KUDHVA (Cornish for hideout) is an off-grid campsite boasting 180 degree views of the sea on the North Cornish coast. KUDHVA allows you to detox from the digital demands of daily life and experience high-end small-scale architectural interventions which encourage wild abandon, passive learning and creativity. All our accommodation is completely stripped back for simple adventurous living and is set in a rugged natural environment offering guests a secluded haven to relax and unwind. We have four KUDHVA - two person geometric cabins on stilts, each offering their own secluded slice of this ever-changing environment, the Danish Cabin – a six berth two story intervention which is nestled at the top of our waterfall and two Shanti Tipis with direct views of the Atlantic. There are also five Tentsile Tree Tents rigged in various locations. These tents still allow you to experience Kudhva from above the ground, hanging between trees. Our communal kitchen, reception building and showers allow you to still experience outside living while cooking, eating and socialising. At Kudhva, the connection we have with nature is vital to our business. Kudhva is off-grid, we are not connected to mains electricity, gas or water. Solar power and our own natural water supply feed our site. Our focus is on sustainability, ecological abundance, creativity and passive learning. Part of our pledge is to maintain our beautiful site for future generations to come, to keep the land managed and to minimise our impact on the surrounding wildlife. Louise founded Kudhva in 2017 after 2 years of getting to know the site and exploring how best to share its magic with people. Her goal was to bring inspiring architecture into new and exciting spaces while educating and informing people about sustainability, and ecology. Kudhva not only offers people the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rugged Cornish landscape but also to stay in bespoke spaces designed in response to this environment. Louise wanted to change the way people camp and stay in Cornwall, to offer them something new and exciting, which focuses on supporting our natural world and helping to ignite positive changes within the community. Kudhva has been featured in The Guardian, The Financial Times, Dezeen, The Sunday Times, The Stylist, Weekend Journals, Cabin Porn, The Anatomy of Treehouses and many more brilliant publications.
Kudhva won a small wood award at the Wood Awards 2019.
