Previous retreat reviews
"Since spending the day with Anthony I have realised that it is okay to be vulnerable and be yourself in a world where it’s easy to lose sight of yourself sometimes. Highly recommended and believe me I’m not just saying that!"
"Really refreshing to talk about masculinity with a group of genuine guys instead of a therapist or something similar. Also really cool to learn about movement and do breath work/meditation alongside surfing."

about the event
We are excited to introduce to you Bothsides latest retreat - led by professional rugby player, Anthony Mullally.
Situated in the incredibly Beautiful and wild landscape of KUDHVA, North Cornwall. This retreat is split into two sides: masculinity and nature.
Firstly, this retreat aims to bring a group of men together to create a space for authenticity and vulnerability, discuss masculinity and to try and break down the false paradigm, whilst shining a light on the core principles. The other side of the retreat is to try and re-establish our lost connection with nature.
This is since there is an element of discontent and lack of belonging in the air currently and we believe part of this is due to our severed connection to the natural world.
Old cultures have always turned to nature in times of need for guidance, and in the current climate we need to explore both sides more than ever.

Kudhva allows you to escape the elements while being immersed in the natural environment. By going off-grid and sheltering inside the kingdom of Kudhva your priorities begin to switch away from our busy digital lives and back to basics. Standing above the ground, amidst the treetops, or hanging between the branches, you feel as though you’re being gently cradled by the natural world.
Nestled deep in the woods, with trees growing through the deck and a babbling stream winding underneath it’s stilt frame the Danish Cabin is truly immersed in nature. With walls which raise or slide to open, the Cabin transforms extending the living space onto the terraces beyond.
Its innovative design blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. A large fire pit is the only means to cook and is wholly encouraged. There is a composting toilet a stone’s throw from the cabin.
The mezzanine level sleeps four, with two bunk beds and the lower ground area has two large single beds, which can be put together to make one double. Fresh bedding and towels are provided on your arrival and if you’re lucky you might even get a visit from our resident goats.
Shanti Tipis onsite boasting fantastic views down the valley to Trebarwith Strand. They sit proudly in our freshly prepared field with 180-degree views of the coastline.Each Tipi sleeps two guests in a double bed.
They’re simple stripped back tents with hessian flooring, low profile wooden bed frames and a Kudhva candle.You will arrive to a fresh bottom sheet, pillows and cases, we just ask that guests bring their own duvet or sleeping bags.Beside the Tipis is a large fire pit for you to while away the evenings.
