About the building

Designed by award-winning Mudgee architect, Cameron Anderson, and built by local builder, Callander Constructions, Gawthorne’s Hut seamlessly combines the old with the new.

From the floor to ceiling windows to the use of recycled bricks sourced from Wilgowrah’s original Gawthorne’s Hut to handmade furniture by Wild Willow Timber Designs, nothing is stock standard. Every element has been chosen specifically to immerse you in what makes Mudgee so special.

The accommodation was absolutely amazing to stay in, the photos did not do the place justice and exceeded our expectations. Waking up in the morning and overlooking the mountains through the clear windows was a sight that you could never get sick of. Great space and definitely recommend for an escape!


'Absolutely amazing! Wow! The most incredible, unique stay with beautiful views, amazing facilities and has everything you need. Rick & Steph were the perfect hosts, and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect.'


'What a glorious spot- we absolutely loved every minute spent at this beautiful dwelling, drinking in a superb country setting. No expense has been spared on the amenities and produce supplied either. It was utterly relaxing and we will be back! Huge thank you to wonderful hosts Rick and Steph!'


'Quite simply one of the great weekend experiences of our life. Hosts that went above and beyond, stunning architecture and interior and the perfect balance between luxury and too ostentatious. We will definitely be back!!!'


'Gawthorne's Hut is such a beautiful place to stay, with luxurious finishings, amazing views and absolute peace and quiet we didn't want to leave and wish we would have booked a couple of extra nights!. We can't wait to come back!'
