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.

Many parks set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per site, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 sites.
However, where the campsite or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple sites or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be located together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click 'Make another booking like this' at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

There are National Rail stations at nearby Dunbar and at Berwick.

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...
