New Interactive Booking Form

We've given our pdf booking form a bit a facelift and also made it interactive which means when you download it you have a choice. You can print and fill it in by hand or you can type into the form fields and select the options as you go, save it and then print it or email it to us. Which means that you get a copy of what you've sent us and it saves you time.

Here's the new booking form.

New bench by the river...

Some of you will have noticed that we have a lovely new granite bench by the river at Helsbury, this has been recently installed as a tribute to one of the previous owners of Helsbury who died recently. This was his favourite spot on the river and his family hope others can enjoy it too.

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2012 Entry 15

Jo Lockett sent us this lovely review: "I just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had in the Farmhouse at the end of August.  I booked the holiday as a treat for my 40th birthday, but the whole family enjoyed a little taste of luxury.  The pool was stunning, visited everyday, keeping the kids more than happy and to be honest, we could easily have just stayed put all week, walking in the grounds and taking in the breathtaking views.  We were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some deer on a couple of evening strolls and our 1 year old retriever, Tilly, had her first venture into the river and showed us what a good swimmer she is!   The attention to detail was amazing and we could have sat relaxing and admiring the views from the breakfast room all day, if only the kids would allow!  We would love to return sometime in the not too distant future – just hope I don’t have to wait until I’m 50!"

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2012 Entry 14

Sue Ward sent these shots of Murphy and Lola who look like they are loving the sunshine, Sue said "We spent a lovely week with you this August with our two dogs, Murphy and Lola. They had a fantastic time running through the fields, splashing in the sea before collapsing happy and exhausted at the end of each day. Their every need was catered for so thank you once again. Attached are several photos which best captured the sheer joy on their faces!"
