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.

City break in a van

Visited this site for a 2 night stay and enjoyed the experience. The site is tucked away down a quiet lane but is close to everything you would ever need. On the first night we popped out to a local chippy for our dinner. We chose the direct footpath through the woods which was very wet but the shortest route and then walked back through the houses. Both ways were easy to find and took no more than 12 minutes from door to door. We also took a bus into town for the famed Bury market. The bus seemed expensive to me but then again I don’t use buses very often. We decided to get a Uber taxi back to the site from town and then wished we hadn’t bothered with the bus as the taxi was only £4.55 each way and dropped us off at the site entrance instead of a 10 minute walk away. Overall a great little site tucked away on the edge of town that is very open with few trees but also very secure. The wardens were really welcoming and friendly. Would definitely visit again.

A homely site

Didn't find the site easy to find due to heavy rain, dark skies, and traffic as we went through Bury itself though I made it make it without getting lost. On arrival, you have to stop, contact the wardens on the intercom, drive through the first barrier and then stop again to book in. I found the wardens always friendly and helpful - so much more pleasing to arrive in torrential rain and be greeted by friendliness and helpfulness. The weather meant that quite a few of the older hard standing pitches had puddles. I pitched up on the outer ring of pitches - great view of the railway but the wifi was pitiful (should be silver). Toilet block is being renovated - should be finished in a week or so. Plenty of walks from the site but given it rains frequently (take good waterproofs), you and the dog will probably come back muddied. Excellent motorhome service point. Site layout good. You can walk into Bury off road but take a good map or instructions. There is a good shopping centre, supermarkets, and the famous Bury Market. If going on the railway, the line into Bury and to Heywood is industrial; the line up to Rawtenstall is much more attractive. Despite heavy showers and strong winds rocking the van, I thoroughly enjoyed the bracing weather and my stay.

Excellent in all areas

Our first visit in October/November was brilliant. We were met by lovely site staff who were very helpful. We found loads of local information and great recommendations from them. The facilities were spotless and warm (it was quite cold when we visited). The site is well laid out and the serviced pitch was excellent. We found the local pub (just outside the site) was good and an ideal place to meet other visitors. In the warmer weather there is ample room at each pitch to sit outside. Each pitch was gravel and ours was level, a few outfits needed levelling blocks. For those less mobile you could choose a pitch nearer to the toilets/laundry. There were plenty of water chemical points and recycling areas that were cleaned every morning. Highly recommended site which we will visit often there’s plenty of places to visit and a good base for visiting Bury Market and Manchester. We were sceptical seeing a poor review but quite honestly it couldn’t be more wrong.

Made a second visit to this site and really enjoyed the trip. Although we only live 30 minutes drive away the trip was very worthwhile. The site is well placed for local walks and the scenery is great. It is an excellent location for dog owners with loads of walks and the Brown Cow pub next to the site is possibly the most dog friendly we have visited. The facilities on site are clean and well maintained. We received a friendly welcome from the wardens. We will most certainly make a return visit.

First visit.

As newby campers, we were a bit concerned with the negative reviews about this site but having spent 3 nights there recently, we certainly have no complaints. We found the site and facilities very clean and well looked after and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is very good but a little more info on the bus services would be helpful although taxis into Bury are inexpensive. We enjoyed our stay and will certainly revisit.
