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.

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

Only ten mins drive from us, free parking, a 300 hundred yr old pub, peaceful walks, wildlife galore and a lot going on for families and kids it seems with a climbing and activity centre, great place to spend a few hours

Great place to take the kids for a walk, we were hoping the kids could take part in some activities but they needed to be booked in advance and seemed to be full day activities.
