last Minute Booking
Last Minute booking.
We got married on 29th February 2020 and decided to have a little break away as we can't honeymoon till next year.
We found Red Dragon Holidays online, booked on 2nd March and arrived on 3rd March.
We book Maple Lodge and I must say it is very spacious, clean and tidy. This is our first time staying in and we will certainly return for another visit.
The staff are very welcoming and chatty. Very helpful and happy to answer any questions.
Thank you for the little touches (The just married sign and lights)
Anyone wanting a little break away in a beautiful setting then Red Dragon is the place to come 😍.
We still have two days left but I thought I would write the review now as it is well worth a 5 Star Review
Thank you again

brilliant starting place for walks
Stayed for 3 nights in one of the pods, very comfortable and everyone very friendly. Storm Brandon was on its way and the owners left us a torch and instructions on what to do in an emergency. we went for a walk and when we came back we had also been left a camping stove and tealights. Fortunately we didn't need them but really appreciated the thought. Will definitely stay there again. THANK YOU
Perfect, comfy and cosy
7 of us stayed in Snowdon Cottage for a long weekend as we were taking part in the Snowdonia Marathon.
The cottage was absolutely perfect, the location was beautiful with easy access to the Watkin path and close to Llyn Dinas lake.
It was lovely and warm when we arrived, scrupulously clean and had everything that we needed to make our stay a very comfortable one.
We couldn't recommend this enough and are planning to return next year.
Perfect for hiking
A very cute and cosy accommodation, great access to Watkin path and bus to Pen-y-pass plus a two minute walk to one of the best cafes in Snowdonia - Caffi Gwynant!
Only gripe is that the pod felt a little damp for various understandable reasons. Although the pod does have heating and the showers are amazing!
Perfect Snowdon base :)
We have visited these pods three times during 2019 with groups of up to 11 at a time and we have been impressed by the facilities, cleanliness, location and value for money on offer. Our group of work colleagues were walking Snowdon to raise funds for @GWAAC and used the pods as a base and they were absolutely perfect. They are compact but perfectly formed and have everything you need. They are cosy, spotlessly clean, the shower block is clean, warm and the showers are proper showers with great water pressure. The facilities continue outside the cabins with seating areas for everyone to use outside and bbq to cook on if you wish. The parking is directly outside, there are multiple places to eat close by and Snowdon (Pyg Track) is only a 15 minute drive. We would have no hesitation is visiting again and would recommend to anyone looking for value, convenience and cleanliness.
Very spacious and comfortable cottage
8 of us stayed here for a family break and it was ideal in terms of location for Snowden and the Zip World centres. The village is lovely and there were plenty of very good places to eat.
The cottage is very well equipped for self catering and the rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms spotless and modern.
There is a communal cabin with tables and chairs where WiFi works better.
We would recommend staying here as it was very good value for money and comfortable.
Found easily and upon arrival clear instructions via email and notice board by the entrance gate allowed us to find our pod.
Very clean, neat and tidy and perfect for our short stay in Wales.
Showers were again very clean although at certain times of the day you did have to wait for one to become free which was expected.
First night very comfortable we took sleeping bags rather than opting for the bed linen package.
Our second night was a little disturbed firstly by guests celebrating their holiday rather noisily until nearly 11pm. The community room which was right behind our pod, wasn't as advised in the welcome pack locked at 9pm to reduce this very thing happening... but at least they didn't go on all night so no real harm done.
Some late arrivals then turned up at nearly midnight and weren't quiet in announcing to their fellow travellers they had found where they were staying.
You do need to pay extra for Wifi at £2.50 per day which I was more than happy to pay but the group who were in the community room were freely sharing the password with everyone so maybe free wifi should be considered as I don't think this is the first time this has been done.
Check out was easy again clear instructions in the welcome pack and despite the minor issues with other guests it would certainly not stop us coming again and recommend others to stay.
Very clean and tidy, good service. Showers are spotless and fully accessible. Toilets and community room are all very close together so feels very homly. Fast check in. Parking could be better as you park on the road but no issue, 100% need car.
Great place for a family gathering
Thank you everyone from Red Dragon Holidays for a fantastic weekend break. Twenty members of our family hired two houses and two pods and had a brilliant time... laughing, feasting and a big group of us climbing snowdon in the sunshine. I recommend this site for anyone who loves the great outdoors and who wants to be in a perfect location for hill walking and relaxing. The accomodation is clean, well equiped and the service is efficient and friendly. This was out second visit and we will be back.
We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2019. There were 9 of us that stayed which means we had to use the downstairs 2nd lounge as a bedroom. All of us were impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the cottage for such a great price. The kitchen is a bit of a squeeze with the large dining table, but we didn’t mind. Location wise it’s perfect for exploring the area and climbing Snowdon. It’s only 200m from start of Watkin path. Although this path is not for the feint hearted! The last couple hundred metres is a climb and not a walk!
