About rachael glover

I recently bought Serendipity and have enjoyed giving it a overhaul, I want my guests to feel wanted and relaxed, I have gone to great effort with attention to detail to make Serendipity stand out, I enjoy sitting on the patio which is south facing and a real sun trap, my two pomchis love running around on the patio, I own a cleaning company which is why I allow pets as I have the facility and know how to ensure its always immaculate for my guests

Why rachael glover chose World

why amazing calm peaceful so close to York but far enough away not to be too noisy, and the hot tub is just the icing on the cake, serendipity is at the back of the park so its so peaceful I just love been there

What makes this caravan unique

Our amazing Hot tub has to be one of the best features especially at night, sat on a south facing veranda with outdoor seating and barbeque facilities. Our individually styled interior with an abundance of personal touches, Sky tv in our sitting room, a perfect get away and so close to York centre.

Rachael was an excellent host and Serendipity is a wonderful place to stay. It is so comfortable with lots of little details to make you feel really at home. The hot tub really made our weekend and we aim to return. I would recommend Serendipity, it is a home from home.

Peaceful beautiful Serendipity

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is set in a beautiful peaceful location over looking fields at the very back of the caravan park. It is beautifully looked after and decorated. Definitely home from home. It was immaculately clean and everything you will need is provided. When we arrived a welcome pack was left for us which is a fantastic, bread, chocolates, milk and wine. You could spend a week just in the caravan to get away from it all with games, movies and Xbox provided. The hot tub is wonderful and relaxing in a private location so not over looked by neighbours. Rabbits, squirrels and ducks wonder freely. Would recommend to all. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Lovely. Very clean and cosy home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights at Serendipity. The owner left a basket of treats and several thoughtful gestures, fresh flowers and supplies for the little things you might forget. Plenty towels, nice fresh bed linen, excellent facilities. Useful kitchen equipment, coffee maker, crockery, wine glasses. A well maintained hot tub and fantastic hospitality above and beyond what you would expect. The owner is very customer focused and my grandsons loved all the xbox games and dvd's. We all want to go back again. Thanks Rachel.

Amazing caravan in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The caravan is fabulous, a proper home from home and the owner Rachael has thought of everything. The welcome goodies are a lovely touch and very unexpected. The kids loved the x box one and the full sky package but more importantly they loved the hot tub. The caravan is spotless and the beds are really comfy. The site is great too, not too big but has a pool and play area which again the kids loved. We've really enjoyed our 4 nights and will definitely be booking again, thanks for a wonderful stay xx

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it's very helpful for future guests to get real feed back, it's always nice to read our reviews it's very important that our guests enjoy there stay with us at serendipity. I agree the hot tub is amazing it's great fun, I love it in winter when it's cold outside and the hot tub is all steamy, we are always looking at ways to improve serendipity, we will be changing the layout of the patio for winter with a sofa and patio heater perfect for going in the tub then snuggling on the sofa with a blanket and hot chocolate.....can't wait Thank you again and I hope to see you all again.
