Serenity

Serenity was handcrafted with care from reclaimed oak whisky barrels in a husband-and-wife workshop in the mountains of Scotland. She emanates the gentle mindfulness of a couple in love with their materials and experienced in their craft.

Now living in Bristol, with a compact exterior and a cleverly flexible interior,  Serenity is just as suited to a romantic trip for two as to taking a family of 4 adventuring through the countryside & coastlines of the South West (or further afield!)

Although simple & rustic in feel, Serenity has enough mod cons to keep everyone 'serene' - with a handy reversing camera, bluetooth speaker, gas heating, and luxurious memory foam mattress topper for the double bed.
