We went here for a day out whilst my husband went fishing. There is not a great deal to do, but it kept us entertained for 3 hours, and we bought some delicious bread at the end of our visit.

We went into the little house,saw the Goodwyf... More

There are a few restored houses with mildly interesting furnishings. There are supposed to be docents dressed in period costume explaining parts of the history. Unfortunately, everything is being packed up an hour prior to closing. Perhaps at midday the museum is more interesting. Without the local color, it is just rooms partially restored in period furnishings. Cautious on the... More

Hamptonne Country Life Museum is a hidden gem. It's not on a main bus route, unfortunately. It is down country lanes, and is not very well sign posted. However, once you get there it deserves an unhurried visit. In the main house was a lady dressed up, who told us all about life at the time the house was built.... More

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

Beautifully kept gives one the true perspective of farm life in the old days. I remember going to many farms as a child, loved bringing in the cows for milking by hand . Wearing wooden shoes to walk around the farm. eating tomatoes just picked, yummy!

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.
