Set in Lancashire’s glorious Ribble Valley, south of the Forest of Bowland our Clitheroe Club campsite enjoys a parkland setting close to the River Ribble. Amongst the trees of the Edisford Riverside Picnic and Recreation Area, this campsite is popular with families.

The 80 pitch site caters for all types of unit and offers a good range of facilities for campers. The adjacent river offers swimming, canoeing and fishing opportunities. You can walk from the site too along the river to Waddington, Great Mitton or further.

A little over a mile from the campsite, Clitheroe is a bustling market town. Its castle dominates the local skyline and within its 16 acre site you’ll find the castle keep, a Labrynth and children’s playground. Clitheroe is also developing as Lancashire’s food town. Cowman’s Famous Sausage Shop is here – choose from over 75 flavours of sausage. And don’t miss the Clitheroe Food Festival in August.

The Ribble Valley is steeped in mystery and legend, fable and folklore. At Pendle Hill follow in the footsteps of the Pendle Witches who were involved in the most famous witchcraft trials in English history and for the younger campers there's a witch hunt held on site.

The Tolkein Trail takes you on a walking tour past Stonyhurst College where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was schooled and where J.R.R Tolkein penned some of The Lord of The Rings. The historic Whalley Abbey and Sawley Abbey are also worth visiting.

North of Clitheroe campsite, the Forest of Bowland is ripe for exploration on foot or by bike. There’s also horse riding, fishing and bird watching available.

Please note that due to local but off-site development and building works, some noise may on occasions be audible from site.

Lovely couple, Linda and Bob very helpful.

This review is for Clitheroe

Lovely couple, Linda and Bob very helpful. The site has great pitches, enclosed in trees with good outside space. Toilets although very clean with good heating and showers could do with updating and increasing in numbers. Highly recommend the Real Ale Brewery in town- great atmosphere. Good base to drive out or walk to lots of little villages and pubs through Waddington and over the tops with fab views of the Trough of Bowland and Pendle Hill. Will certainly be returning.

Amazed to see suggestion that tents are less welcome.

This review is for Clitheroe

Amazed to see suggestion that tents are less welcome. I have been here three times now, alone and in a tent and have had a wonderful, friendly welcome each time. The tents area is rather separated from the caravans/hard standing pitches. The area is level although there is a steep slope just behind leading down to the water point and some hard standing pitches. Toilets are very warm and clean but I should imagine they are insufficient in number at peak times. The toilet block strikes me as possibly needing modernisation but this is to quibble - I'm not planning to spend the day in there! I did not use electricity and so cannot comment on that. When I was there the site was quiet and peaceful (apart from temporary building work taking place outside the site). All in all, a good site.

This is our first visit to Clitheroe site.

This review is for Clitheroe

This is our first visit to Clitheroe site. Its not far from home but we have only ever driven through before. The area is great for those who love walking. Families with small children won't be disappointed, the site is by the river and has swings etc. and a small locomotive operates during busy times, there is also a mini golf course. Lots of beautiful unspoilt villages in the area, Downham village is one of the prettiest. Haworth is worth visiting with lovely park, cafe's and individual shops. The campsite is nicely kept and the wardens are friendly. However to keep up with competition the facilities really are in desperate need of upgrading. Whilst they are clean there are no windows in the facilities block, it looks tired and uninviting. Lovely relaxing stay in an area we will certainly have to explore more.

This review is for Clitheroe

I could not book EHU but when I arrived (minus my hook up) there was only one unit using the only point for tents. A very long lead would be needed. Steep slope by the tent field - glad that I did not have any young children with me. Although the showers were lovely and warn - two is not enough for number of units on the site. I went early to avoid queues but other people were saying later on that they had to queue. Another lady on a tent that I spoke to also said that they also felt tents were not over welcome.
