Feedback on New Dog Kennels...

Our first piece of feedback, thanks to Dorothy Dence: "I've just read the news about the installation of dog kennels at all of the cottages. I'd just like to say 'what a great idea' !!
We're coming to stay at Marhayes next March for the first time and having 5 dogs of varying ages, I'm sure we'll be using the kennel. Many thanks for being so forwardthinking !"

Photo of the Month: November

Having seen some stunning early mornings this month, we're going for this photo as our photo of the month, we think you'll agree its an absolute stunner. Almost worth getting up for, if you weren't on holiday!

Dog Kennels Now Available on Site...

We’ve recently installed custom built kennels by each one of our cottages. They’ll allow you to be more flexible in how you manage your dog(s) while you’re on site. The kennels have a covered area, an enclosed area and a run giving your dog maximum comfort if they need to stay in there for any reason. The kennels are free to use at your own discretion, we hope you find them useful. They’ve been installed to support our drive to be the UK’s leading dog friendly accommodation.

This is the one at the back of Westhayes

And this one is behind Marhayes. The one for Broadview will be fitted over the next few weeks while we complete the rebuild of the garage. We hope you find them useful and we'd welcome any feedback.

Helsbury Park Photo Competition 2007 / Entry 15

Nick Tucker recently visited us here at Helsbury and bought his beautiful (and massive) Great Dane called Murray. Nick said "Once again, thanks very much for an excellent week in Westhayes at Helsbury Park, we were really impressed with the facilities and especially the grounds...Murray thoroughly enjoyed himself, especially in the river!"

Helsbury Park Photo Competition 2007 / Entry 14

Sharon Bean came recently and has sent us this amazing shot of her dog Louis, he is a 3 year old Grand Bassett Griffon Vendeen. Sharon stayed in Marhayes and said "The cottages were fabulous! By far the best we have ever stayed in. Our favourite haunt was Daymer (which is where the shot was taken) but the whole area is just magnificent. We lived in Bude many years ago so that part of the country is quite dear to our hearts and is now firmly in Louis as he loved that coastline and the moors. Helsbury really is well thought out and a home from home."

Visitors' Book 004

A recent entry in our Visitors Book:

We stayed in Marhayes and Broadview during October half term. We were 6 adults and 5 children aged 8-12. Helsbury was the perfect place to spend a week. The properties are finished to an exceptional level. It is stylishly designed with great facilities and all that a family needs (even snooker, table tennis and table footy). The web site mentioned that it was a great place for dog lovers. We don’t have dogs but as we always say 'having boys is like having dogs – they need lots of food, exercise and fresh air!' The walks around Helsbury are beautiful and just the right distance to wear them out. We spent time surfing at Polzeath, visited the Eden Project and Tintagel, but we were just as happy flying kites, playing football or walking around the grounds of Helsbury. A wonderful; half term break for all the family!"

Helsbury Dawn...

As we're now resident in Cornwall it gives us opportunities to see Helsbury in a new light, and thanks to our baby daughter ignoring the clocks going back we've seen quite a few early mornings this week, but when they look like this, who's complaining?
