THE KING'S COTTAGE
We stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast in Lancaster called The King's Cottage. We had dinner at Loxely's Restaurant, where we had our own private room and an amazingly unforgettable meal (plus cake!). Back at The King's Cottage, we stayed up past midnight chatting and laughing about everything under the sun. Not too long after most of us had gone to bed, the fire alarm went off (around 6am, we were graced by an encore performance). We had an amazing breakfast the following morning, and just an incredible time overall. The owners of the bed and breakfast were wonderful and really made our stay enjoyable.

MIDDLE-EARTH NEWS PHOTOSHOOT
We were up bright and early on Saturday to embark on a photoshoot adventure! Thanks to a cursed GPS, we spent some time getting lost before we finally found our destination.

We had a fantastic time together – the best part was that from the moment we arrived, it was like we were old friends who had known each other for years – and man, did those three days fly by too quickly! I can't wait to do it all again sometime (hopefully soon!).
