Welcome to Standing Stone Farm

Standing Stone Farm is an exciting, high quality, rural courtyard office development created from the traditional natural stone buildings of the original Matfen Estates sawmill yard.


8,000 square feet of flexible office space is available, divided into 12 modern, self-contained, energy efficient, office units, all with private kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Away from the noise and congestion of an urban development, Standing Stone Farm offers a secure, attractive and peaceful working environment. The development will have excellent road communication links and is only 16 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne, 13 miles from Newcastle International Airport and 9 miles from Hexham.

Matfen Estates is committed to doing what it can to reduce its carbon footprint and help to combat climate change. Matfen Estates has 5 biomass boilers, used to provide heat and hot water to Matfen Hall Hotel and some of the Estates residential properties.

All boilers are over 90% efficient and carbon neutral. The Standing Stone woodchip boiler was installed in December 2014 in preparation for the office development. All of the timber is sourced locally and a high proportion comes from the Estates managed woodlands. Timber is dried and then chipped on the Estate and used to produce heat and hot water.
