General

  • Pet-friendly site on 235 acres of parkland
  • Leisure complex with pool, Jacuzzi, soft play and gym
  • Amusement park, fishing lakes, golf, zorbing, spa, bars, restaurants

Set in 235 acres of Northamptonshire parkland, Billing Aquadrome has a range of activities to appeal to all ages and is a convenient touring base for many of the attractions round and about. Billing Aquadrome is situated on an aquadrome and is surrounded by water. It's also a pet-friendly holiday park.

There are loads of on-site facilities including a swish leisure complex with indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, splash zone, water flume and indoor children’s soft play area, a gym. There's also a miniature train on site and an amusement park to keep everyone entertained, along with even more activities in the summer season when the park is alive with festivals, displays and special events. Come evening time, the bars and restaurants are a favourite point to meet friends old and new.

Billing Aquadrome is also well known for its many fishing lakes and as a result makes a great holiday destination for the avid angler. With waters of various sizes and depths, you can fish for carp and common mirror carp, catfish, pike, roach, bream, tench and rudd. Charges apply for fishing and you need a fishing licence and your own fishing equipment.

Facilities include restaurants, bars, a beer garden, takeaways, supermarket, shops, a multi-use games area, amusements arcades, a fairground, adventure golf, pedalos, go-karts, bike hire, water zorbs, an internet café, picnic areas, a climbing wall, Sky Sports, a hairdresser's and a mini spa.

The park also has showers, toilets and a launderette.

Excellent site, clean, friendly and well maintained. 15/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Kerry I. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Billing is a fantastic site. Plenty to do if you want or space to relax too.
    Security always driving around so you feel safe knowing your tent is play if you leave it.
    Toilets and facilities are very clean and well maintained.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at billing.
    Pitch would be good if you could book for more than 4. We had to change our booking as we're a family of 5.

Over priced as most advertised activities are not available 12/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Toilets and showers clean and tidy

    Disliked: 

    There was little to do over the 3 days we were here, go karting 'arrive and drive' supposedly open 12-5 was closed at 3pm and they don't offer the 1.5 hour driving experience advertised on the Billing camping website, apparently never have!
    The miniature railway didn't run at all during our stay, neither did the fun fair, the hovercraft school or the adventure golf!
    The water zorbing closed since February when we enquired but again still advertised on website!
    At least the swimming was open, £5 per adult and £3.50 per child with non-refundable 50p lockers! The arcade and 'venue' were open too and another pub on site plus the shop! I'm not a fisher so can't comment on that. Reception couldn't tell me why everything was closed other than saying everything is 'weather permitting' so if it rains basically everything closes! I won't be going back. Also no grey waste facilities for emptying tourer waste water other than waste height, (it isn't possible to lift tourer waste trolleys that high)

Bearable for a couple of nights, but probably won't return 01/08/2017

    Swimming Pool

    Disliked: 

    Very unfriendly and unwelcoming reception staff - due to a late booking the Security gate didn't have my details. When checking in at reception it felt like we were a burden and they just couldn't be bothered.
    It's a very noisy site due to the size
    Consideration of other campers - for example, driving across grass areas between tents to get to the shower block, rather than sticking to the roads.

Big site but this meant everything was at a distance 01/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom DEBRA H. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    There was obviously a lot to do there and it was nice being close to the wild life :ie swans and geese, toilets and showers where reasonably clean.

    Disliked: 

    Everything came at a price even the swimming pool where we have come to expect that as part of the Holiday, and being close to nature comes at its own price to :ie swan and goose poop, and lots of it and when your camping you try to avoid those sorts of things but here there was no escape.
    Showers were annoying as only stayed on for about 10 seconds before you had to press the button again, and also they seemed to get hotter and hotter which is not ideal for children.
    As it was an Aquadrome I would have expected more activities in the pool as in more flumes.
