Holly’s Holiday Highlights from Sunny Cornwall

Here are some of Holly’s favourite things from our week in sunny Cornwall.

First we stopped off at Pencarrow garden. There is a lovely formal garden and woodland walk and it’s super dog friendly! Holly particularly enjoyed watching the peacocks and chickens as we sat in the cafe courtyard. It certainly kept her entertained! Here is Holly posing for the camera next to the stream at the start of the gorgeous woodland walk.


Next was a visit to Trebah Gardens. What a view!


Holly paddled on the dog friendly beach at Trebah but her favourite past time was definitely watching the Koi carp in the pond. They were simply fascinating to a small dog…

Watching the fish

We explored every bit of the garden doing the treasure hunt and when we handed in our quiz sheets to the nice lady at the entrance desk she gave Holly a bag of treats to say well done for helping to sniff out the clues. Then it was off to the best dog friendly cafe in Cornwall for some well earned fish and chips.

A visit to Gweek Seal Sanctuary was Holly’s final holiday highlight. They do brilliant work rescuing seal pups off the Cornish coast. Holly couldn’t believe her luck seeing penguins and otters on the same day…

Starsky the amazing juggling otter was a real holiday highlight for us all. We took some video footage and put it on our website in case you’d like to see him in action!

Finally it was time for ice creams all round to celebrate another fantastic holiday in Cornwall!

Dog Agility Champion

Holly agility championHope that you are all enjoying the long and sunny Summer days. We had a brilliant day out at a local agility show and enjoyed a picnic with friends at lunchtime. In spite of the large lunch, Holly and Simon did a great job winning the steeplechase in the afternoon cheered on by enthusiastic members of Melton Mowbray dog agility club. Holly won some dog biscuits that she shared with her doggie friends.

Well done Holly!
