There are few holiday parks that can boast such spectacular surroundings and yet be so conveniently located. Thurston Manor is close to sandy beaches, quaint coastal towns, an abundance of historical attractions and the enchanting world class city of Edinburgh. The region is also home to world class golf courses and some of the best fishing in Scotland.

The pretty coastal town of Dunbar is nearby and North Berwick, Haddington and East Linton offer plenty of options for relaxing days out.

In contrast, the region’s rugged coastline offers no less than eight award-winning beaches. Enjoy dramatic sea views and magnificent nature reserves with coastal paths that lead all the way from East Lothian to the Scottish Borders.

Entertainment and events

We add new entertainment regularly so be sure to check back with us for updates. You can also find details of our planned entertainment on notice boards around the park. A small charge may be applicable to some events, please ask reception for details.

Vinnie, our cuddly park mascot, will also be making regular appearances throughout the year; he and his companion Violet are usually up to mischief so keep an eye out for him!
