“Lovely cosy cottage”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a great stay at Aran cottage, there was plenty of space for us with 6 adults and 2 dogs. Might be a bit of a squeeze for many more adults, particularly as one of the double rooms is really quite small. The cottage has everything you could need and the owners make you feel very welcome with a bottle of wine, bread, milk and a few chocs waiting for us when we arrived. The location is beautiful and we went for a lovely walk around the nearby lake. It is a short drive to Beddgelert but definitely not walking distance. The only thing that let the cottage down slightly was the standard of the bathrooms, there's everything you need but they aren't quite up to the quality of the rest of the cottage. We had a fantastic time and may well be back in the future!

“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A great place to stay, beautiful cottage with some great veiws. The booking was really easy, Claire was really helpful and informative, even putting our shopping away prior to our arrival.
The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The only slight problem is all 9 in our party fitting around the dinning table, but we coped.
Have already recommended to friends and will be returning.

“Excellent Cottage!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We rented Aran Cottage for a weekend in April as a group of 6 adults and 4 children. The cottage was of a fantastic standard and had everything we needed. We had an infant in our party and Claire was most helpful in providing a travel cot, high chair and stair gate. The open plan kitchen and living area is just fantastic. The cottage is also in an excellent location. I would highly recommend Aran Cottage to anyone who thinking of booking.

Superb location and beautiful, charming accommodation. 10 of us stayed over and had a wonderful time. Short walk to start climb up Snowdon via Watkins pass.

“Great Location, Great Cottage”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Had a fab time in this cottage with 6 friends for the weekend. Very convenient for the Watkin Path and some other nice walks around too. The house itself is great and the rooms are all lovely. It's really easy to find as it's right on the main road. Communication with the owners beforehand was great, they were very helpful with local knowledge. There is no phone service at all which is great and there is a payphone 300m away if needed.

I wouldn't recommend it for 10 people as the sofa bed is in the kitchen/dinner/living room and not in the separate lounge.

The only thing that let the cottage down a bit was that the kitchen crockery wasn't very clean and there were mouldy tea-bags in the teapot when we arrived. This was a shame as everything else was great.

“Very good”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Lovely place in a great location close to Beddgelert. The cottage has everything you need. We visited in the bleakest weekend in January, so it was very cold, but once you got a fire going it was lovely and cosy. Also let us take the dogs too, so was great for all the family. Friendly owners, very accommodating. No signal available for mobile phones, but that's not necessarily a bad thing!

“A perfect place to spend your holidays”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Second time in the Red Dragon. First in the Log Cabin, this time in the Aran Cottage which was perfect for our group of eight with a baby. Comfy home with loads of space, ideal for the rainy days, great kitchen for long evening talks, fire places, ideal position to explore the environment on foot without the need for a car, lovely owners who put in the extra effort to make our stay there perfect. We will come again.
