Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

from £10.00 to £18.00 Family + unit
Select Section

Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Why not come and take some time to see why we think Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays is the perfect place to recharge your batteries? Our site occupies a secluded rural location only three miles from Bude town, dog-friendly beaches, sea pool and abundant choice of restaurants. Our site has a tiered setting of 2.5 acres overlooking the valley and coast. Pitches are interspersed with hedges and trees to enhance guest’s privacy. Our site is regularly visited by abundant wildlife which is much enjoyed especially by our younger guests, including hawks, owls, pheasants, woodpeckers, rabbits and deer. Our childrens play area and van are a firm favourite also. We encourage and promote low impact living and look to embrace nature and our natural resources through our approach. Rain-water harvesting, biomass heating, solar power generation, composting toilets, local food sourcing and recycling are things we are passionate about and look to adopt wherever practical. We don’t have an onsite shop, bar or nightly entertainment but we do have a weekly hot chocolate evening and campfire around which you can make new friends, listen to the owls ushering in the dusk and enjoy chilling out with nature! There is also a self-catering cottage on-site.

Amazingly accommodating and meticulously clean.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

Amazingly accommodating and meticulously clean. Stuart and Jackie, and the two lovely Springer's greeted us with a lovely welcome, and we were offered a cup of tea on arrival! We choose to pitch up in a small secluded den area of the site which was a very short walk to the toilet and showers. Stuart gave us advice on local places to visit, which was great as we hadn't visited the area before. The site was very peaceful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our little secluded pitch! A BBQ and Glastonbury on the radio made for a beautiful evening! Both the toilets and the showers were very, very clean and Stuart gave is the low down on how things worked... and the showers were very good! I would absolutely recommend this site. Stuart and Jackie are very accommodating hosts! Thank you! We will be back!

Sublime views and surroundings, warm friendly and very helpful hosts.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

Sublime views and surroundings, warm friendly and very helpful hosts. Delightfully calm and relaxing. We had a great time in Bude. Stuart and his wife were so helpful and friendly. They really made us feel welcome. Nice walk to the Preston Arms and great food and ale(about a mile) Stuart explained the various walks into Bude, taking about an hour. He even offered to drive us in on various occasions and loaned us his map. We walked in and took a taxi back twice (less than a tenna a time) it was a very nice walk. Bude is a great place and we had two lovely days there. Toilets, showers and washing facilities were immaculate. Thanks for a great stay.

Great site a couple of miles from Bude, very clean, very friendly.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

Great site a couple of miles from Bude, very clean, very friendly. Its snowing today and my weekly cycle ride has been cancelled, my thoughts have drifted to the time when we will be dusting off the caravan for this years adventures, so I thought I would catch up on sharing some of the fantastic sites we visited last year (2015) & this is one of them. When we arrived at the site we were welcomed by Stuart & Jackie who could not have been more friendly & helpful, sited us and even got the chain saw out to cut some branches that would be overhanging the van. we enjoyed Bude, the walk down the canal & chilling on the beach. there is plenty of good walking to be done. Stuart offered to take us into Bude & pick us again later if we wanted to go for a meal, there is no shortage of places to eat. Although we did not take him up on this offer we may do this year, yes we have booked again! I cant recomend more than that can I?

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

This lovely site is far enough away from the nearest towns to be peaceful and secluded but is close enough to enable you to get to Bude within minutes. The views from the top part of the site are beautiful and there are secluded little spots sheltered by trees and shrubs if you want privacy. The facilities were spotlessly clean. Stuart reminded us on booking that there are composting toilets and we were not sure what to expect but they are absolutely fine, so don't be put off by the idea. Both Stuart and Jackie are lovely people; they're very welcoming and really helped to make our stay a relaxed one. We would recommend this site without reservation and will certainly return soon.
