Dog Friendly: Helsbury Park's Doggy Code...
As doggy people ourselves we understand how hard it can be to find good
quality accommodation that welcomes your whole family and your dogs. Thatís
why weíre keen to make Helsbury Park as dog friendly as possible. We also
understand why many accommodation owners say no dogs! Weíre determined not
to punish the considerate majority of dog owners for the behaviour of the
few. To ensure we all get along for years to come, we thought it might be
helpful to outline some house rules for our doggy guests and also to remind
you of some useful tips for a safe and happy holiday. Itís important to
point out that taking a dog friendly holiday does not mean taking a holiday
from your responsibilities as a dog owner.
For the consideration of other guests, other dogs and animals on site you must keep your dog(s) under control around the other properties, this may mean keeping them on the lead when you first set out for your walk, obviously once theyíre out in the fields or the woods they can be off the lead as much as you like
You must let us know in advance if youíre bring more dogs than stated on your booking form, any additional dogs arriving without prior notice will be charged for at £30 per dog
When you want to go out to dinner consider trying one of the many local pubs that allow you to take your dog with you.
Pease do not leave your dog(s) alone with free run of the property. We can arrange dog sitting which enables you to go out and know your dog is being looked after by an experienced person.
Feel free to use the kennel weíve provided adjacent to each property but make sure you provide your dog(s) with water and clean out afterwards
Do do doo-doo patrol! Please pick up after your dog(s) wherever they are and dispose of poo in an outside bin, even if itís raining. Weíve provided free poo-bags in the dispensers on site, so please use them. And remember you can take bags with you to the beach and on walks. Also, please do it as you go along as our gardener may well mow the lawn while youíre out and itís easier for him if the lawn is clear of poo
If you have a puppy please bring a crate or cage with you, we really donít want them to chew the furniture or soft furnishings here in our luxury cottages! As maintaining our grading is key to our unique offer we canít always just repair damage, more often than not it has to be replaced, at your expense! We do have a cage you can borrow if required, just let us know
Remember to take plenty of fresh water with you on days out. Some of the
quieter beaches do not have facilities that allow you to fill a bottle.
Dogs are not allowed upstairs in the barns, there are stair gates in both properties to assist you with this, just ask if you have any problems operating them, in Broadview please shut the doors to rooms youíre not using so that dogs do not sneak into bedrooms when your back is turned
Please do not allow dogs on furniture without using one of the blankets provided
try and discourage your dog from eating the wildlife
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a blissful week at Helsbury! We all had a
fantastic time, the house is heavenly and the woodlands are delightful. We all
left reluctantly this morning but Barney clearly didn't want to and we
eventually found him hiding under the chair in the kitchen area! Thank you
again and if you'll allow us to return I'd love to book again for next year."
"For the third year running we have had a fantastic holiday, so peaceful
and relaxing. The dogs adore playing in the river and chasing through the
woods and fields. Perfect."
