    Very clean and had everything that we needed. The beds were very comfortable and all 5 of us had great nights sleeps. The location was outstanding- set in beautiful countryside which we spent many hours exploring with the dog. The streams, woods, pond and fields were a joy and were beautifully looked after. The swimming pool was a real highlight of the stay for us and our young children who would have spent all day in there if they could. Meticulously clean and invitingly warm. We didn’t make use of the gym or sauna but they too looked brilliant. The barns location was a tourists dream, although it felt remote and in the heart of the countryside, it was in fact only a short hop to a host of wonderful Cornish gems. Padstow via the ferry from Rock, port Isaac, Boscastle, Tintagel we’re just some of the places we enjoyed visiting, beautiful places to visit, shop and eat! The only down side of the barn for us was the garden. We found it to be not at all dog secure. We understand that dogs should not be left outside unattended, however there were several places where our inquisitive, medium sized dog was able to leave the garden with ease. With livestock and other dogs in close proximity this could have been an issue if our dog had decided to make use of the escape routes. This meant that we were unable to feel relaxed in the garden and enjoy the lovely weather that we had. We solved one of the escape routes by purchasing some wind breaks and blocking the large gap in the fencing. But the fencing at the top end of the garden needs some thinking about. Over all, we had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the barn, the garden was a shame and maybe something to think about if you are considering staying there with a dog over the summer.

    We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for pointing out the weakness in the fencing, we have strengthened our defences in that area! See you next year. Property Owner

The property

Turn 'walkies' into a real family adventure at Helsbury Park with a 100 acre back garden or enjoy the indoor heated swimming pool.

When you stay in one of the two stunning barns you can kick off your shoes and put your feet up in front of a roaring fire or wallow in a steaming bath after a hard day's exploring.

Helsbury Park will add the comforts of home to your holiday experience and it won't just be your precious pets that are pampered when you stay in these exceptional properties. Situated in the heart of North Cornwall this unique site is nestled in between three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty: The Camel Valley, Bodmin Moor and the North Cornish Coast, this superb venue not only offers luxurious accommodation but is also totally dog friendly.

Stroll around the private grounds which include a river, bridge, woods and pasture - it will take you about an hour to loop the whole garden.

Take in spectacular vistas of Bodmin Moor and the Camel Valley with a view of Roughtor and Devil's Jump to the east and the river valley to the south. Westhayes is one of two 200 year old barn conversions which have been modernised to create spacious and luxurious holiday homes.

Refurbished to maximise its charm and comfort using traditional materials such as slate and granite and luxuries such as a range cooker and wood burner for winter cosiness.

The living accommodation offers a generous kitchen/diner and separate sitting room with a stunning galleried staircase in between.

There are two super bedrooms both with king-size four poster beds and one twin bedroom.

The master bedroom has a stylish ensuite bathroom while the other two have ensuite shower rooms.

Built at right angles to Marhayes (which also sleeps 6), the two barns share a front lawn, with an enclosed private area to the rear where dogs can be exercised in a controlled space, along with an outdoor kennel.

What more could you and your four legged friends wish for! For larger groups we also let the adjoining property: Marhayes (959870).
