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 babbling stream winding underneath it’s stilt frame, tumbling to a waterfall below? What if it came with a view to take your breath away, and a soundtrack of birdsong?
If that pub existed, would it be the best pub in the world? Probably.
The great news is, it does exist, and you can stay there. This summer, Carlsberg invited six members of the public to come and build a better kind of pub, the Danish way. The result is this bespoke off-grid bar and accommodation experience nestled in the hidden haven of Kudhva, North Cornwall. Between April – October guests can book to stay, enjoy the Kudhva site 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 your own private party.
The sleeping area holds six beds, two bunks and two pull-out beds, with fresh bedding and towels provided on your arrival. There is an off-grid toilet a stone’s throw from the cabin and the showers and shared kitchen located at the main Kudhva campsite are approximately 10 minutes’ walk.
When booking you get sole use of the Carlsberg Off-grid Bar & Cabin as well as shared use of the Kudhva site.
Kudhva is a wild and exciting site with varied and adventurous nooks and crannies to explore and enjoy. You feel immersed in nature when you’re here. The views, landscape and rustic open plan buildings help you settle into the natural world. In contrast the Kudhva (architectural hideouts) provide snippets of style and elegance to take you away from the rugged outdoors.
Kudhva is the perfect setting for relaxed, adventurous and vital couples looking for something different for their big day. The site can be as wild and free as you like, hosting intimate campfire reception drinks or large tipis for more formal sit down affairs.
