Matfen Hall has won the best recently renovated hotel category in the 2024 Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence UK, Europe & The Mediterranean.

Walwick Estate Group took over the ownership of Matfen Hall in 2020, acquiring the property from the Blackett family, focusing on a multi-million pound investment programme.

The expansive Grade II-listed building has undergone a stylish transformation and makeover, with the historic Great Hall meticulously restored to its former glory.
