We were camping at the next door campsite and visited here. The campsite gives you free access for one to the attractions ( house,motor museum and wildfowl centre). My main motivation was to take my three year old on the minature railway which costs £1.00 once you have paid the entry free. There is also a play area which is... More

We went primarily for the Wood Fair on the last day of our holiday. The last time I visited was when I was 10 many moons ago. Was expensive but we ended up staying all day as we loved the atmosphere, sitting on straw bales in the woods right up our street and a bus mans holiday for us as... More

very interesting the birds performed on cue as we progressed around the well signposted route we could easily have used an unlimited amount of bird as when the rustle of a brown bag was heard the birds would convince you that they had not been fed for days!!!most enjoyable day shame the house is not open every day

Paid a visit to Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum 12/06/14. Very pleased and would go again. Paid £8 to get in and was very pleased in what I got for my money. Bird feed was 50p a bag which I didn't find to much of a cost. There was a large selection of birds to see. Some of them even... More

A hidden gem! You could spend all day here! The wildfowl reserve is big and extensive, and walking round it (you need a dry day), you can walk at your own pace. The house (open from midweek afternoons) is included in ticket price (as is Motor Museum and gardens), is lovely, and still a home....and some home! Lovely knowledgeable staff... More

We have been members of Bentley for about the last 7 years and have used it often. We came to renew our membership this year and frankly baulked at the price - on a par with a National Trust Membership! At the same time as raising prices, the kids play area is run down, there is no longer the rope... More

Just visited on a Wednesday and it was very quiet but still a most enjoyable experience. The amount of Wildfowl and the number of different species was quite considerable. The woodland setting was also most impressive and made for an excellent walk. The house was well worth a look and the lady member of staff in there was very helpful... More

I don't know what I was expecting.. But I was quite impressed! Such a great family day out.. Plenty of outdoor space and under cover things to look at and discover. Particularly enjoyed looking at ' the house ' and speaking to the loyal and knowledgeable staff. The woodland walk was amazing .. and educational! The miniature steam train was... More

The motor museum was totally disappointing. We was under the impression that we would be seeing vintage jaguars. There was only 2. The house was also very disappointing. The wildfowl however, was excellent. Teas for 2 was £3.40 which is very expensive. The staff was pleasant. No, we won't be going again.

I'm sorry that you were disappointed by your visit. Several other visitors have had an enjoyable time. We feel that cakes on a counter should be covered in some way and we will try to improve our coffee. Our peacock is moulting, hence the state of tail plumage... More

Used Groupon for our visit and were not disappointed. The site looked fresh and the staff were friendly and helpful. The collection of cars was small, but varied. The train ride was enjoyable for the kids, so was the wildfowl and feeding the animals. The house that was open was just the ground floor, quite small but quirky.
