Instagram Inspiration: the Gannel estuary and Pentire in pictures

If you’re wanting to capture some of the most insta-worthy locations in Cornwall, look no further than the Gannel Estuary. Sometimes river and rock, sea and sand conspire to create magical places — and the river Gannel is one of them. A world away from the hustle and bustle of Newquay, but only moments from some of Cornwall’s best restaurants, the Gannel is a beauty spot that’s much less busy than Kynance Cove or Land’s End. Here’s a brief trip  in pictures around the Gannel in pictures to kick off your holiday inspo.
