Ysgubor Newydd is an attractive and comfortable property in a very central location in Machynlleth. We stayed as a party of four walking sections of Glyndŵr’s Way - it was ideally suited for this. Given its location we had been concerned about noise and parking, but neither was an issue. The neighbourhood was extremely quiet and we were able to park our two cars close by whenever needed - on-street parking is unrestricted just around the corner beyond the cottage. We’d certainly recommend Ysgubor Newydd.

Mr S,

This is excellent accommodation for a family with two kids. The location is spot on as the cottage is on a quiet side road just round the corner from the main drag of Machynlleth. The town itself is superb and well placed for the surrounding area. The bathroom is amply as are both of the bedrooms. The upstairs kitchen-dinning room-lounge is a fantastic space where you really feel the sense of history of the property with the wooden roof beams, but with all the mod-cons. The whole place has been refurbished to a very high spec and in a sympathetic manner preserving the character of the building. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Mr W,

Ysgubor Newydd is full of history and staying there makes you feel part of its story. It's quiet, cosy & comfortable but so close to all amenities and in a beautiful part of the country.

Mrs D,

Thank you for a lovely stay at your beautiful period property- a fantastic space that has been lovingly restored. It's in an amazing location right in the centre of town, but felt peaceful and quiet. There was lots to do locally and we would definitely recommend the cottage and the area to others.
