AN award-winning camping and glamping site has joined forces with Northumberland Wildlife Trust.

Herding Hill Farm, near Haltwhistle, has become the trust’s corporate supporter, and will continue to offer staycation opportunities for visitors to the area.

Mike Pratt, Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s chief executive said: “It’s so encouraging for us that the team at Herding Hill Farm is just as passionate about Northumberland as we are, so I am sure this is going to be a wonderful partnership.

“As a trust we are always telling people to take staycations, rather than travel abroad, so what better way to enjoy your holiday time than by experiencing a bit of luxury whilst deciding which of the trust’s reserves to visit in the area after an immersion in Roman history.”

Rated five-star by Visit England and recognised as Covid-19 confident by the AA, the site offers stylish camping and glamping just one mile from Hadrian’s Wall – all perfect for stargazing under the dark Northumberland skies.

The site offers guests an experience to suit all tastes and budgets, from large serviced gravel pitches for tourers and spacious grass tent pitches to wooden Wigwam cabins, some with private outdoor hot tubs, as well as a luxury lodge. The site has a licensed shop and an award-winning luxury amenities building to cater for guests’ every need.

Jo Ritzema, managing director of Brampton firm WCF, the owners of Herding Hill, said: “Through our pet and equestrian stores we already support Cumbria Wildlife Trust and it is our pleasure to extend this partnership into Northumberland.

“The majority of guests who visit us are wanting to connect with nature, wildlife and the great outdoors and for many of our younger guests it can be their first time camping. The experiences they enjoy whilst holidaying with us may well shape their relationship with natural heritage forever.”
