Wow! Can't praise this house enough. We had a lovely stay. Malcolm was very welcoming and helpful, and we loved walking around the beautiful countryside near Upper Denton House.

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!

Nic M.

We had a fantastic experience at Upper Denton. The accommodation is really well set up for big groups with loads of space to socialise and a large dining area and kitchen, lovely garden with stunning views from three hot-tubs and plenty of bedrooms.

Our trip was one to remember and we’d return in a heartbeat! Malcolm was superb and on hand for anything we needed
