Johnny Vegas is opening his own glamping experience, where accommodation is housed in lovingly-restored and converted vehicles, including a helicopter.

The Lancashire born-comedian and actor has chosen the grounds of stately home Melbourne Hall to be the permanent home of his The Field of Dreams campsite.

Guests will stay in converted vehicles including a German fire truck, Patricia the bus, an American School Bus and a classic Citroen Camper, with three new additions adding to the unique fleet for 2023.

The new options will include a boat, a stylish glamping pied-a-terre beside the lake, and even a helicopter, The Hoot reports.

The news of his new campsite follows the roaring success of the first season of the Channel 4 series, Johnny Vegas: Carry On Glamping, which saw him follow his dream to create a glamping spot with a difference.


This time, the glamping location has changed and we will watch as Jonny navigates the the challenges of expanding the site and developing the business.

The 2021 Yorkshire-based campsite was jam packed with bookings and received rave reviews, however ambitions for a bigger site meant Vegas had to move on from God’s own country (much to our dismay).


The new site will be based at Melbourne Hall in Derbyshire, home of Lord & Lady Kerr.

The glamping site will officially open in April 2023 with bookings being taken now.

The iconic vehicles will be situated across two sites, both within a short walk from the pool for those wanting to take a dip and admire the breathtaking views.


If you’d like to stay at Johnny’s brand new site, then you can book via the Melbourne Hall website.
