General

  • Luxury ensuite and heated pods in Snowdonia National Park
  • A mile from the closest beach at Cardigan Bay
  • Two minutes' walk from Llanbedr village

Snowdonia National Park and spectacular Cardigan Bay... two utterly fab spots for a Welsh holiday. Add in luxury camping pods with TV and heating; proximity to the famed old town of Harlech, and options for days out sea fishing, ziplining, estuary boating and steam railway puffing... among more... and all your boxes will be ticked at Artro Lodges.

Just inside Snowdonia National Park, Artro is a mile from its closest beach at Cardigan Bay, under 10 minutes' drive from the UNESCO-listed 13th-century Harlech Castle, and 25 minutes from Porthmadog and the start of the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway... making room for all is much recommended on your holiday.

All luxury pods at Artro come with a double bed and a sofa bed, a TV and a kitchen area, and an outdoor seating area with electric panel heaters. Llanbedr village two minutes' walk away has several pubs and a well-stocked convenience store; the nearest major supermarkets are in Porthmadog.

If you're venturing out around coast and countryside by public transport, a bus stop is two minutes' walk from the site and a train station within 10.

Artro Lodges operates as a 'peace and quiet' site: no noise after 11 pm, please.

    Absolutely everything. The pod was super cosy, the little heater kept the pod warm and it retained the heat really well. Bed was comfy and fit me my husband and 2 year old. Kitchen area was fully stocked and perfect for making small meals. TV was great and moved at all angles so my daughter could watch it wherever she was sitting. Seating area out the front was lovely.

    Disliked: 

    The shower was a little small, my husband just about fit in it.

    Large camping pod with with all the facilities you could need. Lovely comfy interior and front porch to relax on, was great to have your own cooking facilities, tv, bathroom and heating. Definitely a higher end more luxury pod than I have stayed in elsewhere. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location was great, beautiful scenery nearby but nice and green and quiet on the site. Could easily sleep a couple and children. Highly reconmended !

    The pod is perfect! It is very clean and well laid out. Having your own bathroom and kitchen area is ideal. I managed to cook breakfast and an evening meal in the kitchen when the weather wasn't great. We loved the location as there is so much to do in the local area. We will definitely return

    I really liked the location. It was quiet and out of the way. The pod was brand new so everything was still pretty prestineand hardly used which i really liked. It was well insulated andkept warm. It has its own shower cubicle and toilet which is a godsend for me as i hate shared toilets / shower rooms!! Would definitly visit again.

    Disliked: 

    My gripes are really small and dont have an adverse effect on my stay in the pod. The owner was on holiday at the time of our stay... so there was nobody to show us the pod or tell us the rules, no danger.. its a wooden tent. Heres the bathroom heres the bed no noise after 11pm. Easy peasy so not too fussed. Because there was nobody there i was not able to advise of the fact that the door on the pod had dropped and was difficult to close or the head adjustment on the shower had failed so it flopped while in use. Again minor and i use this as a way of informing thr owner.
    She did give me a phone number to use while she was away... i just didnt want to disturb their holiday.. they deserve a break away from business and this wasnt really a deal breaker for me.
    The smoke alarm is VERY sensitive.. which is fanstastic.. as in a wooden structure things could get serious pretty quick in the event of a fire. I did not however, need it to tell me my toast was halfway done. I was a bit scared to make toast so as not to disturb the neighbours. Again not anyones fault.. simple physics smoke rises, curved roof. Anyway nothing anyones fault.. seems like im complaining im not! Cant stress that enough!!
    Unrelated to the lodges however... i struggled with the location.. really quiet out of the way village. As such everytime we were going out to eat (who cooks on holiday?) It was a real fight for a table. Local pubs were rammed full with very few tables. So we drove half hour to Porthmadog and even there loooonnng waits for tables. So for someone such as myself who doesnt wanr to cook on holiday it was stressful.

Lovely didn’t want to leave 27/07/2018

    We stayed one night in a Pod, it was amazing, very clean and roomy. Just me and my daughter stopped over on the way to pick up my eldest daughter from guide camp. Plenty of room, really good bed very firm good for a bad back 😊. Owner friendly and chickens very friendly wanted to bring one home. Will definitely go back as a family and stay in a lodge or book two pods (when the others are built).
    Nearby beach at Llanfair was a real treasure with a lovely cafe with reasonable prices. Parking was cheap 4hrs was £1.10 😊.

    Disliked: 

    Just an aside the shower is a real bonus but it is a very small cubicle. I’m an average build 5’4” and 10 st but had a job bending down to pick up the soap (take shower gel you can hang up).

    Everything and more that you need for a short break away! Finished to a high standard. Quiet and quaint area, with 3 lovely local pubs within walking distance...

    Disliked: 

    A small thing that I would like to see changed, more for safety reasons would be the wooden step (entering the Pod). A dangerous trip hazard on the left hand side when exiting the Pod to walk down the stairs...

Local attractions

Artro Lodges is between the Rhinog mountains and Cardigan Bay, with weeks' worth of stuff to see and do for active and sightseeing days. Take a trip to Blaenau Ffestiniog for both: this is where the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway ends up at on its 13-mile puff from Porthmadog and is now also the setting of mountain bike trails, treetop adventuring, underground zipwiring and the spectacular Llechwedd slate caverns.

Meandering towards the seaside (very easy to do from around here), combine sands and castle with a day at Harlech, the seaside town on Tremadog Bay with medieval Harlech Castle. As you'll doubtless already know, the castle was the site of the longest siege in British history (during the Wars of the Roses, but you doubtless know that too); take the floating bridge over to its cliffside setting to learn all about it in the swish visitor centre.

For another seaside day, drive for 10 minutes (or take the train for 25) to Barmouth, for walks along the promenade and huge beach, or bike rides along the nine and a half-mile Mawddach Trail along the Mawddach estuary.

Must see

  • CADW - Harlech Castle (2.8 miles)
  • Portmeirion Gardens (6.6 miles)
  • Ffestiniog Railway (7.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Ty^ Mawr Wybrnant (19.4 miles)
