Visitor Farm Open

We are delighted to open our visitor farm once again to visitors. From 29th August we are now fully open for visitors to the farm as well as the nature reserve and tearoom. For a limited time we are pleased to offer free entry to the farm to everyone to come along and enjoy a day out.

Our Visitor Farm and Tearoom are open Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm. We have limited seating in our tearoom but plenty seating and space for your picnic blankets over our picnic area. The tearoom has a reduced takeaway menu but soups, hot and cold filled rolls and delicious traybakes, cakes and scones are all still available.

The Nature Reserve is open 7 days and is free to take a gentle stroll round or let the little ones explore.

Nature Reserve

We have some exciting news to share with you all. Our Nature Reserve is opening!!

From Friday 26th June, we will be opening our car park gates from 9.30am – 2.30pm, 7 days a week.
The reserve is beautiful at the moment and our staff have been working hard to keep it maintained while we have been closed. So please do come along and enjoy a stroll.

We have taken the decision for the tearoom and visitor farm to remain closed at this time. We do plan for these to open in the not to distant future, but for now they remain closed.

**Please note there will be no toilets available or hand wash facilities across our site while the tearoom and farm remain closed. Only one bird hide, at the car park will be accessible until our site fully opens.

For anyone who has not had a chance to walk on our reserve before, it is free to access. Around half of the reserve is wheelchair accessible while the rest of it is a gentle walk with maintained grass paths.

Thank you for your continued support and patience at this time. Keep an eye out for updates on the opening of other areas of our site. For now, we look forward to welcoming you back to our nature reserve

Murton Closure

In line with Government guidelines we have decided to close Murton with immediate effect. Please note that this closure covers our entire site and applies to our tearoom, farm, nature reserve, tots group, volunteering, placements and all group visits. Our website will be kept up to date with any changes – please do keep checking in.

We know that Murton is used by many in our community as more than just a tearoom or leisure site and that our nature reserve and services will be missed by many at a time they are needed more than ever. We will work hard to re-open and offer services in a safe way, when we possibly can. Each area of our work will be reviewed separately and may open or start again at different times. We will aim to communicate clearly and openly throughout the coming weeks.

We will of course welcome your emails and social media messages during this time, however our phone line will not be monitored until further notice.

As a charity, this has been a very difficult decision to make, but made easier knowing that we have always been so wonderfully supported by of our community. We do hope you all keep safe and well and that we are able to all come together again at Murton very soon.

From all the team at Murton, Alison, Rob, Al, Peter, Irene, Louise, Shaun, Linda, Jill, Sheila, Eilidh, Danny, Kyle, Molly, Eve, Grace, Anna, Maisie and all our volunteers.
