We enjoyed a sunny Sunday here yesterday and I have to say, I was surprised by Bentley. It was our first visit and we will be back again. I didnt think wildfowl would be so interesting, but they were beautiful and it was lovely to just wander around in the sunshine. PLEASE NOTE: The house is closed during the winter,... More

Thank you so much for your review. I'm delighted that the tearoom staff were so helpful, and that you had an enjoyable day. In autumn and winter we do have our hands full with maintenance and groundwork, but we pride ourselves on a certain 'understated charm'. We will revive the website in December/January to provide a little bit more information... More

We had a lovely day yesterday at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. It was great to wander through the wildfowl reserve and feed the ducks and geese; one of the peacocks even displayed for us! The motor museum is always a hit with my little boy! The star of our day yesterday though was one of the best roast dinners... More

I loved the motor museum. I took my two youngest grandsons here on a damp day which spoiled our fun rather and tired us out a bit. The Wild Fowl bit is not so much fun when it's raining, for me. Food seems pretty much OK. They were able to provide sandwiches for the boys without a buttery spread as... More

£49 to take my family was far too much , it's basically a load of trade tents and any rides you want to go on involves more money , enjoyed the day but won't go again
