Since the acquisition, there have been lots of changes across the camping & glamping site including refurbishments, new accommodation, a new playground, a brand new website and much more. Jo Ritzema, Managing Director at WCF first visited Drummohr as a camper herself, saying it benefited from the draw of Edinburgh and the “beautiful coastline and countryside” of East Lothian.
Acquisition of Herding Hill FarmBack in 2019, WCF acquired award winning camping site, Herding Hill Farm, located just 1 mile from the iconic Hadrian's Wall.
"WCF’s managing director said, we hope to capitalise on the growth in staycations and the desire for “experiences” over possessions which has fuelled the recent interest in camping and glamping from all sectors of the economy. As well as continuing the excellent reputation built up by the former owners Steve and Anne Dunwell, we intend to utilise the marketing skills at our Brampton Head Office to generate brand awareness – driven by both the site and its fantastic position on Hadrian’s Wall."
