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.

The site has insufficient toilets and showers.

This review is for Clitheroe

The site has insufficient toilets and showers. Some of the grass pitches are quite steep and may cause an issue when trying to tow off the pitch. Clitheroe is about 20 minutes walk and has lots of facilities. A walk around the castle is recommended. I would visit again if the site facilities were to be improved. I found the route through Clitheroe a bit fraught with all the parked vehicles.

This is a lovely site.

This review is for Clitheroe

This is a lovely site. Close to Clitheroe with lots to do and many walks for those who like to ramble. Close to river and local pub; great for dogs too. The toilet blocks were clean but could probably do with modernisation. We were extremely disappointed to see that a large number of grass with electric pitches have been changed to hard standing to accommodate caravans. Grass pitches with electric hook-up for tents were extremely limited and were on sloping ground. Perhaps the site owners should consider adding electricity to the " camping field". Other than that it was a well kept site and we would like to re-visit if we are able to book a grass with electric pitch for a tent!!!
