About robert Schuijff and Eveline Schuijff
We are a family of 5, with a Dutch back ground, but all children are all born here in australia We 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 been renting out the homestead and cottage successfully for years. Many of our guest are returning every year or more then once a year as they have fallen in love with our beautiful place.

Celebrating in a great homestead with magnificent views
We celebrated with relatives a joyful 70th birthday in a lovely country property, surrounded by unbeatable scenery, and the sound of forest tranquility. It's our second stay and will keep coming back to this special place.
Stunning views and a wonderful long verandah to enjoy them from. It rained the whole time but there were plenty of toys to amuse a young child and the tea room is just up the road serving meals during the day. Comfy living areas and we were also able to bring the dogs. Only negative was a couple of issues with the bathroom, but there is an en-suite to compensate. Will be back again to explore the walking trails in the region we never got to try out!
Thanks so much for your kind review. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Glyn Newydd. Apologies that one of the bathrooms was not up to scratch. We struggled a bit to get this fixed in time because of the recent weather in the Blue Mountains. We hope to see you again !
Eveline and Robert
The property was easy to find and once you entered the main house the view of the whole Megalong Valley opened up and we spent the entire visit watching the view change. Well equipped and everything ready for our family catch-up. Highly recommended.
the property seems well away from everything however is only a short trip from town, the views are amazing and the house itself could not have been any better. clean, relaxed and has everything we could have needed for out stay.
Megalong Valley Weekend Trip
We have a group of 11 stayed in GlynNewydd Property over the weekend. Surrounding and view is out of this world. Fire place in Homestead & Cottage creates a great atmosphere. We have a great weekend away from Sydney. Thank you
Our family getaway!
Thank you for having us, abosolutly beautiful property and scenery. Loved the horses next door too. Great for a family vacation or a weekend getaway!
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
