A man has been charged with attempted murder after a 65-year-old woman was stabbed in the face and hands in her home near Newcastle in NSW.

Police allege the 64-year-old man walked into the victim's unit at Belmont and stabbed her several times on Monday night after an ongoing dispute between the neighbours.

The man will appear in Newcastle Local Court on Tuesday, while the woman is expected to undergo surgery.
