Velog Bed and Breakfast

Full Description

Velog sits within the picturesque harbour village of Borth-y-Gest, which nestles on the shores of the Glaslyn estuary, approx. 1 mile from Porthmadog. Velog is a late Victorian, three storey house, built from the slate it stands upon. Velog sits on a hill amongst houses of similar age, set away from the hustle and bustle of the busy harbour front.
We offer our visitors quiet, spacious, fully central heated accommodation, which has been sympathetically decorated and maintained throughout.

At Velog guesthouse you are offered warm and friendly hospitality from a family who enjoy meeting and looking after our customers.

  • We strive to provide our guests with a service that is informal yet professional. Retaining a warm atmosphere, which our guests often describe as being a “home from home”. So ensuring that our guests are comfortable and relaxed.
  • We offer all our guests excellent home cooked food that is traditional and can be tailored to their dietary needs.
  • Our food uses locally sourced Welsh ingredsients where ever possible, to give you that authentic taste of Wales.
  • Velog was built in 1902 from the rock and slate that it now sits on.
  • The rock from which the house has been built was once a large piece of small protruding hillock to the west of the harbour front.
  • The rock was excavated and turned into sizeable pieces from which Velog and its neighbours were then built.
  • The slate for the roof was hauled down, by truck along the Ffestiniog railway, from Blaenau Ffestionog slate Quarries.
  • Velog and its adjoining sister house were built by two brothers, who were ship’s carpenters, for their families, and it is thought that the house got its name from forming an anagram of the family names which was Glover, but of course omitting the letter r to leave glove, thus its anagram becomes Velog.
  • Velog is located just off the busy harbour front, in a quiet residential road,
  • We have spectacular views of both sea and mountains, seen from outside the front of the house towards Harlech and the Rhinnog mountain ranges.
