  • "Fantastic property and location, our second visit and just about to book for next year."

    Property is always immaculate and welcoming, if I won the lottery I would try to buy it but with the family history connection I don't think the owners would sell at any price, who could blame them,its a gem and we really appreciate them sharing the property with us. Bryn Jones

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We couldn't quite believe our luck when we managed to buy Red Ridge after it had been out of the family for 23 years! We are more than happy to share it with people like yourselves who also appreciate such a special place and very much look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "This is a really lovely, comfortable, relaxing property to stay in, it has everything you need as a family, and the hot tub is fantastic and the views are amazing, near to the beach, and beach cafe, and lots to do in the area, from Zipworld, steam train rides, castles, slate caverns, farm parks, walks to waterfalls, and beautiful coastal towns to visit, the host was very accommodating and recommended some lovely local places to eat."

    We would highly recommend this property.

    So happy to see that you enjoyed Red Ridge and the surrounding part of Snowdonia that we are lucky enough to be a part of. Hopefully we will welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "It’s a gorgeous location."

    House is well equipped & was really clean. We appreciated the heating being on, we got really cold when we stayed last year. Only negatives are the mattresses which need replacing along with the bedding.

    We are so glad you chose to come back to stay at Red Ridge, we too love the location. We are very proud of the house and the facilities making sure we update everything as and when needed with the best and most appropriate replacements like the recent mattresses from Loaf. All of the bedding is a high count Egyptian cotton and replaced regularly to make sure that our guests are as comfortable as possible. Property Owner

  • "We had a beautiful stay at red ridge, we were blown away by the property, we could not believe the views and comfort of this beautiful holiday cottage."

    Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and plenty of room for the 7 of us (two families). We even spotted dolphins swimming in the sea and loved sitting outside on the lovely deck and took full advantage of one of the best hot tubs we’ve used on a holiday. We did have a small issue with the heating system which was resolved quickly by the owners by a quick friendly phone call. We will definitely return and recommend.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we are so pleased that you had such a good time at Red Ridge, it's truly a special place. Let's hope you spot the dolphins again when you return! Property Owner

  • "Amazing! As soon as we opened the door and saw the sea view we loved it."

    The property has everything you need. Lovely to have the hot tub and sit back and watch the sea. Lots of nice walks and places to visit are a short drive (Harlech Castle, waterfalls, Barmouth, Shell Island, Portmerion, Portmadog). The beach by Harlech Castle is beautiful and well worth a visit. Small train station just down the road too so easy to get about if you don’t want to take the car. Couple of pubs about a 5 minute drive away and food was good (Victoria Inn was lovely). Would definitely recommend if you are wanting a relaxing and quiet week away. Thank you we absolutely loved your property and it was lovely reading the history behind it. The only thing that would be nice would be to have some lighting outside at night so you could see the views but otherwise everything was perfect!

    Every time I open the front door and look through to the sea view I feel the same way! It sounds like you explored lots of the beautiful local area. We've listened to your idea about the garden and new lights are being planned so you can see it after dark, great idea! We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house in a stunning location beautifully presented, nice story that the house had come back into the family after grandparents had owned the property years ago, enjoyed the hot tub."

    Couple of things to mention,no spare black bin bags and some of the crockery plates need replacing and an extra tea towel would have been handy Bryn and Gill Jones Chester

    So pleased that you enjoyed the spectacular setting we are lucky enough to have at Red Ridge. Our family links to Red Ridge go back to the 1950's as you read about in the history. We've passed your comments on to the housekeepers and they have assured us that they will check that extra bin bags are always where they ought to be and we've replaced some of the crockery to make sure it is of the high standard we always aim to achieve.

  • "A perfect little break over the Christmas period!"

    After spending what felt like weeks researching properties to take our Christmas break, we landed on this one as it 'popped' out of the listings for us. The cottage surpassed all our expectations, it was a truly relaxing break and the property itself is outstanding. The view across the sea and the bay are breathtaking. The owners are very lucky to own this little gem and we truly appreciate you allowing us to take time away for a short while to fully wind down. There are too many good points to write about, but rest assured if you are debating booking this, don't and just book! The property has been built/renovated to an extremely high standard with oak flooring (and underfloor heating throughout downstairs), large double ovens, a large American fridge freezer with ice dispenser, a great little snug to help the kids to disappear for an hour or so, two showers, a large roll top bath and a seating area upstairs to help soak in the views. The hosts have looked at the smallest of detail and everything you need is catered for (apart from your weekly shop), from a bottle of Prosecco (which we didn't drink as we are not drinkers), a fully stocked tea and coffee station, logs waiting to pop on the burner and extremely comfortable beds ready for you to jump into! Everything in the cottage is tagged so you know exactly each cupboard contains - really useful! The only suggestion I would have is that the garden area is not very well lit - it would be lovely to look out over the garden at night but it's pitch black once the sun sets. We have been back for around 4 hours and have already booked again for next year! I have a feeling we will be continuing repeat guests here!

    Wow! Thank you for such a fabulous review. We do try really hard to make our guests as comfortable as possible. Love the idea of lighting the garden up it's on our list of things to do for sure. . Taking on board what you said about the Prosecco we've decided to arrange a Welsh hamper for the season ahead for our guests from the fabulous Y Groser shop in Harlech. Hopefully when you return you will be able to enjoy some Welsh produce. We very much look forward to welcoming you back again Property Owner

  • "Although the closeness of the static caravan park didn’t really impact on us we were initially taken aback by how close we were."

