THE most wish-listed Airbnbs in the UK have been revealed, with luxury seaside resorts and woodland retreats the most popular with Brits.
As holidays abroad remain off limits right now, families are looking closer to home for their next trip.
Luxury cabins in Wales, a cosy farm stay in Kent and a former airship in Scotland are just some of the most popular choices.
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 spokesperson added: "With so many of us set to staycation in the UK this year, there’s more opportunity than ever before for Brits to capitalise on increased demand and turn their homes into income engines.
“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 UK Airbnbs you can get booking for when lockdown ends.
1. The Pigsty, Winchester
Worlds away from being a pig-sty, the luxury woodland home has a king-size bed, roll top bath and private veranda with views of the countryside.

It's so popular that the next available dates aren't until October.
