Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just back from a lovely weekend break in our tourer. Warden Jane was so friendly & welcoming, despite our last minute booking & arriving slightly earlier than planned, great welcome information about the site & local area. Site itself is a small, quiet well kept site which felt very friendly, also has access straight onto a beautiful long sandy stretch of beach. A number of touring pitches have brilliant views out onto the beach & sea. All facilities are kept immaculate, showers & toilets were always clean. No push button showers either which was lovely. We were lucky with the weather & enjoyed lovely walks along part of the John Muir way & watched the sunrise over the sea. 10/10 for us all, perfect relaxing weekend, already looking to book again soon.

I would not visit again the campsite managers need yo ho back to school to learn about manners as they haven't got any . A bsolutely Disgraceful attitude. I rang up to ask about site fees and if there was any statics for sale and the reply was why did I want to know that and said it was none of my business and they couldn't disclose that information . I only asked a question and would have liked a simple answer . I can only put it down to me being English maybe they didn't like me .my husband and me were regular visitors there NOT ANY MORE . Thanks for nothing glad I just didn't turn up and had to make a wasted journey

Just back (August '22) from an overnight stay at this lovely campsite. Only one night in the tent but what a lovely place! Cannot fault it. Friendly and helpful wardens, immaculate facilities and two minutes from the beach...a proper beach holiday...what a joy....we will be back but not in our tent as we are getting on a bit for tenting. Hopefully next year we will have our motorhome and we will be back.

Been coming to Thorntonloch for 3 years now with our tourer caravan. It’s beaches are beautiful and the pitches with a sea view are something else with water hook up and electric and most have room for an awning. They have a wash area and shower block which are extremely clean and well and maintained. There’s a wee kids room with games and all kinds of toys and bikes for them to play with free of charge and this also has an outside play area with sand and water which the kids love especially on a hot day. It gives them a change from the beach. The staff are very friendly people and approachable. All the people who own the statics are very nice and always say hello. We cant wait for our next visit in August.

This was our first holiday in our Campervan. The site was just what we liked. Seaviews, beautiful beach , no crowds , no WiFi. The washing/ toilet areas were immaculate. We were met by Jayne who runs the site with her husband. She was so friendly and helpful, nothing was a bother. We will definitely be back!!!!

We visited the site for a weeks stay in mid August in our trailer tent. The site is lovely and quite with a great family friendly atmosphere with direct access to a massive beach. The facilities were extremely clean and everything we needed. The site was very safe the kids loved riding around on their bikes and made some good friends too. The wardens and all the owners were super friendly and went out of their way to make our stay the best. Great location with easy access to Beriwck and Edinburgh. Thanks you we can't wait to come back next year 😊

We booked a tent pitch as part of a min bike packing trip around East Lothian. The location is perfect just a couple of miles south along the coast from Dunbar and only 2 minutes off the A1. When we arrived rather wet from hours of Scottish summer rain, the site warden was super helpful in getting our pitch sorted, and with excellent advice on food options. We plumped for takeaway Indian from Dunbar which we ate on the beach. The beach is right on the doorstep of the site and it's a lovely walk along it, beautiful sand. The site has a really clean and tidy shower and toilet block which offers free hot showers. It also amazingly had full wash facilities with a tumble dryer which came in very handy for sorting some soggy clothing. There is a tiny shop with a few essentials and sweet things. Overall it's a great location with really friendly folks and some great facilities.

This is a hidden gem. Beautiful campsite with clean facilities and a stones throw from the most amazing beach. It goes on for miles and never feels busy or over crowded. The staff are so friendly and it was just a fantastic place to stay. Highly recommend.
