An excellent site. We would never have considered Hinderwell save for the glowing recommendations of this site from some friends and they were right -the location was perfect with shops and pubs within easy reach but a site that felt like it was in the heart of the country and a pleasant walk to the beach. The facilities were spotless; a credit to the helpful and welcoming owners. Free showers, free wifi, free use of fridge/freezer and a microwave too. There were even fresh flowers in the toilet block and washing up room. Though there were no specific facilities for children, the owner pointed out when we booked that there were other places to play nearby, and we rather like the fact that the site's 'quiet' nature meant that nobody else's kids were running round creating mayhem when ours went to bed. Can't fault it!
Having set off from Bristol to Scotland and back, with a No Plan plan. We arrived in Whitby and received a list of campsites from the Tourist Information Centre. Top of the list was one on Sands End Road which we rang and visited. On arrival we felt that we were lacking due to not having enough scrap metal to sell!?!?! Consequently, we stumbled across Serenity Campsite. My word. What a lovely, gentle and tranquil place to stay. We were greeted by the owner and given a choice of pitches. We were pleasantly stunned by the facilities offered here. You would be stupid to not visit this place if passing through. Our only negative point is that the chickens tried boarding our campervan like Somali pirates. Lol. No. On a serious note. The only negative point was that we couldn't stay longer. But Scotland was calling us. Jayne & Keith xx
(Great work guys. Well done on a beautiful camp site) We have had to enter 'child friendliness' even though we were travelling child free.
We booked this site as we wanted to be mid way between staithes and Whitby. This was our first trip out, a couple of newby's to the motorhome scene. The site was an absolute delight the owner putting customer service first, this reflecting the whole site ! Upon arrival we were taken to our pitch which was big enough to park a couple of double decker buses in. The heated shower / toilet block was first class, immaculately kept. We were shown the pot washing room which housed a tumble dryer and washing machine, again immaculately maintained. We counted a mix of 30 caravans and motorhomes so the site facility's were in use, not just a one off clean!
The purpose built tourist information / board games / rest room / internet access was a nice touch, allowing us to plan our walk using the maps provided. The coastal walk to staithes is a must, what stunning views along the way, staithes itself being a gem hidden between the rough.
We give this site 10 out of 10, planning to return later in the year. Thank you to the owner of the site appley named Serenity, regards Chris and sally
We decided to stay in Serenity, a small caravan as it was march and we didn't trust the weather, as it was we could not of asked for better weather, but we are still glad we stayed in the caravan.
The welcome we received was warm and genuine and the young couple could not be nicer, nothing was too much trouble, and the little finishing touches, ie flowers inside, solar lights on the patio set and complimentary toiletries were a lovely surprise. We will definitely be returning.
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!
