Coleen and Wayne Rooney have reportedly ditched plans to jet off on their annual trip to Barbados this year – swapping the luxury break for a summer holiday in Wales instead.
With uncertainty surrounding just where we can go away on holiday, and whether we will have to stay in a quarantine hotel for 10 days when we first get there, a lot of people aren’t rushing to get on a plane this year.
Coleen and Wayne are amongst those trading in a luscious trip in the sun for something a little closer to home.
The pair, who got married in 2008, have reportedly planned a getaway in a Welsh chalet.
Taking their four children – Kai, 11, Klay, seven, Kit five and three-year-old Cass – the family will reportedly be staying in a popular resort that is referred to locally as “millionaire’s caravan park”.
The ex-England footballer and his wife are used to jetting off to Barbados, where it’s warm all year round, for their annual holidays with their four sons.
However, the year they’re risking a chillier getaway, with Wales having a summer high of 20°C and a history of regular downpours.
They’re reportedly due to stay at The Warren in Abersoch, Gwynedd, which boasts five-star facilities, a helicopter pad and according to The Sun, will set them back £5,000 a week.
A source told the publication: “It’s essentially a step up from camping, but with a gilded twist for the rich and famous.”

Wayne and Coleen, both now 35, knew each other from their time at school and started dating almost 20 years ago in 2002.
They married six years later and are now parents to four boys, Kai, 11, Klay, seven, Kit, five, and Cass, three.
They’ve spent much of the last year at home during the pandemic so it’s likely they are looking forward to a break – even if it’s in a less glamorous spot than Barbados.
The couple regularly thrill fans with pictures of their sun-soaked breaks in the Caribbean.
They managed to get away last summer for a holiday in Barbados, taking the kids and meeting up with Coleen’s brother Joe and a handful of other pals who also arrived on island.
The family reportedly stayed in a stunning five-bedroom villa that sets guests back £25,000 a week to rent.
