Go to a scrappy...
Are you sure that's the extent of the damage and there's no rad damage or anything?
Sorry I can't help you on prices, I've no idea about renaults.
Might be worth checking on eBay?

I dont believe there's no inside damage, scared to open the bonnet incase it doesnt close again,
how much would a mechanic charge to replace it if i was to supple the parts?

That depends on how long it'd take to do it. Estimate £40 per hour and you shouldn't be too far wrong (might even have change).
You can't not look under the bonnet, because frankly, if you need a new bumper and bonnet, you might well be needing some internals. If you've bent the chassis the car's never going to be roadworthy so will need scrapping.
Open the bonnet, take a look. See how well the rad's fairing and anything else near the front. No point buying a bonnet and bumper if you're going to end up scrapping it.

From personal experience... Don't know how severe yours is so assuming ~£400

You need to open the bonnet and have a look.
Has the slam panel buckled? If it has that will need straightening before the new bonnet will fit.
