We stayed here on day 3 of walking Hadrian's Wall with Mac adventure tours. We finished our walk at the Robin Hood pub at 17-30, so stayed for a meal and a few pints before going to Matfen House. When we rang up to tell them, they said no problem and I'll pick you up from the pub to save you the mile walk. This is a large farm house with very big rooms. OK so the decor of the rooms are maybe not to everyone's taste, but this is not a chain hotel. It's someone's home. The breakfast was as good as you'll get anywhere and more then enough for us.
The next statement is just a personal view. The owners where prefect, willing to help in every way, but I for one felt a little uncomfortable staying there. The owners are of a different social class to me. That was not a problem to them, but I got the feeling that we was invading their home. That is why I say that this B&B would be a perfect place for any visitor from abroad to stay if only to get the flavour of how a country squire lives.
Would I return? With regret I have to stay maybe not. Again a personal thing, nothing to do with Matfen High House, more to do with me.More