    The view out to the sea more than made up for this. We had a bit of a problem with the upstairs heating but every effort was made to rectify the problem. The owners contacted us direct to help us reboot the heating system and thereafter everything was great. We really enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to recommend the property.

    Thank you for taking time to leave us your review, the views from the house really are something special for sure. Apologies about the heating issue you had, the system is an air source heat pump and whilst it is very eco friendly it did create a slight hiccup for you and we were glad we could sort it out for you. We would happily welcome you back to Red Ridge in the future. Property Owner

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Red Ridge."

    This was long awaited as had to postpone from last year due to Covid restrictions. Well worth the wait as it is a fantastic property with probably the best holiday view we have ever had. We enjoyed the waves on the exceptionally windy days and the calm waters on the hot days. The hot tub was the icing on the cake for us and we made full use of this. The house has literally everything you need for a comfortable holiday and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It's a lovely walk to the beach where there is a cafe and a short drive out for restaurants and shops. Just one negative thing to mention for those holidaying in the next few weeks is that the house next door is being renovated and extended on the roof. It was a bit noisy at times from 8 am in the morning. The builders were very nice but did have a job to do. They couldn't see into the hot tub at all but they did have a bird's eye view of the patio area from their roof. They only work Monday to Friday and are gone by late afternoon so evenings were peaceful. We still managed to have a great holiday and hope to go back next year.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our house with a view. We adore the views and agree that in all of the places we have also stayed in over the years none of the views have yet beaten the one from Red Ridge. I must try and remember to add some more images onto the listing as I'm not convinced that they do it justice currently. We would love to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The house overall was well equipped."

    The garden and view were outstanding. The hot tub was a perfect way to end the day. Small attention to detail is required. Shower upstairs was small and temperature was hard to control. The bathroom floors upstairs and down had loose floor tiles. The windows needed cleaned on the bi-fold doors.

    Thank you for your review of Red Ridge we are really pleased you enjoyed the views from here they are, as you say, outstanding. We shall look into the shower with the temperature issue you have raised and the tiles. Apologies for the windows we do have a regular window cleaner but you may have been unlucky with the bad weather the week previously that might have thrown a lot more saltwater at the house than we usually expect at this time of the year. Being so close to the sea gives us the incredible views but can also occasionally cause the windows to suffer! Property Owner

    Beds were so comfy. Kitchen was well equipped. We were really fortunate to have good weather and fantastic sunsets. We do have one complaint and that is we paid extra for the jacuzzi and on arrival it hadn’t been cleaned or turned on. Someone did come and empty, clean and refill that evening but still unable to use until the following night.

    It suited our family of three generations very well with an accessible bathroom for an elderly Grandma with limited mobility, and a large twin room and the separate TV snug for two teenage girls to escape to. The views from the rear of the house are spectacular and we loved the constant sound of the sea that could be heard from every room.

The property

Harlech 1.7 miles.

Resting peacefully in the charming village of Llandanwg, overlooking the stunning North Wales coast, you will find the beautiful cottage of Red Ridge.

Ideally situated on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, this beautifully renovated accommodation offers the perfect balance of both coast and country, making the ultimate setting for a relaxing family escape.

Be welcomed into a charming hallway, as you return to the comfort of the attractive abode following a fun-filled day at the beach.

Leave your coats to hang in the handy storage cupboard, before making your way into the useful utility room to leave your clothes to dry.

Freshen up in the downstairs cloakroom and make your way towards the open-plan sitting/dining room, where you can kick back and relax on the plush grey sofas whilst admiring the views of the coast from the large patio doors, emanating light into the heart of the home.

Spend your evenings delighting in a delicious group meal at the sociable dining table, lovingly prepared in the fully-fitted farmhouse kitchen, complete with all the essentials for a stress-free self-catering stay.

Exchange your most memorable moments from holidays of the past before raising a glass to the action-packed days ahead, and retiring to the warmth of the snug where you can enjoy a captivating movie on the Smart TV as you keep nice and toasty from the heat of the wood burning stove.

Be blown away by three bright and airy bedrooms, including a convenient quadruple room boasting two singles and a bunk, a tranquil king-size decorated with crisp white bedding and stylish navy accents, and a fabulous ground-floor king-size with the additional benefit on an en-suite shower room, perfect for guests with limited mobility.

Discover a serene bathroom on the first floor featuring a striking free-standing bath with a separate walk-in shower, so guests can choose between a long morning soak or a refreshing rinse before setting about their day.

Make the most of the impressive veranda as you delight in dinner alfresco-style at the beautiful outdoor seating area, appreciating this fantastic setting whilst admiring breath-taking views of the sea.

When you're not basking in the sunshine down at Harlech Beach, embark on a breath-taking walk along the Wales Coast Path and uncover some of the most extraordinary landscapes along the way.

Take a tour of the Llanfair Slate Caverns or wander the grounds of the imposing Harlech Castle, before making your way further into Snowdonia National Park and challenging yourself to a more strenuous hike up the famous Mount Snowdon.

Hop in the car and head for the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can jump through enchanting caves on a day spent at Bounce Below.

Get your adrenaline going as you fly through the skies at the neighbouring adventure park of Zip World, or learn to catch a wave at Surf Snowdonia.

Visit the vibrant town of Porthmadog to watch as picture-perfect fishing boats bob happily in the waters, whilst tucking into a mouth-watering portion of the local fish and chips.

Stop by the local supermarket on your way back to the cottage and pick up some fresh ingredients needed to whip up a fantastic family meal, as well as all the household essentials.
