Baddegai Holiday Cottage
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

The house is situated in a private and secluded location in the foothills of Pen-y-fan but is only 4 miles from the market town of Brecon. It is a wonderful walking area with direct access onto the Beacons along the old drovers road up to Pen-y-fan.
The property is situated in 3 acres of grounds including a lawned garden, south-facing terrace which is a sun trap and two fields which are perfect for exercising dogs. This is a great place to relax, have a barbecue and play croquet surrounded by mountain views.
The Beacons is also a great area for mountain biking or more leisurely trips along country lanes and the canal tow path. There is a shed in the garden which can be used for locking up mountain bikes and a tap for washing them off.
A stream runs alongside the garden and fields, safely fenced off, which is no danger to small children and great fun for older children.

"Outstanding cottage, for those wanting to be cut off from the world"
The cottage is absolutely sublime, in idyllic surroundings, and ideally located for Hay, Brecon, and the Beacons. It has been an excellent base of operations during the week of the Hay Festival. Unfor… More
I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay at Baddegai, had a great week at the Hay Festival and that you would recommend the cottage to a friends.
I am sorry that you found the internet and phone issues such a problem.
As we are too far away from a BT exchange, we have to get our internet from a satellite dish for which I pay a monthly subscription. The cottage is regularly full all month and we rarely have issues with going over the limit of our broadband capacity. As I explain in the email that I send guests before they arrive and in the guest information booklet in the house, if you stick to checking and responding to emails and looking online for details of visitor attractions then there will be no problem. If however you try to live stream or download large amounts of data then this will quickly eat in to the broadband supply. The few times we have had a problem before it always seems to be when there are teenagers staying who seem to find it impossible to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and would rather be on their computers playing games which seems a terrible shame.
There is nothing we can do about the mobile signal - I have looked in to getting a booster but they are not compatible with broadband from a satellite. I have a vodafone mobile and can get a signal in the drive but other guests have told me that Orange works in the house. We do have a landline for incoming calls and emergency phone calls.
I phoned you twice during your stay, once on the Saturday morning after your arrival on the Friday afternoon and once on the Tuesday morning when I had received the email from the broadband company to tell me that you had used 44% of the monthly quota since the Friday.
On both occasions I asked you if everything was ok at the house - I wish you had mentioned the problem with the shower or the back door and I would have got someone out immediately to sort it all out. In the short amount of time (5 hours) between changeovers occasionally things do get missed and so we do have to rely on feedback from guests regarding issues which we shall then rectify at the earliest possible time.
I have contacted the broadband company and I can buy a temporary increase to the high speed data allowance via a Volume Booster top up for £10 per 1 GB of data. I am now going to offer this to guests in case they need to work whilst they are away and therefore need a larger broadband allowance.
I hope that you would therefore consider returning to Baddegai at a future date.
