Emmerdale character Belle Dingle is played by actress Eden Taylor-Draper, 22, and she stepped into the role on the soap set in 2005.

As a result, Eden has been on the hit soap for 15 years now, and she’s built friendships with many of the cast members as a result.

The actress is very close with Emma Atkins, who plays Charity Tate, as well as Sophie Powles who played Holly Barton on the soap, and it turns out she’s also good pals with Isobel Steele, who has played Liv Flaherty in the ITV soap since February 2016.

And seeing as it’s the year of the staycation, Eden and Isobel, 19, took the chance to take a break from filming and head to Bamburgh, Northumberland to enjoy some time together.

It’s safe to say the trip looks pretty dreamy, with the actresses enjoying countryside walks and G&Ts.

In one photo shared by Eden with her 74,000 Instagram followers, she stands in a field patting a horse and looking as happy as ever as the sun sets on the day.

In another, Eden looks stunning as she sits, coat over her shoulders, enjoying a G&T. The star also shared a photo of moody scenes as waves hit against the shore.

Isobel Steele also took to Instagram to give her 98,000 followers a look at the relaxing trip, starting things off with a golden hour selfie of herself and Eden.

She penned: “Gorgeous few days in bamb,” followed by a cow emoji.

Also lapping up the nature during the trip, Isobel shared a snap of a cows and horses grazing in empty fields, as well as a picture of the sky as the sunset created a beautiful image.

When she’s not wowing fans as iconic character Belle Dingle on Emmerdale, Eden enjoys sharing snaps of her home life, much of which is spent with boyfriend Ed.

The 22 year-old has been with boyfriend Ed for four years now, with the couple celebrating the anniversary of their romance in January this year.

And it appears things are serious between the pair, as Eden captions one image of her partner with: “I wanna spend my life with you.”

The sweet pair have enjoyed travelling the world together, and Belle attended Ed's graduation last year, captioning a sweet snap with "you did it."

And it seems Eden has a busy time to come on Emmerdale with a terrible twist written into the soap for the youngster.

Executive producer Jane Hudson told The Sun: “The Belle and Jamie saga, part one will be coming to a head very soon. There will be a twist in there and then it gets worse for Belle for quite some time. There’s a lot more to come in that story. Not all is as it seems.”
