A valley campsite on the Lancashire borders.

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. A tranquil oasis among 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.

This site was a disappointment.

This review is for Clitheroe

This site was a disappointment. While its location is pleasant enough, near the river, the site is sloping and when wet quite dangerous. It was a good job we had a motor mover other wise we would not have got on the pitch as the ground was so slippery and up hill. The car did not grip and I would not have wanted to push the 'van, even if I could have got grip. I nearly fell several times. We were placed next to a large van that clearly never moved, know people leave their vans on sites, but this chap was obviously a permanent resident. He arrived back from work at 5.30 and sat in his car for 15 minutes with the radio blaring away. The next morning we were woken by the radio/TV in his 'van at 6am. He then went to work at 6.30am. When I complained to the people in reception they tried to tell me he was not permanent as the club rules say he can only stay 28 days then he is off site for 2 days. This, quite honestly, is laughable. We did not expect to find someone living on a touring site. We will not be going there again.

At reception they sold single eggs.

At reception they sold single eggs. This helps a lot when you are cycling or walking and don't want to carry 1/2 dozen.

Well looked after but soaking wet on both visits so not fair to make comments on local dog walks. We did not need town facilities so could not judge. Satnav rather struggled in streets.
