The World’s first waterfall-powered pub opens in Tintagel, Cornwall - UK. By Carlsberg

What if the humble pub came with less noisy after-work crowds, and more wide-open spaces? What if you only had to share it with a handful of friends? What if it was a cabin in the woods, with trees growing through the deck, and a stream winding underneath its stilt frame, tumbling to a waterfall below?


The great news is, it does exist, and you can stay here.


More information
The space

The bespoke off-grid bar and accommodation experience is nestled in a hidden, North Cornwall haven. For a limited time, guests can book to stay and sleep in their very own off-grid bar, pre-stocked with beer. Hidden amidst the willow groves, expect to trek to this secluded site and enjoy peaceful downtime.

Kudhva – Your Off-Grid Glamping Hideaway

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.

Bookings at the cabin are provided and managed by Kudhva


Kudhva (Cornish for hide-out) is an off-grid glampsite and event location with a difference. Left untouched, the site has become home to willow groves, gorse bushes and wild flowers; existing in harmony with mountainous slate stacks. The quarry pit is now a hidden lake fed by a waterfall with its own floating pontoon and the southern edge of the Kudhva is home to a stone walled wild swimming reservoir.

Rustic Charm

Kudhva allows you to immerse yourself in the rugged Cornish landscape, the slate piles frame the sea views out towards the bay of Trebarwith Strand and its distinctive Gull Rock.

As a totally off-grid site, the dream was to create a space which takes you away from the everyday, celebrates the sustainable, encourages you to reignite your creative processes and inspires a passive learning movement.
