A stately Northumberland country house with an excellent spa, golf and AA Rosette-awarded restaurant – includes breakfast and optional dinner

The ancestral home of Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett, Matfen Hall is a dignified country estate in the rugged Northumberland countryside. It's surrounded on all sides by 300 acres of pretty parkland and lies half an hour's drive from Newcastle city centre. Winner of a gold award at the Visit England Excellence Awards for Large Hotel of the Year 2015, among other top accolades, it strikes the perfect balance of old school British tradition and modern luxury.

Dining is a stately affair, with the grand old library providing a dramatic setting for the two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant. There's also a chic brasserie in the conservatory and a pub-style lodge overlooking the golf course. The excellent spa and leisure facilities offer an indoor pool and plenty of treatments, and the 27-hole, 6,700-yard golf course is one of the best in the country. Needless to say, Matfen Hall holds a well-deserved TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.


Deluxe rooms are perfectly in keeping with the traditional and grandiose vibe of Matfen Hall. Expect floral curtains, warm tones and plenty of space. Each room is jam-packed with luxurious amenities, including a flatscreen TV and fluffy bathrobes.

You're spoiled for choice when it comes to dining, with the elegant Conservatory serving light lunches, sharing platters and sweet treats, the Keepers Lodge offering pub-style food and views of the golf course, and the sensational two AA Rosette-awarded Library restaurant making for a rather unmissable experience. At the latter, you'll dine in the old library's stately surrounds, lit by soft lamplight and twinkling candles. Expect equally elegant dishes, such as home-smoked salmon and trout terrine, twice baked Northumbrian cheese soufflé, and warm rhubarb tart.


Revel in a massage or facial among flickering candlelight in the soothing treatment rooms at this imaginative spa. Between treatments, chill out in the swimming pool, aromatherapy room, steam room, sauna, tropical shower, ice bucket shower or the refreshing ice fountain. You can also book a range of beauty treatments, and there’s a newly refurbished fitness suite with state-of-the-art TechnoGym equipment, should you fancy pumping some iron.

The Aqua Vitae Spa is open from Monday to Friday, 6.30am-10pm, plus Saturday and Sunday from 6.30am-9pm. Children are allowed in the spa between 10am-12pm and 4-6pm daily and must be supervised by an adult at all times.


Surrounded by the grounds' pretty parkland and miles of Northumberland countryside, this stately country house hotel in the village of Matfen feels truly remote, yet only lies half an hour's drive from the centre of Newcastle. If you've had your fill of windswept romantic walks and scenic golfing, you could always plan a day in the city.
