Cherryburn is closed for winter

The farmyard in winter

Cherryburn has been put to bed as we give the site a deep clean and let it rest from the busy summer season

What’s going on behind the scenes?


Now the site is closed, we can carry out some essential maintenance and conservation tasks. We’ll also put the collection in a temperature-regulated room to protect and help preserve the items before they’re put out on show again next February.


When does Cherryburn reopen?

Cherryburn reopens on Saturday 10 February. Visit us next year to help us celebrate the 200 year anniversary of the publication of Bewick’s fables, and we’ll have plenty of related events and activities.

Plus, our resident donkeys Paddy and Bethany will return in March, just in time for Easter holiday fun!
