Tourist Attractions: No visit to Cornwall would be complete without a day’s visit to the Eden Project with its distinctive white domes, the Eden Project is Cornwall’s best-known tourist attraction. But it’s much more than just a big green theme park and visitors can expect to come away with a better understanding of the environment and their interaction with it. Also visit Tregrehan Garden a dramatic 20ha woodland garden created over the last 200 years by the Carlyon family, forming an exotic green gene bank of known source plants in a temperate rainforest. Within tower some two dozen trees recorded as the biggest of their type in the country. And a day trip to Bodmin will keep you busy on a wet day. The Bodmin & Wenford Railway is part of a network of railways that grew up around Bodmin from 1834, when the original Bodmin & Wadebridge Railway opened. The line ran from Wadebridge to Wenfordbridge, with a branch line to Bodmin, and was built to transport sand from the Camel Estuary. And Bodmin Jail which was built in 1778 to house criminals from throughout the county of Cornwall. It was the first jail known to hold inmates in individual cells and was notorious for the public executions by hanging, which took place outside the jail until 1862.

Eating and Drinking: The Old Inn at St Breward. With its cosy bars, huge roaring log fires and sloping beamed ceilings, The Old Inn & Restaurant is Cornwall’s highest Inn and is situated in the moorland village of St Breward, best known for its granite quarries, breathtaking views, rich history and roaming ponies. Also worth a trip out to try two of world-class restaurants such as Rick Stein’s in Padstow and Jamie Oliver’s at Watergate Bay, there’s a range of high quality eateries within easy reach, many specialising in local seafood delicacies.

Foodstore: The nearest large supermarket is Tesco in Wadebridge which is 5 miles away.

Sporting Activities: The range of activities available in north Cornwall is staggering including: some of the best surfing and extreme sport beaches in Europe; superb walking with dramatic views to be enjoyed from the South West Coastal Path and high moors. With more than a mile of the river Camel running through the property Helsbury Park offers a secluded haven to enjoy some of the best salmon fishing available in the UK. Fishing begins on the 1st of May and runs through to December, which is unique in the UK, the best time to fish on site is from September through to December when the river fills after the summer.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday. We have only recently rescued our Chocolate Lab and it was great to see her have such a lovely time. You must be very proud of Helsbury Park. We look forward to returning"

  • "This is our seventh year and eighth stay at Helsbury Park and yet again it has been a fantastic holiday! Thank you."

  • October 2010

  • "Just to say a big thank you for our lovely week away, I know the weather couldn't have been better but Helsbury would have been very comfortable to be in, even if we had to be more house bound - the pool was a huge hit and the dogs are exhausted from days on the beach and just mooching around the bottom field and stream."
