It's not related to Bentley cars, but you can see classic car museum, but mainly concentrate on birds different types of birds like ducks many species, peacock etc.. Need around 1 hour to visit birds living independently , like a forest.

We visited Bentley with friends in mid-September having not been there for over 10 years. The sun was shining and we enjoyed a leisurely walk through the woods and the bird enclosures. It was all very beautiful and peaceful and we survived an assault by an angry swan! (There was a warning notice in the shop). We then enjoyed the... More

Started our visit in the Craft Centre where we saw lovely wooden toys & models, restoration of ceramics and then enjoyed a conversation with the charming lady in spinning & quiltwork. On to the motor museum where there are some unusual cars on display. The café beckoned next where we enjoyed coffee & walnut cake & shortbread (baked there and... More

I visited recently with 2 grandchildren, aged 7 & 4, and had a lovely morning. The day started with a ride on the little train (paid for separately from the admission, £1 each) which they enjoyed, then a walk through the bird enclosures. It's worth getting the packets of bird seed at 50p for them to feed the birds. The... More

Started our day out at Bentley with a full English breakfast in the tea room which was very good. The tea room has a varied menu from liver and bacon to nachos and you could spend an afternoon working your way through the homemade cakes let alone visiting the attractions. We then wandered through the wildfowl park which took us... More

Very enjoyable, three days out in one! Especially enjoyed looking at all the cars, very interesting conversation with the chap on duty. Lovely cakes in the tea room. Only regret, we should have bought some bird seed! The birds all come running and it would have been fun to feed them! Excellent day, great value for money! Don't forget your... More

Meandering our way back through the back roads & lanes of the beautiful Sussex country side on our way to Brighton when we came across the sign post for Bentley. It was the motor museum that was of interest. Silly me, I presumed it was going to be a display of Bentley motor cars. How wrong was I! While, yes,... More

We went to Bentley as we had heard good things. However we left feeling really disappointed. The gardens we appalling lots of dying flowers and plants. The hedges were unkempt and scruffy. We tried to look around the house but this was closed and only opened Wednesday through to Sunday. We checked the site before leaving and it didn't tell... More

I have visited Bentley's over the past 20 years but have haven't been for around 2 years and was shocked by everything I saw. Nothing is being maintained, the gardens use to look lovely but now look tired as do the ponds and wildfowl area, which are in a very poor unkept state. The children's playground isn't being maintained to... More

Thank you for your review. We try to answer as many as possible I'm sorry that your review didn't include the areas of Bentley which others seem to enjoy so much. Our small team is always trying to attend to areas that need maintenance and the the children's play area is certainly one of them. The gardens are also undergoing... More
