Luxury hotel and country estate Matfen Hall has unveiled its new initiative dedicated to giving working from ‘home’ a completely new meaning.

Matfen Hall is inviting professionals and businesspeople across the region (and further afield) to elevate their remote work experience, with their regular, uninspiring ‘work from home’ Friday transforming into working from a stunning ‘Country Home’. Fridays will gain a new ‘feelgood’ factor, with a different more relaxed ‘wfh’ experience leading up to a wonderful weekend.

The “Working from Matfen” package, starting at £299, includes dinner bed and breakfast and access to the Retreat and grounds. Matfen Hall, situated in one of the most stunning landscapes in the UK, provides an idyllic backdrop for a reinvigorating workday. The 300-acre parkland and the manicured lawns of Le Jardin Hollandaise provide an atmosphere conducive to creativity with its serene surroundings.

Guests are invited to leave their office after work on Thursday to arrive at Matfen Hall, settling into the luxurious surroundings and setting the stage for a productive Friday. Dinner awaits in the Cloisters Restaurant, with £50 per person towards the meal. Then head to the bar to relax before a great night’s sleep in one of the impressive bedrooms.

Following a recent multi-million pound refurbishment, the bedrooms’ beautiful features include Hypnos Lansdowne Cashmere emperor beds boasting 300 thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateen, offering the most comfortable rest.  Roll-top baths, walk-in showers and underfloor heating complement the experience. After a restful Thursday night, it’s down the winding, historic spiral staircase to one of Matfen’s many lounges and snugs to start work, with roaring fires and idyllic rolling hills becoming the perfect backdrop.

With full access to the spa facilities, guests can unwind after a day’s work, enjoying the perfect transition from the workweek to a leisurely weekend.

“Why work from home when you can ‘Work from Matfen’?” says James O’Donnell, Matfen Hall’s Head of Commercial Development. “We believe in creating an environment where work seamlessly transitions into relaxation. Matfen Hall is not just a venue; it’s an escape, a place where every day feels special and different.”

“Matfen Hall has always been synonymous with luxury and relaxation,” says James. “With ‘Working from Matfen’ we’re offering professionals an opportunity to make Matfen Hall their own for a day – a space where they can work in an inspiring setting, enjoy fantastic dining options, and experience the charm of our historic property.”

“Working from Matfen” is not just a retreat; it’s a refreshing approach to remote work, providing a change of scenery and an infusion of luxury into the workweek. Matfen Hall welcomes professionals to embrace this unique opportunity, where work and leisure coalesce, creating a seamless transition between productivity and relaxation
