About Aran

Whether it’s walking, wildlife or some peace and quiet that you’re looking for, Aran has it all.

Aran is characterful yet simple accommodation, located on Crawflwyn Estate. Surrounded by many walking trails and stunning Welsh scenery, you won’t be short of places to explore and things to see.

As you walk through the front door, you’ll be met with an open-plan living space. This basic accommodation doesn’t have a kitchen, but a microwave and kettle are provided. There’s also a shower room with an electric shower, sink and toilet located on the ground floor. When it comes to turning in for the night, you’ll find one double bed on the mezzanine level. Outside, there are a few bench seats for shared use with guests that could be staying in the other boltholes next to you – Sygun and Dinas Emrys.

The main car park is approximately 200 metres away from the front door. Please note you may experience some noise from the farm traffic during the day and there could occasionally be grazing animals in the nearby field.

If you fancy heading up Snowdon, the highest summit in Wales, the Watkin Path can be accessed from the next village, Nant Gwynant. There are also many other walking routes in the area. You’ll also be near the legendary trail of Dinas Emrys, and two large lakes, Llyn Gwynant and Llyn Dinas. For a change of scenery from the countryside, head to Porthmadog for the nearest beaches – approximately 10 miles away.

The small village of Beddgelert is less than a mile away with a range of pubs, tea rooms and a few local shops for you to explore. This quaint village is also known for its tourist attraction, Gelert’s Grave: the resting place of ‘Gelert’, the faithful hound of medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn the Great.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
