As The 151st Open swings into action this month, there’s never been a better time to play golf and with the long days of summer arriving, our Golfer’s Getaway offers a one-night stay that players of all abilities can enjoy. Inspired by the action that’s due to take place at the Royal Liverpool, we provide 5 reasons to escape to our spa and golf hotel and enjoy a summer break on our impressive courses.

1. Our Championship golf course

The Golfer’s Getaway gives professionals and amateurs the chance to enjoy 36 holes of gold-standard golf on our impressive courses. Situated within the marvellous Northumberland countryside, our three courses – Douglas, Standing Stone and Dewlaw – offer enjoyable challenges. A mix of obstacles, including a dry stone Ha-Ha wall and picturesque water obstacles provide highlights from a wonderful stay, while our Par-3 course allows you the chance to develop your game.

2. Our range of Dining Destinations

After a day on the course, you’ll not be short on dining options at Matfen Hall. Our country house hotel boasts a selection of restaurants, bars and lounges for you to choose from. 

Keepers, our purpose-built lodge is ideal for post-game refreshments in an informal and inviting atmosphere. Steak and seafood classics can be enjoyed within the original architecture of our courtyard and beneath our glorious glass ceiling with a meal in Cloisters Restaurant and Bar. 

For a 5-star culinary experience, Emerald Restaurant provides evenings of fine dining and stunning views of our unique parkland, while 1832 and Needham – our two deluxe bars – offer stylish locations for drinks.

3. Our Luxury spa and thermal suites

During your stay, make the most of your time in The Retreat, our luxury spa. Take a leisurely dip in our pool, while our jacuzzi allows you to drift away in your own personal oasis. Our aromatherapy room, steam room and sauna allow you to ease your muscles, reduce your stress levels and relax your mind, while our ice-cold bucket shower will revitalise each of your senses. Treatments are also available from our skilled therapists, including massages that will be tailored to you.

4. Our Bedrooms and Suites

Your Golfer’s Getaway is a stay that allows you to unwind on your own terms in our magnificent hotel. With 65 bedrooms ranging from Luxury to Classic, you will be spoilt with incredible space and comfort. Your break can be elevated to a remarkable level with a selection of ways for you to personalise your stay.

Private Chauffeur transfers from Newcastle International Airport or Central Station can be arranged, as can private wine tastings in our charismatic cellar. Led by our Head Sommelier, you can gain expert insight into wines from around the world while a late check out allows your getaway to last a little while longer.

5. Our Northumberland surroundings 

Not only does the Northumberland scenery provide a sensational backdrop to your game, but it also offers a terrific landscape to explore during your stay.

Local historical landmarks and hidden gems are yours to discover, should you enjoy adventures in the great outdoors. The world-famous Hadrian’s Wall, the iconic Sycamore Gap and the award-winning Hexham all provide memorable days out. 

A truly incredible experience, our Golfer’s Getaway offers an amazing stay in the jewel in Northumberland’s crown.
