On Monday, Carol shared a picture of the beautiful beach near where she was staying, and captioned the snap: "Good morning gorgeous peeps from Wales. Finally after the lockdown has been lifted slightly, I could come home. I grew up in North Wales and to see the sea and the mountains and the cows and sheep and green green grass (cue @realsirtomjones)…it fills my heart to bursting point."

On her stories, Carol could be seen giving the terrace a good clean. Wearing an all-black outfit for the job at hand, the TV star got stuck in hosing down the glass windows and even put together a stunning wicker sofa for people to sit on outside.

Alongside the beautiful Welsh abode, Carol recently shared the news that she is looking at buying a mobile home! She spoke to her followers via Instagram Stories to reveal that she is looking into purchasing a van to be able to travel round the country.

"OMG I'm so excited – I'm going to get a van in my life so I can stay out one or two nights here and there." She then started to fantasise about her plans, saying: "I'll look up at the stars and get a little campfire going," and explained that she was going to speak to the owner of Van Life Builds, Wayne to discuss her options.
