Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2012 Entry 3

Suzanne Harris entered this lovely photo of her two dogs Bob and Charlie here at Helsbury, she said: "Sorry it has taken a while to drop you this email but just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful week spent at Helsbury Park in March. We are already looking at dates and hoping to stay again. Thought this one showed just how much Bob and Charlie loved the river at Helsbury Park and that they were very sad to have to go home. Hope to be back soon."

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2012 Entry 2

Helsbury Dog Photo Competition 2012 Entry 1

Here we go again, as ever we're pleased to announce the beginning of another year of brilliant photos from our guests and their dogs here on holiday at Helsbury Park. The first of the year is from Yvonne Brennan who stayed in Broadview with her dog Pola, she said: "Just a quick thank you for providing such comfortable accommodation for us and Pola. We had an excellent break and found everyone in the area very welcoming to Pola, she was even invited in to Art Galleries and Potteries on our trips to Padstow and Port Isaac. Looking over the wall was her favourite occupation when not out and about. The paddock was a great boon for a very athletic dog, who gets withdrawal symptoms if she doesn’t get her morning marathon run. The pool facility is fantastic , I could go on and on but what I am really saying is you truly deserve your 5* award. Thank you again."

The Winner of the 2011 Dog Photo Competition....

We've had over 1200 votes in our competition which is the highest ever, thank you very much. All the photos received votes, two or three stood out from the crowd but there was one clear winner and it was HP004, sent in by Nichola Hockey, of Rio the Retriever smiling broadly on the beach during his holiday here at Helsbury.

Jason & Nichola sent this message after hearing that they'd won: “Wow! Before arriving we had high expectations of Helsbury and were certainly not disappointed. We were overwhelmed by the attention to detail in the cottages, the view and the new pool complex is stunning. Helsbury Park is by far the best dog friendly holiday accommodation we have stayed in, it is like having a holiday at home, all the comforts of your own home and the beautiful countryside right on your doorstep. We think Helsbury Park is a very special place which feels like home as soon as we have unpacked! A superb holiday for all of us. We're all really pleased and excited about winning this year’s Dog Photo competition. Rio our 4 year old Golden Retriever absolutely loves being on holiday at Helsbury. He enjoys running around the fields, the woodland and being a retriever he is always in the river!
