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.

Quick stop over

Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site
Site very clean and well maintained and friendly staff, dog wash and allocated dog field a bonus although there is a beautiful country park to walk in next door, depending how far or energetic you are feeling it is very pleasant with a wheelchair/pram friendly path if needed, yes there are people who are ignorant and cut through your pitch but this isn't the sites fault and it happens on a lot of sites but it is annoying all the same, Burrs is well worth a visit.

Well maintained and great location

Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site
We’ve recently stayed for 9 nights over August Bank Holiday at this site which is local to us and we’ve had a fabulous time. The wardens are very welcoming and keep the site to a high standard. The site is wonderfully located in the heart of the Country Park and near to the market town of Ramsbottom and the larger town of Bury.

Excellent site.

Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site
We stayed here as we were travelling on the Flying Scotsman. Excellent access to the steam trains and our pitch backed onto the train-line so we had excellent views as the Flying Scotsman steamed past. The site in in a country park so there are walks/cycle routes as well as parts of the sculpture trail. Comments have been made about lack of activities, well it depends on what you want to do. We did our homework before booking and were very happy with the site. Comments have been made about members “cutting through pitches. This did not seem to be a problem to me and if someone walks on the grass between my hard standing and the next I smile politely and say hello. I don’t consider this “my bit” (many walked across the grass to get a photo of the flying Scotsman) Outside the control of the site but worth a mention:- The brown cow pub stopped serving food at 5.45 on a bank holiday in August (a tad early we felt)and the lamplight cafe did not serve coffee? Would we return - yes Couple in our 60s (but young at heart) Di n Mike

Lovely Location

Burrs Country Park Caravan Club Site
Had a lovely time here, perfect location, sadly the stay was spoilt by people cutting across pitches, although the staff do have notices up asking guests not to do this, we have been members for nearly 30 years, and feel the standard of the members has dropped, every club has rules, but people don’t seem to want to abide by them any longer, apart from this we did have a couple of wet days, which weren’t a problem, but don’t understand why the warden had to cut grass in these far from perfect conditions, what made it worse was the tractor didn’t have a collection box for the cuttings, consequently wet grass was everywhere, the facilities were a mess as were peoples awnings and outfits. The same patches of grass were mown , and on the return of the other set of wardens, they went over the same areas, although it was clear to see what had been done. apart from this we would return as it is a very lovely spot.
