  • Friendly site on a scenic nine-hole parkland golf course
  • A 10-minute drive from Bude’s beaches and 15 minutes from Tamar Lakes
  • Hilltop location with far-reaching views; farm shop nearby
Days of golf and outdoorsy Cornish adventures, followed by relaxing eves alongside a scenic nine-hole parkland golf course. That’s what could be on the itinerary at Ivyleaf Golf Course and Campsite, a friendly and relaxed site just off the A39 between Bude (10 minutes’ drive) and Kilkhampton (five minutes). This hilltop location with spectacular views is an excellent base for both Cornwall and Devon adventures. As well as serving up some serious golfing vibes (you’re welcome to tee off on the nine-hole golf course on site), it’s also just 10 minutes’ drive from the coast. Active sorts, scenery aficionados and fans of the surf are likely to appreciate the up-and-down hikes on nearby the South West Coast Path, as well as watersports and surfing beaches. More watersports – this time of the sailing, windsurfing and kayaking variety – are run by the Tamar Lakes Activity Centre, 15 minutes’ drive from the site. For those times where your tummy’s calling out, you may want to take (potentially, plenty of) time to browse the cafés, shops, pubs and places to eat in Bude. Across the border, Clovelly’s cobbles (25 minutes) are just as splendid for a stroll and stops at eateries. Closer to the site are Cornish pubs, restaurants and a farm shop serving fresh produce and essential Cornish pasties within five minutes’ drive. The site facilities are well-equipped and include modern shower rooms, washing-up facilities and a chemical disposal point.

Electric hardstanding pitch

Liked: What a beautful place to stay. Beautiful views and very peaceful. Had a hardstanding pitch which overlooked the 9 hole golf course and views to the sea. Water tap and hook up all within easy reach and a roomy pitch. Staff were super friendly and put us at ease. Lovely bathroom sheds with all amenities in each one so could lock yourself in a room with a shower, toilet and sink in one place. Everything kept immaculately clean. Great for privacy. Golf course for a 9 hole was a great challenge for all abilities. Will definitely be returning.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike at all

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Very nice views high up but very exposed & challenging in windy weather if camping. Nice clean & hot showers. Short country 10 min drive from Crooklets Beach.

Disliked: Wash & toilet facilities a bit of a trek & separate from the camping field. Very small site with 6 pitches for camping /campervan in top field.

Electric hardstanding pitch

Liked: Lovely little site with stunning views of the sea and rolling hills. Each pitch has its own bathroom which was very clean, bit cold this time of year though.

Disliked: Not a complaint but it was a very narrow long road to get to the site, we were lucky we didn’t meet anything coming the other way. We were in a motorhome without any additional transport, so the site was a bit far out from Bude for us,

Liked: Bathrooms were large and clean. Golf facilities reasonably priced.

Local attractions

Surfboards and bodyboards at the ready – or a picnic, if that’s your sort of the beach activity. Since Ivyleaf Golf Course and Campsite is so close to the surfing beaches of Bude, including the sweet Summerleaze beach (10 minutes’ drive), you might want to turn up prepared with your wetsuits and surfing gear or make use of lessons and hire from one of the Bude surf schools. Other spots to give yourself a good seaside treatment include Widemouth Bay (10 minutes), Sandymouth Bay beach (10 minutes), Northcott Mouth beach (10 minutes) and Duckpool (15 minutes)… However, it’s not all about the coast, as gorgeous it may be around these parts. Dartmoor National Park (an hour) also has plenty of opportunities for an active day (or a more peaceful one, if you're tired out from catching swells). Perhaps trekking among the Dartmoor ponies, horse riding and tor climbing? River canoeing, letterboxing, geocaching or making your way over the hundreds of miles of paths, tracks and open moorlands?
