“A warm Welsh welcome”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

we travelled as a large family group to the cottage (grandparents, 3 grown up children - their partners and children and a dog) we did also book the small cottage next door.
The staff were welcoming and had taken our online food shopping in for us so everything was ready for our arrival. No mobile signal was a treat and the Wifi coped with 10 of us using it at once.
Another great stay at Red Dragon

“Perfect location for a dog walking holiday!”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

8 of us stayed in this lovely cottage, for the third year in a row, along with four dogs. The house is spacious and well equipped with a great log burner in the lounge for everyone to warm up by. We did two long walks from the cottage, one via Bedgellert (great for a halfway pub stop!) and one around the lakes. Snowden is also easily accessible from the house. There is a great cafe just a stones through away that do a fantastic breakfast. Claire is always very helpful via email and we will definitely be back next year!!

“Snug in Snowdonia!”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

We were looking for a last minute break in Snowdonia and owing to a cancellation Claire was able to do us an amazing deal. We have stayed on the sight previously but wanted to upgrade to a larger property. We were not disappointed! Aran Cottage is snug and shabby chic in the best way - you really feel at home. The wine, bread, milk and chocolates on arrival are a lovely touch. The property is dog friendly and the hounds loved it. Based at the foot of Snowdonia this is the perfect location for walking. Claire will even act as an emergency contact which is very reassuring when walking in the area. The bathroom is large and practical not luxurious but perfect if you were getting a large group out on time and ample for just the two of us . If you are looking for cosy comfy accommodation then this is the place for you. A tiny minor point would be that other guests use the path which is in front of the property - if your dogs bark at strangers then this could be a problem - ours were fine though! The log burner was a fabulous addition for the cooler evenings and the beds were soft and feathery! We feel sure that we will return again and again. Thanks to Claire for a lovely lovely stay!

“The perfect location”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

As a party of 7 adults we found Aran Cottage to be spacious and very well-equipped. We were made very welcome by the owner and the location is perfect for a walking holiday.

“North Wales is wonderful and the cottage made it all the better.”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Arrived and all was ready for us, the wine was a nice touch. The children settled in straight away although we were surprised that though it is a dog friendly site there were no kennels.
The cottage is just right and everything was clean, tidy and working and the kitchen was properly equipped with LARGE pans.
You couldn't stay closer to the summit of Snowdon if you tried and it was perfect for walking, swimming and climbing.
We have really enjoyed our holiday and will recommend Red Dragon to anyone.
Many thanks Claire, Neil and all the staff.
