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.

Excellent again

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
Another great stay at Burrs. Facilities were clean and well looked after as always. Site clean and well laid out. Plenty of space between pitches and lots of green space. Great place to watch and catch the steam trains on the East Lancs Railway.

Helpful and Friendly staff

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
The Site manager, Ellie. was very helpful when I had to call as we had a problem with our outfit before setting off. She called me back and said that she was able to amend our booking (for a charge - fair enough it was on the day) so we didn't have to shorten our stay. When we arrived on Thursday it was quiet. There were lots of pitches to choose from. Come Friday there was a huge influx of motorhomes with a few caravans and the site became full for the weekend. However it still remained quiet and peaceful. We very much like that the site layout isn't in rows. There are curves and areas off the main ring. Although you travel through an urban area to get there the site is on the edge of the countryside. There are walks from the site along the river and further afield. You can also walk into Bury to visit the famous market. Watching the steam and diesel locomotives with their carriages chug by brought back chikdhood memories. Have to have a ride on the train when we come back. The friendly, helpful team are one of the reasons to return to the site.

Worth the Visit

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
Even though we live less than 10 miles from the site, we've stayed here on several occasions: mainly as a try-out for a new campervan/motorhome. Having stayed here in October 2021 and January 2024, we enjoyed our latest visit and have decided we'll be using it more often and it is well located for us to explore the local area. This time, with our new motorhome, we decided on a 2-night stay and even with several years experience behind us, we still had a few teething problems but easily sorted. Although we stayed our of season, we found the peace and quiet great but with the ELR on the doorstep, we'd recommend using this to explore the area when it reopens. For us, as we've two dogs, we enjoy the walking, and ventured into Bury via a riverside walk. Additionally, on our leaving date, we had a breakfast at the café just outside the site and would heartily recommend that too All in all, a good break and planning a return soon

Shame about the weather

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
This is a spacious and well maintained site with good access to local walks and cycle rides as well as plenty of scope if you are prepared travel a bit further. Unfortunately our stay was cut short because of awful weather. However, we will be back at some point in the future to pick up where we left off.

Cold and frosty but a warm welcome!

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
This is our third visit this year, it has so much to offer… a pub, cafe and parkland on its doorstep, all of which are dog friendly. There’s also a lovely garden centre within a 10 min drive. The site staff are friendly too. We will be back!
