Why stay here ...

Ivyleaf CL Site has been in the Stanbury family for 55yrs and has been well supported over that long period, many people returning year after year.

Our location is that of outstanding natural beauty, peace and tranquillity.

Facilities have progressed over the years, with hard standing, electric and water added to the 5 pitches. We have 3 toilets and 3 showers, plus a washing machine and a Belfast sink. An elson waste point is available for use.

The CL site looks out over our 9 hole, 2,400yd Golf Course (IVYLEAF GOLF COURSE) which welcomes many golfers in their caravans every year. 

The views from the site are wonderful, looking out over the North Cornwall coastline and looking in the other direction you will see Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.

The local Beaches are a short distance from Ivyleaf. Bude and Widemouth Bay are well known for their surfing and child friendly beaches. Other smaller but beautiful beaches (Northcott, Sandymouth, Duckpool.) are easily accessible. Two local villages, Kilkhampton and Stratton are 1.50 miles away from the site, both have very good shops and pubs. Bude is the nearest town(3 miles away),and offers a good range of shops, including supermarkets, leisure pool, bowling alley and children's indoor play zone. There is a leisure centre, numerous restaurants and pubs.

The South-West coastal path can be accessed from Bude which takes you either North towards Clovelly or South towards Bocastle. The Tamar Lakes Country Park is approx 4 miles away which offers watersports, coarse fishing and 3 miles of cycle or walking track.

Please no dogs or toilet tents on site.

Advance booking is advisable due to the popularity of our site.

Compared to some, very good value.

Fantastic views across the golf course and out to sea and only a few miles into Bude make this an excellent CL. Whilst it's £16/night, more than we would normally pay, it is good value when some sites want to charge £12-15 and give you nothing. Here you can use the well kitted gym, play on the 9 hole gold course, take to the driving range, wash your clothes in the laundry and enjoy the included use of 3 showers and 3 toilets. 2 are brand new and really well appointed and 1 is older, a little tired, but very functional and please remember - this is a CL charging £16/night not a 5 star resort. We would normally refuse to pay so much for a CL but in future we might take a longer look and check out just exactly what is included. Access is up a steep hill which is narrow in places but with care it's fine. The pitches all have water, are level hardstandings and as previously stated, come with beautiful views. My only gripe is that it is not 0.75 acres. It's not even 0.25 but then that's our Clubs doing and is a pet hate of mine........why do they lie to us so many times! This is not the sites fault.

Away from it all

We arranged to arrive a day early and as the usual certified pitches were still occupied we were given a grass pitch on the hill above the driving range which still had it's own tap. Beautiful views across Bude Bay and down the Cornish Coast. Shower and toilet facilities were basic but adequate. Bude Golf Course provides quality food at a reasonable price with a two course Sunday carvery for under £10. One word of caution - do not miss the entrance to the golf course, as we did as the gate at the far end of the lane is locked. Bay Leaf indian is also good.

True Grit

We stayed here for four days at the end of September 16. The view when the fog and mist finaly cleared was good with distant sea views accross the golf course. Nice and quiet too. The toilet and shower facilities, whilst not dirty, were not cleaned during our stay. It was very wet during our stay which made the fine agregate grit used as hard standing turn to somthing that resembled cement. It was awful. We have a hard rule of no outdoor shoes inside, but the gritty grey sludge was everywhere. Nice and handy for the town and local walks though. Perhaps we would have a better opinion if the weather had been better?

What a view

Had a great stay at Ivyleaf Cl , the approach road is up a steep single lane road, there is a Caravan and camping club cl halfway up the hill on the right with a very similar name to confuse matters. Keep going up the hill and the Golf course is at the top of the hill on the left. Great views from the CL. I would recommend the Cl if you're in the habit of strolling to the pub for a few on an evening this CL wasn't really suitable as you would be walking on a busy road with no footpath, so once you're at the CL Driving is the only realistic option if you feel like going out and about. The toilet facilities and showers are basic ,
