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 see why we choose Ivyleaf Cottage as our downshifting dream destination and take some time to recharge your batteries whilst learning more about how to do it sustainably? Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays occupies a secluded rural location only three miles from Bude town, dog friendly beaches and the sea pool. Our site has a tiered setting of approx 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. 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 and recycling are things we are passionate about and look to promote though our onsite activities program and facilities. We don’t have an onsite shop, bar, club or nightly entertainment but we can offer a warm fire around which you can make new friends, listen to the owls ushering in the dusk and enjoy a class or two of fine Cornish cider or even wine these days!

Ivy Leaf was the first stop on our eight week tour of Cornwall.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

Ivy Leaf was the first stop on our eight week tour of Cornwall. We stayed for two brilliant weeks. Jackie and Stuart were fantastic "hosts" who took the time a effort to help in any way they could. They set the bar very high and some sites we stayed on did not come close to Ivy Leaf

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

My puppy and I had a lovely time at this site. Jackie and Stuart made us very welcome, and Stuart helped me pitch my tent. It was so quiet and relaxing, and is in a beautiful area. If you are worried about the composting toilets, as I was, don't be - they are cleaned regularly and are perfectly fine. There are plenty of dog-friendly beaches nearby, and some stunning walks. If you want a peaceful, relaxing time near beautiful coast and country, then give this site a try.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

If you want a peaceful break in the countryside and near beaches at Bude, with charming, helpful hosts who are totally dedicated to making your stay as good as possible, then this is the site for you. We stayed for 2 nights giving our 3.5 year old grand daughter her first experience of camping. The weather was changeable but that didn't matter. Our grand daughter had picked up a tummy bug at nursery and at 11pm we were woken when she was very sick. This continued throughout the night and despite her age she managed with a bowl and the caravan toilet. In the morning Jackie appeared like an angel and washed the little sleeping bag and pyjamas for us. A life saver! The rest of the weekend was spent quietly but also with fun games of boules, frisbee, happy families card games, short walks along Bude canal and the Tamar lakes, and a visit to Gnome Reserve which was excellent. All in all we had a great weekend and hopefully have not put our grand daughter off camping again. We will definitely return to this site for a weekend and a week - there are lovely views to be had from the top field. Jackie and Stuart have their clients' best interests to the fore and are delightful. Thank you both.

Stuart and Jackie couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect in every way.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

Stuart and Jackie couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect in every way. We loved the area and explored the Bude canal on some lovely walks as well as the more obvious seaside. It is regrettably too far for us to go for a weekend but we will be back. Probably the best site we have visited so far and we have been to many.
