  • "FABULOUS..."

    If your looking for great walks scenery. Quiet and peaceful. A fab host in Beatrice. Comfortable and cosy apartment right on lake. We would like to keep it a secret but fabulous place for us to stay and recharge our energies. Even if weather was against us. We felt so lucky to stay there.

    Hello Julie, Thank you very much for your sincere review. I am so glad that the weather did not deter you from having a great stay and finding your apartment comfortable and cosy. Kind regards, Beatrice Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous short stay in Tegid this October."

    It was just warm enough for me to swim in the lake, and the apartment balcony leads directly onto the lakeshore. Magical! The self-contained apartment is very well set up, with a separate bedroom, kitchenette/lounge area and wetroom with a large shower. Both the bedroom and the lounge open onto the covered balcony, with chairs outside so you can enjoy the glorious air and views. Owner Beatrice is really helpful and very welcoming. There's tea, coffee, milk and biccies to greet you on arrival. We tend to eat main meals in town (can recommend Cafe Cyffnod and Plas yn Dre) and the multi-oven and toaster are more than sufficient for breakfast and light meals. You can hear some sounds from the other apartments and above, but it's never been intrusive or a problem - and we've stayed in different apartments here for many years! There's plenty of parking away from the road, zero traffic noise and all the comforts of home. At night, with the window open, the only sounds are the water in the lake, the wind in the trees, and wildlife. It's fabulous.

    Hello Rowena Thank you very much for your very positive in-depth review of Tegid apartment. It is greatly appreciated, and of course pleased that you had another enjoyable and satisfying stay. Yes, it is wonderful to be able to swim in Lake Bala - in October! I look forward in greeting you on your next visit to Glan y Gro. Kind regards, Beatrice Property Owner

  • "Really lovely, friendly hosts, amazing location and views."

    We had a great stay, visiting the nearby mountain ranges for hiking interspersed with relaxing on our balcony looking over the lake and swimming. There isn't a hob in the apartment, only a combination microwave and oven or slow cooker. We took our pressure cooker, as we're vegetarian and we were perfectly content. There are shops a mile or two away in Bala town, with a really friendly and well stocked green grocers. We would love to come back again.

    Hello Emma Thank you for writing a review. We are so pleased that you have enjoyed a relaxing stay at Tegid Apartment. It is a wonderful feeling to swim in the Lake. We hope to welcome you back again. Best regards Beatrice Property Owner

  • "Another lovely stay by the lake - and our first time in the Tegid apartment."

    Entirely comfortable and spacious; great facilities. The internet connection has definitely improved! Lovely to meet the new host, Beatrice, and the gardens are looking much happier. A great place to stay if you're a swimmer like me - even though the weather wasn't too warm the water was wonderfully fresh! (Although I admit I missed having a long soak in a hot bath after a swim...) The access to the lake from this apartment is superb, just a few steps away from the balcony. And I really appreciated the drip-rack to hang my soggy gear out to dry :-) Will definitely be back - thoroughly recommended.

    Hello Rowena, Thank you for taking the time to write a much detailed review. Your review is very much appreciated, especially when you are a returning guest. Albeit in a different apartment. Thank you for choosing us again. Best regards, Beatrice. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    Our hosts were fantastic, so friendly, pleasant and helpful. The apartment was just what we needed for a much needed relaxing break. The apartment was very comfortable with the balcony becoming a regular place to sit with a drink each evening. The owners, having not owned the property for many months, are working on the garden that was apparently very overgrown, and is already a place to wander by the lakeside. There is also a summerhouse looking over the lake and woodland, with the Bala small gauge railway running directly behind the property. A place that we will be staying again for sure!

    Hello Gary, Thank you very much for taking time to write a kind review. We are delighted that you both enjoyed your stay. Most importantly to us is that you both were able to relax and enjoy the Lakeside. Looking forward to your next visit. Best regards, Beatrice. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely 5 night stay at Tegid."

    We were met by Briggitte when we arrived, who showed us to our apartment. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. It had amazing views across the lake from both sets of patio doors- one from the bedroom and one from the lounge/dining area. Spacious parking facilities. There was perfectly adequate kitchen equipment for us to make breakfast and a couple of basic dinners. An omelette maker and slowcooker were provided but we didn't use them. The combination oven was easy to use and cooked everything nicely. No hob in the apartment, but a Nespresso coffee machine, toaster and kettle were there. Lots of lovely hot water for showers after a long day walking, and a very comfy bed. Easy to walk into Bala town and we had dinner one night at the John Lewis hotel -which was in easy walking distance. All in all a lovely apartment, in a fabulous location. Highly recommended. We plan to return.

    Thank you very much for the excellent feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back, kayak and all. Kind regards, Beatrice Property Owner

Glan Y Gro Apartments

Set in a spectacular position on the lakefront of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), a Site of Specific Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation, in Gwynedd and the Snowdonia National Park is the Glan Y Gro Apartments. Encompassed by 4.5 acres of woodland, these apartments make lovely bases from which to explore this scenic area, whether you’re a couple, a group of couples, or friends getting together but enjoying your own space throughout your break. Each with a balcony of their own, the apartments are ideal for avid birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts, with an abundance of wildlife to gaze upon, including otters and their young splashing around the shallows, buzzards, herons and owls that frequent the area, and you may even catch sightings of mergansers and goosanders, and eagles. We are conveniently located where a few points of interest are no more than one hour’s drive away from us. Take advantage of your surroundings with a swim in the lake, or a day of fishing, sailing or kayaking/canoeing, as long as you have purchased the correct permit! The well-known Bala Lake Railway is within reach and a popular attraction in the area, which happens to pass through Glan Y Gro. Bala is just a stone’s throw away, while the towns of Barmouth, Dolgellau and the former mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog are just a scenic drive away. History buffs will love day trips to National Trust’s Ysbyty Ifan, Conwy and Caernarfon’s castles and Rhug Chapel, as well as the unique Italianate village of Portmeirion. Thrill-seekers however, may be more interested in an action-packed day at Zip World Slate Caverns and reaching the summit of the iconic Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon). The area as a whole makes the perfect outdoor experience, with a wealth of elite walking paths and trails, including The Arans, the Arenigs and the Berwyns nearby. For a welcoming break where no two days look the same, book the Glan Y Gro Apartments.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
