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.

The site is only a short distance from home and convenient for a quick break. I feel it’s expensive for what you get and what’s available. Lots to do off site locally if it’s the outdoors you’re looking for and Bury town centre with its great market and steam railway is just down the road. The facilities block needs a refurb but was clean. The usual wardens that greet us have always been very friendly and helpful. But on this occasion we had a really bad experience with a male warden we’ve not seen previously. I went out early morning to pick up the two young grandchildren who were then staying with us. When I returned to site I completely missed a no entry sign (my fault completely) and was half way up the lane before I realised. It was early morning and absolutely no one about so I continued the remaining 50 metres or so to link up with the correct road. I had just got the kids unstrapped from their seats when the warden came up to me and demanded a word. To say he was rude and bad mannered was an understatement. He bawled me out at the front of our caravan and in front of my wife, grandchildren and other neighbouring guests. I apologised at least four times and held up my hands saying I wouldn’t let it happen again but he still continued his onslaught. The kids were scared by him and he basically tarnished the whole stay there. I’m not sure we’ll ever go back now. Several people nearby approached me about his attitude and I’m shocked that someone like this is allowed to be customer facing.
