SEARCHES for staycations have shot up 384 per cent since January 1, and with international travel still up in the air, UK holidays are once again set to be incredibly popular.

And like the rest of the UK, celebrities be forced to ditch the Maldives and the Bahamas for the likes of Cornwall and North Wales.

For those seeking inspiration, UK holiday home park operator Park Leisure, which has Brynteg and Plas Coch holiday parks in North Wales, has looked into the holiday habits of celebs and the most desirable UK locations for a summer getaway.

These are some of the favourite hotspots in North Wales:

The rugged natural beauty of North Wales is known for attracting its share of A-list visitors. The area acts an amazing getaway, especially for hikers and those who enjoy the outdoors.

Football star Wayne Rooney, and his wife Coleen, have holidayed in the region numerous times.

Ant and Dec were also treated to a luxury stay in the region whilst filming the 2020 season of I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! at Gwrych Castle near Abergele.

They stayed in a £1,000 a week cottage in Penmaenmawr.
