Live it up in Cornwall like Jesy Nelson or staycation in North Wales like Andrew Lincoln

Searches for staycations have increased by 384 per cent, according to Park Leisure, but which UK destinations are the most popular with celebrities?

Cornwall is well known as being at the top of the list for a caravan or motorhome getaway, but it’s also a good spot for a bit of celeb spotting.

Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson has enjoyed holidays in England’s most southwesterly county, as has fellow popstar Rochelle Humes with her family.

Peter Andre indulged in two quintessentially Cornish activities when he holidayed there with his brood, surfing and catching crabs on the county’s famed coast.

Cornwall isn’t the only staycation destination that has proved a hit with the rich and famous, however, with North Wales boasting a number of famous guests.

The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln holidayed in Snowdonia with his wife, where they enjoyed watersports at Conway Valley Lagoon.

Prior to her husband Derek’s battle with coronavirus, Kate Garraway spent a weekend having seaside adventures near Abersoch, with the couple making family memories with their two children.

The Beckhams may own a holiday home in The Cotswolds, but you don’t have to be a successful footballer or fashion designer to enjoy a break in this part of the world.

This quintessentially English area spanning 800 square miles lends itself to a touring holiday, letting you explore each of its distinctive areas from rolling hills to chocolate box villages.

Lisa Williams, director of marketing and holiday sales at Park Leisure, said: “We’re so lucky that the UK has so many incredible holiday destinations, and you can tell how popular they are due to the frequent visits by celebrities, as well as the stars choosing to invest in holiday homes here.

“With uncertainty around holidays abroad, there really has never been a better time to explore the beauty of the UK.”
