After the filming of ITV Travel Guides, just a year later a film crew return to the park; this time Skiddaw View Holiday Park was the location of a comedy pilot – Home from Home.
Home from Home was filmed during April 2016 and aired on August 30, 2016 on BBC Two. The show featured an all-star cast of: Johnny Vegas (Benidorm), Emilia Fox (Silent Witness), Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) and Adam James (Doctor Foster).
Home from Home was one of several new comedy shows which aired as part of the BBC's "Sitcom Season" marking 60 years since the first sitcom (Hancock's Half Hour). In addition to the new comedies, the season also featured remakes of popular shows such as: "Are You Being Served?" and "Goodnight Sweetheart" along with recreations of lost episodes of "Steptoe & Son" and "Till Death Do Us Part".
We at Skiddaw View Holiday Park were very pleased to be selected as the location of Home from Home.
UPDATE: On December 7, 2016 it was announced that Home From Home has been commissioned for a full series in 2017 for BBC One. [READ MORE].
Neil Hackett (Johnny Vegas) and his wife Fiona (Joanna Page) finally achieve their long-cherished dream of buying a lodge in the Lake District.
Their ‘traditional' lodge at Lake View Holiday Park means everything to them, the years of scrimping and saving all now feel worth it. That is until they wake up the next morning to discover their neighbours, the Dillons: Robert (Adam James) and Penny (Emilia Fox).
The Dillons are effortlessly superior in every way. Fiona enjoys the chance to make friends with her neighbours at a 'getting-to-know-you' barbecue, but Neil is less convinced. When night falls and the sangria flows the atmosphere goes from promising to catastrophic as Neil commits the ultimate faux pas.
