We thoroughly enjoyed our visit this morning and I'd like to say thank you to pleasant staff and animals. We were made very welcome and felt relaxed and appreciated. We had a Jersey Pass and a hired car which we would recommend. PS a satnav is an essential!

This is poor and saved from rubbish only by a few cute animals. What a missed opportunity. There are three farmhouses from very different periods on site. Given that this is a Jersey Heritage site, what a fantastic opportunity to place each building into a social and political context, maybe follow the story of the farming family explaining the different...

I stayed at the large apartment at Hamptonne as part of a small family group, and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a beautiful place and our apartment, above the cider barn was beautiful. This is a lovely, peaceful place and, being central, is very convenient for all attractions (as long as you have use of a car), Visitors... More

Visited this property as part of a small group on holiday in Jersey. Our visit here was such a pleasure - the Goodwyfe was so brilliant - she should be on the London stage! The hens with their babies were so happy - the calves were relaxed and the pigs enjoying their rest. Having worked for the National Trust on... More

Lovely morning spent at the 17th centery farm muesum, all the animals out and about, the hens had there chicks with them. The good wyfe was on hand to give a talk about the farms history, the medows were bursting with all things fauna, and the gardens were lovely with all the flowers out in blossom.

A brilliantly well-presented insight into the past. There are animals and chickens to charm and interest children and adults alike. The buildings contain enough artefacts to tell the story and a costumed lady (the Good Wife) was on hand to explain some of the more intricate details. We are under no illusions about farm life in past years - the... More

We visited for the first time this year and maybe it was because it is nearing the end of the season, but everything seemed a bit run down and 'shut up' already. There are various buildings and gardens to look at and the houses are interesting to look around. There is an activity room for children and the shop is... More

Not value for money. We expected more and did not see the 'Goodwyf' or hear the stories she was supposed to be telling.

My wife and I went there (as visitors) with our two grand children, 7 yrs and 4 yrs (Jersey residents) on a 'trip' out. The children, from the moment they arrived there (unwillingly I have to say) were completely taken over by events at the location, so much so we had problems in trying to make them leave after just...

Peaceful and beautiful look at a well preserved corner of historical Jersey. Arthur, the guide in all his resplendent costume, gave us an enthusiastic and informative talk about the house and its old occupants. We liked Arthur. Every attraction should have an Arthur. My enduring bit of information was about the linseed oil and clay floor. The forerunner of Lino!... More
