things to do and to see without needing to venture too far from our Hadrian’s Wall campsite. The Roman forts of Birdsowald, Housesteads and Vindolanda are close by. If you want to understand what life as a Roman soldier was really like why not visit the nearby Roman Army Museum. Herding Hill Farm is lucky enough to be located close to some of the best preserved and most spectacular sections of the Roman Wall, including the Roman quarries of Cawfields and Walltown and there are some amazing circular walks from the campsite and close by. We have a range of glamping and camping accommodation options at Herding Hill for those walkers tackling the Hadrian’s Wall Path, an 84-mile long distance path linking Wallsend, Newcastle Upon Tyne with Bowness on Solway, Cumbria.
