The Experience

The layout is quirky, all on different levels and with two staircases just perfect for indoor hide and seek. The windows are original and many of the architectural features have been retained and restored (including the ‘salter’ trough where a slaughtered pig would keep fresh during the winter) but with modern central heating and clever lighting. Spread out over a drawing room, dining room or a snug. The kitchen is immaculate and tastefully designed.

Rooms have paint by Edward Bulmer and there are interesting artworks on the walls, so there’s a real country feel to the whole place, with a warming fire to gather around on chilly days playing cards or chess. Children will love the space to play and you can wander the walled garden or find a quiet spot to sit listening to birdsong. Visit the ancient pressoir for making apple juice and cider.

Bedrooms are very comfortable and tasteful with views through pretty windows and spotless bathrooms.

A superb property exuding a sense of calm and wellbeing, enveloped in timeless heritage. Superbly decorated and equipped with great attention to detail. It feels like a privilege and honour to be able to stay here. Superior at every level. A faultless and truly memorable stay. We will be back!

This feels like a magical and decadent place to stay. It feels like you are on a film set of a period drama set in the 17th Century but it immaculate. The Farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and I just loved the colour palette of colours used throughout. The farm is fascinating - its history, its quirks and character and I myself would love to stay here with a group of friends for a weekend.

The neighbourhood

It's a quiet spot, surrounded by fields and quiet roads so walks and cycles will be rural and quiet, with lots of birdsong. You can walk to Greenhills Country House Hotel in 16 minutes for fine dining. Visit Hamptonne Country Life Museum for a glimpse of a historic working farm; from here you can walk through woodlands. The Jersey War Tunnels are 20 minutes in the car and are fascinating.

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.
