Not much to recommend this place, staff were friendly enough but it cost nearly £10 for a visit, with very little of interest to see. So many other worthwhile places to see in Jersey, really would give this one a miss

Hi there, thanks for your feedback, the staff at Hamptonne are a friendly bunch. We are sorry you felt that the admission cost was expensive. Offering value for money for our visitors is very important to us, so we annually compare our prices to equivalent museums and attractions. In addition, we have just released the Jersey Heritage Pass which offers... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Hamptonne. It is a really special place especially when the calves, piglets and chickens are there bringing it to life. Did you meet the Goodwyf or Man Servant in one of the houses? Their stories of the past are excellent! More

This is a small collection of houses, portraying the agricultural history of Jersey. In one building, a person in period dress will tell you about the farm and in another are details about Jersey cows and also an exhibit of samplers some hundreds of years old. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. Outside are orchards, outbuildings, young calves... More

Interesting buildings to explore, but felt that overall the exhibit lacked in terms of presentation and information. Worth a visit but nothing brilliant!

Hi, thanks for the feedback on your visit to Hamptonne I am sorry you felt it was a bit underwhelming. At Hamptonne we allow our visitors a chance to step back in time to explore Jersey’s rural past mainly through the living history characters of the Goodwyf or the Manservant living in the 15th century house. I hope you got... More

Outstanding farm with friendly staff and people to explain. Do not miss the children's samplers some done by 7 year olds. Very good room guides and the whole place is beautifully arranged and furnished in period. Kids loved calves and piglets. Excellent soup in the cafe and a warm welcome. Small shop. Museum pass 4 for 3 not cheap but... More

A great outing for us with a 2.5 year old. Enthusiastic staff, beautifully restored buildings, lovely grounds and a few animals. The bacon butty in the cafe was excellent as well.

From the genuine welcome to the old farmhouse and the café, this is a real treasure and wonderful place to visit. The buildings have been re-created to how they might have been temps passe and are so authentic. The highlight of the visit for me are always the guides and the 'old wife' who bring the tales of Hamptonne to... More

This farm, dating from Tudor times, is a real gem exemplifying rural Jersey life through the last five centuries. The careful restoration of the Tudor house is first class, and the condition of the younger farm buildings is great too. The pinnacle of the year is the weekend in Autumn when there is cider making in the traditional granite horse... More

We biked to this museum (more killer hills!) and had to wait a while for it to open. It is a farm that has been around since the 15th century. Fascinating history including a modern day take on waste disposal - hole in the wall direct to the pig trough. It also has a cider press which they use each... More
