Johnny Vegas's glampsite is open for business

Where is the campsite, and can I book a vintage vehicle?

Johnny Vegas’s camper van site is open for business.

The new Channel 4 show Carry On Glamping charts the comedian’s attempts to restore an old Maltese bus to be the centrepiece of a new holiday venue.

And the vehicle, dubbed Patricia after his late mother, now has pride of place in his Field of Dreams site in Nidderdale  in the Washburn Valley, a beauty spot on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales The location was chosen after the original site, in Snowdonia fell through.

There is also a 1970s American school bus, a 1960s Mercedes fire engine rescued from Germany, a hybrid of a 1970 Morris Minor Pick-Up and a 1960 Fisher Holivan junior caravan dubbed Billy The Snail and - coming soon - a rare Citroen camper van.

Each vehicle has its own bathroom - set inside a refurbished  vintage horsebox - and private outside space. Prices start from £350 for the minimum two-night stay.

The site,  Breaks Fold Farm, is next to Thruscross Reservoir, and Vegas has future plans for a sculpture park there. The area also has ‘dark sky status’, awarded to the few places in the UK where you can get the clearest view of the night sky.

Bookings are now open at the Breaks Fold Farm glamping website.
