Matfen High House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #11 of 14 Corbridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was our first stop when walking Hadrian's wall. Struan and Jenny kindly stored out bags which we dropped off a day early, whilst we spent time in Newcastle. Our room was enormouse with a large ensuite containing a bath. The room had many interesting features and furniture which added to the ambience. The bed did have a soft mattress but we still slept well. As there was no evening meal, Jenny gave us a lift to the Robin Hood Pub, she would have bought us back too but we decided to walk back through the fields, the sign to Matfen was easy to find. Breakfast was one of the best out of all our accommodation with home baked bread and lots of choice. We would definitely go back.

The bed could do with a replacement of the mattress. The present mattress - as another reviewer already stated - must date from Emperor Hadrian's time. It is an impertinence for any walker who needs a good night's sleep after a long walk. Breakfast was fine, a homebaked bred was a treat.

We loved the place. It would have got 5 stars if some of the fixtures and fittings had been in a bit of a better condition.

That being said, it was perfectly comfortable and our hosts went out of their way to accomodate us. They even closed two of the five rooms so we could all have a private bathroom!

Breakfast was amazing from start to finish and there were copious amounts of tea and coffee in the rooms, a real positive these days.

Although I agree that the breakfast at this B+B was great in the true English manner, our bed was apparently from emperor Hadrian's times. Spent the most uncomfortable night of our trip here. Also, the house could do with a good scrubbing.
Main photo is of Matfen Hall which is a different establishment.
We feel let down by Tripadvisor contributors !

Very comfortable, country room. Friendly hosts and a good breakfast. Wonderful quiet location. Great brewery right next door for meals (or a drink). It was our second stay here and I would certainly go back.

We booked all the rooms with extras on the floor! Struan and Jenny accommodated all of us which was just great. The huge dining room and fabulous breakfast topped off our weekend perfectly. Hope to return soon Thank you
