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

We caught the bus to a nearby village, and took a pleasant wander down some quiet country lanes to the museum. We found it to be very informative and had a lovely time just wandering round from building to building, we had an interesting chat to the "goodwife" and took lots of photos, then went for a delicious Jersey cream...

We loved this little museum in the countryside of Jersey which aimed to depict the life of a well to do country farmer in the 16th century (or about then). In the kitchen of the house there was a 'houseman' who told us how life would have been for the owners and the servants in that time - he was... More

a lovely place to visit for few hours. the highlight of the attraction is the place is a talk given by the "goodwife". a very witty and charming talker is the lady who will keep you spell bound and enchanted with her stories and words.

We walked from the village on our last morning in Jersey and ended up having a fascinating couple of hours at this nicely preserved farm complex. We started looking around on our own but soon got collected by a pleasant guide who then took us around with a small group of other visitors. The tour talk he provided was excellent... More

We had a really good morning here. The manservant doing the dressing up bit was very entertaining and knowledgeable. The bread bakers were very friendly and their enthusiasm and character greatly added to the tour. Whilst the children were looking at the dressing up box a chicken popped in and laid an egg in it. Cafe very good - the... More
