The Speech House Hotel is a historic former 17th-century hunting lodge, beautifully renovated and set among the natural beauty of the ancient crown Forest of Dean. What better backdrop to learn a few new culinary tricks courtesy of this cookery school Escape—a perfect gift idea this Christmas.

A two-night stay for two people in a standard courtyard or cottage room is just £199 (up to a £344.50 value). As if that alone isn't persuasive enough, your accommodation features elegant country-modern décor, en suite, TV with Freeview, hospitality tray, room service, and Wi-Fi access in public areas. The hotel received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and is featured in Britain's Finest Hotels collection.

If The Great British Bake Off has inspired your own creativity, then make the most of a fun half-day pastry baking course at Harts Barn Cookery School included with this package. A cream tea for two is included on one afternoon of your stay as well as a full English breakfast among the countrified surroundings is included on each morning of your stay. You'll clear your throat in preparation not for oratory but gastronomy if you set foot in the Orangery and Bar or The Verderer's Court Restaurant, which serve a variety of cuisine.

Take a wander out into the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean with the greatest of ease. And believe us, between the bushcraft, photography, fishing, shooting, walking, archery, and horse riding that's on offer, you'll be left lost for words.
