Keen camper? Fancy switching up your usual tent pitch for a more colourful patch? We might have just the spot for you.
What started out as a drunken 2am Ebay purchase of a 1960s Maltese public bus ended up with comedian Johnny Vegas being the proud owner of a glamping field full of retro, repurposed vehicles- the so-called ‘Field of Dreams’. His journey was captured on Channel 4’s Carry on Glamping series, and while it has apparently been a bit of a rollercoaster, the new site is finally open and ready for business.
Where is Johnny Vegas’ camping site?
Its original site in was Harrogate, but it has recently relocated to a new, permanent home in Melbourne Hall, Derbyshire – and it looks pretty damn gorgeous.
When arriving at the Field of Dreams, you’ll find two glamping areas. One houses the Maltese bus called ‘Patricia’, a restored 1960s fire engine and a 1960s French Citroën, alongside a communal fire pit and a horse trailer-turned-bathroom.
Vegas’s glamping resort also offers a stay with picturesque waterside views. The second field is home to a lake as well as a converted boat bolthole with its own bathtub, in addition to a 1970s Morris Minor pickup, a 1960s caravan and ‘Dino’, former ice-cream van dating back to the 1960s.
Intrigued? You can find out more about the Field of Dreams and book a stay here. But you’ll want to act fast – the original glampsite was a huge success, so we can expect this one to be similarly popular.
