She looked fresh-faced and revitalised from her three-day stint in the rural location which was filled with plenty of gym work and yoga sessions.
Stood on a wooden balcony overlooking the hilly terrain, Gemma flashed a bright white smile with her hair styled in a messy updo.

Despite her gorgeous physique, Emmerdale actress Gemma Atkinson recently admitted she still faces questions about how she can be confident whilst weighing 11st.
'I remember telling someone and they couldn’t believe I was that weight,' she told the Daily Mirror. 'But I am 5ft 9in tall, have big thighs and I’m broad – from "good stock" as my grandad would say.'

The beauty also revealed that in high school cruel bullies nicknamed her 'thunder thighs' on account of her curvaceous frame.
'I am very happy now,' she said. 'I still get insecure like most girls. My legs will always be my problem area, that's where we hold weight in my family.
'I have kind of learned to love them in a way. They have been with me for 31 years carrying 11 stone around, so they are doing something right.'

Gemma, who was cast on Hollyoaks at the age of 15, said that she felt intense pressure to stay fit as a teenager, which led her to resent training.
Whenever she had an off week at the gym, she would feel down about herself and overestimate the consequences.
She says that Olly Foster - a personal trainer and her boyfriend of two years - helped give her perspective and develop a healthier, more sustainable approach to fitness.
The blonde stunner now wakes up at 4:30am and starts her day with yoga or 30 minutes on the exercise bike - but occasionally indulges in doughnuts as a reward.

Gemma does not own a scale and has frequently made the case that weighing more does not mean one is less fit.
At the start of the year she posted a striking side-by-side bikini photo on Instagram, showing her body before and after she started weight training.
She looks healthy and stunning in both shots, but points out that she weighs more in the after photo, which shows her looking absolutely ripped.
The caption said: 'Believe it or not, I'm around 1 stone heavier in the pink bikini but with a lot less body fat.'
