Photography Courses with David Broadbent

Join professional photographer David Broadbent in the beautiful Forest of Dean & Wye Valley. Improve your technique with a themed group course or hone your skills to perfection on a bespoke one to one training day which is unashamedly – all about you… remember, you don’t learn very well if you’re not having fun!

David has a wealth of experience as a commercial and editorial photographer for the Alamy Agency and RSPB Images. One to one photo training for Speech House guests courses are bespoke sessions at a number of locations on any theme – you decide the skill area you want to work on.

All one to one photography skills sessions last for four hours, are largely based outdoors and are suitable for any level and any camera equipment.

The cost of £125 for a one to one session includes transport pick up/return to the Speech House Hotel.


Dear Speech House Friends.

It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the hotel until further notice.

We cannot estimate when we are likely to reopen but will do so as soon as the Government indicates that it will be safe to do so.

If you have a reservation for accommodation or a function before May 31st we hope that we will be move your booking to a later date in the year.  We say May 31st but obviously that may be too optimistic.

You will be able to contact us by e mail ( ) if you do not receive an answer on the phone 01594 822607. We are planning to man the office during limited hours of the day.

We would like to thank all of you for your custom and support over the years and hope that it will not be too long before we can welcome you to The Speech House Hotel.

Best wishes and good luck in the months ahead.

Peter and Gill Hands
