Spa & Leisure

Set against a backdrop of the Northumbrian countryside, the spa and leisure club at Matfen Hall is an award winning, contemporary addition that the original proprietors would no doubt approve of thanks to a gym, aerobics studio, a 16-metre UV filtered pool, a hot tub, herbal sauna, crystal steam room, ice fountain, tropical feature shower and salt grotto.

Dedicating itself to the pampering element of a country escape, the spa has five treatment suites including a dual room, where therapists use Elemis to deliver therapies including facials, wraps, massages, reflexology and thermo auricular therapy as well as head-to-toe rituals. They also use Orly nail treatments for manicures and pedicures and MAC cosmetics for make-up consultations.

Hotel & Accommodation

The ancestral home of Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett, Matfen Hall is a converted stately home that has the opulent interiors and surrounding 300 acres of land to make you feel as though you have stepped into a Jane Austen novel, while 53 rooms and suites combine traditional design with contemporary facilities and the odd four-poster bed.

Dining is in The Library and Print Room, which unsurprisingly denotes the artistic traditions of the aristocracy and has two AA Rosettes for its seasonal cuisine. For lighter meals and snacks, there is also the Conservatory Bistro with views of the golf course.
