For a true escape to pure wilderness, come to Kudhva - an incredible wild camping experience in stunning Tintagel, Cornwall.
Named after the Cornish word for ‘hideout', Kudhva offers exactly that. In a world away from the madness of modern life, learn what it is to become one with nature as you unwind in a totally unique Kudhva or a tensile Tree Tent. Set among beautiful landscape, Kudhva allows you to completely relax, expand your mind, and celebrate everything the natural world offers us.
Built for the adventurous camper, a Kudhva is a three-legged, asymmetrical hideaway, sitting eight foot off the ground. Positioned to make the most of sensational views down the coast to Gull Rock, Kirin Island and the Polzeath Headland, think of this architectural eccentricity as the most unusual tree-top hideout you'll ever experience.
With four two-man Kudhva available, they're the ideal choice for those who want to experience this truly unique location. Blending amazing design with a little touch of luxury, each is finished with soft bed linen designed by Sanna Annoka, while your garden below comprises a bed of wild strawberries and heather.
Alternatively, soak up your surroundings in a tensile Tree Tent, which can be suspended wherever you choose. From heart-stopping heights above Kudhva's reservoir to a fairy-tale spot among willows in the woodland, make the most of this very rare chance to sleep in unbelievable accommodation in a location of your choice!
Whichever you choose, nothing beats waking in your tree-top haven, feeling as free as the birds chirping nearby. However, this total immersion in nature doesn't leave all the comforts of home behind. Three indoor showers and two outdoor showers powered by solar energy will refresh you for the day ahead, while an onsite shop sells necessities for your stay. There's even Wi-Fi in the reception for those who need the occasional update with the world.
When it comes to cooking at Kudhva, here's your chance to really get back to basics. Campfire cooking is actively encouraged, so have some fun coming up with your own camp-kitchen creations - perhaps using ingredients from your pre-ordered organic veg box, or even ones you've foraged from the woodland yourself. If you're staying for the weekend, make the most of the onsite Sunday Campfire Breakfasts. Or if cooking's not your bag, why not arrange for Kudhva's talented chef to whip up delectable fireside treats for you?
Spend your days however you please, from shinning up a climbing wall, swimming in the reservoir, or unwinding with a spot of yoga in the middle of a meadow. Take inspiration to draw, paint or write, relax in the hot tub, or feel the power of nature as you stand below the 40ft waterfall. Get your hands dirty with some land management, or simply lie back on the soft grass to gaze at the stars. And then of course, there's chilled-out music to enjoy at the Sunday Sessions, morning workouts to get a sweat on, and the Kudhva Cinema Club to make even more unforgettable memories.
On the striking Cornish coast, you're also perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful area beyond Kudhva. The Trebarwith Strand is exactly a mile away; surfers can strap their boards to the Kud Truck (Kudhva's very own American crew-cab classic truck!), and get to the beach in time to ride those waves! Wander along the coastal path for even more incredible views from the headland, or unwind with a pint in Port William or Mill House - the two pubs within a mile of Kudhva.
When the trappings of life have become too much, there's nothing better than shaking them off and taking some time to relax, contemplate, and get back on an even keel. And when that feeling comes knocking, that's when your hideout at Kudhva is waiting.
