Why stay here ...

Previously an historic mill, Burrs Country Park 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 - making caravanning in Lancashire a great choice for the discerning holidaymaker. The Bury Tramlink station is just a 25 minute walk or short bus journey away.

Burrs Country Park 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. Travelling north and east of Bury, you will find picturesque countryside with numerous small towns and villages, with industrial heritage to explore.

Burrs Country Park Railway Station has now opened and is the East Lancashire Railway's newest station, just a 5 minute stroll from our site. Find out more about the exclusive member offer. To take advantage of any special member benefits on offer, your signed membership card must be presented.

COVID-19 staycation

After reading some negative reviews on TripAdvisor I was unsure if I had booked the right place for my family. But after arrival that had disappeared. The grounds are well kept. Clean and well maintained facilities. Yes, a policy of 2 in, at the toilet and shower block. The downside was that the toddler room was not in use, due to COVID. Friendly wardens. The park was peaceful and quiet. I’m guessing due to the time of the year. The caravan park is surrounded by the beautiful Burrs Country Park. A great play ground just a walk away. Enough to keep the littles happy. We will be definitely be returning next year.

Great staff. Unruly campers.

This is a beautiful site, amazing wardens who are so friendly and helpful. They have a hell of a job on their hands during COVID. People are clearly holidaying with people outside of their household in separate caravans. As we’ve been placed in Tier 3 restrictions this is not allowed. Too many people using the toilet block when only 2 are allowed. Do these lovely people (the wardens) a break and conform to the few things we’ve been asked to do. I would’ve given 5 stars for everything but was disappointed people are clearly not following guidelines.

What a wonderful Weekend Away

This was our first visit to Burrs and we will be returning again. The site was lovely and well kept and in a lovely location. We visit the local pub for a meal which was ok, and took the opportunity to go on the steam train that runs from the site to visit some of the local area which was great fun (note you have to book 24 hours in advance of travelling due to the CoVid restrictions). We took a walk around the park which was busy especially in the "damp conditions" we had for our weekend. The wardens were great and very helpful and we were able to change our pitch requirements when we arrived. I would highly recommend it and hope to visit again next year.

Quietest visit to Burrs!

We arrived for 12 as usually do when visiting Burrs without thinking admission times may have changed due to the Covid situation so had to park up along Woodhill Road as the whole of Burrs Country Park was heaving being a Sunday. Not a problem, we had a walk with the dog and then made our way onto site. We were welcomed by a friendly, approachable warden who explained everything about current covid safety on site. She was a delight and under present circumstances with such strict rules to adhere to, didn't let that get in the way of a bit of humour and time to chat. We have visited Burrs many times now, have always liked the layout, the pitch sizes are great and facilities looked after diligently. The site was very quiet, time of year maybe or Covid.......perfect for those of us who want / need a change of scenery without taking unnecessary risks to ourselves or others. We will be back ( if we are spared) next season.

Feedback

The site was lovely and clean. Very friendly and warm staff. During this period of Covid 19, whilst I fully appreciate the rules of social distancing and that we should use our own toilet and showers facilities on board, I did feel 2 toilets and 2 showers on this site was sometimes a little tricky. Perhaps a new shower, toilet and wash station would be very gratefully received on this site.
