Here in the UK we’ve become accustomed to the miserable winters and half decent summers, so when it comes to booking a break away it’s hard not to be drawn to the most beautiful places on the planet. It seems, however, that some of the world’s biggest celebs think differently, and are in fact making a beeline straight to our Great British Isles. This week it was revealed that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, two of the hottest people in the world, are heading to the Norfolk Broads for a boating holiday! As it happens, they’re not the only ones to enjoy a UK escape…
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis in Norfolk Broads
So whilst Mila’s filming her new movie with the rather handsome Channing Tatum, she and Ashton have decided to make the most of the stunning countryside and take a river boat break through the Norfolk Broads. Starting off in Wroxham, the pair will spend the weekend exploring the area and enjoying some quality time away from their busy schedules. But lets face it…they won’t exactly be slumming it! After trying out the local ciders during filming, the pair decided to stick around and find out a little more. Have a look at our Norfolk breaks, and make sure you take your binoculars with you for some celeb-spotting!
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles in Bowness
They may not have been together for very long, but during their whirlwind romance Taylor Swift and Harry Styles managed to fit in a romantic break to Bowness on Windermere in The Lakes. As one of the most eligible guys on the planet, taking a break in secret isn’t really an option for the One Direction heartthrob, meaning the whole world knew exactly what they’d been getting up to on their trip! Visits to Beatrix Potter, feeding doves by the waterside and even shopping in the boutique jewellery stores kept the duo busy on their trip. Luckily for us, none of those activities require an A-List bank balance, so to recreate their break read our Lake District guide here to find out all about it!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Kent
Hollywood super-couple Brad and Angelina paid a visit to the sleepy village of Ickham, Kent last December while he filmed scenes from his latest movie, World War Z. The family famously travel everywhere together, so Ange and the six kids all joined him in the stunning Treasury barn conversion just outside of Canterbury. Just a short distance from the coast, it’s the ideal destination for a truly British break, which Brad took to the maximum by popping next door for a pint in the local pub! If you fancy doing a ‘Brangelina’ and relaxing in the idyllic surroundings of the Kent countryside, check out our great range of hotels in the Canterbury area.
In reality, the UK offers some of the most picturesque locations in the world, so if, like our celebs, you’ve had enough of sunning yourself on white sandy beaches and drinking nothing but ice cold cocktails, get yourself on a UK short break this summer instead!
