Bentley is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. The parish has an area of 2,299 acres (9.30 km2). The village is located just off the A31 road between Farnham and Alton, being about five miles (8 km) southwest of Farnham and six miles (10 km) northeast of Alton. The village is served by its own railway station, which is about one mile (1.6 km) to the south and is actually situated in the parish of Binsted.

There are two pubs in the village: The Star Inn (named after a car)[1] and The Bull Inn.[2]


Bentley was the location of a Radio 4 and ITV Docu-Drama from the 1990s called The Village, which focused on local residents and their daily lives.[3]

Twinned with Newton Haven and Royston Vasey the village is proud of its culture.
