The Experience

The Chapel is in fact an old potato store but a bell in the belfry might give a clue to its colloquial name. Today, a clever restoration has resulted in a charming bolthole for two. You step inside to a cosy open-plan space with a wood-burner for rainy days, a smart shower room also down here and stairs up to a double bedroom in the eaves.

On fine days you can take your book and sit in the walled garden, a wildflower-strewn riot of colour, or head to the barn to check out the original pressoir stone, once powered by donkey to make apple juice and cider. Zip down country lanes from the door towards the rugged coast spotting castles and WWII fortifications, laze on golden sand beaches and visit buzzy St Helier, the capital in the heart of the island.

Pick up a fresh catch of the day from any number of local fishmongers and spend your evening eating well, glass of something cold in hand, before curling up on the sofa.

Absolutely wonderful in every way, beautiful, quiet and renovated to a very high standard. The best welcome bag we have ever received ! We will be back.

Claire, Jersey

I have just spent 2 nights in the beautiful Chapel. Exquisite linen and a very comfortable night’s sleep, I woke to complete silence, with the exception of welcoming birdsong. Thank you for a lovely stay - I will be back

Maggie, Oxford

Morel Farm, where The Chapel is situated, is steeped in history and character. The whole farm has been smartly renovated, with no expense spared, to make this a truly comfortable and delightful place to stay. You will enjoy exploring the grounds: there is an old pressoir, pigsties, an indoor barn space, a secret walled garden and surrounding wildflower meadows.

The neighbourhood

You can walk to Greenhills Country House Hotel for supper and cycle pretty much everywhere if you don't fancy using the car every day. For a day trip, visit Hamptonne Country Life Museum, dating from the 15th century you can discover much about Jersey's rural life and history. It's also set in a stunning valley with heaps of woodland walks. St Helier is a 15-minute drive and the coast even less.

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.
