We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the pods. After climbing snowdon all you want is to relax. I have recommended to others, who are very excited to stay here. Camping with a twist, Glamping. We had tea available, enough information to tell us where to go and what to do, wifi and blankets and pillows. The rooms were also warm and shower room was very clean. There is room for a BBQ and a get together if a large group go. What's not to like for a night or 2?! We would stay here again :) thanks

I stayed in one of the camping pods for 3 nights as a base for exploring and climbing Snowdon.

Our arrival was a smooth process and constant contact with the owner had ensured we had all the info we needed. We arrived with our own food (nearest supermarket is 9 miles away) and set up base. The pods are surprisingly roomy for two people, bed linen, kettle and kitchenette area were all clean as were the shower block.

The village of Beddgelert was lovely, a few nice places to eat in the evening, not too far a drive back either.

All in all it was a great place to stay on a budget to explore the local surroundings. We will definitely stay here if visiting the area again!

We have stayed in a variety of holiday accommodation over the years, this was the most disappointing. On arrival we were met with an overwhelming smell of dampness and "wet dog". We had to search for the bed linen for use on the sofa bed and the television/sky box was unconnected and took my husband over an hour to reconnect. The sofa bed and flooring were covered in animal hair, thankfully we do not suffer from any allergies. Our mattress was extremely lumpy, the duvet and pillows smelt also of damp. Only one set of drawers, which were shabby and dirty inside. There was a faded plastic table and chairs to one corner of the outside area that certainly didn't look welcoming and had seen better days.

We left the cottage a day early due to our disappointment and discomfort. We emailed Red Dragon with our comments and have not received any response.

Generally a neglected cottage that has the potential to be cosy with a little investment (replace mattress, bed linen, sofa bed) and regular cleaning.

Optimistic to fit four in this cottage.

Shame about lack of customer service.

Amazing camping pods, we didn't want to leave. The staff are really friendly and helpful also. Have already recommended to friends and would definitely stay here again!! Also, Claire prepared an amazing packed lunch for us which was perfect for our walk up Snowdon. The pods are great value for money.

Group of around 20 of us stayed in these cottages/cabins weekend of 11th-13th July for a hen do. I was in Arran cottage and it was lovely, very spacious and instantly homely. It was really clean and all a group of ladies needed for a good weekend! The area was lovely and quiet (except perhaps us in the evenings!) and it was a perfectly comfortable night sleep, though very unusual waking up to the sound of sheep being townies! Beddgelert is a lovely little village to visit, and we also travelled out to Betws y Coed with some stunning views en route. Would recommend these cottages to anybody wanting any type of break - though be warned there isn't a cashpoint local and the nearest supermarket is about 9 miles away so come prepared!

Also - no phone reception though wifi can be purchased for the duration of your stay. Would happily return again :)
