This is the first time that we stayed at Thurston manor. I would give it 5 stars. It's such a lovely place whether you have kids, dogs, a family or you're a couple. Our lodge was perfect, much more modern than we expected. It was like brand new. I would highly recommend this resort.

Just returned from another excellent holiday at Thurston Manor with our Grandchildren. Thurston Manor has an excellent bar and restaurant and food is very good, a particular favourite of my wife and myself was the apple and strawberry crumble with ice cream. There are numerous beaches within easy access of Thurston Manor and a favourite of our Grandchildren was Cove with Thorntonloch a close second.
