Upper Denton House is spectacular for large groups and we had a wonderful stay. We drove there for a hen party with the girls and would love to go back. We relaxed in the hot tub, had a lot of space, the bedrooms were cosy and Malcolm, the owner, was at our service and very helpful. It had all the amenities we needed and I couldn't recommend it enough.

A great venue for group get-togethers. You will find a mixture of doubles, twins, triples and singles with en-suite in most. Communal areas are very spacious with plenty of storage space with cooking and cleaning facilities. We can not recommend this beautiful house enough. Incredible views from the hot tub!

We booked this place during a weekend in late July 2017. I was able to get there for the final two nights. A delightful house with a large kitchen, spacious dining room, as well as a separate bar area and lounge. We also really enjoyed the hot tub as well as the fascinating Hadrian's Wall route.
