Welcome to Matfield House

A charming Georgian house built by Thomas and Mary Marchant in 1728. Matfield is of one of those late Stuart and early Georgian houses typically the homes of village magnates, well-to-do farmers, merchants and small landowners, and represents a perfect example of such.

Matfield is home to the Garthwaite family, who extend a warm welcome to anyone wishing to visit as part of a small group.

There has been much work done on the house and more being done in the gardens at present - with one or two progressive twists to make what is a family home more suited to modern living - we think it shows what can be done with a Grade 1 listed building and it is our pleasure to show people around.
