  • Airbnb has revealed the holiday homes that travellers have been desperate to flock to throughout the last few months.

    The holiday rental site regularly keeps travellers updated with popular home rentals to give inspiration and keep us all dreaming of lovely trips away.

    And while Brits are usually seeking out flashy villas in exotic waterfront destinations, rustic Mediterranean houses or cosy city apartments, this year our priorities seem to have made a shift towards destinations a little closer to home.

    New research from the rental site has revealed that Brits have been searching for predominantly UK rentals since lockdown came into place, with the top ten most wished-for destinations being in the UK.

    While lockdown rules still don’t allows us to travel anywhere overnight and UK Airbnb rentals cannot be booked for trips before 3rd July 2020, it doesn’t stop us all from dreaming, planning and favouriting any rentals that take our fancy.

    “We are looking forward to welcoming guests wanting to relax in a cosy environment,” says superhost Lilli who hosts the Romantic Oak Cabin that ranks at number two. “Our cabin offers a perfect location for a staycation, allowing our guests to explore the beautiful British countryside.”
