- Back to basics family-friendly stays on a working sheep farm
- Beaches, castles, manor houses and shopping within half an hour
- An hour from rambling Yorkshire's Moors, Dales and the North Pennines
Moonwalk your way to thriller hols at Billy Jeans Campsite, a welcoming site on a working sheep farm five minutes’ drive from the village of Fishburn in the north-eastern county of Durham – and don’t forget your walking boots either…
This is a prime spot for lengthy rambling explores: start by following the routes around Escomb lake 30 minutes away, then wander further for strolls at Hamsterley Forest and tramping around the North York Moors National Park, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, all within about an hour of the site.
If you prefer to use your legs for more wheely pursuits, stick around Hamsterley Forest for stunningly scenic mountain biking trails (rent a bike at Hamsterley if you don’t have your own). All of this should leave you pleasantly tired, not to mention craving some eats, so head back to site to get dinner grilling on the barbecue (supplies from Sedgefield, 10 minutes away) or have a night out with pub or restaurant eats in one of the nearby villages.

If your tastes skew more coastal than hilly, you’re in luck round here: venture seaward for beach days at Crimdon or Seaham (within half an hour's drive), with sandy strolls and explores of half-buried World War II bunkers all available.
History buffs keen for more than that will have plenty else to keep them busy, from museums to castles to stately piles all around. Start way back when with a trip around the ruins of Binchester Roman Fort, then come closer to present day at the former strongholds of Barnard and Raby castles. For something more high society, try Moulton Hall, Crook Hall (and maze), Ormesby Hall and the ancestral home of the US’s first president George Washington at Washington Old Hall.
Anyone who thinks history's all about dusty corridors must take a trip to the Beamish open air museum, which tells the tale of life in the north east during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s, or time a stay to be around for Bishop Auckland’s Kynren, an open-air show covering two thousand years of north-eastern history.
For urban days, the sights, sounds and shops of Durham, Darlington and Middlesbrough are all less than half an hour from base.
