Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

from £8.00 to £16.00 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 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!

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.

This review is for Ivyleaf Cottage Holidays

This is a very friendly site, Stuart and Jackie were very accommodating and helpful. This site is ideal for surfing, etc being just a few miles from Bude and easy to access North Cornwall and Devon with all the attractions in the area. Stuart was very helpful when our Camper Van broke down, offering to pick up my wife and children and bring them back to the site while I sorted out the vehicle recovery! Big thanks!
