Hollywood supercouple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are planning to take an extended break this year - in the British Lake District.

Pitt, who spent time in the UK when he filmed Guy Ritchie's film SNATCH, will take his FRIENDS star wife to northern beauty spots in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales.

The impossibly beautiful duo will spend time together in England, where Brad is starting work on his new film Troy, and they will take off for the weekend whenever possible. It is the first time they have been able to spend an extended period of time together since their 2000 wedding.

However, now Jennifer has completed work on Friends, she has cleared her diary to be able to spend as much time as possible with her husband.

A source says, "Brad will be working in Britain and Jennifer is keen to spend a bit of quality time in the Lake District. They hope they can keep things low key and almost blend into the background."

"I'm sure Brad will also want to catch up with friends in London."
