Ivyleaf Cottage is situated just a few miles outside of Bude on the upper slopes of a pleasant countryside valley. To the front of the cottage and the terrace are far reaching views across the valley and on for some twenty miles distant across to Brown Willy on Bodmin Moor, the highest point in Cornwall.

The cottage sits in grounds of approximately three acres which as well as providing a garden for the cottage, are used during the summer months as a Camping and Caravanning Club CS site. The cottage stands in its own grounds which are reserved for cottage customer’s exclusive use during their stay.
The Cottage is an attached four bedroom property (an attached annexe is occupied by the owner's parents). Bedrooms can be shut down as required to accommodate eight ,six or four people in four, three or two bedrooms respectively. All bedrooms are doubles (one with twin beds), two bedrooms feature an en-suite shower, toilet and washbasin. The other two bedrooms share the main bathroom which has a bath, shower, toilet and basin. When accommodating six or four people there is the option of having one of the bedrooms as either a twin or a double.
Downstairs the cottage has a spacious open plan L-shape lounge, diner and kitchen. The lounge features comfy sofas and coffee tables with views across the valley, the dining area offers seating for eight around a substantial table. A patio door off of here provides access to the front terrace which has outside seating for eight, a comfy swing chair and BBQ. The terrace is fenced with a gate to the outside of the property and is dog proof for all but the very smallest of breeds. The kitchen is cottage style and includes a large Belfast sink along with ample worktop space for preparing meals plus a dishwasher and washing machine. For those that like to cook, you will be very much at home here, there is a seven ring range cooker with which to prepare the families feast as well as a large fridge/freezer.
Heating and hot water for the cottage is provided by our wood pellet boiler which is situated in a boiler room that is external to the cottage. The shower in the main bathroom is electric so as to provide contingency should there ever be an issue with the supply of hot water. Heating for the downstairs of the cottage is provided by way of underfloor heating beneath the slate floor tiles and upstairs is provided by way of radiators. (Unfortunately, the wood burner is not available for customer use)
The cottage is fully equipped for our self-catering guests including those with infants and children. We provide a travel cot, high-chair and stair gates if required.
The cottage has a TV with freeview, blu-ray/DVD player, there is a Bluetooth speaker system and wifi/internet throughout the cottage. There is a good mobile signal on 02, Vodafone, EE and most other mobile networks, 3G/4G is available on the 3 Network and possibly others but cannot be confirmed at all times. There is a laser printer/scanner/fax which can be made available to guests with business needs on request.
We are happy for guests to bring up to two dogs, as long as they are over one year old and house trained (more may by accepted if very small, please call to check). The cottage has a fenced terrace to the front which can accommodate dogs off the lead but on all other occasions, it is imperative that dogs are kept on a lead whilst on site and outside of the cottage. This is because we have our own dog on site, as well as potentially other camping and caravanning guests and their pets.
We can provide a medium sized dog cage and dog washing/drying facilities as needed to ensure that wet pets are not taken into the cottage. No dogs are allowed upstairs or on the furniture in the cottage at any time, please.
A full inventory is available on request and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
The cottage is also available as a sleeps 6 or 8 in three and four bedrooms as required. Please see our sleeps 6 or 8 listing if looking to book for that number of occupants.Get the full listing »
