Matfen is a small village about fifteen miles north west of Newcastle and two miles north of the Military Road, which follows the line of Hadrian's Wall across Northumberland. Despite its quiet, rural atmosphere, the village is well-connected to the main roads which connect the county – the A69 from east to west and the A68 and A696 from south to north.
The hall is right in the centre of the village. It was once part of the village school and shares the building with Matfen Store, a thriving enterprise which combines a village shop with a popular café. The open space of the village green and the newly installed playarea is on its doorstep.
The village hall is owned by Matfen Estates, who have passed responsibility for its use and maintenance through a Trust Deed to a committee, made up of volunteers from the community.
The village hall is built in stone and retains many of its original features, both inside and out. It is an attractive and welcoming venue and the committee is keen to attract users.
