who we are

Red Dragon Holidays offers accommodation of different types in 2 locations in and around Beddgelert and the Nant Gwynant Valley. Our aim is to ensure that you have a fantastic holiday in spectacular Snowdonia and have a central base to stay in during your time here. 

The majority of our accommodation is in Nant Gwynant and is set within 4.5 acres of privately owned mountainside woodland and only 300 metres from the start of The Watkin Path to the top of Snowdon, as well as opposite one of the most beautiful rivers in North Wales and between Lake Dinas and Lake Gwynant. 

Our accommodation of all types is the ideal base from which to explore Snowdonia with its spectacular scenery and fascinating mix of mountains, lakes, woodland and streams. We pride ourselves on being dog friendly on this site meaning your 4 legged friends can join in the fun too!

 The 18th century farmhouse has been converted into 3 self-contained cottages along with the detached cottage next door we have 4 cottages of differing sizes to offer you.

 Our Log Cabin sleeps 4 and offers a cosy retreat or try something a bit different in 1 of our 8 Camping Pods or 2 Family Rooms giving you the camping experience whilst staying warm and dry !

 A short drive or a 30 minute walk away you will find the pretty mountain village of Beddgelert with shops, restaurants and pubs. The village is famous for its legend of Prince Llewellyn and his dog Gelert and a walk to Gelerts Grave is  a must during your stay.  Hebog Cottage is located within the village.

The beautiful sandy beaches such as Black Rock Sands (dog friendly all year round), Caernarfon Castle, Snowdon Mountain Railway and the Festiniog & Welsh Highland Railway are within easy reach.

For those wanting adventure, Snowdonia is THE place to come; not including the obvious climb up Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales, on our doorstep you can also take part in Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Gorge Walking, Canyoning, Pot Holing to name but a few. Zip World with its zip lines, trampolines, fforest coaster and tree top adventure are within a 30 minute drive.
