The Experience

It’s simply lovely, especially if you like old buildings with a touch of quirk – the original bread oven just inside the front door and the pig sties, perfectly restored, outside. It’s a very cosy space but also quite spacious, with a sitting room downstairs warmed by a wood-burner and with a dining area underneath the window. Upstairs is the sweet bedroom and an en suite bathroom, nicely done with clever lighting.

The kitchen is fully equipped for proper cooking – no microwave – and the tiles are decorated with little goats and other farm animals. Outside you’ll find the walled garden which you’re welcome to sit in with a book, or take a picnic to among the wildflowers and tall grasses. You also have your own little seating area at the back of the cottage overlooking fields.

Visit the barn with the original pressoir in it: the large stone was hauled around by a donkey as the space was too small for a horse. Living history.

Our two night stay in the beautifully restored, historic granite bakehouse was a delightful experience. The exceptionally high quality décor, finishings and fittings provided a very high level of comfort. The location of the property, set amongst the Jersey country lanes and farmland, insured total tranquility. Wish we could have stayed for much longer!

I could certainly while away a good few days at The Bakehouse. It feels very homely the moment you step inside. It is newly renovated and excudes charm. The sitting / dining area is spacious and cosy with a fire available. I delighted in seeing the original bread oven retained as part of the renovation. The surrounding historic farm is pleasantly landscaped and a sheltered wall garden to read in!

The neighbourhood

This is a very quiet and rural spot, so you'll need bikes or a car to explore the island. Hamptonne Country Life Museum is a seven-minute cycle and well worth a visit – a slightly larger, more rustic, version of Morel Farm and still a working farm. It's in a beautiful valley for lovely woodland walks. The Jersey War Tunnels are 20 minutes away for a unique insight into the German occupation during WW2.

Local points of interest from National Trust for Jersey

  • The island used to be covered by apple orchards, some of which are at Morel Farm. Farmers would make cider to give to their staff as part of their wages; the staff would then make Black Butter by boiling the cider over an open fire for up to two days.
  • Morel Farm has been used as the backdrop for several films, including Under the Greenwood Tree (starring Keeley Hawes), Being Julia (starring Annette Benning) and Neither the Sea nor the Sand (starring Susan Hampshire).
  • Jersey is a “peculiar of the Crown”, owing allegiance not to Westminster but to King Charles III. This relationship began in 1066 after which William the Conqueror ruled as both William I and the Duke of Normandy, the latter of which Jersey was a part.
  • Morel Farm was the first property to be gifted to the National Trust for Jersey in 1939. Today the Trust now owns and cares for over 30 historic properties ranging from mills and farmhouses to fortifications.
  • The island’s historic links to France are reflected in the French road names and surnames which can be seen across the island. In addition to English and French, the island has a third official language, Jèrriais.
  • Long jacks (also known as a Jersey Cabbage) were once grown at the farm to make walking sticks. One was presented to Princess Anne when she visited Morel Farm in 1984.


National Trust for Jersey

The farm was gifted to The National Trust for Jersey in 1939 by A J Morel, and his daughter Mary added the surrounding fields in 2004. There is a farmhouse, pressoir, bakehouse, a potato store known as the Chapel and several other outbuildings. It is Grade II listed due to the survival of original interior and exterior architectural features, dating from the 17th to the 19th century.
