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.

We had a fantastic 2 week holiday. Jackie and Stuart are the best host.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

We had a fantastic 2 week holiday. Jackie and Stuart are the best host. We felt more like family than guests. They are really helpful. The best site we have stayed on near Bude. It is the 1st time our family have stayed on a green site. We need not have worried. Jackie and Stuart are wonderful. We were welcomed to our pitch with a cup of tea or coffee and soft drink with a toy for the grandson. We were given information of what was on in Bude. The facilities are spotlessly clean and the site is in a secluded location. A short walk gives you some wonderful views across Bude, Widemouth bay and North Devon. The play van kept my grandson happy but he liked to help Stuart too. If you like wild life and be able to view the sky at night. With some wonderful hosts. Then you will love Ivyleaf. We are already looking forward to next year there.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

We will come back to Cornwall just to come back to this site - it really is that good! It's hard to put into words the wonderful warm, friendly feeling you get from the minute you arrive. The cup of tea on arrival is exactly what you need after a long journey -what a thoughtful touch! We are fairly new to tent camping, and Stuart and Jackie did absolutely everything they could to ensure that our holiday was perfect. They really did go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable, even providing us with a halogen heater and extra duvet once we realised we really hadn't prepared well for the British summer! Super dog friendly (we wish we could say our little dog was as 'human friendly' at times...!) The facilities are not only eco friendly they were always absolutely pristine. The composting toilet was so simple to use, and it feels a bit boring going back to the ordinary flush now we are home! Stuart and Jackie really do provide a shining example of a CS. Their warmth, generosity and passion for delivering excellent standards ensures you will not be disappointed. We will come back to Cornwall just to come back to this site - it really is that good!

Super friendly site. Jackie and Stuart are amazing and a fount of local knowledge. Loved the owls at night and our lovely big pitch. Bude is wonderful. Do walk the canal path and try the sea pool on Summerleaze beach. Plenty of parking. A really friendly town with lovely walks and convenient for sightseeing without the hordes of toursists at places like Padstow. Eating out is a treat: every meal we had - even in beach cafes - was delicious.

An ideal location for visiting Bude and nearby beaches.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

An ideal location for visiting Bude and nearby beaches. The campsite owners, Stuart and Jackie, were splendid hosts. Although we were only camping we were treated as their welcome guests. The owners were extremely helpful and did a superb job of making our short stay memorable. Another reason to remember our visit will be the novel but very effective composting lavatories! Two hot showers were available throughout. The legend surrounding tea and coffee on arrival is well founded. A great campsite and a super area to visit with plenty to do besides the lovely beaches.
