Fancy living the Danish way in rural Cornwall? 20th Aug 2018


Brewing giant Carlsberg UK has built what is claimed to be the world’s first waterfall-powered pub in picturesque Cornwall.

The carbon neutral pub, which has a Carlsberg Expørt DraughtMaster beer pump. uses hydro and solar power technology and has been built using local, sustainable materials.

Carlsberg teamed up with architect Ben Huggins, who designed and engineered the three-legged, asymmetrical pods at wild camping retreat Kudhva, near Tintagel, to create the cabin.

The inspiration for the design of the cabin is a Danish re-imagining of the iconic engine houses seen in BBC One drama Poldark. Built of stone, the houses pumped water from the tin mines and the process has been propelled into the 21st century with a lightweight frame structure which pumps beer.

Kudhva’s remote, off-grid location required the use of both solar panels and hydro-electricity to power the DraughtMaster.

For the build, Carlsberg brought together six strangers from around the UK who led the construction of the cabin - under supervision - for seven days, learning new skills in the process.

Designed to sleep up to six people, the cabin is now open to lovers of the great outdoors wishing to live the ‘Danish Way’ and can be booked via Airbnb.

Despite the Poldark reference, there’s no guarantee that tall, dark strangers will turn up asking for a swift half!
