Why stay here ...

Previously an historic mill, Burrs Country Park Caravan 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 Caravan 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.

GREAT SITE

We booked for two nights and decided to stay for three, then we came back a couple of weeks later, that's how much we enjoyed it! The site was spotless with large level pitches and the staff were brilliant and very helpful. A day out in Manchester was a doddle, taxi into Bury then a tram into the middle of Manchester. Bury market is a great place to visit, a twenty five minute walk or four quid each way in a taxi if you're not up for the walk. The Brown Cow just at the entrance to the site was a nice friendly pub with a happy hour a couple of days a week and the food was great and cheap enough too. Would definately recommend Burr's Country Park to anyone.

Brilliant Site

Once again we had a very enjoyable stay at Burrs thanks to the resident wardens. They made our stay that much better. Pitches are an excellent size and well kept. Could do with more service pitches.  The few there are are impossible to get as always booked well in advance. Loved watching the steam trains pass by. Do need a car though to get around as bus service is limited. Beware the speed cameras outside Tescos!  And, yes, those cobbles and potholes are an interesting experience getting to and leaving the site.
