The Mushroom House is a stone-built terraced cottage in a small row nestling on the eastern side of Rosedale about 1.5 miles outside Rosedale Abbey village. It is a tranquil setting on a road which ends further up the dale and so has little traffic. The view from the front of the house looks out right across the valley of Rosedale which is populated by farmhouses and extensive fields.
The row of old iron-miners' cottages is made up of a mixture of permanent residences and second homes, none of the others of which are commercial holiday lets. The area is consquently very quiet and peaceful.
The house has 3 bedrooms upstairs (1 with super-king-sized bed, 1 with double bed and 1 with single top bunk and a child's pull-out bed) and lounge, kitchen and bathroom downstairs. We have decorated and furnished the house to a high standard so that our guests will feel well looked-after, relaxed and at home. The comfortable lounge has two sofas and an open fire. All three bedrooms are newly decorated in individual styles with lovely views from all windows.
The house has a modern and well-equipped kitchen as well as a modern bathroom with bath, shower, basin & WC (towels not provided). At the front of the house is a stone patio which looks out over beautiful Rosedale. At the rear is a secluded lawn backing onto the fields and ideal for sitting quietly or barbecuing.

We are Michael & Jackie Reeder (accountant & teacher respectively) and live in Sheffield. We have a 26-year old son (budding entrepreneur) and a 22-year old daughter (medical student). We both grew up in Stockport but have lived in Sheffield for over 30 years now. We bought the house in 2003 and for the 10 years up until 2013 we have worked to bring the house up to its current standard whilst at the same time enjoying many happy times there and on the North Yorkshire coast with friends and family. 2013 is the first year the house has been available as a holiday let and our decision to let it out has coincided with Jackie reducing the number of days she works as a secondary school science teacher. The house is furnished and decorated as a second home for us and we hope it feels like home and not just somewhere to sleep whilst on holiday in North Yorkshire.
Jackie Reeder purchased this cottage in 2003
This house has been both our escape from our busy city lives and the base for some wonderful times with friends and family. Its location in the lovely surroundings of Rosedale with just a 20 minute walk down into Rosedale Abbey village was ideal and it felt far enough away from the rat race to relax the instant we got there.
The peace and quiet (you can truly often only hear a cockerel crowing or an owl hooting when you sit out on the front patio or in the back garden).
The view out across Rosedale is lovely at any time of year.
Rosedale Abbey village with its couple of small tea-shops and two nice drinking/eateries is just the right size with friendly local people but never too busy.
The village is in an ideal location for countryside pursuits, visits to the seaside and days out at the many attractions in the surrounding area.
We spent a few days in The Mushroom House and had the most wonderful holiday in the totally quiet, peaceful and beautiful surroundings of Rosedale Abbey. The house is very comfortable, very well equipped and very tastefully furnished. Everything you might need is there and, even more importantly; everything works !!! Whoever decorated and equipped this house must have thought very carefully about what any holiday makers could wish for during their stay.
The location is wonderful, remote but also so close to the next village, to shops or restaurants and pubs. The views from the living room of the house are superb and we loved sitting and eating our evening meals outside in the front garden. We were lucky as the weather was very good and we also had some very enjoyable walks in the nearby countryside.
Dans cette très jolie maison j'ai adoré les "petits détails" qui font toute la différence ...le petit lavabo dans la chambre principale, la table qui se plie dans la salle de séjour et les chaises qui disparaissent dans le placard afin de donner plus de place, les draps et couvertures de duvet en vrai cotton etc...
Ayant passé une si bonne semaine dans la maison nous avons décidé de réserver à nouveau pour l'année prochaine et nous recommanderons cet endroit si joli et pittoresque à nos amis en Angleterre mais aussi en France.
A well equipped, warm and very comfortable house in beautiful location. Excellent walking straight from the front door and splendid food/drink at the Coach House Inn. Hope to return.
Clean, cosy, clever space saving features. Quiet and so beautiful. Such a smooth booking and arrival/departure experience.
I enjoyed my stay very warm and cosy. Lovely walks very nice place to visit. I never stayed for the full 5 days as it started snowing really badly. If I visit again I'd come earlier in the year. Apart from the snowfall excellent place to visit and lovely cottage. Thank you.
We had a short break and the house is very nice. Clean and tidy and had everything we needed for a short break.
The cottage has everything you could want for a relaxing get-away-from- it-all stay. Tastefully decorated and well-equipped. The cottage seems much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside!
A perfect retreat for a family with wonderful home comforts and a lovely open fire, fantastically equipped kitchen and the comfiest super king size bed we have ever slept on!
This is a roomy cottage for 2 adults and 2 teenagers and it also has the all important wifi!!
Just over half an hour from Whitby and a little further to Scarborough. Pickering is also about 20 minutes away where you can find small gift shops and supermarkets to stock up.
The cottage itself is remote and has beautiful views-this is the perfect cottage to get away from daily life and relax with family.
Mustn't forget the awesome variety of books and family games available, -also a great tv with Netflix and lots of channels.
Thank you to the owners for being very accommodating and for their excellent communication and arrangements prior to our stay!
Rosedale Abbey is a small village in the North Yorkshire Moors surrounded by beautiful countryside ideal for those who love walking or cycling. The house is 1.5 miles outside the village in a tranquil setting with great views. The village, which has two charming cafes and two welcoming pub/restaurants serving delicious food, is popular for visitors but never too busy. There is also a fun 9-hole pitch & putt golf course on a hillside as well as Gillies Jones designer glassworks.
Whether you want a relaxing time away from it all, a trip to to the coast, a walk or cycle in the North York Moors or trips to stately homes and gardens all topped off with afternoon tea or a refreshing drink and a tasty meal then all are within easy reach of The Mushroom House.
It is a 30 minute scenic drive over the moors to the famous seaside town of Whitby where you will find numerous cafes, restaurants, interesting shops, and all the usual seaside attractions. Enjoy a walk around the bustling harbour, an ice-cream on the beach and an excellent fish and chip supper in a restaurant overlooking the sea. Sandsend Beach and Runswick Bay are only 35 minutes drive from the mushroom house and are wonderful for walking and swimming. Fresh Whitby crab and fish are often on the menu in local cafes and restaurants. Scarborough is about an hour away. Robin Hood's bay and Staithes are charming little seaside places that are well worth a visit.
