Feel the force with The Speech House Hotel

The Speech House Hotel situated in the beautiful Forest of Dean has seen some famous faces nearby in Puzzle Wood...


The latest film in The Star Wars saga ‘The Force Awakens’, has just been released in cinemas with some scenes being filmed in the Gloucestershire woods.

The intriguing Forest offers a mystical, magical appeal that many filmmakers find hard to resist. It was featured in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows and is a regular location for shooting the BBC drama Doctor Who.

In response to the increase of filming in the area the local tourism board has set up a 'Star Track' hike for the area which covers its most famous uses as a location, The Independent has reported. This will be the start of a major push to attract so-called 'screen tourists' to the area, with hopes to boost visitor revenue to around £35 million over three years.

With it's prime location to The Forest of Dean, The Speech House Hotel will continue to be a friendly figure amongst all the face paint.
