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.

We love this site and use it a lot for weekend breaks, as it’s only an hour from home. It’s great for our dog as it’s next to Burrs Country Park-so plenty of space to walk her. The Brown Cow pub next to the site has lovely food and wine is only £10 for any bottle. It’s about 30 mins walk to Bury market where you can buy the famous Bury black pudding and sausages. Our only grump is the standard pitches. Unless you book a fully serviced pitch you are lucky to have a pitch with gravel on it. We’ve noticed over the past 12 months the pitches gradually being depleted of gravel and over grown with clumps of grass and weeds. Especially the pitches to the left of the site close to the dog walking area. Our pitch was particularly bad this time as we arrived in the dark and didn’t notice how poor it was until the morning. It was just mud and puddles as it had rained during the night. I haven’t come across any other club sites where the pitches are so poorly maintained.
Response from the Club:
Many thanks for your review and we are so pleased that you love to stay at this site. Thank you also for your feedback regarding the gravel on pitches. We are pleased to advise we are working through topping up pitches for this season and work is due to start this week, weather dependent.
