Peacefully situated on the shore of Llyn Tegid/ Lake Bala, just five minutes from Bala, Glan Y Gro offers the tranquillity of the beautiful and sometimes rugged Snowdonia countryside with numerous outdoor activities and attractions to be found closeby
Our accommodation is perfect for couples on a romantic break and all of our four suites has a furnished balcony overlooking the lake where guests can relax. Ideal for self catering stays, each suite has its own well equipped kitchenette, stylish living area (except Vyrnwy), one double or king size bedroom, an ensuite shower or wet room. One of our suites, Arenig, can also be presented as a twin if preferred. Short breaks, including midweek stays of three or four nights, are very welcome.
Take the short stroll into the historic market town to find a good choice of amenities and local eateries with a wealth of water-sports, walking trails, cycling routes and other activities within Snowdonia National Park to experience in the surrounding area.
Named for the Arenig mountain range which sits just over the hills on the other side of the lake, Arenig is situated on the South corner of the house and boasts beautiful dual-aspect views of the lake. The luxurious ensuite has a double-ended whirlpool bath and the bedroom can be presented as either a twin or super king-size double. The patio doors lead out onto the upper balcony where you can watch the sun set across the lake. Arenig is also on the main level so no stairs making it the ‘easiest accessible’.
Peacefully situated next to the lower lakeside balcony, Drysgol has one double bedroom with lake view and a contemporary open plan living area. Look down to the lake to the South and you will soon see The Arans with their three peaks. The room's namesake is the first peak in the popular walk along the Aran Ridge. This suite will have balcony access later this year and currently guests can make use of a large outdoor space to the rear.
Enjoy stunning views across the lake from wherever you are sitting in Tegid which contains our two largest rooms along with a large ensuite wet-room. Tegid has a long stretch of balcony furnished with rattan chairs and coffee/wine table. Guests can also take dining table and chairs out on to balcony for ‘al fresco'. Tegid is named after Llyn Tegid - the proper name for Bala Lake, the largest natural body of water in Wales - which stretches for four miles down to Llanuwchllyn. Look out for Teggie - the lake's famous monster!
Vyrnwy may be smallest in size, but the beautiful views of the lake, narrow-gauge steam railway and local wildlife more than compensate. Watch Tree-creepers, Tits, and Woodpeckers on the tree outside the suite. The king bedroom has access to the private balcony and the accommodation also includes two leather tub chairs, a modern ensuite shower room and kitchenette/ diner. Named after nearby Lake Vyrnwy, guests from the North West of England such as Liverpool may already be familiar with the name as the lake is where their drinking water comes from.
The changeover days are Thursday and Sunday although we are happy to be flexible. A two night minimum stay applies and we are happy to take three or four night breaks along with stays of a week or more.
Please note that we do not cater for children and pets are not accepted.
