The Activity Centre has lots of activities and is great for a birthday party for children and adults of all ages. Set in a beautiful country park which itself is worth the visit, the activity centre caters fro all tastes. The Country park is free and the Brown Cow is ideal for lunch or tea and will serve tea and... More

I love Burrs with it being a local spot it's perfect for cycling, walking and taking the dog. Lots of areas to wander through, see the east lancs train pass by, activities for schools and often events on in the main field. Picnic benches are about, though not as many as once was. The walk from Burrs past the weir... More

I have known the Burrs Country Park since I was born and raised just down the road. My husband and I often visit for a walk, spotting kingfishers and to enjoy the scenery. My only complaint is that, unlike other country parks, there are no toilet facilities whatsoever. Even when the Activity Centre itself is open, you are not allowed... More

This is our second stay at Burrs country park! Lovely park, lots of walks and along side the caravan park runs the East Lancs Railway, great for steam train enthusiasts. There are children's activities, I presume more so in the summer but the kids were canoeing. The Brown cow pub at the entrance is a bonus for the dark evenings!... More

Went for lunch with a friend on Friday 23 August 2013. I had the 'luxury steak and kidney pudding' - it was anything but luxury. It was virtually all suet and no meat. It was awful. My friend had 'traditional fish and chips'. It was terrible. The fish (Cod?) was grey and mushy, inside under cooked batter. We didn't eat... More

We took our caravan to Burrs Country Park C/C site. We thought it was lovely and can't believe we are only just over an hr away and yet not visited before. It is right along the side of the East Lancs railway line. Steam trains run from Bury station, and on some trips you can book a meal (lunch or... More

Visited Burrs Activity Centre as part of a team building day in a group of 10. Well organised morning activities including archery and a number of problem solving activities within the centre. Wasn't the best weather but well organised by Jason (I think) and encouraged all the team to participate. Very enjoyable and a shame we only had a morning... More

Great location with ancient ruins, Castlemeads near by. The Burrs mill complex is preserved with tall chimney. Canal and flowing river near by The Paths are great for long walks. Lot of activities for children but to be booked in advance. Brown Cow, Very old pub which is a converted farm house. Sculpture trail is good. Romantic for couples and... More
