Lovely little place situated in a stunning area, with the beach for a view. Child and pet- friendly. Defiantly recommend!
My partner and I booked this lodge as our first get away together (and my first time to Wales). We arrived very late at night, but having the light and heating left on was a lovely welcome, not to mention the small "gifts" left for us.
It's safe to say, we were very excited when we woke up, to unpack and have a real rummage around the place - there seemed to be everything we could possibly think of needing, and more. What we especially enjoyed was having dinner out on the porch most nights! The leaflets left by the TV came in handy too!
Luckily we had some beautiful weather for the first three quarters of our holiday, so we truly crammed a lot in. The longest drive we took, was an hour (maximum), to the Zoo. Within walking distance there are a few lakes with stunning views, we went to Sygun Copper Mine, again, 5/10 minutes down the round (in the car). A very quaint converted church / cafe "on the door step". Even a beach that you could drive onto... The local village Beddgelert was beautiful, again with some stunning views and insightful history. A highlight for us, we must admit was climbing Mount Snowdon, again, this was local to the lodge. We have genuinely packed so much into this week away, remembering everything off the top of my head is impossible!!!
Our cameras has been maxed out with photos, and the memories we've made here have been amazing! Not looking forward to going back to reality tomorrow!
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Maple Log Cabin :)
My boyfriend booked this, but I'm reviewing it.
First time in a cabin and it was a really good for my first cabin stay.
Even thought it was cold outside, it was really nice and tosty inside and so comfy the bed is too. I loved our little stay here, it was fab
Myself and my partner have now been to the cabin twice, we absolutely love it! With a perfect 'washing up view' over the hills around Snowden, I did the washing up every night! It was so peaceful.it's also very well situated, it was quick and easy to get everywhere ... The beach, Anglesey, Go Below, Bounce Below and many more. We were welcomed with chocolates, wine, fresh bread and fresh milk! Thank you so much for having us and we will certainly be coming back again!
Loved staying at the lodge again and liked that I could bring my new puppy. The weather unfortunately was not good but the cabin was warm and cosy and perfect for what was needed. Nearby Saracens Arms was dog friendly so we could take the puppy with us for an evening meal. Some walking in areas around cottage and walking part way up Snowdon was refreshing and exhilarating, and part of the reason for coming! Bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival, and some milk and bread. Will definitely be back at some point!
Have stayed at Red Dragon before, in the Camping Pod's, this is a considerable upgrade.
The lodge is clean, warm & cosy and has everything you should need for a stay in Snowdonia.. we traveled with teenage boys and we all enjoyed our stay. When we arrived, there was tea, coffee bread and milk and all the basics you need to get going. We also appreciated the fresh flowers.
The bed is comfortable in the main bedroom and loft space which serves as the bedroom for Children was a little low for teenage boys but not a major problem.
You would struggle to find a more central location for walking and sightseeing the magnificent scenery that is the Snowdonia national park. You can get to the Watkin path without the need to drive/park which is actually the most scenic root to the top of Snowdon.
I can tell you I will return to Red Dragon early next year, when the snow arrives, I am a keen photographer and this place is so central. I only wish the weather could be more predictable.

On our recent visit to Maple Lodge, we were delighted & impressed to find welcome gifts of flowers, wine, fresh bread & milk. The cabin was clean, cosy & well equipped, with an outdoor setting on the small front decking. The accommodation is set in lovely surroundings with plants, trees, flowers & ferns. The owner was present but not intrusive in any way. She was warm, friendly.& very approachable. The cabin is perfectly located, close to stunning walking trails, lakes, streams & water falls.
We would be delighted to return again & would recommend it to our friends and colleagues. Thank you for making our stay in Snowdonia a happy one!
