We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . A great position for a holiday let . The deli next door more than made up for having no outside space !

Lovely, spacious cottage with lots of character and charm. Right in the centre of town so close to all the local shops and cafes, yet still quiet and peaceful. Also surrounded by hills with great walks and stunning views. Highly recommend and we will return again.

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 Glyndrs 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 Read moreour two cars close by whenever needed - on-street parking is unrestricted just around the corner beyond the cottage. Wed certainly recommend Ysgubor Newydd. Hide

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.

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.

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.

A property full of character, the only issue was sorting out parking, with no parking behind MOMA the only option seemed to be the public car park in which we would have been the only car. We were have able to come to an arrangement with the local solicitors to use their space.

Ive given wholly deserved full marks to the cottage and all that went with it so all I would add is that ahead of the holiday the emailed communications were clear and comprehensive containing all I needed to know.
