Choose from eight very different vehicles, each with its own personality and story, and each transformed into stunning glamping accommodation.

In addition to the five vehicles premiered in the first series of Johnny’s acclaimed ‘Carry on Glamping’ on Channel 4, Melbourne Hall is excited to be the first to offer three new accommodation choices, each of which will be featured in the upcoming second series of Johnny’s programme.

There really is no other glamping experience like this available in the UK!

Bedding and towels are included in your stay, along with all the other amenities you could need. Just bring yourself, clothes and your favourite foods and enjoy staying in your choice of unique and wonderful vehicle.

All vehicles have mains electricity, and access to fresh drinking water. And all guests are provided with a welcome tray of tea, coffee, milk and sugar, and some tasty local biscuits.

Since our sell-out season in 2021, the Field of Dreams team has been busy rescuing and restoring three more exciting and wonderful vehicles to join our original five. We can’t wait for you to meet them, and to welcome you to our new home at Melbourne Hall!
