HELEN Flanagan has given an insight into her dreamy pre-Christmas staycation with her family.
The former Coronation Street star, 31, opted for an incredible stay in Loch Lomond, Scotland and she's loving the swanky hotel with its festive touches.
The star shared a glimpse of her getaway by posting adorable snaps of her three children, baby son Charlie and daughters Matilda, six, and Delilah, three.
She also shared clips of the hotel and it's epic Scottish landscape surroundings.
The family travelled to five-star resort Cameron House on Loch Lomond and Helen couldn't help but show off their incredible stay on social media.
The kids have been getting active, swimming in the luxurious inside pool and racing down the waterslide slide.
Helen captioned one Instagram story, writing: "The best stay – if your kids just love swimming and slides, it's perfect."

And when they needed their energy back, they recouped in a sophisticated suite with a plush bed fit for royalty, surrounded by the finest Scottish decor and amenities.
Helen called the resort 'dreamy' and added 'this view' when she spanned her phone across the idyllic countryside backdrop and the frosty loch.
Keen to get in the Christmas spirit, Helen cosied up to her eldest child Matilda in one sweet snap.
The mum-and-daughter looked relaxed and happy in their pastel blue matching pyjamas as they cuddled up on a gold velvet chaise long in the swanky hotel.
Other cute photos saw Matilda and Delilah embracing Scottish traditions with tartan-themed Christmas dresses.
The sisters held hands for the photo while mum Helen managed to get the cute Christmas tree image on the front of their dresses in the shot.
Helen also shared photos of her little ones wearing snuggly blue winter coats detailed with white furry trim.
But this isn't unusual attire for the children as Helen previously revealed she was dressing them in Christmas outfits, more than seven weeks before the big day.
Helen appeared to be enjoying the luxurious break as she kicked back in the Scottish resort and recouped ahead of Christmas.
Former Corrie star Helen lived in Scotland for four years while her footballer fiance Scott Sinclair played with Celtic.
Helen and Scott welcomed their third child, son Charlie, in March of this year – with the pair already mum and dad to Matilda, and-Delilah.
In September, The Sun exclusively revealed that Helen had quit Coronation Street for good.
The actress, who last appeared as Rosie Webster in 2018 after playing her on and off since 2000, is said to have decided to focus on motherhood and other career projects.
A source said at the time: "It’s up in the air as to whether she will ever return. She has other career dreams she’d like to work on before making up her mind.
"She wants to focus on her three children and has other career dreams, including acting roles, she would like to work on before making up her mind whether to reprise her role as Rosie.
"In the short term the break would be around two to three more years but there’s no saying she will come back even after that.
"Helen loves Coronation Street, her character and the family but it takes up a huge amount of her time and it’s become unfeasible.
"ITV have left the door open for her should she ever wish to come back."
Her farewell scenes, which aired in 2018, saw her being interviewed by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning before she flew to Japan to be the host of a new TV show.
But Helen recently addressed reports that she won't ever return to the cobbles.
Speaking to OK!, Helen quashed rumours that she'd left for good, saying: "That's a load of rubbish."
"I honestly don't know where these stories come from. I've never said that. The door is left open.
"I wouldn't go back at the moment, as Charlie isn't even 1 yet. Your children are only young once, so I don't want to miss out on anything."
