Heligan, seat of the Tremayne family for more than 400 years, is one of the most mysterious estates in England. At the end of the nineteenth century its thousand acres were at their zenith, but only a few years after the Great War of 1914 bramble and ivy were already drawing a green veil over this 'Sleeping Beauty'. Offering over 200 acres for exploration, from Victorian Productive Gardens and the surrounding Pleasure Grounds to a sub-tropical Jungle valley brimming with exotic foliage; woodland and farm walks through beautiful Cornish countryside, where sustainable management practices promote diverse habitats and a pioneering Wildlife Project offering visitors a close-up view of native wildlife. Please visit: www.heligan.com or tel: 01726 845100 for dog policy information. Open daily all year round (except Christmas eve and Christmas day)

Tea time Your dog should have 1 meal every day around 4 o clock because this is when they get hungry. ‘Walkies’ Your dog should be having a walk at least twice a day or you could take them out even more times but not too many it could tire them out, and other members of the family enjoy it too!

Grooming You should comb your dog once a month then they are free from dandruff. You might even have to give your dog a bath when they get dirty, you can buy special dog shampoo from many pet shops but do not use your own shampoo it may harm them. 11
