The unlikely celebrities who love a caravan holiday – from Hollywood stars to sporting heroes

Celebrities are used to private jets and five-star hotels, but for some stars, the only way to unwind is on a good, old-fashioned caravan holiday.

From Wimbledon stars to acting royalty, these celebrities love nothing more than riding in their vans.

Former Wimbledon star Annabelle Croft and her husband Mel Coleman recently turned a bog-standard white van into their dream holiday home.

The couple spent three months and £12,000 converting the Mercedes Sprinter van, which they bought for £13,500.

Since the renovation, Annabelle and her husband have explored the length and breadth of Britain, including the Isle of Wight, Snowdonia, Suffolk and Norfolk.

“I love walking and I’m just not tied down, and I’m going to visit the local area – it’s so easy,” she says.

“We try to do two activities a day when we’re away, so we might go for a walk in the morning and go to a castle or country house in the afternoon and then have a drink in the pub.”

The pair have more caravan holidays lined up for next year too.

Earlier this year, the former Countdown host unveiled her new motorhome on Instagram.

The MAN TGE van comes with a double bed, house plants, white paneled walls, a wood burner and a miniature kitchen complete with gas stove and wooden counter for cooking.

There is also a projector mounted on the door of the camper, a hammock, a skylight and even a roof terrace with benches.

“We want,” she said in a post showing off her home on wheels [sic] If you want to come with me, have many adventures.”

More than 10 years ago, the TV presenter was voted the ideal celebrity holiday companion by Caravan users, and for very good reason.

The Scottish TV presenter is a caravan enthusiast.

“The great thing about going around in a caravan is that you see a lot more,” he says.

“It’s the freedom of the open road that really attracts me.”

British actress Helen achieved success as Emily in the TV shows Cold Feet, Friends and most recently as Lorna in The Cuckoo.

Despite her stint in Hollywood, Helen hasn’t betrayed the British coastal paths.

According to the Telegraph, Helen’s perfect vacation is traveling by camper van.

“I stay in a lot of hotels when I’m working that I’d never stay in on vacation: they make me feel locked in,” he says.

“I much prefer camping or caravanning – the camper van and the open road.

I just love the feeling of “here we go!” I had many caravan holidays with my parents when I was young and I have very happy memories and this is me trying to repeat it.”
