Our history • Business hours

Velog B&B 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.

Business Hours:
Velog will be closed from 31st September through to Easter annually

Borth y Gest

For the visitor coming here for the first time, you will find our harbour village is a sleepy backwater, nestling on the shores of the Glaslyn Estuary.

You will find views across the estuary to majestic mountain ranges; lovely sandy beaches and coves hugging the shoreline below breathtaking cliffs.

More information on local attractions

Borth-y-Gest has a very lovely restaurant overlooking the harbour called Moorings. Caroline and Roger serve good, high class food and wines.
They do not have an extensive menu, but the food Caroline cooks is excellent. It is a bit more expensive than in Porthmadog but well worth at least one meal out there.

If it is a nice evening you can sit on the terrace, and take in the breathtaking scenery. Booking a table is advisable, as they are very popular
