About the property

Enjoy the best views in the Megalong Valley from our comfortable farm house

The Glyn Newydd homestead and cottage can be found 17 km south along Megalong road, overlooking the beautiful Megalong Valley with escarpment views.

This stunning accommodation is set on a 40 acre property which includes an organic olive grove, green paddocks with horses and an abundance of australian wildlife.

All this only 15 minutes away from Blackheath and 2 1/2 hours from Sydney.

The main house (homestead) has 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms and the house is heated by AGA/central heating and a fire place in winter, the thick walls and wrap around verandah keeps the house cool in summer.

The additional Cottage is available to rent when you come in with more then 6 people or if you are with a group where you need a bit more privacy. The cottage is next door to the homestead

The cottage has 2 bedrooms and is heated by aslow combustion wood heater in winter.

Glyn Newydd offers you everything you need to enjoy your stay. Take in the early morning sunrise over the valley and spot the kangaroos or enjoy a glass of wine watching the colors of the escarpment change to orange and red as the sun sets.

We grow olives on our property, they are grown the organic way (but not certified, too expensive for a small grower).

We grow olives for oil (Leccino and Frantic variety) and olives for table fruit (Kalamata, manzanillo and picholine)

There is usually a variety of produce available at the homestead for you to buy using the honesty system.

For those who are more adventurous and active, you can explore the property and get to know the horses or walk your dog (yes , we are per friendly !).

The valley offers a great variety of bush walks and has some of the best horse riding in the blue mountains.

We are pet friendly, your dog can have a holiday too!!

But take care around our horses, they will not tolerate dogs chasing them, so best to keep your dog on the lead near them. And the local wildlife will also need to be protected from chasing dogs, it is the owners responsibility to control their pets .

About robert Schuijff and Eveline Schuijff

We are a family of 5, with a dutch back ground, but are children are all born here in australia

We have lived in the homestead for the first 7 years we owned it and our children went to Megalong public school.

We used to rent out the cottage as a bed & breakfast.

Since then we have moved to sydney and have rented out both the homestead and cottage successfully for years.

Many of our guest are returning every year or more then once a year because they have fallen in love with our beautiful place.

robert Schuijff and Eveline Schuijff purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Well Appointed Property With Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We visited Glyn Newydd for a family getaway with 4 adults, 2 kids (including a baby) and our dog. The house is very comfy and very well appointed. Plenty of kids toys and games at the house which the kids loved. It was a very cold weekend when we visited so having the log fire was a great treat. The verandah goes all the way around the house and there are many places you can sit outside and soak in the sun and beautiful views. The walks on the property were lovely and we saw kangaroos and wombat holes. It was a fantastic weekend away and will be booking another weekend again soon

Amazing view, excellent price and great place.

  • 5 of 5

The place is set in an amazing location with stunning views on the wrap around veranda, overlooking the valley. The house and cottage were beautifully set up with plenty of space for our group of 8 adults and 2 babies. We only went for the weekend but felt like we'd been gone longer. In addition the price was exceedingly good value. Would highly recommend!

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
