About the property

Self-catering accommodation for groups, celebrations, families and workshops

Tyraman Retreat is a huge multi-purpose residence in one of the most scenic parts of the Hunter Valley, suitable for large self-catering groups, family gatherings, parties, workshops, yoga retreats and other social occasions. Comfortable accommodation is available for 15-20 people. Arrangements can be made for more people if required.

Perched on the side of a mountain, with breathtaking views, the retreat has a large lounge with open fireplace and a separate dining hall with banquet tables. The architect-designed, pole-framed building is surrounded by soaring verandas and rainforest courtyard gardens, in a 160 acre private bush setting.

Great for getaways with friends and reunions.

Wine tours and minibus transport can be arranged for pick up from the property. Tyraman is a good base for exploring attractions. Book your stay to coincide with one of the music and cultural events for which the Hunter Wine district is famous. Visit historic towns, crystal clear rivers and explore the spectacular countryside.

The Barrington Tops World Heritage rainforest is an easy scenic drive through picturesque farmland. Historic homes and gardens, galleries, golf courses and balloon rides are just some of the district's many offerings.

Relax - be your own guest.

Tyraman is a secluded, self-catering retreat, ready to be all yours.

Guests enjoy the residence and its 160 acre property as their private domain, with extensive rainforest gardens, dams and hillside walks. Wildlife abounds: kangaroos, goannas, echidnas, wedge tailed eagles, and fine bird watching from the verandas.

Tyraman is ideal for fun getaways with friends, or do-it-yourself gourmet weekends in stylish surrounds.

Whether finishing off a good book in the garden, toasting the sunset with local wines, or curling up by a log fire with a friend, Tyraman's is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Wonderful and Perfect for groups gathering

  • 5 of 5

The PERFECT place to celebrate my 30th birthday! The property is lost in the middle of the Hunter Valley, with no neighbors around. You can enjoy the nature, while gathering around the fire pit and putting some music.

We were a group of 20+ people, and everybody was amazed by the place. There were enough beds for everybody, and everything was there to spend a great weekend: sound system, fully equipped kitchen, a fire pit with wood provided, beds/linen.

I definitely recommend this place if you are around 15-20 people and are looking for a place to relax!

Blissful weekend awsy

  • 5 of 5

I recently hosted a Hens weekend away at Tyraman and all attendees were so impressed. It was peaceful and beautiful; a true retreat from reality. The whole house is well equipped, especially the kitchen and living spaces and the enormous glass panels madeitideal for enjoying both the sunshine and fresh air. Hosts were friendly and quick to deal with by email and I felt that nothing was any trouble.

I recommend the walk up Mt Tyraman as the views are gorgeous.

Be aware that there is no mobile reception but a landline and wifi are available. It can be easy to miss the turn off in the dark so pay attention to the detailed instructions provided by the hosts. If you have the option of a 4wd or similar I would recommend it as the driveway is quite steep with loose rocks although even the girls in little hatchbacks made it up ok.

Highly recommended for a group getaway if you are looking for relaxation in a beautiful and private location.

Amazing beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. Stunning views, everything in house we need, utensils, salt pepper, linen, towels, etc.

Floor was a bit too thin, could hear everything through the floor.

Great hippy atmoshphere with incense and beautiful rugs and curtains around the place.

Lots of games to play, two nice fire places inside and out! Great hike with amazing views!

Perfect distance to get away from city but not be too far out.

Perfect for a group getaway

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here recently with family and friends for the Springsteen concert and it was perfect for our group of 16.

The house is lovely, bright, open, comfortable and breezy - exactly what you need in the 40-degree summer heat (but I imagine it would also be divine in the winter, sitting around the cozy fireplace).

It comes with everything you could possibly need and it's ideal for entertaining with huge dining and living areas, a fully equipped kitchen and big BBQ.

The surrounds are stunning (what a gorgeous view to wake up to!!) and there are a few little walking tracks around the place if you're in the mood to explore. The property is tucked away in a quiet location, so no need to worry about disturbing the neighbours (or vice versa if it's peace and quiet you want).

A heads up that there's no mobile reception at the house (there is a landline and wifi if you really need it) - but it honestly didn't bother us at all and it was actually really refreshing to switch off and relax.

It's roughly 45 minutes from Pokolbin (where the concert was held and where most of the bigger wineries are located), so the owners recommended a mini bus company to take us there and back and it couldn't have been easier.

I'd recommend a stay at Tyraman - our group had so much fun and we're already talking about when we should return.
