Cheddar Gorge

 Who knew Lodges could be so fancy?

Last week I spent the most amazing few days at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, where we stayed at a lovely spar resort. And the best part was that we got to be VIPs without paying the VIP prices!! (We are yet to discover why this was haha!)

We stayed in a brand new lodge..being the first people to ever stay in it which was pretty cool! I even preferred it to my own house; I'd quite happily live there tbh! We had five TVs, an enormous, beautiful kitchen, an Apple TV, play station 4 and even a jacuzzi!! It was literally Heaven!

It was so nice to have five relaxing days away, doing nothing but eat chocolate, lay in the jacuzzi and spend endless hours watching Netflix (Pretty Little Liars has got me hooked!) and being able to spend a few uniterupted days with my family. 

The week before I had my dance school show which completely knackered me out, leaving me like a zombie/ old woman for the days to follow... I felt as though I needed a walking stick my knees and back were hurting so bad! So the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room was a v good call.

It was also the last chance that I will properly have to relax before the stress of my A2 exams (which are aproachimg so fast it's v v scary!) And pig out on food as much as possible before I start a strict Ibiza diet for the summer, if I have any chance of looking half decent in a bikini!

The gorge itself was quite breath taking, and the caves were absolutely stunning (I shall leave some images below), but I have to say that my favourite part was watching the goats climb up the side of the steep gorge to reach the highest point of grass possible... It was so funny I could have watched them all day!! 

So I'll leave you by saying that don't ever forget to give yourself those moments to relax, whether it's for a week or just a few hours, you'll be surprised at what a difference it can make!

What's your favourite thing to do when your body needs that time to relax?
