Other Opportunities

We are delighted to share Matara with the business, well-being, & film community.

Over the last 29 years Geoffrey has created an open place of beauty with numerous natural habitats to enhance and enliven the place as a whole. The exclusive-use venue is set within 28 acres of parklands, gardens, and woodlands offering a place for everyone.

Matara invites you to express yourselves and offers a canvas for your needs.

With room to host 150 delegates and comfortable spaces for 5 and 25 people, Matara is able to host a wealth of companies, big and small.

We invite you to create a memorable experience for your group and are here to help you every step of the way with one of our in-house event coordinators.

Film Location

"I am the Series Producer of Sister Boniface, a BBC Studios production for Britbox.  We were lucky enough to be the first television show to film at the beautiful Matara Centre.  We couldn’t have been happier with the location which offered such a variety of possibilities all in the one location.  We utilised beautiful romantic interiors, the woods and much of  the Asian inspired gardens – much of it with excellent weather cover.  Olivia and her team couldn’t have been more helpful in accommodating our needs and we were able to house our unit base in an adjoining field.  I would highly recommend this location to other televisions and film companies."

"Matara has allowed me the space, peace and time to be quiet, be in touch with the natural world, and let the course material and ethos to settle on me."
