About Mr. Dennis Lee

We are a recently retired school teacher and quantity surveyor with two grown up children and one grandchild. We enjoy entertaining visitors, holidays, dancing, walking, gardening and looking after our animals.

Mr. Dennis Lee purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Mr. Dennis Lee chose Yorkshire Dales

The property is a newly converted stable block in a quiet location just outside the village.

Originally close to a sand and gravel quarry, this has now been turned into a large lake and wildlife area just a stone's throw from the door step.

We are in a very central location with a choice of walking venues, including the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors.

Our close proximity to the A1 has the added advantage of making Leeds, York, Durham and Newcastle easily accessible.

What makes this cottage unique

Having lived in the area for 40 years we are well placed to advise our visitors on the best walks and places to visit in order to help them make the most their holiday.

We have entertained visitors from various countries including Norway, Switzerland, Spain, Australia and South Africa and are able to suggest places to visit that will cover a variety of interests.

The property has the advantage of being next to our house so that we are on hand to help with any queries, but is not overlooked, so maintaining your privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'What a perfect place to stay for those who love walking in the Yorkshire Dales but at the same time want easy access to an abundance of places of interest for those inevitable wet days; we particularly liked Richmond with its castle, noted garden at Millgate House and the wonderful Station bistro, cinema and art gallery. The Stable is a beautiful conversion, tastefully furnished, flooded with sunlight and with every need catered for. The owners extensive garden provides a wonderful retreat for days when relaxing by the pond with a book is all that is needed but at the same time walks from iconic dales villages such as Reeth and Middleham are not far away. The owners live on the property and were always available with advice about the best walks and places of interest. We loved it and will be back at the earliest opportunity!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Stable. The property is set in beautiful grounds, was absolutely immaculate and is equipped and furnished to a very high standard. Dennis was very helpful when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know about the cottage. He'd even put milk and eggs in the fridge for us, which was much-appreciated. The property is well-situated for visiting many places in North Yorkshire. We particularly enjoyed our days out to Beamish outdoor museum, Whitby, Helmsley and Pickering and will definitely be back, hopefully before the end of the year.

So peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The Stables is a lovely 'home from home'. We spent 4 nights there and it was very comfortable. The lawned area at the front is so restful.

There are lots of things to do locally for all ages and abilities.

Will definitely be planning a return trip.

The Stables, Scorton

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this property. On arrival we were welcomed by Mr Lee who was very helpful and offered his assistance should we have any problems. The "Welcome Pack" was very generous and certainly was welcome.

The premises were spotlessly clean and extremely well appointed. The building is in the owner's garden which is very large, beautifully kept and peaceful. We were entertained by "Ben" the lovely dog who mysteriously appeared when he could smell food, and by "Percy" the automatic lawn mower who bumbled around the garden all day, happily keeping the grass trimmed.

Beautiful property and garden

  • 5 of 5

The Stables were lovely to stay in, although it rained a lot the property was bright and warm, a lot of thought has gone into the beautiful finish of this property. The owners were also lovely and helpful. Will definately'stay again, so close to the A1 but if was so peaceful and quiet, you could have been miles from everywhere.

Amazing modern cottage, perfect location! Loved it x

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of May for 4 nights and we were not disappointed. The cottage is in a perfect location, very quiet and so peaceful. The owners Janet and Dennis were so nice, very welcoming and left us a lovely Welcome pack of coffee / biscuits and even eggs from the chickens on the farm. The cottage was so modern, it had everything we needed and more.

Thank you for everything and we will definitely be back again soon x x
