Thurston Manor Reviews
Excellent lodge very spacious just like home.

The lodge very clean, comfortable, welcome pack of tea, coffee and milk a nice touch.

We had a great time and will definately be back.

Robert, Hunmanby Near Filey
Perfect loved it there ideal for families x
Windows and could do with net curtains for a bit more privacy
Made to feel welcome, very friendly and helpful, beautiful clean park.
Our lodge was located in the Glen next to the beautiful lake, this is a really nice location with great views and relaxed atmosphere. The lodge was immaculate and had all the facilities expected of this type of accommodation. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly and offered some good advice on what to see in the area. Locally, St Abbs and Dunbar are worth a visit, we had a very nice meal in Dunbar at the Creel restaurant. A very good site, highly recommended and will return again.
The park itself is big but well layed out with lots of seperate areas. The area we stayed in 'The Glen' is newly constructed and slightly away from the main site. Its lovely with its own private fishing lake and small play area for the children. This area has new caravans and lodges, some privately owned, some owned by the park, but all virtually new and in beautiful condition. The whole park, including the touring area, is well maintained and beautifully kept. The entertainment complex offers good choice for all ages, with a bar, amusements for children and a small indoor pool and fitness centre. Overall a great choice for families and couples alike.
Great first caravan holiday experience for our little girl and baby. Great park and location. Play park and swimming pool was very popular! Definitely come back again as still lots to explore.
Beautiful site, very clean caravan, lovely staff - would recommend this site to everyone.
Accommodation was lovely and the park well maintained. Very clean and furnishings of a high standard.
Thurston Manor is a beautifully kept and well laid out holiday park. The Glen in particular is absolutely stunning but still close enough to the facilities of the park. Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. The welcome pack was a great bonus. We will definitely be back.
Can't fault this holiday at all, site and accommodation were very clean, we enjoyed it so much that we have re-booked for the summer.
Fantastic accommodation in a lovely setting. Friendly staff, great facilities - 10/10.
We have stayed in a few other holiday parks (with other holiday companies) this by far was the best. The setting, the location, the cleanliness of the caravan was so impressive, as there is nothing worse than arriving ad having to clean the caravan because the bathroom and kitchen are so grimy. The caravan was nicely set out and spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a truly relaxing holiday, one of the best we have ever had in Great Britain.
