Gyn Newydd made our 4 day stay in Megalong Valley the best it could be
We booked a few months ahead for 9 people so that we could all be there mid September. Firstly, the views of Megalong and the escarpment from Gyn Newydd are absolutely spectacular. Reading the visitor's books back to 2001 - no one doesn't say that, but the trio of homestead, cottage and view means you just have to say this! Finding Glyn Newydd wasn't hard and everything in the homestead was set out for us nicely. Most of the kitchen and cooking gear were in place and ready for us to enjoy 3 meals a day while exploring some of Megalong Valley. Bedroom accommodation was perfect for 3 couples and single beds were comfortable for rest of us in the cottage. The homestead and cottage setup and decor made us feel at home. We were lucky to have 3 perfect warm September days with no wind, making the comfortable lounges on the homestead veranda the place to be for most of the day. You cant take your eyes of the view! The ambiance was also great with lyre birds, bower birds, maggies and honey eaters singing morning and evening, leaving the middle of the day quiet and very peaceful. The fireplace in the homestead kept us cosy in the evening while we enjoyed the selection of music which was just our style. The great weather at night allowed us to enjoy a camp fire down in the paddock, lit by a full moon and a clear night. Thanks to Robert and Eveline for the work you put into making our stay comfortable.
Our expectations were met fully
A wonderfully tranquil experience in a magnificent environment.
A weekend away in the country; quiet, beautiful views and a very cosy house.
We stayed at GlynNewydd for a celebration birthday weekend and enjoyed every minute. We loved the fireplace and the big verandah full of sunshine all day. The perfect spot to sit and take in the view across the valley and escarpment. So much space to spread out and do nothing or a lovely area to walk amongst the bush and olive grove.
The house was very clean. The beds were comfortable and the house was well equipped with everything you might need. This is a homely house with character. We loved it.
Glyn Newydd property is situated in the Megalong Valley, a truly unique valley in the Blue Mountains. The valley has kept its rural character. there are a few bushwalking worth while doing during your stay: the 6 foot track is well know. you can walk the track either east or west from where it crosses Megalong Road, 3 km from Glyn Newydd. There are 2 wineries open most weekends along the 6 foot track. Horseriding is available at Megalong farm and Euroka. Megalong creek 3 1/2 km down the road is nice for cooling down and picnics on hot summer days. The Megalong tearooms is open for breakfast and Lunch 7 days a week.
The closest town outside the megalong valley is Blackheath: it has a number of restaurants and cafe's, fantastic walking tracks into the gross valley at the end of govett's leap road, a beautiful golf course, the rhododendron gardens, a public pool which is open in the summer months, 2 fantastic bakeries, the best butcher and lots more. A bit further away is katoomba (30 min) and Leura (35 min), both towns with great shops, restaurants and bush walks
