Rich and Lynda Lovatt sent these lovely shots of Jazz and Hextall [great name!] after they recently returned from a fantastic week at the Farmhouse, they said "Having stayed at Broadview last year we knew what a great area it was for the dogs, the highlghts were Daymer Bay, a beach just up from Widemouth and of course on the Helsbury grounds. We would like to thank you for a great week in superb accommodation and surroundings (thanks also for the recomendation of 'The Old Inn' - delicious food). We hope to be back next year."

Helsbury Park Photo Competition 2007 / Entry 9

Well, we've seen some busy dogs in our time but Whistler must win the award for the most walks in on week! He's been all over Helsbury, up Roughtor and Brown Willy and all along the coastal path from Trebarwith to Bedruthan. Great work Whistler, it looks like you had a great time, Mike Rudd, Whistler's Dad said: "Properly dog friendly, high quality accommodation and superb location. We also dropped lucky in coinciding our stay with one of the few weeks of the English summer in 2007, so we enjoyed the best of everything Helsbury has to offer. "

Visitors' Book 003

From Dee Ruan:

"We stayed at Marhayes last week and I just wanted to say a huge thank you as we had the most incredible week - not only were we lucky with the weather, but we had truly the best surroundings. Marhayes is gorgeous - you really thought of everything! -and the view in the morning made it easier for all of us to get out of our super-comfy beds!"

Vin Kelly submitted these superb shots of his dog Benjamin enjoying his holiday at Helsbury, he also said "Firstly a huge appreciation of what you have at Helsbury Park. We stayed in Westhayes and it was better than we ever hoped for. Despite the weather it was the most relaxing, comforting and energetic holiday for a long while. We wanted to stay in England, rather than put Benjamin in kennels, and the week we had at Helsbury was truly excellent."
