    . Sheila and Stuart are great hosts and very approachable. The place was spotless and everything provided was immaculate. Just wished we had booked for a week. We highly recommend the dragon pod.

  • "What a wonderful little gem."

    Dragon pod has been outfitted with every little convenience you need for a comfortable stay. The bed is so nice I didn't miss mine at home once. I had everything I needed. Even the stormy weather didn't ruin my week. Thank you Sheila and Stewart for being wonderful hosts and I hope to see you both again.

  • "A lovely pod based in a great location when visiting scenic places within North Wales."

    We had a warm welcome which was a great start to a weekend break away. The pod is very modern and clean and contains a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, stove and kettle. The Hot tub is also an added bonus and the outdoor area around it. Would 100% recommend to a friend or family member and would stay there again!

    Owners are lovely and can not be more helpful and welcoming. The only trouble you will have is that you will want to have a dragon pod of your own at home after staying. If you’re looking for that perfect break away from it all surrounded by natural beauty in stunning accommodation this is it.

  • "The POD was amazing, spotlessly clean and very well equipped."

    Unfortunately it was too warm to use the log burner but we made good use of the hot tub and the gas BBQ. Excellent hosts were at hand if needed but everything was well organised so no help needed. Great location very near Caernarfon with lovely views of the coast and if you walk up a well made path for 10 mins you can get a great view of Snowdon too!
