Booking Enquiry Form
Awd Tut (Old Tom) was a fisherman and the owner of this Whitby cottage in the 1800s. He lived here for many years with his family. You can see Awd Tut in the sepia photo below taken at the turn of the century.  Our cottage, now a Grade Two, 17th century listed building was originally  built in 1640 and used as a fisherman’s home for many years. The cottage was not maintained however and became a derelict, run-down building in the 1970s when it was in danger of being torn down as unsafe by the local council. Fortunately, a modern-day descendant of Awd Tut who didn’t want to see the cottage demolished, bought it and rebuilt it as it would have been a shame for the building to simply disappear.
