  • Pet-friendly site on 235 acres of parkland
  • Half an hour's drive from Silverstone
  • Fishing lakes, bars and restaurants
What a whopper of a site. Award-winning activity and fishing centre Billing Aquadrome is a couple of miles from Great Billing in Northamptonshire and set over 235 acres of green parkland and lakes. With so much to do around its grounds, it's likely that you'll want to stay put here for your entire trip… and if you do desire to speed off somewhere, Silverstone is only half an hour's drive away. The site is set an aquadrome surrounded by water, so it has fishing lakes of varying sizes and depths where avid anglers can cast off for carp and common mirror carp, catfish, pike, roach, bream, tench and rudd. Bring along your own fishing kit and an up-to-date licence, and buy a fishing ticket from the team if you want to try your luck. Away from the water, the many other facilities include bars and restaurants (yes, plural, plus a beer garden). Just take note that the bar, beer garden and restaurant are all adults-only from 10pm. And speaking of the essentials... there are takeaways, a supermarket and shops right on site too, as well as picnic areas, Sky Sports and – if you need your barnet tamed after all that activity – a hairdresser's.

Shelduck (area 2) non-electric grass pitch

Liked: Absolutely fantastic place to stay for our first time camping with our tent box. We loved that we were able to pitch up anywhere. The park had live music playing which was fab too. The area was lovely with amenities close by and on site. Defo worth the stay and we will be paying another visit in the future for sure. Also the showers and toilet block looked new and were very clean.

Local attractions

You may opt to stay on site for your full holiday, but if you're up for exploring the local area, there's plenty to see and do to keep you entertained. The aquadrome is half an hour's drive from Silverstone Circuit, home of the British Grand Prix and the British round of the MotoGP, 25 minutes from Santa Pod Raceway and 40 minutes from Rockingham Motor Speedway. For racing of a non-motorised style, Towcester Racecourse is within half an hour. It's about an hour from here to the UK's biggest zoo at Whipsnade, and to Europe's biggest artificial lake at Rutland Water. About 35 minutes' drive north is Market Harborough and the massive adventure play centre Mini Mischief.
