“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This cottage is excellent. We were a group of 6 celebrating a 60th birthday, and it was very spacious for us. Great for 8, 10 would be cosy, but fine if you have a large group for a weekend.
2 cosy living areas, both with wood burning stoves. I would love to go back during the winter to make use of them.
The kitchen is well equipped and is great if you want to cook for yourselves.
All beds very comfortable, with cosy feather duvets.
There is currently only one shower and bath, both located in one very large bathroom (from the cottage's previous life as a hostel) There are two toilets. This may be limiting for large groups.
The cottage is ideally located for Beddgelert and the Watkin path.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed for the weekend and hired out 3 cottages and a pod. Stayed with 21 other ladies who all agree we could not recommend Red Dragon enough. Everybody wants to make it an annual trip! The scenery around the cottages were stunning and the actual cottages were all very very well-equipped, comfortable and very clean. We had three brilliant days out around Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the cafe down the road (Paula was so friendly and welcomed 22 of us for a full welsh breakfast), and most of us tried our skills at abseilling with North Wales Active. The local pubs The Royal Goat and The Saracens Head were also very good and very friendly.
Claire at Red Dragon made booking a break away for such a large group extremely easy and everything was booked to perfection. I will be recommending the Red Dragon holidays to anyone wanted to explore the beauty of Wales. I wish I was in Aran Cottage right now.

“Excellent 'base camp' for our wedding weekend”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My family stayed at Aran Cottage during our recent wedding weekend. Several other cottages on the Red Dragon site were used by our wedding party and other guests. Red Dragon provided a perfect base for us during the run up and preparations for our wedding. We did much of the catering for the day ourselves, and Aran and Snowdon's large and well-equipped kitchens were really useful.
We really appreciated the flexibility of the owners as we were not looking for a standard Saturday - Saturday rental, which many other places insist on.
The cottages are beautifully kept, the setting absolutely stunning and the staff helpful and welcoming.
Very good value too for a large group.
