This was our fourth visit to serenity this year but this time we stayed in the static Fendt caravan owned by the site. Yet again the owners could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable and restful. We had three nights just before the site closed at the end of the season. The facilities were just as clean and fresh as the beginning of the season. We had a great meal at the Brown Cow and as always our dog Jak was made so welcome and enjoyed his biscuits.
We are so looking forward to the site reopening in 2014!
What a wonderful site! There were so many extra little touches; fresh flowers in the showers (which were free and kept immaculately), washing up liquid provided in the very homely washing up/laundry area; and you could even help yourself to a hot drink and a biscuit for just 50p while you waited for your washer to finish! There was also a cosy cabin with tourist information, games etc. And free Wi-Fi. We enjoyed a very good meal in the friendly village pub (The Brown Cow I think?). There is a bus stop just outside the site, convenient for Whitby etc. The owners and wardens could not have been more helpful or welcoming, and we would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone! Looking forward to our next visit.
This is a delightful site tucked away behind the main road through the village, not that you'd know it. Normally we wouldn't stay at a site this large but chose to as it was the recommended site for the (excellent) Roots North music festival. Our previous experience of larger sites is that you are piled almost on top of each other, the staff are unhelpful, there are copious meaningless rules, and you therefore get the feeling you are being ripped-off. Not so at Serenity. The welcome was incredibly friendly with the owner (I think he was the owner) taking a genuine interest.
The pitch was large with a great view towards the moors, the toilets and showers were spotless, and the whole site lovingly maintained. Music aside, it was a genuine pleasure to stay there anyway. In the village, the Brown Cow is a fantastic 'proper' locals pub, extremely friendly and the food, although simple, is first class and almost entirely (including the brilliant chips) home made. The fish & chip shop is also excellent and the butcher first class. I couldn't get a phone signal anywhere in the village on an O2 phone but my partner had good reception on her Orange. There is Wi-Fi available in a very comfortably furnished room. Everything about the site and it's management makes you feel welcome. Our misgivings prior to visiting were completely quashed within minutes of arrival.
Serenity has been a favourite site of ours for years due to it's peaceful atmosphere, clean facilities, friendly owners and location. The new owners have added their extra touches such as the clothes drying area, free showers and the wifi room. They have managed to improve a site that was already one of the best. The village of Hinderwell has two pubs, butcher, chippy and shop and on the bus route to Whitby. Both Staithes and Runswick are within walking distance[steep climbs back]. We are always given a friendly welcome in the Brown Cow pub where the meals are very good and substantial. We will continue to return to Serenity whenever we are holidaying in the area.
Great site, friendly owners too. Nothing was a bother. Big pitches, free hot water, washing up liquid supplied, all eco friendly too. Lovely fresh flowers in the loo and around other areas. Free WiFi, which reached us, but there's is a cabin you can use, , which is very comfy with couches. You can charge your phone etc there too. There are leaflets, books. Lots of information. We will be back for another visit. Lovely areas around.
This is, without doubt, one of the best sites we've stayed at, ever. They have a comfortable 'wi-fi' room set aside for visitors, full of books you can borrow, tourist information and electric sockets to charge up anything you like, all free, as is the wi-fi connection. The laundry room and kitchen has free hot water, a fridge, freezer and kettle as well as washing and drying equipment, which is the only thing you have to pay for. The showers are spotless and users are asked to give their shower a mop (provided)for the comfort of the next user. Toilets are spotlessly clean and fragrant! All hot water is free.
The campsite is on relatively level ground, especially the small camping field at the end of the site.
The new owners are really friendly and helpful and always willing to help with anything and to listen to your comments. It's clear they're relatively new and that they have taken on board everything everyone has said to them. The place is full of lovely little homely touches as well; flowers, little ornaments, a comments book, good quality soap in the loos and so. It really was a joy to stay here and actually, they could charge a lot more for what they're providing.
Watch for the charming ducks that wander around the site twice each day, just waiting for campers to feed them! so Funny!
