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.

Noisy site by the Brown Cow pub.

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
This site has horrendous noise from the Brown Cow pub. Please avoid any pitches nearby. The wardens were not interested in any complaints at all.

Great Location - Ruined by the weather.

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
The Positives for me. The location, it's been great to access the North West from this location. The site Monday to Friday is pretty quiet. The steam trains going by are nice. The Negatives. The grass cutting seams to never end, even on sunday there was hours and hours of noise and its still not been completed haha. I know it needs to be done but seams to take forever ? The service point in the "serviced Pitches" area have no bins. You pay a premium for a pitch like this and you have to walk a long way to empty the bins. The Wind, Now i know it's the UK, but the wind on the site seams to be really bad. Even further down the site. I was really concerend about the awning and caravan in general. The access road is a little aincent and I dont think it did much good to the caravan. I also don't know why the first access barrier is down during normal hours? For people like me that travels alone its a bit of a faff every time i go out to come back in and swipe the card on the LHS. The second is also a bit close to swipe the card while in the car. I'll be back as its a great access for the NW. But the annoying things from my experiance ruin what would be a greater site.

Another great stay at Burrs Country Park

Burrs Country Park Club Campsite
An excellent site, spacious pitches and not too tightly packed. Good kicking off spot for visiting north Manchester area, and also easy to get into the centre of Manchester on the tram. Great to see the steam trains on the East Lancashire Railway. The country park has some lovely walks and an excellent pub and cafe. Even though the site was more or less full it was nice and peaceful, with birdsong, and an owl hooting at night.

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.
