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. Those who enjoy outdoor pursuits will not be disappointed - there are loads of opportunities for fun activities adjacent to the site, from climbing, abseiling and canoeing to a purpose built training pool, slalom courses on the river and lots of interesting walking trails. Travelling north and east of Bury, you will find picturesque countryside with numerous small towns and villages, with industrial heritage to explore.

First weekend in Feb 2017

Lovely site extremely clean and well maintained pitch sizes are quite large and spacious and not muddy at all very friendly and helpful staff. Steam train was an added bonus to the weekend Only negatives were the rain so dog walking was a bit wet and muddy (not the sites fault at all) and the flu virus which stopped us going out (again not the fault of the site) Will definitely book later in the year to go again as looking forward to walking around local area and trying the pub just off the site.

Shining example

Great site well kept clean and tidy. Great location for families and dogs with the country park only a stone throw away. Nice pub at the entrance. Having experienced very unfriendly male warden on this site before it was an absolute pleasure to be greeted by the winter wardens who are doing a fantastic job - from the physical jobs to the social side. They are a shining example of what we expect as wardens - thank you

East Lancashire Railway

Great site, there is now a permanent stop for the East Lancashire Railway at the site. The track runs right by the site - perfect for enthusiasts. The steam train is a wonderful experience - transporting you back to the 50's! Enjoy a cuppa in the 'buffet car' served by very presentable and knowledgeable (by the way, they - conductors, drivers and staff - are all volunteers). Not only are the trains of the era but the stations and staff have all embraced the theme with period uniforms and even piles of 'travel trunks' neatly piled on the various platforms along the way. Just hop on and off at Summerseat, Ramsbottom, and not to mention the end of the line at Rawtenstall where you can enjoy a craft beer or tea and cake at the traditional 'Waiting Room'... I returned on an early 60's diesel. You can also grab a 'Special Burrs Fare' return to Bury for only £5 to visit the Bury Market (excellent if you want some fresh meat for a barbeque!) There is a nice dog friendly tavern just outside the gates to the caravan site serving 'home cooked' meals which seems very popular with locals too.
