General

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

What a whopper of a site. Award-winning activity and fishing centre Billing Aquadrome a couple of miles from Great Billing in Northamptonshire is set over 235 acres of green parkland and lakes, with so much to do around its grounds you'll likely want to stay put here for your entire hol. (And if you do desire to speed off somewhere? Silverstone is half an hour's drive away.)

The site's setting on an aquadrome surrounded by water has it crammed with 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 up to date licence, and buy a fishing ticket from the site team if you want to try your fishy luck.

Away from the water, the many other on-site options include a swish leisure complex with indoor pool, Jacuzzi, splash zone, water flume and soft play – and then there's the hovercraft school, miniature train and adventure golf to keep all entertained out of doors...

More? Trot along to investigate the multisports area, climbing wall and go-karting for a heady mixture of family fun, or make your way back to the lakes for water zorbing or pedalo boating. Summer sees the park buzzing with festivals, displays and special events around the grounds and in the bars and restaurants (yes, plural, plus a beer garden) as evening falls.

And speaking of the essentials... as well as the beer garden, bars and restaurants, there are takeaways, a supermarket and shops right on site too, as well as picnic areas, an internet café, Sky Sports and – if you need some pampering or barnet taming after all that activity – a hairdresser's and a mini spa.

    The entertainment staff were amazing. Really made a fuss of our kids at the mini disco. The swimming pool was clean and there were two life guards on duty which filled me with confidence. The showers on site were warm and powerful and free!

    the lakes.

    Disliked: 

    we stayed over the Christmas period so we didn't expect much to be going on entertainment or activities wise so that's not a problem. I do however have a problem with the ablutions facilities. the male toilet and shower block were absolutely disgusting, they smelt of sewage and appeared to have not been cleaned for a long time. my view on this is if you are going to remain open throughout the year you should provide adequate basic amenities for your customers - being off peak is not an excuse for poor hygiene.

    Can't really good it 100% only neutral as we didn't see much of park at all. Or experience it much customer service as we were out shopping. But what we saw of it was good.
