Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2015 Entry 15

Jo Corner sent these shots of some very happy dogs, Beaus and Ollie, on Daymer beach which you will all recognise and Seth doing a bit of birdwatching from the sun room in the farmhouse. Jo said that they had "a fantastic stay, I'm sure we'll have trouble getting the doggy's back in the car!"

8 legged dog spotted on Polzeath beach!

Ian Hastie sent this shot of what he describes as an "octocollie, which is a very rare type of border collie." We'll keep an eye out for any more sightings, in the meantime back to the dog photo competition ;o)

Visitor Book 017

"Just come back from our first wonderful week at Helsbury Park. Can't recommend it enough for dog owners. Upon arrival our two Springers were greeted with handmade dog treats and a toy to play with, along with 100 acres to sniff around. We humans weren't forgotten either, a lovely bottle of wine and flowers made this such a warm welcome. The property we hired was perfect, everything we needed was supplied, and everything was so comfortable, especially the beds where we often slept for 11 hours lol. The leisure facilities were wonderful, after a morning out exploring beautiful Cornish towns and countryside, it was lovely to come back and swim and spend time in the sauna. We loved it that much we are immediately booking for next year. Helsbury Park gets 10/10 from us!"

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2015 Entry 14

Claire Lloyd sent this review and photos: "This is our 8 year old labrador Dave who has visited Helsbury Park 4 times now (or is it 5?!) and absolutely loves it. This is our first stay in the Farmhouse, and it is a lovely place to stay. We love the grounds and the facilities at Helsbury, and our favourite places to visit are Daymer Bay, Padstow, Boscastle and the numerous small villages in the area. Dave had a major op on his leg last year so didn't make it in 2013, but made up for it this time and took in all the sights and smells Helsbury Park has to offer. Thanks Helsbury - we love staying with you and so do our family and friends!! Claire and Paul Lloyd and Dave the dog."

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2015 Entry 13

Manette Crossman and her family including 2 black labs, Archie and Hector, came to Helsbury in the middle of the most splendid September on record and said: "We all really enjoyed our stay at Helsbury Park; the cottage was fantastic and most of all it was perfect for our two dogs. The first shot is of Archie enjoying playtime with his frisbee on the Helsbury fields below the cottages (the frisbee was very sturdy and managed to survive the week!), and the second one is Hector admiring the sea view at Trebarwith Strand, the beach near Tintagel where the dogs had great fun playing in the sea."
