Velog sits in a quite residential street just off of the busy harbour front, within the pretty village of Borth-y-Gest. The village is a sleepy backwater nestling on the shores of the Glaslyn Estuary to a backdrop of majestic mountain ranges of the Rhinnogs and Snowdonia.

Porthmadog our main town in just 10 mins walk away, and is a bustling late Victorian town renound for its shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and of course the famous Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways, both of which depart from the town into the National Park.
Velog also makes a great base for either walking or cycling, as we have a great many trails both a low valley levels or higher mountain levels to suit what ever level of walking or cycling you reuire.
We have magnificient views from around the village, with lovely sandy beaches sheltered by stunning cliffs. Woodland and cliff top walks all with views of sea and mountains.
We are just 1 1/2 from Portmerrion, the famous Italianette Village. Famous for its Pottery and its film location.
Velog is a family run establishment, and has been refurbished to a high standard, but is also tastefully maintained.
Come and have a lovely relaxing stay in warm hospitable surroundings, a stay to which our guests return again and again.

Clough Williams-Ellis built Portmeirion from 1925 to 1975 on his own private peninsula on the coast of Snowdonia in Wales. He wanted to show that 'the development of a naturally beautiful site need not lead to its defilement'. His lifelong concern was with Architecture, Landscape Design, the protection of Rural Wales and Conservation generally, and he strove at Portmeirion to give his ideas physical expression. He fought for Beauty - "that strange necessity". Portmeirion is owned by a Registered Charity called The Second Portmeirion Foundation. All the cottages in the village are let as part of the Portmeirion Hotel and the village also has several shops and restaurants and is surrounded by the Gwyllt sub-tropical gardens and woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. Portmeirion is open all year round for both staying guests and day visitors alike.
