Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading to the Lakes

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning to get away from it all by taking their 6 kids on a family holiday to the Lake District.

The couple have both got upcoming filming commitments in the UK, with Brad re-shooting scenes of zombie flick World War Z and Angelina busy with Disney movie Maleficent, so they're making the most of their stay with a break on Windermere.

Angelina has to remain close to the UK because of her filming schedule for Maleficent,' reveals a source.

‘Originally, the film was supposed to be shooting close to the Lakes, but relocated to a more convenient spot close to Pinewood Studios.

‘They'd already booked a few days off though, and they didn't want the kids to miss out on their trip up to the Lakes, so they decided to go anyway.'

Brad, 48, and fiancée Ange, 37, have faced constant speculation about when their wedding will take place but for now they're busy lining up fun plans for their family holiday.

Brad has rented out an entire boathouse,' the source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘And the couple have been looking up some local restaurants to dine at whilst there. They're also planning a day of quad biking for the kids - and Brad.'
