Pleasant, low key day out.

Spent a very pleasant few hours here just wandering around. And an added bonus was the Wealden food festival held in the grounds - and it was all free!!

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon walking through the wildlife reserve. It was well maintained and signposted. My husband loved the motor museum - staff were well informed and enthusiastic which was great to see. This is assessable to everyone. Will return to this venue.

OK, there's loads of potential for this to be a great place to visit. Lots of open space and natural habitats for the wildlife. But from the point of entry its mostly downhill. The ticket office and shop area looks very dated and just not very bright and wecoming. Very old stock, and not much of it, faded and uninspired.... More

The cars are exceptional. Shame ther is not more of them. The grounds are just beautiful. Lovely place for a walk and to look at all those birds. Definitely worth a visit. Only criticism is the price.

The Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum is a fantastic day out for all of the family. A stunning collection of cars and with friendly faces to explain each vehicle's origin. There are some beauties here The wildfowl area is surprisingly big and surely one for the kids to enjoy and learn about some interesting animals. Recommended!

We have often visited Bentley with our grandchildren. Yesterday we took our niece's little boy who is three and half. He enjoyed the motor museum which is always a treat. It is a very pleasant area to walk around with the birds and he really enjoyed the train ride which is a bargain at £1. The adventure playground is okay... More

The brochure does not do this attraction justice. A peaceful afternoon spent in a wonderful British setting. A courtyard cafe with outdoor seating serving tasty food with delightful views over the beautiful Sussex countryside. Historic car collection quite unique with a mix of cars and bikes brought back memories, especially the AA motorbike. A ride on the 71/4 inch gauge... More

Just got back from an afternoon out here, unlike other places (national trust etc) that let you borrow a manual wheelchair, Bentley let's you borrow a powerful (10mph) mobility scooter so disabled visitors can access everywhere. This is excellent! The bird area is very interesting and the woodland is nice too. It's a lovely place to visit, and I'm incredibly... More
