Alphawood - You'll never want to leave!
Alphawood is a private 13 acre haven perched on the top of the hill, with breathtaking views over the treetops all the way to the Watagan Ranges. Located within easy reach of the Hunter’s renowned Mount View and Hunter wineries, restaurants and golf courses, Alphawood is one of the Hunters most alluring holiday homes - and we know you’ll never want to leave!
Surrounded by manicured lawns and with a stunning modern pool, Alphawood is a combination of two eras; a beautiful old cottage and a new modern house, seamlessly and cleverly combined to give both character and space. The “old” Alphawood is a beautiful two bedroom cottage with two-person spa bath. It has wonderful cathedral ceilings, timber beams and feature windows. This area is fully self-contained with it’s own combustion fire and has every welcoming comfort including reverse-cycle air-conditioning. The “old” joins to the “new”, expanding to a modern four bedroom single level residence with a fantastic entertainer’s kitchen and large, open plan living and dining area with generous sofas and comfortable beds. Alphawood has an expansive, covered alfresco patio, with bbq.
Enjoy a glass of wine, whilst listening to the sounds of native Bellbirds as you take in the views across the valley or relax and soak up the sun from Alphawood’s magnificent swimming pool.
Alphawood is a truly unique Hunter Valley experience, one not to be missed.

Stunning country hideaway
We’re looking out at the Devon rain, yet again, and wishing ourselves back where we were this time last year – in Australia in the warmth and sun. We spent time in Sydney, Melbourne, and Tasmania but our favourite memories are of the days we spent at Alphawood. It was lovely to relax in such beautiful, peaceful surroundings; having a dip in the pool, and enjoying the views. The drive along a winding mountain road, gives glimpses of the scenery before arriving at Alphawood with its panoramic views across the valley. The house itself was spotlessly clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished. It had a comfortable cosy feel even though it can cater for more than just the three of us!! After the hustle and bustle of the cities we relished the solitude and the wildlife – kangaroos in the field, a wombat and a monitor lizard along the road, the birds (even the bell birds) and the wonderful starry night skies with no light pollution. We are now saving up for another visit and want to bring our daughter next time. Brenda, Martin and Pat Plymouth, England
Awesome family getaway that gives you your own space
The property was great, and we were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the kitchen was. We were a group of 12 and the service was impeccable. Which really made the stay so much easier. The house is very well equipped in the kitchen, which made all the stuff we brought useless. The design of the property actually made a lot of sense for us. The elderly guests stayed in the smaller loft, which meant the younger crowd could stay up a bit and enjoy a glass of wine without disturbing anyone. The property offers a fantastic view of the valley and is truly beautiful at dusk and dawn.
Would definitely return
Fantastic place, great location, clean with great amenities. Had the hottest day I can remember up there and the air con and pool were a delight. Would definitely return.
The house was impeccable. Designed for entertaining but still accommodating if you wanted some quiet time. The views and the pool were gorgeous. It certainly is a home for all weather, we were able to enjoy the pool the first day and even though it rained the second day we never felt as though we were "stuck inside" just a great flow. Now we've found Alphawood we'll be re-booking for our trip next year.
Great Property for a Big Group
Great property. We had 10 adults and 2 babies staying. Separate cottage is great for the babies and the house is fully equipped with everything one might need. Lovely views, great pool, quality linens etc.
Stunning home, with everything you could want, and short drive to best vineyards
We were a mix of family with 2 kids, plus 2 additional couples. The house was perfect - kids stayed in the adjoining house whilst the adults drank and relaxed in the main area. It was quite a chilly weekend, so we used the fireplace.. which was a wonderful touch. The house is well stocked with board games and dvds for the kids too. I would love to return in warmer weather to use the pool.. it looks stunning! There was lots of parking for our cars, and it was a short drive to nearby wineries. We were able to both enjoy the house and go out for the day to taste some wine. Would recommend this home to anyone thinking of a trip to the hunter!
Awesome house & location. Very secluded & private.
We organised & family get together. Alphawood was outstanding it was exactly what we were after. Secluded very private & we even took the kids out for a little bushwalk we spotted a wombat which the kids loved. We were also allowed to take our little dog. Highly recommended & will definitely be back.
Awesome property, loved the historic cabin and the new extension.
Great for a large group!
The property was fantastic - everyone who stayed (there were 12 of us!) kept on commenting how great it was. The kitchen in particular - so well equipped - thank you very much for a great stay!
