Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

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!

If you are considering staying here just book it. You won't go wrong.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

If you are considering staying here just book it. You won't go wrong. It's a very cool site with very cool owners. Home from home! You can't beat a prize-winning smile and a cup of tea for a welcome to an unfamiliar camping venue. We were relaxed from the word go. Site instructions are clear and concise without being condescending. Facilities are more than ample considering it's a camping experience and not a B&B. We had one hitch in the form of a tap that decided to leak after we used it. Stuart had the tap replaced that day. No mean feat with one working leg I can tell you! A big thank you from us to Stuart, Jackie and the Spaniels for a wonderful first time out in our VW Van-come-camper. We will be returning when we are in Cornwall next. You can spend a lot of time trying different places to find the "right" one. We lucked out first time. Nice one!

The best places are those you fall upon and ivyleaf camp site was truly that.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

The best places are those you fall upon and ivyleaf camp site was truly that. Stuart Jackie mum Dad and dogs were more than accomadating making sure our stay was one we would like to repeat. They offered us lifts if we were going out for a meal in the evening. The site is in a good location for exploring Bude and the surounding area, and has great views over Bude bay. The pitches are a good size, our neighbours for our stay were Robins Woodpeckers blue tits pheasants and rabbits. Toilets showers were very clean. We had lunch with Stuart and Jackie and they joined us for our last evening. Good luck with their new adventure.
