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.

Flying Scotsman again

5 out of 5

Yet another visit to enjoy the East Lancs Railway. Staff extremely friendly and updated us on proposed site extension.  Facilities immaculate as usual. We managed to arrive early enough for a pitch with a fantastic line side view of the railway. Bury market always worth a visit, just a mile away partly by riverside footpath. Several walks around including footpath to Summerseat and dog friendly garden Centre.  Good pub within metres, also dog friendly.  We shall be back next year.

Great Place

5 out of 5

Ignoring the approach which does shake, rattle and roll everything, this is a great little site. Went to Blackpool to see the lights!!! Went to Bury Market, worth looking at, and the Flying Scotsman whistled by. Level pitches with plenty of space, good wardens and a pub that you fall into as you walk out the gate. What's not to like?

More first timers

5 out of 5

As in the title, first timers at Burrs. Agree with other reviewers all well in the Park! Friendly wardens, clean facilities and tidy park. The entrance is ideal for cocktail drinkers, shaken not stirred!! But then it's all part of the area and it's former use. Great, will be back as only just over a hour from home.
