Matfield House is a grade I listed Georgian house in the village of Matfield, Kent, England.

The house was built in 1728 in the Queen Anne style for Thomas Marchant, a yeoman farmer from Horsmonden and his heiress wife Mary. It is constructed in two storeys of pink and red brick in Flemish bond overlooking the Matfield village green.

The associated stable block is also grade I listed. One of a group of buildings forming a stable courtyard, it is surmounted by an impressive clock turret and cupola. The other stable building is listed grade II*, as is the coachhouse and the nearby Matfield House Cottages.

The cricketer Francis Marchant, captain of Kent CCC from 1890–1897, was born in the house in 1864.
