“Beautiful cottage, we'll definitely be back soon!”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Really lovely, spacious cottage. We had a wonderful long weeekend. We were keen to get somewhere with no light pollution so that the dads could use their telescopes. Despite the bright moon, it was such a success. The outdoors is great. There is a play room with table tennis which the kids loved. All bedrooms are large with lovely ensuite bathrooms. Enough space for everyone to hang out and relax. My personal favourite was the view from the kitchen - such a relaxing, peaceful way to start the day with a cup of fresh coffee. Thank you so much Annabelle for making us feel so welcome, see you very soon.

“Very spacious and comfortable accomodation”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Our family booked Baddegai for the Christmas holidays and we all agreed that it was a very good choice. All bedrooms are ensuite , with wonderful view of the Brecon countryside. The wood burners, with a plentiful supply of logs, made the house very warm and cosy, perfect for Christmas. We especially appreciated the very spacious and well equipped kitchen which made catering for a large gathering run smoothly. Everything has been thought through well, from the utility come boot room to the wonderful hot tub, which was greatly enjoyed by the younger members of the family. All this and the glorious Beacons - and its pet friendly, what's not to like!

“Fantastic cottage - beautiful location”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Brecon Beacons is perhaps one of the UK's most attractive National Parks, and Baddegai is extremely well placed for some of the key attractions. In the week we spent there over the New Year holiday, we were able to walk the trail around the beautiful waterfalls at Ystradfellte, including Sgwd yr Elra where the path runs behind the curtain of the water. We also walked up Pen y Fan, close to the cottage, and along the banks of the Brecon and Monmouth canal. By way of contrast, the Penderyn distillery, located in the village of the same name around 10 miles away, provides an interesting tour and whisky tasting.

Baddegai is a very well equipped property, with four en suite rooms, spacious lounge and dining room (both with wood burners) and a large and well kitted-out kitchen. It is located in a secluded valley below Pen y Fan, has a good size garden, games room and hot tub. The house is surrounded by farmland and offers a good level of privacy. The owners were particularly helpful and even allowed use of their small, astronomical telescope during our stay - well worth the effort in setting it up if the sky is clear and the moon out, given the very low level of light pollution in the Beacons.

Our party of 8 really enjoyed our stay and can fully recommend the property, its immediate location, and this part of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This cottage is just beautiful; the location is stunning with lovely views from every room. All the bedrooms are large with own bath or shower room along with a settee so plenty of room to unwind. The living accommodation is also spacious. The wood burners were very welcome especially after a long chilly walk! Would recommend to any age, we had 3 generations and everyone lived it.

“Beautiful Baddegai!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Baddegai and we had as much enjoyment and fun as the first! The cottage is extremely comfortable, well-equipped and perfect for a gathering of family and friends. All the bedrooms are ensuite, which gives everyone their own space. The kitchen is my favourite room because it enjoys fantastic views of an ever-changing landscape. Woodburners and a generous supply of logs ensure that the cottage is warm and cosy and perfect place to sit around with a glass of wine after a hard day's walking!

Annabel and Steve are welcoming and helpful hosts, doing all they can to ensure that one's stay is a happy one. We are planning to return as soon as we can!

“An excellent getaway”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed at Baddegai in early March 2016 with 8 friends for a surprise 30th birthday party.

The location could not be better, set in a valley of the rolling Brecon Beacons. Very easy walking distance to the hills on either side of the cottage if you want to go on a hike. There is a stream you can paddle in that flows down the side of the cottage.

The cottage itself is incredible. Both old and modern, with all the amenities you need included (Wifi, cutlery, kitchen utensils etc). There are two real wood burning fires which make the cottage warm and cosy during the winter months. The rooms are great - bright and spacious, with an ensuite in each. Both the rooms and the en suites were very clean and neat on our arrival. The kitchen is large and bright, with double doors leading to an outside seating area.

Travel into Brecon for food/drink or anything else you need is 10 minutes by car and easy to get to, and there is a good pub we went to for Sunday lunch in Libanus which is a 5 minute drive away.

If you're looking for a week(end) getaway in the countryside with friends or family, you can't do better than this. I would recommend to anyone, and plan to go back myself!
