Billy Jeans is a large open field site a mile off the busy road minor from Billingham to Durham via Fishburm, the nearest village. There was noise from this road at night when we stayed, but not enough to be a significant issue, other than the reminder it's not as rural as it feels.

The site is a large well kept field with 30+ pitches round the edge overlooked by the owner's house. On site there are:

A room with tables, chairs, a fridge and power sockets which can probably seat 20 people comfortably.

A kitchen shed, not normally open to campers, but I assume open to groups. At the end of this is a row of three sinks for washing dishes. These are not covered by any shelter.

A very small toilet block containing one toilet and no handbasin, with directions to use the kitchen sinks. Next to this is a portaloo fitted out with an instant heat shower. This works well enough but it's a cramped space to change in and not disabled accessible, which to loo is. There is another portaloo toilet across the field. The other people on site when we visited said this had worked ok when the site was full so long as people were happy to take turns and wait for things.

Reception is a large caravan by the entry drive from which you can buy some basics like shower gel and tooth paste. (One suggestion from another site we have visited would be to open up the toilet and shower in this to supplement the others. Maybe this is done when they are busy?)

Staff very friendly and helpful. Two pop up chairs were provided without asking with the request we simply leave them when we pack up. You can rent fire pits and buy logs.

This site will appeal to people wanting a simple but clean and well run site. What is does need and I am sure the owners know this, is a bigger purpose built toilet and shower block.

Fishburn village has takeaways. I can recommend the Bangladeshi food as very good. There is also a small shop and fish and chips.

Ratings:

I cannot comment on child friendliness as teenagers are more interested in tech than a playground, but there is a huge amount of space for running about and playing.

The big snag, if the site is full, would be the very limited toilets and showers, especially as it's tents only, so most people will not have their own.

But this is compensated by friendly people who are clearly working to make it a success.

Would we stay again? Definitely yes.
