A winter of wellness awaits

Set in the heart of the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, a stone’s throw from the quaint villages of Corbridge and Hexham, a sanctuary of tranquillity, The Retreat, awaits on the magnificent and grand Matfen Hall estate, providing the perfect Northumberland spa break for those near and far.

A visit to The Retreat isn’t simply an hour or two of relaxation away from the stresses of everyday life; it’s the start of a journey for your mind, body and spirit – a journey for yourself, or one to enjoy as a spa weekend with friends and family, or as a romantic Valentine’s Day spa experience with that special someone. It symbolises the time you’ve taken to invest in yourself in an environment uniquely focused on your wellbeing.

With the arrival of the New Year – one that sees us gradually ease ourselves back into normal life – we are putting wellness at the forefront of our minds. From our private 15-meter swimming pool and thermal suites to our advanced fitness area, read as we script the perfect Northumberland spa day this winter with our unique Lunch Retreat Day spa package.

Setting the scene for a relaxing Northumberland spa break

From the moment you step through the doors of The Retreat, every sensation will invite you to relax, restore and renew: the rich enveloping scents of essential oils and the tranquillity of our still and peaceful haven.

Set the scene for your luxury North East spa experience with a drink in the stylish 1832, before slipping into your robe and slippers as you prepare to meet with one of our specialist therapists to uncover your true wellness potential.

Before embarking on a journey of relaxation, one of our specialist therapists will work with you to establish your very own wellbeing priorities, before prescribing a programme of Treatments and Rituals courtesy of our luxury partners.

Indulge in your chosen luxury Treatments or Rituals

Turn life on silent mode and commit some time to yourself this winter as we ease away your stresses with our selection of exclusive Treatments and Rituals.

Each of our 90-minute treatments have been hand-picked by our specialists to transform the soul, nourish the mind, and rejuvenate the body.

Facials recommended by our specialist therapists

Between the harsh winter weather, moisture-zapping central heating and low levels of humidity, winter can pay a heavy toll on your skin’s complexion, leaving it feeling dry, irritated and lacking radiance.

For those looking for a cure to replenish and restore after a long winter, we invite you to indulge in the nutrient-dense, ancient organic Tibetan Ky NYE Therapy or a Citrus Essence Vitamin C Boost Therapy to ensure an instant burst of hydration for a radiant lit from within glow.

For a truly luxurious experience, awaken your skin’s natural potential with a revitalising O2 Pollution Defence Face Therapy from Natura Bissé. Purifying and deeply hydrating, our O2 facial treatment helps restore luminosity, even out skin tone, and exceptionally oxygenates the skin, providing an unmatched aura of energy and freshness.

At The Retreat, we believe everybody should experience their true wellness potential, that’s why we are pleased to offer a selection of men’s fascial treatments and mother-to-be massages as part of our Lunch Retreat Day. To discover our full treatment list, click here. 

Massages recommended by our specialist therapists

Through specialist techniques and immersive experiences, we prove that the power of touch remains invaluable, significant, and life-affirming. For those looking to repair a tired body – or for couples seeking some well-deserved relaxation this Valentine’s Day – why not opt for an Inner Peace Body Treatment or Ku NYE Five Massage to ease stresses and soothe aching muscles?

Nourish the body with delicious offerings

Nourishing the body on the inside is just as important as nourishing it on the outside. As part of Lunch Retreat Day, let our talented team of chefs treat your senses to one of their many delicious offerings.

With a focus on the finest, carefully sourced ingredients, our imaginative seasonal menus will elevate your experience into something truly memorable.

Discover The Retreat

After savouring a delicious Lunch, complete your day of wellness with the sense of calm and escapism you deserve.

Enjoy a tranquil and slow-paced afternoon with a few refreshing lengths in our 15-metre spa pool, or ease your tired mind with the aromatherapy essence, mood lighting and gentle heat of our aromatherapy room. For those seeking something more exhilarating, our high-performance fitness area features the latest state of the art Technogym rage that’s perfect for putting your fitness capabilities to the test.

A full Mind, Body and Soul experience

Compliment your experience by losing yourself in a world of rolling hillsides as you explore our magnificent Northumberland setting.

As evening falls, savour a seasonal fine dining experience in our premier dining destination, the Emerald Restaurant, before retiring to your luxurious abode where a complimentary Natura Bissé box set will be awaiting your arrival. To complete your experience at our luxury spa Hotel, enjoy a wonderful Northumbrian breakfast the following morning.
