With 2017 now underway we thought we’d take a quick look back at some of our favourite Instagram photos from 2016. Documenting our various travels, meals, adventures and general activities around Cornwall there are a lot to choose from – here are just a few highlights.

 

Starting off the year with a spot of seal spotting at Godrevy, we enjoyed a blustery winter walk - the Cornish coast was looking as stunning as ever.

As the first signs of spring started to appear we were down at Gyllyngvase Beach enjoying blue skies and daffodils – just bliss…

 

On St Piran’s Day we celebrated our first birthday in style raising a glass with a bottle of Fowey Valley Cider and tucking into some delicious cake.

 

Throughout the year we have captured a number of stunning sunsets over the Cornish countryside – this one took place earlier in the year during spring with gorgeous colours spreading across the sky.

As summer approached we enjoyed longer evenings and the chance to explore some of our favourite walks in the sunshine. This image is one of our favourites, showing the reflections off Argal Lake in spring.

Heading off to the cliffs at Portreath over the May bank holiday, it felt as though we were abroad!

The summer solstice brought with it one of the most beautiful sunsets of the year, making the sky look as though it was on fire.

Flying from Newquay during the summer provided the perfect opportunity to capture the Camel Estuary from above...

Visiting Kynance Cove in August we found that it was as beautiful as ever - you can't beat that view...

Kynance Cove is one of our favourite places - it was looking as beautiful as ever today #Cornwall

Autumn brought with it the opportunity to enjoy a meal at the Pandora Inn - a stunning spot to enjoy delicious food with an unforgettable view.

 

No filter was needed for this autumn sunrise...

This autumn sunset down at Lusty Glaze was also pretty special - we loved the reflections on the wet sand...

As winter arrived, so did the run up to Christmas! We love this image of the Cathedral with its Christmas tree outside.

Happy Christmas everyone! #cornwall #cathedral #christmas
