Discover 300 years of Jersey's rural heritage in this collection of picturesque farm buildings and meadows nestling in the countryside.
In the heart of St Lawrence, Hamptonne Country Life Museum transports you back to 17th century rural life. Explore the cluster of restored farmhouses and outbuildings or follow a nature trail and feed the farm animals. Discover local Jersey traditions such as cabbage loaves and cider making.
Explore Hamptonne house with the help of the resident housekeeper, the Goodwyf, who will intrigue you with local gossip, stories and quirky traditions. You'll find her working hard in the kitchen or tending to the cows in the sheds.
Children can pet the Jersey calves, feed the chickens, play outside in the activity area and explore the woodland, orchard and meadow. There is also a special children's room where our younger visitors can play with jigsaw puzzles and a model farm or test their knowledge with quizzes, nature trails and activity sheets. They can also enjoy drawing pictures and dressing up!
