Airbnb reveals hotspots across the country where we munched on chocolate this Easter bank holiday
It’s the first day back after Easter and it’s safe to say we are all feeling a little groggy.
The weekend, spent searching for edible gems in the grass, posing with the Easter bunny and stuffing our faces with buttery hot cross buns has really taken it out of us.
But whilst we are now back at the home, in the office and the classroom, it appears we have been quite the travellers this weekend.
Fidgety with the excitement of the first bank holiday of 2016, we all packed up the cars and took stay-cations across the country.
Airbnb has released stats that show a huge surge in house rentals over the long weekend.
On average, there was a 56% increase in rentals compared to the average weekend, whilst some hotspots reached a staggering spike of over 200% more visitors than usual.
The top crowd-pleaser was North Wales that saw a 227% spike in guests this Easter.
Other coastal destinations which also topped the list include Plymouth, Cornwall and Devon – despite the lashing storms! And many others hunkered down in the Highlands as Inverness, Isle of Skye and Argyll all greeted over 150% more guests than usual.
