Helsbury Park Dog Photo Competition 2010 Entry 15

Alix Holley sent these great shots of her chocolate lab Tilly and siad: "Helsbury Park is certainly something special. We spent most of our days visiting the local beaches (Daymer Bay, Rock, Port Isaac, Padstow and Watergate Bay). We also walked up to Brown Willy and Rough Tor which had amazing views. Our days tended to end with lovely swims in your pool followed by big family dinners while the dogs were flaked out by the fire. We rescued Tilly from the Labrador Life Line Trust back in July so it was lovely to be able to take her away for her first holiday. We have discovered that she definitely likes sand as you will see. It’s a shame that she insists on eating it as well!!! We will definitely be coming back as we feel it is the perfect place for all of us."

Cornwall Named Best UK Holiday Destination

Its official: Cornwall is the Best UK Holiday Destination, having been bestowed the coveted title at the British Travel Awards. Open to all destinations across the country and won by public votes, the award represents the views of the consumer making it a true indicator of popularity. Over 20% of the category’s votes were cast in Cornwall’s favour pushing it ahead of the Lake District, last years winner. Steve Kessell of VisitCornwall was there to collect the trophy: “Being awarded the title of Best UK Holiday Destination is a fantastic honour for Cornwall. Not only does it recognise the hard work of the industry but it also shines the national spotlight on Cornwall. The fact that it is based on public opinion makes it even more significant as it comes from those people that count, those that vote with their feet!"

Helsbury Park Dog Photo Competition 2010 Entry 14

Jasper bought his human's along to Helsbury, and sent these photos in, he also wrote: "Just wanted to say what a fantastic time I had with my family at Helsbury Park. There was so much for me to do, I loved the parkland and the woods but my absolute favourite was playing in the river, as you will see from the photographs! My family really enjoyed walking with me and then relaxing in the cottage. I couldn’t persuade them to swim with me in the river but they did really enjoy the new swimming pool, obviously I wasn’t allowed in which was a shame as I would have liked to join in!"

Clever boy!
