Denton is a hamlet in the civil parish of Cuddesdon and Denton in Oxfordshire. Its toponym is derived from the Old English den-tun meaning "valley farmstead". Denton is in a fold of the landscape, between the two hills on which Cuddesdon and Garsington stand.

Denton is an ancient manor and had its own civil parish, but in the twentieth century it was merged with neighbouring Cuddesdon.
