We have one goal in mind: offering our guests a luxurious, affordable and all around exceptional glamping experience. Emlyn's Coppice covers every aspect of your perfect Welsh countryside break:
woodland location, 5 minutes from the coast, cosy, self contained pods with ensuite and kitchen facilities, and of course at the gateway to Snowdonia, the adventure capital of Wales.
Emlyn's Coppice is set in the grounds of School House, a 19th century Gothic revival former Catholic School. The glamping site itself is named for the schools most famous pupil, Emlyn Williams (1905 - 1987), An Actor, Writer and Director, having appeared in 41 films and teleplays by the time of his death. He also wrote 20 screenplays, and 20 plays including his most celebrated work, the semi autobiographical "The Corn is Green".
Now, almost coming full circle, proprietor Nic Breeze (professionally known as Harrison Breeze) is also a former Actor and Director, having run a successful Pantomime company for many years, and having appeared on screen in Hollyoaks, Brookside, Peaky Blinders, Our Girl and many more. He also occasionally sings for his supper as a professional solo vocalist and with a tribute band playing Benny from ABBA.

This exclusive fishery benefits from really fantastic fishing from five designated pegs on the top lake. The lakes have a variety of depths ranging from 2ft to 10ft with a stream running in one end and a dam at the other.
