Gawthorne’s Hut is a rustic eco-hut that riffs on the landscape

The metal-clad Mudgee cabin sits in the heart of New South Wales’ wine country

Guests can go off-grid in New South Wales’ lush Cudgegong River Valley at this eco-hut, located in the foodie favourite town of Mudgee.

Galvanised metal panelling and wood-lined rooms lend Gawthorne’s Hut a decidedly rustic feel, elevated by the clean lines of its interiors. Guests sleep in a bed tucked under the dramatically sloping roof, and breakfast at the long counter overlooking the landscape.

The cabin is powered by solar panels and draws its water from a rainwater storage system. Bare brick and panelling made from Australian blackbutt wood create a homely atmosphere inside, helped along by a wood-burning furnace for chilly evenings. Views over the surrounding Cudgegong River Valley peek into the house from every angle.
