A Traditional Christmas in the Forest

With summer now a distant memory, we all seek things to look forward to. Here’s something to dwell on, a Christmas and New Year celebration at The Speech House.

This year The Speech House Hotel is offering opportunities throughout December to celebrate: 

  • Three Night Royal Sapphire Christmas Celebration 
  • Parties and Christmas Fayre for The Festive Season 
  • A Two Night New Year Celebration 

Full details of these special occasions are available on our website, but here’s a little taster of each:

Three Day Royal Sapphire Christmas Celebration

Our menus will offer dishes from our four countries within the United Kingdom
in honour of 65 years our Queen Elizabeth’s reign. Our Three Night Royal Sapphire Christmas Celebration begins on Christmas Eve anytime from 2pm when you may check in and begin to relax with a Cream Tea in the orangery or enjoy a drink in our bar. The real celebration begins at 6:30 pm with pre-dinner drinks and Christmas carols around the tree accompanied by Lydbrook Silver Band. The evening will unfold with an exceptional menu choice and then finish with the chance to enjoy midnight mass at a local church. During Christmas Day and Boxing Day, further opportunities to indulge in wonderful food and drink will be available in abundance. For those who are feeling a little energetic, you can join Peter Ralph on a gentle stroll in the forest and join in with the Ceilidh dancing on Boxing Day evening. Whichever elements of this Christmas Celebration you enjoy, we are certain that you will be leaving on the 27th feeling fully satisfied.

The Festive Season Party

If you like the sound of our three day celebration but it doesn’t fit in with your diary, we offer dates during The Festive Season leading up to Christmas.  Celebrations includes special seasonal menus, disco nights and the availability for office or family private functions of up to sixty people. With special room rates available for all guests who attend a party, there’s no reason why you can’t extend your stay at The Speech House. 

A Two Night Celebration

Bringing in the new-year is always a special and fun time. Our Two Night New Year Celebration begins on Saturday 30th December. After lunch, if the mood takes you, we take advantage of the stunning surroundings of The Speech House by leading you on the famous Sculpture Trial. A plethora of food, music and dancing then commences with dinner at 7pm on Saturday, Full English Breakfast Sunday Morning followed by the chance to join Peter Ralph on a gentle stroll in the forest. After a little rest, the evenings frivolity begins, of course, with champagne served from 7:30 pm leading you into our gourmet evening. The party slows down on Monday morning with another hearty breakfast followed by a fond farewell until next time.
