About this location
The North Wales region
Rhos-y-Gwaliau is a small rural hamlet situated in stunning countryside on the eastern side of the Snowdonia National Park, just over two miles from the lakeside town of Bala.
The bustling market town of Bala 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, as well as 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. An ideal location for touring all of North and Mid Wales, including the stunning Cambrian Bay Coast with the six-mile long Harlech beach, overlooked by its majestic medieval castle. An excellent base for exploring the area.
