Having played a part in Whitby's history for over 307-years, Spyglass 1708 was fully renovated, re-decorated and re-furnished in 2015. With its new 'classic look', Spyglass 1708 is one of the best holiday cottages in Yorkshire

The building work on the Grade II listed building was done by local Stone Mason's from Robert Harrison & Sons; together with expert interior-design fit-out by Rachel Mclane Ltd of Malton.

Rachel used her expertise to furnish and decorate Spyglass 1708, giving it a luxurious yet contemporary feel.
