As far as dream holiday destinations go, the UK doesn’t often top many people’s lists but with disturbances to rail and air travel, there’s never been a better time for you to avoid unnecessary stress and to spend your summer on British shores with a trip to Northumberland.

The United Kingdom is home to captivating countryside and breathtaking beaches, and since the global pandemic, a stronger appreciation for what each county has to offer has certainly grown, with Northumberland unsurprisingly becoming a highlight to visitors travelling from every corner of the country. Featuring one of Europe’s top beaches, Hollywood film sets, the happiest place to live in the UK and a range of other award-winning attractions, it truly is a destination that always provides something for everyone.

Steeped in heritage, Northumberland is an indulgence enjoyed by everyone who visits and, within a mile of Hadrian’s Wall – which is celebrating 1900 years of history this year – is our magnificent country estate, nestled in the heart of the serene landscape. Symbolising the beauty of its historical surroundings, our unequalled paradise provides you with everything you need to experience a unique summer.

Whether you prefer the grandeur of the Emerald Restaurant, the decadent ambience of a bistro-style lunch at Needham or the informal but inviting atmosphere of The Keepers, there is a dining destination suitable for everyone’s tastes. 

Our skilful chefs create culinary masterpieces with the best of British food for you to savour during an exquisite dining experience, while The Retreat, our luxurious spa, is a place for you to unwind into a state of total wellbeing. We have a whole host of bespoke and harmonious treatments for you to choose from, with each one elevating you to new levels of relaxation.

For golfers of every ability, our beautiful course offers you the chance to challenge yourself and develop your game in the most spectacular of settings. Play your choice of 27 holes of championship golf, the Par-3, which provides a quicker challenge, or simply perfect your swing on our driving range. 

We also have a dedicated team of PGA Professionals and a pro shop on-site, so should you require some insight for your game or a bespoke custom fitting, you’ll find what you need at Matfen Hall.

Your time on our magnificent country estate is capped by a stay in one of our spacious and opulent suites. With stately-sized suites, intimate bedrooms and everything in between to choose from, you’ll relax like never before. Intricately designed bathrooms and the inspiring Northumberland scenery acting as a backdrop will only indulge you further. 

If you are looking to make your stay a family affair, our interconnecting rooms are the perfect option. We even have dog-friendly accommodation, making your holiday with us a memorable one for every member of the family.

Your luxurious stay with us will become a cherished memory of your British summer holiday and, with a range of prestigious experiences for you to enjoy on our grounds, you’ll easily fall in love with holidays at home.

Guests can savour everything from live music and garden parties to country pursuits, ultimate spa days and golf tuition. There really is a summer experience for everyone when you book your stay with us. 

Of course, summer is a time for relaxation as well as action and our 300-acre estate is a perfect choice. No matter how you wish to spend your time, unwinding in Northumberland allows you to avoid the stresses and strains of travelling abroad while celebrating the best that Britain has to offer.

Discover a whole world of luxury when you book your stay with us.

This summer, make it memorable. Make it Matfen.
