Fishing in the pond

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.

    Friendly welcome and well stocked shop at this site. I did not use the bar/club facilities so cannot comment on them.

    Disliked: 

    A wee bit disappointed in cleanliness of male toilets. Dirty toilet pan was in same state for 2 days! On departure I was impressed that chemical toilet cubicle had soap dispenser and paper towels above the sink. Unfortunately both dispensers were empty. I understand it's November and the site is not busy but these small things should not be overlooked.

    We enjoyed our time at Thurston Manor. Hard standing pitch was great quality with great drainage in heavy rain and fully serviced. The club house had a great choice of food with gluten free options at affordable prices, as well as good priced bar. Loved the area with lots of historical sites for families. Would recommend to friends and will use again when back in that part of Scotland.

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)
