The Speech House offers a great location for a family break. Situated right in the middle of the Forest of Dean, there are activities right from the doorstep. A few minute’s walk and you’re on the Sculpture Trail which also has a child’s Gruffalo trail. Puzzlewood and Go Ape are just down the road, and you can organise bike hire from the hotel to access the Family Cycle Trail, located on our doorstep. Other activities in the area include archery, canoeing and paddle boarding on the River Wye, falconry, bird and animal watching “on safari” with a local guide.
