Spring has sprung and Mother Nature is calling. And so is NSW's newest pint-sized off-grid escape. So you might want to book look at taking a quick pre-December mini getaway.

Nestled on a remote property in Cobark, around four hours north of Sydney, this cosy cabin is the work of Fresh Prince Studio. If it looks familiar, that's because Fresh Prince is the same studio that designed the Unyoked cabins which were launched in 2017 and are now scattered across NSW and Victoria.

This one clocks in at just 14 square metres, but what it lacks in size she makes up for in personality — as well as some pretty primo views. The prefabricated eco hut has been sustainably built and placed in a scenic riverside setting, promising guests an enviable dose of nature and serenity. Despite its tiny footprint, the durable design features a size-defying cathedral ceiling, fully kitted kitchenette, storage, a proper bathroom with composting toilet (with an actual shower), and a comfy two-person bed surrounded by big, full-length windows.

Designed to be completely off-grid, it's also decked out with carbon-neutral Weathertex exterior cladding, an integrated off-grid solar system and LED lighting throughout. Thermal optimised insulation keeps it all cosy on cooler nights, while specially chosen louvres and windows offer maximum ventilation to avoid any summer sweats.

And, while there's no phone or wifi reception anywhere nearby, the idyllic setting means you probably won't miss your devices for too long. The cabin is super close to Barrington Tops National Park, so just bring some hiking boots, some good company and that book that's been sitting in your to-read pile for a year, and you'll be set to go.

The Barrington Tops Eco Cabin is now available to book via Airbnb — it starts from $200 per night.
