Home from Home

Home from Home (2016)


In Home From Home, Johnny Vegas stars as Neil Hackett who, alongside wife Fiona (Niky Wardley), has finally achieved a 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 now feel worth it. That is until they wake up the next morning and meet their neighbours, the effortlessly superior Dillons, outdoorsy Robert (Adam James, Doctor Foster) and glamorous Penny (Emilia Fox, Silent Witness).

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Susan Calman and musical theatre legend Elaine Paige – who is almost unrecognisable as Neil’s fun-loving mum, Mercy Hackett – also appear in the series.

There was a pilot episode broadcast in 2016 before the series followed in 2018.
