A lovely caravan, nice and roomy and well equipped
A few cushions wouldn't go amiss as with all caravans the bench settees are not the most comfortable to sit on for any length of time. other than that no other problems.
the best caravan we have stayed in.
William, Co Durham

Heraclio, Egham, Surrey
My family had a great holiday in Thurston Manor, the kids enjoyed a lot everything including the swimming pool. Every summer holidays, we stay in this great place in order to visit Scotland.
Loved the lodge, beautiful decor. We will be back for another holiday
The caravan was very comfortable and well laid out. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of space inside. Could do with a bit more play area around the caravans.
Very clean and tidy. Would benefit from an electric kettle and hair dryer. Comfy beds. Good size ensuite and main bathroom. Good size lodge with veranda.
Fantastic location, excellent welcome from very friendly staff. Extremely clean, would definitely visit again.
Fab time but not enough going on at night
beautiful chalet on main site but lacking few utensils and aids. exceptionally clean beautiful surroundings good reasonably priced cafÃ© and restaurant with decent bar price entertainment for children only. adult entertainment on Saturdays. plenty to do in local area
Great place for kids. Lovely caravan site.
Iwasvery satisfied all round
We really enjoyed staying at thurston manors.
We enjoyed a fantastic weekend break here at the end of March. We stayed in the Duluxe Lodge by the Loch in the Glen area. It was so peaceful down there and we had a great view. The lodge was impressive and was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was modern, clean and very spacious. The park itself was spotless and you can tell it well maintained and the staff take pride in the park. The entertainment complex had alot going on and I believe the family room for the kids disco etc. had just been renovated and was looking great. If you are a family, I would definitely recommend visiting East Links Family Park just 5mins drive from the site. My little girl is only One year old and she loved it. So much to do and see. You can get a 20% discount voucher if you ask at reception.
Good location to attend many attractions and close enough to the coast if the weather supports a trip to the beach...Good facilities on site, enjoyed a couple of good standard meals in the cafe...Needed information to get to a location which the Reception Staff researched and printed the details off the system to enable a successful visit...
Stayed in a deluxe lodge with two bedrooms. The beds in the twin were not fixed in place so could be easily moved to fit our travel cot.
The lodge itself was spotless and well maintained. The only slight downside was that the crockery and cutlery was very limited but all that meant was that we had to clean the dishes after every meal which wasn't a great problem.
The swimming pool changing rooms were quite tatty and could do with getting refreshed. Didn't use any of the other on site facilities other than the play park which was ideal for little ones.
Great weekend all round and would definitely go back to stay in one of the lodges.
really enjoyed this holiday it was great!!
