Spend christmas at the speech house

Three Day Christmas Package 2021

A traditional British Christmas in our cosy Hunting Lodge. Nestled in the middle of the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, you will be surrounded by woodland fauna and flora to explore at your leisure.

You’ll enjoy a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere coupled with superb food, a large dash of merriment, and plenty of entertainment.

Christmas 2021 will be a traditional affair, with delicious local produce and recipes from around the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. Our Christmas hotel break package includes some light entertainment, designed to keep you active but not too busy. We encourage you to relax and enjoy your time with us.

Our three day Christmas stay package starts early evening on Christmas Eve and comes to a close after breakfast on 27th December.

It includes all your festive meals, accommodation, activities and entertainment from dinner from the 24th December, all the way up until checkout on the 27th December.


Christmas Eve - Friday 24th December 2021

Arrive at your leisure, relax and enjoy the local area.

Check in to the hotel and get comfortable in your room from 2pm onwards.

Join us in the Orangery at 6.30pm for a welcome drink and nibbles.

The Lydbrook Silver Band will play carols around the Christmas tree before dinner is served at 7.30pm.

After dinner we will accompany you to midnight mass at a local church, with a dram of whiskey to warm you up on your return to the hotel.


Christmas Day - Saturday 25th December 2021

Wake up to a hearty traditional English breakfast

Monday 27th December 2021

Sadly, this is the day we would say Goodbye. Enjoy a final breakfast before checking out by 10.30am.
