Why stay here ...

Previously an historic mill, Burrs Country Park Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Good Facilities and service

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
Stayed on a serviced pitch with a 2nd row view of the ELR railway, site is well laid out and feels spacious and open. Do not set up camp on pitches the other side of the hedge from the pub beer garden if you want a less raucous evening at weekends. I could not fault the facilities block and service from the staff. As this site is accessed through Bury town and onto Burrs Country Park you need your wits about you to navigate the junctions but the club directions work well and inform you the best way in, the cobbled access road through the country park ensures that all items not bolted down in your van get a good shuffle! Burrs Country Park itself is a bit of an enigma being good for walking / cycling etc but let down by the state of what could be an excellent Industrial Heritage location, poorly maintained waterways and overgrown structures give it a very neglected feel, no doubt the money ran out but not after some really random structures, sorry, works of art were installed. The sites platform to the steam railway is a great addition (although the access is via a path outside the site) and worth a nostalgic trip up and down the line with the Club discount when booking tickets.

Pleasant stay.....

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
Booked this site as it was near to where our daughter lived & enabled us to help with 'childcare' during the Easter holidays.... It is a very spacious site with plenty of grass areas around the hardstanding pitches..... The facilities are kept spotless by the hard working, friendly & accommodating wardens. Service with a smile. A special thank you to Sally & Peter. I'm sure they had plenty of complaints to deal with (& I'm sure the club will also hear about this to....) due to the loud, live event at the adjacent pub on Easter Sunday, which would have been a little more bearable if the 'artists' could actually sing!!!! The 'cobbles' on approach are an experience but is is an ideal location for a family stay but couldn't really recommend a stay of longer than 5 days..... For me, the East Lancs Railway was a bit of 'nostalgia' with the steam trains running although I can't be as enthusiastic about the views from the train as everywhere looked very tired & run down. The 2 for 1 offer for CAMC members reduced the overall cost & was happy to support this heritage railway. Would definitely stay again but not for so long.

Nice site

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
A bit of unseasonal nice weather and this was about our fifth choice as others were fully booked. Half empty the night we were there. Some noise from the back of the pub and you probably have to like dogs if you stay here, the surrounding park seemed to have an endless supply of yapping dogs regardless of how many (including our own) were on site. Otherwise a very spacious and tidy site and it was quiet at night. The steam railway runs behind it and there are the pub and a nice cafe ( only open Wednesday to Sunday I think) a few minutes walk away. Lots of little trails for ambling/ dog walking or cycling. I’m not sure what I’d do all day if I stayed more than a couple of nights but pleasant for a short stop ( especially if you have a sociable dog!).
