About Us

Glan Y Gro Bed & Breakfast is uniquely situated on the shore of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) and offers guests a place to find rest, peace and tranquility in totally beautiful surroundings. The house is set within approx 4.5acres of mostly woodland that is bisected by the quaint narrow gauge steam railway. With Bala town only 1.5miles away you are only 5minutes away from essential amenities, shops, pubs, Indian and Chinese take-aways, pizzaria and a handful of cafes. Not only is Glan Y Gro an ideal base for those wanting to take it easy away from the hustle and bustle, but also as a base for those looking for an active get away - walking, cycling, horse riding and water sports are all extremely popular and the National White Water Centre is only about 5miles away. It goes without saying that being within the Snowdonia National Park, the scenerey is beautiful. Not only are we within the National Park, but part of the land here falls within an SSSI.

Your Hosts

Glan Y Gro had previously been a B&B, but more recently operated as a holiday rental. Robert & Ann Marie bought Glan Y Gro in January 2015 and, after refurbishing the guest accommodation including dining room, re-opened as a B&B and received their first guests on May 17th.

Robert & Ann Marie hope to provide guests with a relaxing and restful stay whether they seek to partake in the many outdoor activities on offer around Bala and the surrounding area, or want just to soak up the peace and tranquility to be found here (and yet for convenience and amenities only 1.5miles from Bala town).

Between Ann Marie's practical industry experience and Robert's love of cooking food influenced by a number of cuisines (Greek/Chinese/French/Italian etc) and experience of catering in a number of situations, we hope to provide a welcoming and enjoyable experience for all guests.
