“Awful!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Clearly this museum used to be really good - good reviews on here and in guide books but what a big disappointment it is clearly losing money and trying to save money - it seemed run down - the staff seemed disinterested - the cafe that claimed to do all home cook Jersey food was just selling pre-packed sandwiches and a couple of cakes that the young girl serving didn't even know what they were! What a waste of £20.70 to get in and £20 on pre-packed food!!

“A step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2009

Hamptonne is a great day out for all ages and you can quite easily loose yourself here for a few hours.
Going on a day when the sun is shining adds to the attraction but there are enought buildings for you to go in if it was to rain.
There is a gift shop and a cafe, where the meals are all freshly home made and wonderful, and great local treats like the cabbage bread.
You wonder around the fields with the hens & chicks and just step back in time, you could easily see yourself living there. The houses & barns are great and cool against the sunshine but fires are alight on cooler days.
They have a good number of animals here, which are great for the kids of any age and they all have name and you can stroke them.
Well worth a visit and a meal.
