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.

Beware of the 'younger' wardens.

Booked three nights for the Caravan & Motorhome show. Allocated pitch 27, returned to site on third night and found others on our pitch. They would not move as they had been told by the 'younger' wardens that we would be leaving the next day. "Younger' lady warden threw the rule book at us, saying we should have left something on the pitch. There was no way she was ever going to see our point of view, despite the fact that we were in possession of the gate pass for pitch 27. We were told to find another pitch. Both the 'younger' wardens were the total opposite to the 'older' site wardens who were extremely helpful and courteous. Chalk and cheese.

A regular site for us

Second time this year as its handy for a short break and the location is the best with a decent pub outside the gate and great walks inBurrs Country Park. However I did wonder why the hosepipe has disappeared from the Motorhome service point. . So no hosepipes at all and this is the only site that we visit where this has happened. Only a small point but it does make it difficult and can’t be very expensive to replace It.

Standards are dropping

Its about 3 years since we stayed at Burrs and oh my goodness standards have dropped!! This is no longer Club standard. The ladies toilets - there is a hand dryer above the radiator (possible design fault) the radiator is rusty and not just a little!! in one of the cubicles the hairdryer has been taped up!! A small thing in between cubicles dirt is starting to grow on the floor and between wash basins etc - deep clean required. My husband advised there were broken tiles in the gents. The older pitches are showing signs of wear, compared to the newer pitches. Price £142.00 5 nights this is too much for the standards. I will be taking this further. The club have wasted the members money on re-branding, when they should be looking at rusty radiators etc. The site is a great location and the wardens were nice. But the club must keep up the standards. We had already booked to return in June for an event, when we hope these problems have been rectified.

New year at Burrs.

We stopped at Burrs for four nights over the new year period, good friendly and helpfull staff who keep the site looking clean and tidy. A good pub just outside the barriers which serves good food and is dog friendly. Only critisism is that the ammenities block is looking a little tyred and could do with a face lift, and why when the site is allmost full bis some of the ammenities locked off. But on the whole a pleasant and relaxing site in a convenient area. We have been to Burrs several times and will be returning.
