The most wish-listed Airbnbs in the UK have been revealed, with luxury seaside resorts and woodland retreats the most popular – and will have Aussies dreaming of their overseas escape.
Luxury cabins in Wales, a cosy farm stay in Kent and a former airship in Scotland are just some of the most popular choices – and should be put straight on your overseas bucket list.
The top spot went to the “Pigsty” located in Winchester, which is nothing like its name suggests.
Owner Naomi said: “We’ve created Winchester’s first luxury woodland hideaway and have had so many great reviews already. The most rewarding part of Hosting on Airbnb – when restrictions allow, of course – is meeting and welcoming new guests to our beautiful farm and being able to earn extra money through sharing our space.”
An Airbnb spokesman added: “As we prepare to be able to travel once again, where previously, our Most Wishlisted homes have been dominated by far-flung and exotic destinations, this year it’s all about the rural retreats to explore on domestic shores.”
Here are some of the top Airbnbs that you’ll want to book as soon as international borders open:
