THURSTON MANOR RECEIVES RUNNER-UP IN SCOTLAND’S BEST HOLIDAY PARK CATEGORY

THURSTON MANOR RECEIVES RUNNER-UP IN SCOTLAND’S BEST HOLIDAY PARK CATEGORY

AT INAUGURAL SCOTTISH OUTDOOR & LEISURE AWARDS

 

Verdant Leisure’s flagship Dunbar holiday park, Thurston Manor, was awarded runner-up in the Best Holiday Park category at the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards last Sunday evening at Glasgow’s Marriott Hotel.

The inaugural Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards were created to reward the very best from Scotland’s outdoor and leisure trade industry, voted for by customers. Ten finalists from each category were then shortlisted and all finalists reviewed by a team of independent judges.

“We were absolutely thrilled to win this accolade from the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards. It means a great deal to myself and the team at Thurston Manor, who work really hard to deliver exceptional services and experiences to our customers,” says George Hope, General Manager at Thurston Manor.

Nestling at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills in Scotland, near the stunning East Lothian coastline, Thurston Manor offers holidaymakers and holiday home owners the chance to share special holidays and short breaks with family and friends that they will remember for a lifetime.

Once a private estate visited by kings, it now offers modern stylish caravans and luxury lodges in a truly stunning country park setting with superior facilities including a swimming pool, gym, sauna and fishing lake.

“We are constantly striving to improve our accommodation and facilities which will benefit from a further £600,000 of investment next year, including a new pitch development and refurbishment of the complex.  With these improvements we aim to enhance Thurston Manor for the benefit of both our holiday home owners and guests” continues Hope.
