“A step away from the everyday”
Our visitor farm, tearoom and nature reserve are open 7 days a week, 10am to 4pm.

Remember your wellies! The ground is very wet at the moment.

If you are planning a stroll, follow our guides to help your visit. All guides are made with the help of our wonderful volunteers. We would be delighted if you can help us monitor the health of our environment simply by telling us what you see and when you see it. Tag us on social media and share your finds with us. #murtonbirds #murtonbutterflies #murtontrees #murtonwildflowers

We want to encourage everyone that visits us to connect with nature. Everyone has different levels of physical and mental health and we know that time in nature can help with both. Murton is passionate about encouraging life long learning and a walk on the nature reserve is the perfect way to build on this. Why not challenge yourself to find out more about this beautiful space we live in. 

Take a look at some of our information sheets and guides. We will be developing and changing these throughout the year. We certainly don’t have all the answers but we hope we can inspire those young and old to learn while exploring the beautiful reserve. 

Birds

Our nature reserve was designed for wetland and wading birds. As the site has matured we are delighted to also see and hear the hedgerow and woodland birds around the reserve. 

Let us know what you see and hear on site. Tag us on social media using #murtonbirds

Can you help us track the butterflies at Murton? We would be delighted if you can help us monitor the health of our environment simply by counting the amount and type of butterflies you see.

Can you identify an oak tree when it has no leaves?

Can you recognise an elder tree?

Which tree is a pioneer species on our reserve?

Can you help us track the wildflowers at Murton? This is the perfect chance to learn all about wildflowers. Perhaps you could take some notes and hand in your comments to the tearoom. Or share photos on social media and tag us using #murtonwildflowers

Why not hire a rucksack filled with items to inspire the whole family to learn and enjoy their day out. Wander around the nature reserve at your own pace and find out more about what’s all around you.
