Avoid the stress of Christmas shopping this year by surprising your loved ones with a Matfen Hall Gift Voucher. Friends and family members can luxuriate their senses with an experience in our magnificent estate, as our gift vouchers allow them to enjoy a choice of stays, dining experiences and rounds of championship-level golf, as well as harmonious spa days and bespoke wine tastings. 

Here we look at what our Gift Vouchers can be used for and why they make such a wonderful present.

Incredible Stays

An overnight escape to the jewel in Northumberland’s crown is a fantastic way to treat those in need of a night away from their normal routine. With 65 bedrooms ranging from Classic to Luxury, each of our beautiful suites allow guests to unwind in spaces designed and decorated to reflect the full elegance of our impressive estate.

From spacious Luxury Suites that offer an up-to-date take on traditional style to deluxe bedrooms that allow guests to drift away in total comfort, a stay at Matfen Hall is an experience to cherish and remember long after it’s over.

Dining Experiences

When surprising a loved one this Christmas, why not really indulge them? With five restaurants, bars and lounges to drink and dine in, not to mention our charismatic wine cellar, they will be spoilt for choice as to which dining experience they choose.

While Emerald Restaurant allows guests to enjoy our exquisite 6 course Tasting Menu within an intricately decorated setting which boasts marvellous views of our unique parkland, it’s also a fitting location for a delicious Sunday Lunch. And, with a Matfen Hall Gift Voucher, your nearest and dearest can really savour a five star dining experience in our premier destination at a time that suits them.

Cloisters Restaurant and Bar is our newest dining destination and allows guests and visitors to enjoy steak and seafood classics beneath a brilliant glass ceiling which presents – depending on the time of day and the weather – beautiful sunshine or a blanket of stars. Guests can sit amongst the original architecture of our atmospheric courtyard or choose to dine on our mezzanine area and enjoy perfect views of The Great Hall’s magnificent stained-glass window.

When you present someone with one of our Gift Vouchers, you are really presenting them with an unforgettable experience and there are very few experiences that match an Afternoon of Indulgence in The Orangery. 

Our dedicated tea lounge is the perfect location for four loved ones to enjoy a distinctive Afternoon Tea accompanied by a jeroboam of Laurent-Perrier Champagne, bookended by our chauffeur transferring them all to and from our country house hotel. 

Our Classic, Champagne and Laurent-Perrier Afternoon Teas are equally incredible ways to spend the day. A highly-finished selection of delicate sandwiches, handmade scones and decadent cakes are served alongside a choice of Newby Tea, Café Du Monde Coffee or Laurent-Perrier Champagne.  

Crafted by our in-house Pastry Team and with captivating views, our Afternoon Tea is the perfect way for your friends and family to relax following a busy festive period.  

If your family and friends are wine aficionados or even if they’re novices with an interest in learning more, a bespoke wine tasting in our charismatic cellar is the ideal way to surprise them. Led by our knowledgeable team, they’ll be inspired to sample and find out more about wines from around the world, through our extensive collection.

Golf at Matfen Hall

Do you have a passionate golfer in your family? Are any of your friends harnessing a burgeoning desire to develop their game on the fairway?

Matfen Hall is home to one of Golf World’s Top 100 Resorts in Great Britain & Ireland, boasting 27 holes alongside a Par-3 course that allows experienced golfers to challenge themselves and those new to the game to hone their skills. 

Situated amongst 300 acres of unique parkland, our impressive golf facilities not only include 3 championship-level courses but a team of PGA professionals offering in-depth coaching, a Driving Range that boasts the latest Toptracer technology and a Pro-Shop that stocks the most desirable brands in the industry, as well as a state-of-the-art custom fit service.

As well as the above, our Gift Vouchers can also be used for golf-based stays, allowing your recipient to unwind in our estate after time spent on one of the finest courses in the North East of England, showing them just how much you care for them.

Tranquil Spa Days

The Retreat, our harmonious spa, is the ideal location for a day of total relaxation. From leisurely dips in our luxury pool and blissful experiences in our Jacuzzi, a Gift Voucher recipient can also enjoy access to our Aromatherapy Room, Steam Room and Sauna, allowing them to ending completely, while our Ice Fountain, Monsoon Shower and Ice Cold Bucket Shower can awaken the senses and leave one feeling reinvigorated.

With a Matfen Hall Gift Voucher, one can also enjoy blissful rituals in our sanctuary of tranquillity. Facials, Mini Marvels and Massages from both Germaine de Capuccini and Natura Bissé are delivered by our team of skilled therapists, while our Spa Brochure also includes treatments for Mothers-to-be and beauty treatments.

For something really special, our Gift Vouchers can also be used to spoil someone with a Retreat Day, which offers a tailored spa experience and includes a delicious lunch or traditional Afternoon Tea.


Providing your family and friends with the gift of choice this Christmas allows them to select their own experiences at the jewel in Northumberland’s crown, making our Gift Vouchers the ideal present for your nearest and dearest.
