After first launching in Yorkshire in 2021, Vegas and his team have moved The Field of Dreams to Melbourne Hall in Derbyshire after approaching the owners Lord and Lady Kerr.

From April, holidaymakers are invited to spend the night at Vegas’s The Field of Dreams – a glamping haven for lovers of vintage vehicles.

Those wishing to spend a night on the site can book to stay in a German fire truck, an American school bus (dubbed Patricia), a classic Citroen Camper, or a rare 1964 Austin J2 Bluebird Highwayman.

Other eclectic motors have also been added to this year’s line up including the soon-to-be restored boat named Mahala, which will take prime place next to the lake.

A helicopter that served in Chile and Sierra Leone is also expected to take centre stage in 2023.

The vehicles will be spread across two sites that are both within walking distance of a swimming pool and the stately home’s walled gardens.

Visitors can expect comedians, music and food and drink on site too.

For those after more fun this summer, guests can combine their stay with a series of summers events dubbed Live at Melbourne Hall.

The Channel 4 series Johnny Vegas: Carry On Glamping is set to return to the box in 2023 and will follow Johnny and his long-suffering assistant Bev with the setting up of the site at Melbourne Hall.

Bookings are now open with guests being welcomed onto the site in April.

Vegas isn’t the only celebrity who likes to holiday on the road, Annabel Croft and her husband Mel Coleman have transformed a bog-standard white van into their dream holiday home.

Meanwhile other famous faces like Carol Vorderman and Lorraine Kelly love going on holidays in their caravans.

From April guests will be able to stay in restored boats, helicopters and fire trucks at the Field of Dreams glamping site
