The strange huts suspended on stilts on England’s Southwest coast are part of a new glamping experience that is taking digital detoxing to new levels.

Kudhva, named after the Cornish word for ‘hideout’, is a new camping concept winning fans across the UK and beyond.

Each Kudhva is an asymmetric, three-legged hideaway that sleeps two adults and offers stunning views across the rugged Cornish coast.

Kudhva is not only a design company, having created four intriguingly architectural guest pods; it is also a glamping getaway experience.

Located inside a former slate quarry in Tintagel, Cornwall, Kudhva has been left largely untouched with sensational views down the coast to Gull Rock and the Polzeath headland.

Inside, each surprisingly spacious Khudva is finished with soft bed linen and fresh towels, while the garden below grows wild strawberries and heather.

Guests also have the option to camp inside a tensile tree tent, which can be suspended anywhere on the site, and can catch a ride in an old Ford pickup truck that takes guests to and from the beach.

Kudhva is already proving popular with surfers, outdoorsy couples and families looking for an authentic getaway from chaotic city life.

Climbing, outdoor cooking, wild swimming, coastal walks, hot tubs and hammocks are just some of the experiences on offer at this little slice of paradise on England’s Southwest coast.

Rooms at Kudhva from £114 per night.
