Awd Tuts holiday cottage dates back to the days of King Charles 1st. This Grade Two listed, 17th century cottage built in 1640 is now almost 400 years old. In January 1649, on a bitterly cold day, the self-righteous and arrogant King Charles was sentenced to death for treason. He was taken to the execution block in London’s Whitehall Palace, where a single swing of the executioner’s axe rendered him headless! Those medievil days are now long gone, however…

…in modern day, Awd Tuts is now a beautiful, modernised and comfortable self-catering holiday cottage near the harbourside and restaurants.

It is situated within Whitby’s ancient, cobbled streets. The area is classed as Whitby’s ‘old town’ and is only 20 metres away from the historic fishing harbour, numerous bars, restaurants, tea-rooms, shops and galleries.


The living accommodation offers you centrally-heated accommodation, large flat screen TV with Skysat viewing and free, unrestricted broadband Wi-Fi for your convenience.

This rental holiday home sleeps up to 5 persons comfortably. Our cosy two bedroom vacation cottage in Whitby is a real home from home.

This contemporary, homely and comfortable holiday cottage is situated in a private development on the banks of the River Esk. Set in a beautiful and picturesque conservation area.   Riverside Cottage is surrounded by trees, woodland and numerous grassed areas. The views from the cottage and private balcony are framed by the magnificent arches of the towering 18th Century Larpoool Viaduct. The views from the viaduct top are fantastic and cover much of Whitby right up to the ruins of Whitby Abbey. The now disused railway viaduct provides a starting point for an easy walk into the centre of Whitby.

Vacation rental property

The cottage location is ideal for either a peaceful break or more active holiday – the choice is yours! Watch the constantly changing scenery outside our cottage when the river ebbs and flows as the tide changes four times a day. 

The riverside location is ideal for nature-lovers. Animals such as seals can sometimes be seen swimming in the river alongside herons, ducks and many other birds which  frequent the nearby riverbanks. This calm, serene setting provides a perfect getaway location for families or couples seeking a romantic break in a wonderful setting.
