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.

Convenient for us but there’s a Warden problem

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.

Great site, lots to see in the local area

Stayed @ Burrs during extreme weather. Hottest day of the year one day then a months rain the next! It's a lovely little site. I found the wardens friendly and knowledgeable and whilst the toilets aren't fancy they were clean and tidy and the showers fine which is good enough for me. Even if the weather isnt ideal there is lots to do in the local area. Indoors - Bury Market, Trafford Centre, National Football Museum, Museum of Science and Industry, The Sandcastle water park, Blackpool. Outdoors - walks in Burrs Park and in the surrounding hills Brown Cow is a little scruffy, its got a decent sized beer garden with kids play stuff but there was lots of litter and butts on the ground, too tempting for our puppy!

Our recent visit

Visited the site recently. Toilet block looking clean and tidy but desperately needs refurbishment.There are rusty screws holding the boards to the wall and shower heads not working correctly. There are no hot and cold badges on the taps, and hand dryers fitted over a radiator is asking for trouble. The radiators are rusty and look terrible. The wardens on this site are not dog friendly. Responsible dog owners know the rules and do not need reminding at every visit!

Terrible wardens

Been here a few times never had a problem till I came this time on checking in I was confronted with rules and regulations with the bad attitude that came with it lots of orders on signs around the site must not tell anybody the code for the toilet like there’s any one that does not know it.. Still a lovely site just the wardens on arrival kemp my distance from them while here I did read up on the site on trip advisor and does not look like I’m the only one.
