Hamptonne Country Life Museum

Discover six centuries of Jersey’s rural life at Hamptonne Country Life Museum. Dating back to the 15th century the house and farm are brought to life with characters from the Island’s past.

The farm complex comprises of three houses, a colombier, several outbuildings and an orchard. Each of the three houses dates from a different century, reflecting the changing architectural styles of Jersey over time.

Explore the orchard and learn about bygone crafts and quirky traditions from the resident Goodwyf.  Find out more about our history of cider making and Jersey apples.

During the summer, visitors can meet the Hamptonne pigs in the traditional pigsty with outdoor yard and mud bath and see Jersey cows graze in the fields.  Special events take place throughout the year for all the family to enjoy, including the annual Fais’sie d’Cidre.

The houses are named after the families who have lived at Hamptonne, the Syvret Building, Hamptonne House and the Langlois Building – which boasts some of the oldest architectural features in the Island.

At the instigation of the late Joan Stevens, the Island’s three main heritage organisations joined forces to save this unique farm complex and create the Island’s first country life museum. With the assistance of the States of Jersey the Trust acquired Hamptonne, which was then restored and refurbished by the Societe Jersiaise. The Jersey Heritage Trust completed the interpretation of 400 years of rural history.
