Previously an historic mill, Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site has much to offer the whole family - from relaxing river and countryside walks to contemporary art, and with the nostalgic East Lancashire Steam Railway passing by. The caravan site also gives you easy access to the beautiful country park situated just north of Bury town centre, and is handy for trips into Manchester using the direct tramlink. The city of Manchester, just half an hour away by Tramlink, is a perfect base for big football matches, concerts and events, not to mention the extensive retail therapy options that Manchester has to offer. The Bury Tramlink station is just a 25 minute walk or short bus journey away.

Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site is based around the River Irwell and the remains of two cotton mills - Higher Woodhill Mill and Burrs Mill. Extensive development of the mill has left interesting archaeological remains and water courses in the area. Those who enjoy outdoor pursuits will not be disappointed - there are loads of opportunities for fun activities adjacent to the site, from climbing, abseiling and canoeing to a purpose built training pool, slalom courses on the river and lots of interesting walking trails. Travelling north and east of Bury, you will find picturesque countryside with numerous small towns and villages, with industrial heritage to explore.

Good start to caravaning for us.

4 out of 5

Very friendly helpful staff and a very well kept site. The East Lancashire railway running alongside was a bonus. We will be returning at some time in the future and we have recommended the site to friends.

Excellent start to caravanning

5 out of 5

Assistant Wardens were really helpful and informative. Site was very peaceful and in a lovely location near the East Lancashire steam railway which added an extra feel of being in the countryside. Would wholly recommend this site and was a good start to my new caravanning hobby.

Fabulous pitches

5 out of 5

Wardens helpful, excellent hard pitches throughout with 2 lanes all going in the same direction to easily get around the sites. Services pitches were great. Good location and Bury was surprisingly a nice town. Good base for Manchester
