AIRBNB has revealed its top 21 most wishlisted homes by Brits in 2021, and a Winchester Pigsty took top spot.

After a tumultuous year, Brits’ approach to travel has certainly changed, as the homes most frequently saved on the site have taken a definite turn closer to home.

The Pitt based Airbnb stole the top spot from the more exotic Greek cave in 2020 and the far flung Balian treehouse in 2019.

The Pigsty is Winchester's first luxury woodland hideaway, with beautiful views of Vale Farm.

Situated less than 2.5 miles from the historic centre of Winchester, this peaceful retreat is perfect for those looking to visit the city, or escape for some peace.

Naomi, Airbnb Superhost at The Pigsty said: “I list “The Pigsty” with my husband Sam, who works on the pig farm that has been in our family for generations. We started hosting on Airbnb in late 2019 and we’ve honestly never looked back, especially during this past year when places like ours have been in such high demand.

“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.”

The Pigsty’s domed design with wooden interior has a roll top bath, cosy open plan living space and decking area to enjoy dinner with sunset views.

Just a few minutes walk from the famous Clarendon Way, and a 30 minute walk to the city centre.

It offers a king-sized bed, simple kitchen, TV and there is a gas BBQ for guests to use.

A stay in this luxurious Hampshire hideaway will set you back around £193

Breakfast is provided for the first morning of your stay, however tea, milk and fresh coffee beans (that have been roasted on the farm) are available throughout your stay.

An Airbnb spokesperson said: “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.

“The pandemic has prompted a fundamental  shift in travel and a realignment of what’s most important to us as human beings. 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.”
