Matfen Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa is situated in the village of Matfen in rural Northumberland in North East England. It is the ancestral home of Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett. This stately home is set in 300 acres of parkland and has been a country house hotel with a golf estate since 1999; it was redeveloped and extended in 2005 in order to provide further bedroom accommodation, conference facilities and a new health spa.

Desco was appointed to deliver M&E and pool water design services on the redevelopment and new-build extension to the existing development to provide a new health spa including a fitness pool, exercise suite, dance studio, health and beauty treatment rooms and changing facilities.

The new health spa facility offers clients a ‘Fire and Ice’ themed experience which includes:

  • A soothing salt grotto
  • Crystal steam room
  • Herbal sauna
  • Tropical feature massage shower
  • Ice fountain

Also provided as part of the redevelopment project were 30 additional bedrooms, conference facilities and a golf club house.
