The Speech House Hotel
with Great National Hotels
The Speech House Hotel is a former 17th century hunting lodge set in the heart of the idyllic Royal Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Overlooking the romantic wilderness of the surrounding Forest of Dean, it makes a lovely country setting for a wedding venue.
