“Wonderful wedding weekend base”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We found Aran Cottage comfortable and very well equipped. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and so was the bottle of wine and supplies in the kitchen! It was an excellent place to stay while attending a wedding nearby. With ten adults and a dog it felt slightly cramped, mainly because the sofa bed is in the main kitchen/dining/living room. It would have been much more convenient if it had been in the sitting room. Parking was difficult because the cottage is right on the main road, and the dustbins take up the space in front of the house. It would be better if they could be moved into the garden or towards the camping pod area.

“What an exceptional place to stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed here last week, when we arrived Claire was very friendly and welcoming. On entering our home for the week went and explored ...... There are four lovely bedrooms which are spacious and clean, two lovely spacious living areas, a large kitchen with added bonus of a dishwasher ! ! Bread, sweets and wine were left for us on the kitchen table and milk in the fridge. A wonderful place to have a base to explore Snowdonia and the surrounding area, can't wait to return as we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Claire xx

“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.
