  • "Property was clean, comfortable, nice decor and in a quiet spot on the edge of the village."

    Within easy walking distance to local shops and pubs. Good location for visiting Alnwick, Bamburgh. Berwick and Seahouses/Farne Islands. Would not hesitate to recommend this property.

  • "We had a wonderful break in this cosy cottage."

    Nicely laid out, two bathrooms were a real plus as we were sharing with other family members. A welcome pack was a nice touch too. Situated on a small and quiet estate, it is within easy walking distance of a charming village with two pubs, both of which offer quality menus. All the usual attractions, Warkworth, Bamborough, Alnwick and Cragside are all a short drive away. Highly recommended. We hope to return next year.

  • "We’ve just had a fab long weekend!"

    The lack of WiFi meant we could reconnect and do things IRL. The lodge is spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming, perfect for a quiet base to get out exploring the local area. The host Mandy was brilliant. The welcome pack was nice and we had everything and more required for a wonderful stay. We’re already planning and booking our next trip

  • "There was a lot of rain and after two days the road round the site turned into a swamp."

    Not that there was a proper road. The lodge was ok. The interior looked nothing like the pictures on Sykes website. A lot of dust round the windows and air vents in the bathrooms. The welcome biscuits, milk and wine were a nice touch. Sadly the site feels very run down and unloved

  • "The property was perfect for our stay, it had all the amenities we needed."

    It was clean and warm, we have stayed on the site many times but was really impressed with the size and comfort in Matfen. We will definitely recommend the site and the lodge and will hopefully be back soon.

  • "Lovely lodge, very quiet location 15 min walk to village."

    Was not that clean, I wiped some water off the floor and it was filthy, not been dusted either, told main bathroom shower didnt have any hot water and plumber coming to fix then told he cannot het a part for it and finally told having a new bathroom fitted before xmas, dont think ever intended to fix it, would have preferred the truth! Grounds need tidying up and craters filling in on the road around cabins.

    Hi Diane, as you were told, we had just taken over the lodge and had to honour the guests that were already booked in. The plumber couldn’t get the part for the shower and so we decided on putting a new bathroom in, as it all needs updating. Property Owner

The property

Matfen is a lovely, timber lodge lying amidst the Northumberland countryside, settled on private land in the village of Longframlington.

Matfen offers a group of six friends or family a tranquil retreat in this great touring location, near to the Northumberland National Park, a host of attractions and within reach of the coast.

Find the charming open-plan living space, home to a rich and welcoming interior, with hues of cream and brown alongside natural wood creating a contemporary take on country style.

The stylish kitchen holds an electric oven with a gas hob for making some delicious home-cooked meals, alongside a great selection of appliances.

Dine at the elegant dining table with sleek cream seats, with streams of light coming through the attractive floor-length, arched window behind.

Two plush sofas each seating three offer a sumptuous spot to unwind, with a TV to watch an entertaining film on with your loved ones amidst.

Settle in one of the three beautifully-presented bedrooms, with the master double benefitting from an en-suite shower room, with a further double bedroom, and finally a bunk bedroom, all served by the gleaming wet room with walk-in shower.

Resting in Longframlington, a picturesque village surrounded by lush meadows and rolling hills, is where you’ll also find your nearest hub of amenities, with The Granby Inn pub, and Londis convenience store to ease your stay.

Venture further East to the market town of Rothbury and explore the grand National Trust mansion of Cragside, or perhaps reroute to Alnwick to visit the medieval Alnwick Castle - the second largest inhabited castle in England.

The town of Alnwick is steeped in history, with its bustling cobbled streets, impressive architecture, and beautiful gardens certainly worth exploring, or head to the Northumberland Coast AONB, dotted with sandy shorelines and delightful, coastal villages, worth exploring whilst on your travels.

All of this can be expected from Matfen.
