  • “What a beautiful place Glan Y Gro is to stay.”

    A peaceful, idyllic getaway in a truly unspoiled area of the country. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable.

These stunning dwellings offer a serene and romantic setting for couples or groups of up to eight friends/family seeking a romantic or action-packed adventure in the magnificent Snowdonia National Park with each of the apartments hosting one double or king-size bedroom with a well-designed en-suite, and finished with their very own balcony where guests can embrace breath-taking vistas and even catch a glimpse of the friendly otters and their young that play in the shallows of the lake during dusk and dawn. Guests can delight in a refreshing swim in the lake, which is also a popular spot for avid bird watchers with Buzzards, Herons and Owls frequenting the waters often, as well as there being Mergansers and Goosanders, and sightings of eagles. Guests may also enjoy days spent fishing, sailing or kayaking/canoeing on the lake, with use of a helpful slipway accessible by car, so long as they have purchased the correct permit for the duration of their stay!

The bustling market town of Bala lies within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and is located at the head of Llyn Tegid, Bala’s famous lake, which is the largest natural lake in Wales and home to a unique fish called the Gwyniad, a relic of the Ice Age. Renowned as a centre for great watersports including fishing, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and whitewater rafting, Bala is also the headquarters of the narrow gauge Bala Lake Railway. The town itself is steeped in history and has a range of interesting shops, inns and restaurants, and an historical Town Walk. Surrounded by the wonderful Berwyn Mountains on one side and the beautiful Snowdonia Mountain Range on the other, this is a mecca for climbing, walking, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities.
