General

  • At the foot of the Lammermuir Hills on the East Lothian coastline

Dreaming of rolling hills and golden beaches, with the fringe benefits of close proximity to Edinburgh? Then feast your eyes on award-winning Thurston Manor, a former country estate near Dunbar in East Lothian.

You'll find Thurston Manor at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills and near the famous East Lothian coastline. However, the temptations are not just limited to the dramatic backdrop of the Lammermuir Hills. There’s the lure of fly fishing on the site’s beautiful freshwater lake, or of relaxing in the heated pool, sauna and steam room, plus a well-equipped fitness centre and wonderful wildlife and walks in the surrounding woods.

Thurston Manor has a shop, lounge bar and restaurant with free wi-fi and Sky and BT Sports and there is a great outdoor children’s play area. There is also entertainment during peak season.

    Site was clean and quiet. Easy access to amenities. The welcome pack we received was great and very useful which highlighted walking routes, amenities. We only travelled this time with our youngest child and is one we will come back to with our older children. Pitch level was perfect and staff was very friendly. The on site shop was excellent with everything you need and at good prices

    Location, easy access from the A1. The shop was very handy. The bar and swimming pool was a bonus. The site was well maintained.

    Disliked: 

    Although the showers had lovely hot water, access to water was timed. If you required extra time, press the button for more water, and then couldn't switch the water off, so there was wastage. The taps in the toilet block, again a press down for water, which came out so fiercely!

Directions


From the south

From the north
Travelling south on the A1 from Edinburgh carry on past two roundabouts at Dunbar and turn right across the dual carriageway at signs for Innerwick and Thurston Manor. Follow this road for half a mile and Thurston Manor Leisure Park is on your right.

Public transport
There are National Rail stations at nearby Dunbar and at Berwick. Perryman's bus service number 253 operates a seven-day service from Edinburgh to Berwick upon Tweed which stops at Innerwick providing convenient public transport option for local attractions and shopping at Dunbar, Coldingham, Eyemouth and St Abbs also.

Local attractions

You won’t find yourselves thirsting for action at Thurston Manor; there are lots of inspiring places to visit in East Lothian, Berwickshire and beyond.

Peer at the puffins and gawk at the gannets at the Scottish Seabird Centre - you can zoom in on the nesting colonies on the islands (including Bass Rock, home to a gobsmacking 150,000 gannets) using the Centre’s interactive live cameras, or zoom off on a boat trip to see them in the flesh/feathers, along with grey seals and dolphins if you’re lucky.

For more fresh air fun, there are clifftop walks, castle ruins, picnicking and pony trekking across the grassland, woods and salt marshes at John Muir Country Park in nearby Dunbar. Or you could go for a clamber around Tantallon Castle, a majestic fourteenth century stronghold in a photogenic location atop the cliffs overlooking the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock. Not to mention the magnificent golf courses, fishing, horse riding, yachting and water sports in the surrounding area.

Whisky lovers will definitely want to make a pilgrimage to the nearby Glenkinchie Distillery, which has an excellent visitor centre and guided tours as well as tastings (and a discount in the shop is included in the very reasonable entrance fee).

Last but not least, the brilliant and bonny city of Edinburgh is only 25 miles away...

Must see

  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Barracks & Main Guard (22.1 miles)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Museum and Art Gallery (22.1 miles)
