The Cheltenham Festival 2020 – Racing Accommodation Packages

Just 26 miles and under an hours’ drive from the racecourse, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy the Festival and stay in the beautiful forest.

The Speech House offer 35 well-appointed en-suite rooms with wi-fi, two restaurants and a well-stocked bar.

Free car parking on site.


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
