Summary : Abbot's House on supposed site of a hospital or hermitage (founded 1109-14). The brothers who looked after the poor were transferred to Whitby Abbey at an unknown date. The house that now exists on the site was built between 1820 and 1870.
More information : (NZ 84110061) Abbot's House on supp site of (NAT) Hermitage (NR) (1)

A hospital or hermitage dedicated to St Mary established by
Henry I for the soul of Queen Maud and her heirs in 1109-14.
Subsequently Henry sanctioned the surrender of the hermitage to
Whitby Abbey. In 1206 King John confirmed this ownership.

In 1335 the abbot's close was at a place called Frerested. A
tenement called the Armitage, alias the Abbot House, was
mentioned in 1585. There is no evidence that after the hermitage
passed to Whitby that it became a cell of the abbey. (2-4)
