Gold Award for Helsbury at Tourism Oscars...
We were extremely pleased to pick up a gold and a silver at the Cornwall Tourism Awards this year, the awards are highly sought after and we worked to get there.

The gold was for our web site which the judges commented: "Helsbury Park was the only site we assessed that was fully DDA compliant and validated by the World Wide Web Consortium. Both the written submission and the website itself were technically excellent, with superbly thought out and designed web pages. The site has really great internal linking, which is essential for good search engine optimisation. There is an easy- to- find option to enlarge the text, and some very useful information on the local area as well as Helsbury Park itself. This provider offers luxury accommodation for dogs and their owners, and they have produced a website and online marketing that really captures that target market'
The silver was for the accommodation itself, in a hugely competitive sector to pick up a silver was a stunning achievement as well, it effectively puts us in the top 3 accommodation providers in Cornwall and makes us the number 1 for dog friendliness. We are already planning improvements and our tactics for next years awards!
