“Farm Life in Jersey”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

A non working farm with some equipment if that is what you like. Worth a visit to see what rural Jersey was about

Reviewed March 9, 2012

A wonderful old farm.only open for short periods of time. Lots of history dating back to before CHARLES the 2nd became king.The goodwyfe tells a good tale.The cider weekend in October is a must to see.The horse moving the stone to crush the apples and then the old press that is used to press the crushed apples to make the lovely cider.this is not sold in the shops,but can sample last years batch.Lots to do and see that weekend for everybody including a music night.See and buy cabbage loaves cooked in the old ovens,taste the Jersey wonders fresh from the ovens.go into the house and see the goodwyfe and myself cooking steak ,onions mash potatoes for the men and youngsters in the barn pressing the apples.Yes i did say myself as im a volunteer for this event.Our family holiday is based around cider weekend every year.Fun for all.If you are over at that time please come and say hello to us

“Awful!!”
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”
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.
