Venue Setting

KUDHVA meaning hideout in the Cornish dialect is a concept and an experience built around a 43-acre old slate quarry and designed to challenge your perspective and your sense of adventure. KUDHVA is "a slice of wild." An ULTRA WORLD.  We have built unique architectural cabins that have been specifically designed for the quarry rich environment they inhabit. Off-grid hideouts, raised high above the ground, standing on wooden legs with a suspended bed and captivating views down the coast. 100% off-grid, fully sustainable.

Kudhva is an off-grid campsite and event space, so as well as hosting great parties, you can also book to stay with us directly for a two night minimum stays in one of our four Kudhv. Each of which sleeps two and is placed amidst its own natural clearing, allowing privacy and seclusion without feeling isolated.

We also have six  Tree Tents, across the site; hanging gently between rocks or nestled in a glade. The Tree Tents provide you with just the necessary shelter to still feel as though you’re sleeping in the wild.

The Kudhva and Tree Tents allow you to escape the elements while being immersed in the natural environment. By going off-grid and sheltering inside the kingdom of Kudhva your priorities begin to switch away from our busy digital lives and back to basics. Standing above the ground, amidst the treetops, or hanging between the branches, you feel as though you’re being gently cradled by the natural world.

Welcome to our world. Leave feeling inspired and refreshed. #KUDVIBES

Inside Scoop

K4 is the most idyllic Kudhva in our opinion. It's nestled furthest away from the Reception Building, secluded and peaceful with views down the valley.

Louise makes a mean open fire coffee, ask nicely and she'll oblige.

Venue Features
The Scene:

Based a mile inland from Trebarwith Strand (one of the most impressive beaches in North Cornwall), Kudhva is set in a 45-acre disused quarry with 180° views of the coastline.

Kudhva is an off-grid glampsite and event location with a difference. Left untouched, the site has become home to willow groves, gorse bushes and wildflowers; existing in harmony with mountainous slate stacks. The quarry pit is now a hidden lake fed by a waterfall and the southern edge of the site provides a stone walled, wild swimming reservoir. Kudhva is also home to a Grade II listed, Engine House, built in 1870 and restored by locals in the 1970’s, it’s the only one of its kind on this stretch of coast.

Kudhva allows you to immerse yourself in the rugged Cornish landscape, the slate piles frame the sea and Gull Rock, nestled at the bottom of the valley. As a totally off-grid site, the dream was to create a space which takes you away from every day, celebrates the sustainable, encourages you to be creative and creates a passive learning movement in small-scale architecture and the benefits of wild and off-grid living.

Design:

The Kudhva (Cornish for ‘hideout’) were designed as temporary structures which don’t impact the environment and are barely seen amidst the flora and fauna. Their design came about through the desire to experience this beautiful site by being immersed in its offerings. They are covered in a larch slatted skin and constructed from insulated paged-pine panels. Natural materials line the inside, built-in storage and the mezzanine bed allow for clean crisp lines in contrast to the textures and depths of the world outside. Standing high above the ground on timber legs these cabins appear to have landed here from another world.

Our shared reception building stands at the centre of our site and houses a kitchen, epic dining table and our hot showers and toilets. 

Standout Venue Features:
If you ask nicely Lousie (owner/founder) will take you on an epic guided tour. Or sign a disclaimer and go and stand under the 40ft waterfall. Time it right and you'll turn up for one of the Sunday service sessions; a family affair with amazing wood-fired locally sourced food and a bunch of local DJs spinning tunes amidst the willow groves. 

Our Kud Truck, a vintage 1978 Ford F350 pick up is available to take you down to the beach twice a day, in time with the tides.  

Wild swim in the reservoir, or lounge in the hammock above the water.

Our wood-fired Japanese hot tub is also available for a small fee of £15.00 for a 2-hour session.
