Thurston Manor Doggy Lodge

Treat your pooch to the paw-fect getaway!

At Verdant Leisure we pride ourselves on the amount of amazing surroundings and accommodation for all to enjoy, including your dog!

Our Thurston Manor park is located in the East Lothian countryside, at the foot of the Lammermuir hills and the stunning East Lothian countryside. Within 40 minutes drive of Edinburgh, and easily accessible from the country’s main eastern route, the A1, Thurston provides the ideal location for holidays with your pet.

The park offers a wealth of facilities with outside dining areas at the complex where you can all enjoy a meal and a drink. There is a fly fishing lake to while away a few hours, and woodland providing the ideal walking area for your pooch. The park itself is a huge 175 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. These grounds and the surrounding area feature 3 great walking routes for you to enjoy during your stay. Simply pick up a map from reception. With the beach just 10 minutes away by car you can also enjoy the feeling of sand beneath your feet, or paws!

A bedroom just for your dog at Thurston Manor doggy lodge

Our holiday parks are not only known for their stunning locations though. We also offer great accommodation that is kept to the highest of standards. We wanted to create a getaway as pet-friendly as possible for our guests who enjoy exploring the countryside with their four-legged friends. That’s why we’ve created an extra special getaway experience for your pet at Thurston Manor.

Our Classic Lodge One (Pets Welcome) at Thurston Manor comes with everything you and your pet will need for a pet-friendly break. There is a large en-suite master bedroom for you, and a dedicated dog bedroom for up to two dogs. The dog bedroom features dog beds and bowls and has accessories you’re bound to love. Throughout the lodge, there are accessories you are bound to love, with dog-themed paintings and artwork, and even cushions on the cosy sofas which are ‘reserved for the dog’. In the kitchen, you will find a goody box full of yummy treats, dog food and poo bags and there will be a lead for walkies.

Allow your pet to relax in comfort on the decking of our doggy lodge at Thurston Manor

Once you’ve experienced a pet-friendly holiday in our unique doggy lodge, you will never want to leave! Plus, with so much to do in the local area, from pet-friendly pubs, beaches, woodland and hill walks, there will be something new to see during every stay! Why not make your stay last longer with holiday home ownership? We have a fantastic range of new and pre-owned caravans and lodges for sale and we would love to show you around while you are on park.

Don’t just take our word for it though, our doggy lodge has been reviewed and recommended by others, including The Dog People Blog!

Our Customers Testimonials

Here's what some of our happy customers have to say.

Just had three nights in a beautiful lodge by the lake which was bigger and more equipped than our house, apart from kitchen utensils. No grater or colander or mixing spoons so cooking wasn't straightforward. That aside what a fantastic place, fishing and swimming and great night entertainment. Definitely will go again.

Just returned from Thurston Manor and we had a lovely time. Key collection was prompt as we were provided a slot for collection which was perfect. On arrival into our Deluxe 2 bedroom lodge it was cosy and clean and I liked the fact that all crockery, glasses and cutlery were in the dishwasher having just been washed so I knew they were clean...

...We stayed in a Lakeside lodge which was a bit far from main entertainment facilities which you are advised when you book, but the location for us was perfect as we travelled with our two dogs. There are two beautiful beaches a short drive away so that was where we spent our time with our dogs. We had a slight issue with our television when we arrived which was promptly rectified by a lovely member of staff who went the extra mile to help us. We will have no hesitation in returning, lovely site and great 4 day break.

Ian in the Leisure Centre was an absolute gent to deal with. From our first day to our last he was welcoming, friendly, engaging and helpful. Top marks to him. Thanks for helping us with the pool each day from the family who were staying 20 yards across from the leisure centre - lol!

Very comfortable lodge, fully equipped. The staff were very helpful when I had a request and dealt with it instantly. I would recommend the deluxe lodges to families and would certainly stay in one again.

We had a great time, so peaceful and quiet, staff were so helpful and friendly. We went for a birthday meal, Linda our server and the other two ladies whose names we didn't get were lovely, so polite, attentive and a credit to your team. We had a problem with the boiler when we arrived, but that was quickly resolved within the hour. Couldn't fault our experience at all what a great time we had. Thank you soooo much.

Huge thanks to Brian in the maintenance team who went above and beyond to fix tv issue, previous occupant did not log out. Reception staff for helping resolve the issue too, all went above and beyond to help. Also to the young female waitress in the bar/restaurant who offered a plaster when my little one hurt his finger. Really great experience on this holiday, would book again.
