Great place to visit

Amazing array of different birds & vintage cars, a large venue so could be a day out with picnic or eat at the rather nicely old fashioned cafe.

We had a lovely afternoon at Bentley with the children and grandchildren....it was a warm but overcast day and there were not many people there for a Sunday. We went on the little train which the young ones loved and walked all around looking at the birds. There was a lovely friendly lady in the shop. We didnt do the... More

Wonderful day out for all the family. If you like both cars and birds you're in for a real treat. Not only this, but they have a miniature railway, which was such a lot of fun!

My daughter and I took my young Grandson to Bentley Wildfowl Park last week and were very disappointed at the run down state of the park, the low level safety fencing was lacking in lots of the areas by lakes,description of the bird signs were missing or illegible, and there was only about 3 other visitors in the park. We... More

We have just had a really lovely afternoon at Bentley. We were greeted by a very friendly lady in the shop who made us welcome and told us about the recent changes with the wildfowl areas. We had lunch in the cafe (all day breakfast) that was absolutely delicious and served once again by happy helpful staff. The birds are... More

We went when the kids went back to school, so very quiet. Went late afternoon on a very sunny day. Lovely shed of old cars and bikes. The grounds were lovely. Enjoyed looking at the fowls.

We visited on 5th September with our elderly mother who is a wheelchair user. Staff were helpful at the tearooms telling us we could use the other entrance as the proper entrance was a bit of a tight squeeze. I think we were fortunate that there was only one other person in the tearooms the time. The wildfowl area was... More

Bentley House Wildfowl and Motor Museum and miniture railway. Cannot decide what it is, No relation to Bentley Cars by the way. Smallish Motor Museum with loan cars, not bad in itself but not worth the entry fee. Wildfowl large park and lots of fowl, too many feral ducks taking over. Birds look in good heath but site needs work,... More

We visited in the middle of August but it was not very busy. The little craft centre was lovely and we spent ages admiring the dolls houses. The children (aged 7 and 12) really liked the motor museum - it was big enough to have a good choice of vehicles but not so many that they got bored. We then... More
