Breaking News ! The coronavirus pandemic has scuppered thousands of people's holiday plans this year. But when Elaina Wootton's family trip to Wales was cancelled, she decided her children would still get that getaway feeling this summer. Instead, the mum-of-six from Peel Hall in Wythenshawe, transformed her semi-detached house into a scene from a Spanish postcard. The house turned villa now boasts a 14ft swimming pool, a bar, and even a beach. Accounting for the fact her home is still in Manchester, Elaina even built an indoor arcade for her kids to enjoy on rainy days.

Elaina says her children, who range from eight to nineteen, are overwhelmed at their new home, after she surprised them last week.

"Before lockdown we all got poorly so we have been stuck inside a lot longer," Elaina said. The arcade complete with coin drop and grabbing machine (Image: Elaina Wootton) "Once everything got out of control we all decided that we didn't want to go on holiday anymore. "I have six children of quite varying ages so I thought, if we can't have a holiday, I will just bring the holiday to us."

Elaina had been planning to take her children on holiday to Wales this summer, which was going to cost her around £2,500. She said the cost of transforming the whole house came to just £1,400.

"We bought a grabbing machine and a coin drop and my friend who is an electrician made us a dart game." Two of Elaina's children have autism, and the mum received a donation from the Family Fund - which she used to buy a hot tub. "I sent the children to stay with their dad for a few days and told them when they came home we would be going on holiday," Elaina said. (Image: Elaina Wootton) "When they came through the door they were absolutely blown away. They were actually really happy because they have been very anxious about coronavirus and going on holiday. "On Sunday I was really happy because the weather held so we were on the beach until 10pm. On Monday when it rained, they spent all day at the arcade. "It has definitely been different but to be honest I don't think I would change it."
