Thurston Manor Reviews

Our Customer Testimonials

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

Visited Thurston Manor for the first time (with our Touring Caravan) and was really impressed by the site and facilities. The site is well designed and everything is where it should be. It’s a clean and well maintained site. The park, pool, bar and shop are excellent. Major plus to call out is the entertainment team, great ideas, ton of fun and high effort from the team to make sure the kids (and the parents) are having a great time. Well done ! Kudos to the grounds team also who do a great job maintaining the site. We’ll definitely be back.

We have visited twice now in our motorhome. The pitch is well laid out with great clean facilities. The children's play park is clean and all in working order. The leisure facilities are clean and of a good standard. The staff in the restaurant go over and above to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. All in all a brilliant place to visit in your motorhome for a short break with kids! Also the shop on site has a huge range of stock. Including a gluten free section! Highly recommended.

The caravan park was lovely very clean grounds and the caravan itself self was spotless and very spacious. The entertainment complex is great. I was very surprised, it was massive each room was huge.

Mr Giulianotti

Thurston Manor is the perfect place to have a break, reception staff are first class.

Mr Taylor

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.

Mrs Wilson

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...

Mrs Brown

...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.

Mrs Brown

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!

Mr Callaghan

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.

Mrs White

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.

Mrs Wright

Just had a great stay at Thurston Manor. Been before in spring/summer but first time going in Oct! It's a lovely site with very helpful staff and always friendly.

Great playpark and handy shop. Loads to do in the surrounding area. We really enjoyed our break and would definitely return.

Although OAPs we found our stay very pleasant and quiet and not inhibited by any restrictions caused by the virus. Accommodation comfortable, clean, with sufficient kitchen equipment. Also note that plenty of interested places to visit close at hand.

Services were fantastic. Thurston Manor made your holiday amazing and even a got a visit from on-site manager asking if there was anything else they could do to give you a great holiday. Next time I would like a caravan with small veranda as I have a dog but over all a fantastic time during Covid-19.

Ms Simpson

We ran out of gas and the reception was closed we went into the shop and the problem was rectified very quickly. Excellent service, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Miss Craig

All the staff on the park that we met were friendly and welcoming even in these difficult times.

Mr Sayles

Excellent break, lodge exceeded our expectations. The staff are knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Mrs Thomson

Lodge 246 on the Main Site was fantastic. The lounge area had two decent sized sofas which were comfortable and along with the dining area and kitchen, the "living area" of the lodge was a lot larger than I had anticipated. The kitchen had everything you could want for a self-catering break. The beds in the twin rooms were very comfortable and the double room, with it's walk-through wardrobe and en-suite shower room was perfect. We were able to use the swimming pool each morning which was an added bonus as, due to the COVID issues, we were unsure how the booking system would work, but Karen sorted it all out for us.

Mrs Robertson

Recently stayed at Thurston Manor for a much needed family break, during our stay the park was very quiet which afforded us the relaxing time we were seeking. Very good COVID measures in place especially at pool. The staff at the park were excellent, very friendly and helpful. We travelled with our autistic daughter and were especially impressed that all the staff seemed to have quite an understanding of her needs and offered what they could in the way of assistance to us. I have no hesitation in recommending park and returning again.

Mrs Hendren

We had a great mid week break at Thurston Manor. We stayed in a lodge which was outstanding! All staff were very friendly and helpful. I have recommended Verdant Leisure parks to other people. We will be back .

We booked the caravan to visit nearby family and required dog friendly accommodation. The caravan was basic, but clean.

Mrs Davies

Excellent site. Caravan was very clean. Will definitely book another holiday.

Mrs Walker

Have visited Thurston Manor several times in the past but this was first time we have taken a short break in December. Lodge was very well equipped and cosy and staff very friendly and professional. Thurston Manor is situated in an ideal location for visiting other parts of East Lothian, the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. Only stayed for 5 days but dined in restaurant on two occasions and were very pleased with the meals provided. Will definitely return in the future as we thoroughly enjoyed our break. Keep up the good work.

Mr Skinner

We have been staying at Pease Bay and Thurston Manor since 2006. We always get a nice clean caravan and the staff are always friendly and happy to help. We have stayed at caravan parks all over Britain but none of them can match the service, price and standards that Verdant Leisure provides.

Mr Williams

This is most likely the best park staff cannot do enough for you they are extremely polite and lovely that's what makes Thurston Manor the best park. Additionally the food is excellent, we wouldn't go else where tried them but you guys cannot be beaten.

Mr Taylor

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.

Mr Pateson

Absolute fantastic weekend at Thurston Manor.

Mrs Thomson

Having visited Thurston Manor with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren aged 2 and 5, we found the accommodation quite spacious and clean. Chris and Stacey did an excellent job of entertaining the children and Stacey was so good with encouraging them to join in without pushing them into anything. Our granddaughter was terrified of characters - but by the end of our week, she just loved "Vinnie" and couldn't wait to give him cuddles.

Mrs Ritchie

Had a lovely stay all staff can not do enough for you from reception to bar staff very friendly and go the extra mile to ensure you have a great time. Thank you Thurston Team.

Mr Taylor

We stayed in the 'doggy' lodge. The small but amazing touches in this lodge for dogs was outstanding and never before experienced, from beds to toys and even food, everything needed for our fur babies...the only downside is our dogs loved the dog beds so much I'm going to need to source them!

We stayed in a lodge down in the Glen. It was modern, had everything we needed and was a pleasure to stay in. It had a dishwasher, washing machine, iron, 2 bathrooms etc. We didn't see much of the site, although we did get takeaway food from the restaurant which was tasty. The shop was well stocked, and the reception staff were lovely.

All good.

Unfortunately there was a mix up with our booking a few days prior to our holiday, but to cut a long story short a very helpful lovely lady from Verdant helped us to enjoy our holiday by arranging for us to have a lodge in Thurston Manor to which we appreciated everything she did for us that day to make our holiday worth while.

This is the third time we have visited the park and stayed in a static caravan. I was a little disappointed that on this occasion we were not in the Glen. However, the caravan we had was excellent.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our 10yrs at Thurston Manor. We didn't come for the social life, but that became one of the enjoyable factors about the park, along with the beauty of combined country and coastal aspects. Beautiful coastal villages, towns and cities all within easy reach too. Something for everyone, walking, fishing, golf...Thurston Manor is a good place to be!

From the moment we checked in for our stay with our campervan everyone was friendly and helpful. Bar staff were welcoming and kept glasses and tables clear at all times.  Facilities for tourers were good with plenty of fresh water points and clean warm toilet/shower facilities with lots of hot water. Enjoyed the entertainment and could see there was something for everyone. The park itself had enough things to keep us busy and some lovely walks for our dogs. We will be back! Thanks everyone.

Stayed down the glen,  lovely and peaceful.

Mr Watt

One of the best parks we have visited hence why we have visited 10+ times in the last year with our new Motorhome. Nice big kids park but could maybe add more too it for the younger kids. Staff always accommodate us and give us our requested pitch so we can watch our children play in the park. 10/10.

Paul McGinty

A tranquil, relaxing and pleasurable place to stay. We will definitely return. The accommodation was exceptional. Clean, modern and very comfortable. We went in February, yet the lodge was warm and cosy, despite the minus degrees outside. A great position too, close to Edinburgh and North Berwick. Fully functioning kitchen with a lovely welcome pack. Excellent.
