Dear Rosie, Thank you very much for your review. We're delighted that you enjoyed your visit. In response to your suggestions, I'm pleased to say that - having refurbished our gift shop, we will be increasing the stock through 2016. The playground is being rebuilt and should be a lot more adventurous and bold. Thanks again for your comments More

We have had several visits here and it caters for varying family interests. The walks are made very interesting by the wild life and the play area was great as we picknicked with the family

We visited Bentley Wildfowl in a group of around seven; family and a friends of the family. The motor museum was visited by my Dad who absolutely loved it after years in a career building kit cars. My friends, sisters and Mum loved seeing all the birds and, at the time there were also the cutest little piglets on site... More

The wild fowl reserve was simply beautiful - full of birds which were seemingly unafraid of the camera so wonderful photo opportunities to be had. We were incredibly lucky with the weather - unbroken sunshine and autumn colours starting in the beautiful trees. After strolling through the delightful bird reserve we then stopped by for a snack at the cafe... More

Visited today as a family group. Loved the cars and then walking round the assortment of wildfowl. The children thoroughly enjoyed feeding the ducks (duck food available on site). The motor museum was very interesting but not so large the children got bored. Loved the vehicles. The assortment of duck, swans, flamingos, storks, peacosks etc made everything a lovely afternoon.... More

The motor museum is quite small but it brings back lots of memories, some of the old motor bikes I've actually owned over the years. The house is a little restricted as to what you are allowed to see, but the gardens and ducks are well worth the walk

We went mainly to see the cars but really enjoyed the walk around the wildfowl area. The walk is flat and it was interesting seeing all the wildlife.

I have been to Bentley many times and absolutely love it. The motor museum is a great place to shelter from the rain, there is a wood, play park and miniature train and small house which is not always open to public.

There are lots of activities to keep everyone happy. Enjoy the children's playground and explore the willow tunnels, ride on the *miniature railway and visit the motor museum. Feed the birds in the wildfowl reserve or discover the ancient houses on a woodland walk.
