Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie plan British holiday

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly booked a traditional family break in the British countryside.

The Hollywood couple will take their six children - Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - to stay in the North West's Lake District.

'Angelina has to remain close to the UK because of her filming schedule for Maleficent,' an insider told the Daily Mirror.

'Brad has rented out an entire boathouse, and the couple have been looking up some local restaurants to dine at whilst there.'

Never one to miss out on an adventure, 48-year-old Brad is 'planning a day of quad biking for the kids.'

The family spent last weekend in the seaside town of Le Touquet in northern France.
