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. 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.

Hidden gem

As we are quite new to the Club, we decided to try out our nearest Club site (30 minutes) for a weekend getaway. (May bank holiday) Tucked away on the outskirts of Bury, but within easy reach of the town, we weren't quite sure what to expect. When we were approaching off the main road (driving through a housing estate) our expectations were a little unsure, but , what a lovely surprise (once we had mastered the cobbled road!!) We arrived at 12, as requested and Once we had pitched up, we set off for a little walk around the area. Not sure how many times we read signs of historical interest , but they really gave an insight to the background of the place. Two pubs within a very short walk of the site and a little tea shop. We decided we wouldn't want to be on the pitches backing onto the pub though, as it does look as though the noise from the pub beer garden/play area could possibly disturb the otherwise peaceful getaway. But if you have a family, the pub is ideal. Lots going on and seems to be a very busy place, which was actually, lovely to watch. The East Lancs railway passes the site so we sat watching the steam trains (it was Thomas the tank weekend) go by. Also the next morning there was a fun run, again a lovely atmosphere . We have decided, it's definitely our weekend getaway site. Plenty of events are planned around the country park, so always something to interest us. Also, open all year round!, What's not to like !

Lovely site with great views

Had a lovely 2 nights here, great walks with a pub and cafe a stone's throw from the entrance. We are new to this club and have been very impressed by the sites we have been on so far. But is there a different level of membership that allows pitches to be reserved? Keep seeing lots of pitches with a cone on? Sometimes the site says full but lots of pitches with a cone on them with no obvious reason for them not being used so found this very odd?

Great stay at Burrs

It’s a nice site with great wardens. The steam train running past the site is also a nice touch. We booked this site so we could go see a concert in Manchester, 20 mins on the tram from Bury which was only £4.80 each for an all day travel card. Just outside the site there is a pub called the Brown cow, we popped in for a drink one night, it has a very bad damp smell in there that put us off having another drink. All in all we will be back, great location with plenty to do in the area.

Great Site

Lovely site with great facilities in a great location with some fantastic walks for the dog along the river. Only negatives is the obvious fondness of those in charge of the site for restrictive negative signs stating the obvious and the copious amounts of litter and dog crap strewn everywhere on the walk into Bury, (although clearly the latter point has nothing to do with the caravan site which was immaculate)

On the way home.

A good site on the way home, but thought it was expensive as it didn't offer anything different to other sites we had visited, maybe it's the proximity to Bury and Manchester.
