Treehouse in North Cornwall with a hot tub and sea views: Inviting those with a wild heart to shed the hustle of everyday in favour of peaceful woodland, enchanting waterfalls, and outdoor living, Keynor promises a rewilding, off-grid experience in the heart of North Cornwall’s dramatic landscapes.

Overview

A beacon of adventure on the North Cornish coast, Kudhva, a magical 43-acre site with a dreamy wood-fired hot tub, invites you to return to your roots as you embrace outdoor living. Keynor, meaning ‘ocean’ in Cornish, is an utterly unique treehouse perched high above the ancient woodland, with reaching views across the rolling countryside and glittering seas beyond. Totally off-grid, Keynor welcomes you to leave the modern world behind as you trace wooden paths and twisted trees to your hidden escape, letting each worry fall to the leaf-strewn floor with every step into the wild. Your own private fire pit promises evenings cast in the dancing glow from the flames, while the bespoke treehouse beckons for deep sleep beneath the twinkling stars. Take a moment of mindfulness underneath the swaying canopy as the forest floor grounds you and the rustle of leaves soothes your soul – Keynor is perfectly placed for those wishing to centre themselves with the wonderful practice of forest bathing. Whether you wish to look inside or spend time with loved ones, Kudhva waits to offer an idyllic backdrop to your rewilding experience.

Step Inside

Arriving at Kudhva, a clay track and winding wooden path leads you through moss-covered trees and bobbing ferns, immediately wrapping you in a verdant embrace as you make your way to your forest hideaway. With dense woodland at its back and a grassy pasture in front, Keynor boasts a more open feel than the other two treehouses on the site (Edhen and Reden), making it perfect for those who crave space and seclusion in one heavenly spot. A steep ladder leads you up to the treehouse, where you’re greeted with a print of the hand of peace, marking Keynor from the other treehouses. Step inside and discover a welcoming space full of natural tones that compliment the Cornish views outside. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame a rolling vista that takes in lush woodland and the changing Atlantic Ocean in the distance. The comfy sofa invites you to spend your time curled up in front of ever-changing scenes as waves crash in the distance. A mezzanine double bed waits at the top of a second ladder, with further windows welcoming in the outside world. Open them wide to draw in the fresh Cornish air or lie back beneath sprawling skies as stars start to blink and make their way across the night sky.

Keynor is blissfully off-grid, with all of your amenities located in the nearby reception area. Here, a rustic shared kitchen promises relaxed moments with like-minded people as you prepare glorious feasts with local ingredients. With a running water supply, plugs for charging electricals, fridges and gas burners, there’s everything you need for your stay in this open-plan space. You can even pick up some local toiletries and drinks at the shop. Complimentary Yallah coffee and herbal teas are available in the kitchen, or you can fill one of the Yeti coolers to take back to your treetop escape to enjoy your meals in your own dappled oasis. The cast iron pots and pans can be used on your private fire pit, inviting you to cook beneath the stars at every opportunity. Outside the kitchen, an enchanting outdoor eating area promises memorable moments as you gather around the large wooden table and feast together. Fire pits and disco balls turn this magical clearing into a fairytale, creating the perfect spot to celebrate life in the great outdoors. Flushing toilets and hot showers are in the reception area as well and boast heavenly Reia body wash and land&sea shampoo and conditioner.

Outdoors

Surrounded by ancient trees and jungle-like foliage, Keynor welcomes you to embrace the natural world with every step. A private fire pit sits alongside the unique treehouse, creating a secluded spot to pause and let the world go by around you. Bask in the flickering gaze of the flames or warm some milk in the fire to enjoy a steaming mug of hot chocolate under the stars. For an even dreamier moment beneath the Cornish skies, book a one-hour slot in the standing wood-fired hot tub. With reaching views across Kudhva and the ocean beyond, it’s the perfect place to soak up the serene setting as you slip into the depths, which have been warmed using wood from Kudhva and enriched with Epsom salts. If your sense of adventure rises with the sun, a short walk through the woodland will take you to Kudhva’s magical waterfall, which courses over a 40-ft drop before making its way into the reservoir beneath. A wooden pontoon sits in the water, waiting to carry you to the centre of the reservoir where the utter serenity of the glade washes the outside world away. When the ground is dry, you can walk around parts of the reservoir, marvelling at the microhabitat that provides life for so much of the area’s wildlife.

Explore

With views stretching out across the North Cornish coast, allow the pull of the ocean to draw you from your forest reverie as you make your way past wood, field, and stream to reach the haven of Trebarwith Strand, Keynor’s nearest beach. A short 25-minute walk away, this wild beach promises many salt-kissed moments by the rolling waters. Low tide reveals a stretch of golden sand and rock pools you can explore, or you can simply lie back and enjoy the oceanic melodies around you.

One of Cornwall’s most mystical locations, Tintagel calls to all those with adventure in their hearts. The clifftop castle might lie in ruin, but the legends that surround the historic remnants still stand strong. This stretch of coast is particularly beautiful, with towering cliffs and waterfalls encouraging you to seek out every hidden secret. One such place is nearby St Nectans Glen. Steeped in myth and magic, this enchanted woodland holds one of Cornwall’s most well-known waterfalls, where moss clings to the rocks and the cascading waters whisper of times gone by.

When it comes fuelling your salt-swept adventures in North Cornwall, there are many toothsome options to choose from. In the pretty harbourside village of Port Isaac there are two of the county’s most celebrated Michelin star restaurants, both run by Nathan Outlaw and shining a spotlight on Cornwall’s incredible coastline and fishermen. In Tintagel, a series of cosy cafés, including a welcoming vegan café at Vega, and a collection of cosy pubs promise relaxed atmospheres and tasty local fare, while Trebarwith boasts a lovely waterside pub where you can enjoy a most magical sundowner by the sea.
