    Denton House, in the hamlet of Ravenscar, stands in an elevated position 600 feet above sea level overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay and the North York Moors. The horizon is 33 miles distant on a clear day. This detached home was built in 1993 from locally quarried stone blocks and has oil central heating and two log burning stoves. A garden room, also constructed from stone blocks is heated by electric oil radiator, and contains a sink unit, garden chairs, television with built in DVD player. The main feature of the room is a games table which can be used for either American pool, air hockey and table tennis. A lockable garage may be used for the storage of bikes. The garden, which overlooks a field immediately behind the house and towards the valley and bay, has two patio areas, one behind the house and the other next to the garden room. Both enjoy a sunny aspect for the majority of sunny days. Sheep graze in the field at certain times of the year and dog owners need to be aware that this is sheep country. There is a modern kitchen and a handy downstairs shower room. The second floor has an open plan landing with sofa looking out towards the moors.
    Denton House is situated within a few hundred yards of the Cleveland Way route, which is perfect for guests who enjoy walking. There is a path leading down to a beach from the clifftop, or alternative road access to the beach via a track 1.5 miles away. There is also the old railway line which ran through Ravenscar between Scarborough and Whitby until the 1960’s which serves as a mainly gentle cycle track for the family. The station platform, tunnel and bridges are still in place along the 21 mile line. The beach below the cliffs at Ravenscar can be accessed by footpath across the golf course or by the disused railway line. Vehicle access is by a scenic single track road leading down the valley to a sandy beach. The foreshore of Robin Hood’s Bay is very well known for ammonite fossils and searching for them can be good fun for children of all ages.
    The larger resorts of Whitby and Scarborough are just a short drive away. Whitby is a very busy working harbour and town, and is famous for the Dracula and Heartbeat locations and the exploits of Captainn Cook. Not forgetting award winning fish restaurants. Alternatively, Scarborough is a large Victorian seaside resort famous for its two bays, the North Bay being the quieter of the two. The long marine drive is over three miles of flat walking and is ideal for a pleasant evening stroll. Shop 8 miles, pub 2 miles and restaurant 500 yards.

    Denton house is a great location for Whitby and Scarborough and surrounding north York’s to explore. Ravenscar is a great area for walks and bikes but has little by way of amenities. The house itself is spacious and comfortable, has all you could need for your stay. My young children loved a particular sheep that would peer over the garden wall for them to pet. Beaches are a short drive away shame there is no easy way to the shore in ravenscar.

    A lovely place to stay with beautiful views. We went as a family of 8 and there was plenty of space, the kids really enjoyed the pool room. The only negative is that there isn't a little local shop. Would recommend to others.

    I think the cottage was perfect for a large group, but would benefit further if an en suite bathroom could be incorporated. Also if the back garden could be made secure ie fence/gate placed at the side of property.

    Cottage was spotlessly clean with plenty of storage and modern bathrooms with superb showers. There were plenty of logs, washing liquid, toilet rolls etc. Also lovely to arrive to find tea, coffee and milk. The house is warm and spacious (much bigger than it looks on photos). The second twin room is the only room which is a little squashed. The beds are very close together and one of them is tangled up with the curtains. You need to share a wardrobe with another room. Having two reception rooms was excellent - the teenagers were happy to take over a room for X box and playing on their devices while the rest enjoyed space for reading books by the fire. Garden was lovely, grass cut, plenty of furniture and the Games Room. Only reason for marking down facilities was the lack of glasses (large tumblers for everyday use) and no non-stick pans or veg peeler. Cooking is always tricky when it’s not your own kitchen but this one needs a top up on the basics. All in all, a great base for a family holiday with the grandparents with gentle walks and trips to Scarborough and Whitby.

    We had a lovely time at the house the views are stunning. Great location to visit both Scarborough and Robin Hood Bay. Lots of nice places to eat in reasonable driving distance. The only negative was that the garden was a little untidy but considering it was early in the season it’s to be expected, the weather we had was beautiful for March so we would have liked to have enjoyed the garden a little more. Would definitely recommend.

    Good information pack provided about the property and location. Very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of logs for the two fires. Good level of cleanliness. On our trip the heating and hot water systems were not fully functional (as explained in a note left for us), however we did have heating and hot water.

    House was very clean and had all amenities you would expect. Unfortunately the lack of hot water meant cold showers and the tv reception was extremely poor. Owners knew there were problems with boiler but didnt tell us before we got there. Should have to boil water to do washing up. Water and TV issues left us underwhelmed I am afraid for the price paid. Not value for money - sorry

    The start of our week at Denton House got off to a bad start with us being rung by the agent 2 hours before we were to take it over telling us the boiler was broken and we most probably would not be able to move in. Fortunately we were able to move in with the boiler being fixed on the Sunday. This was the start of a week of problems with both showers leaking, the upstairs one leaking through to the living room and a radiator in one of the bedrooms leaking quite badly saturating the carpet. There were no instructions on how to use any of the appliances, so it was a game try it until it worked. There was no WiFi code, luckily it was still on the back of the router. Most of the crockery was dirty and required cleaning before use and the ground floor needed a good hoover, and to round it off we had to play bin watcher to see when the locals put their bins out for collection. Overall a pretty bad week at Denton House. Not good value for money.

    This was a very spacious house in a stunning location - gorgeous views from the back, and lovely wildlife (a badger visited the garden and spent ages eating there, giving us a wonderful chance to observe!). It was also very clean when we arrived and had a huge amount of storage space - we have never stayed anywhere with so much! However, there were a few issues. There was no information/instructions provided about any of the appliances in the house (as you usually find in holiday lets) so it was a case of trying to work things out - the TV in the front room did not seem to be working at all, and one of the fan ovens was blowing cold air instead of hot. The heating/ hot water was a particular problem, either all on or all off and the water from the taps was scalding - dangerous for children. There was no local information provided (except a stack of tourist leaflets) either, so we had no idea when the bins were due to be put out, and obviously missed the collection whilst we were out for the day. As previous reviews mention, the kitchen layout is strange and results in lots of walking backwards and forwards to the fridge/sink/cooker etc, and the floorboards are extremely creaky - an problem at night when trying not to wake anyone else! There was also very little in terms of cooking equipment (saucepans etc). The games room was a bonus, but with no lighting (other than one lamp that worked) it wasn't able to be fully enjoyed on a dark autumn evening. It is a comfortable house in a lovely location, but there are areas that could be improved - and the advertised welcome pack consisted of a packet of biscuits, stale-looking coffee/tea/sugar in storage jars, and out-of-date milk. Hardly very welcoming! A visitors book might allow guests to leave some constructive criticism...

    We share previous review comments about the kitchen/dining room layout. Our first non welcoming view was one of dirty dining room floor and coffee stained and dirty high chair tray. Further examination revealed stained carpets, seat covers and surface dust on furniture. The vacuum cleaner was full and the outside bins were overflowing. (This has been mentioned on reviews from way back.) The advertised 'welcome pack' consisted of 4 pints of milk and a packet of ginger biscuits which was mean and insensitive given that I had advised that my wife was dairy intolerant. There were several maintenance issues including broken blind pulls, self closing fire doors held back with doorstops or in one case two lots of string. The heating was either all on or all off unless you wanted to continuously turn individual ones on and off. The information on the website regarding access to the beach/sea was misleading and economical with the truth. This location may be suitable for energetic, fit adults but in my opinion not for someone with small children
