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. 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.

This is a small but beautiful site with very pleasant and helpful staff.

This review is for Clitheroe

This is a small but beautiful site with very pleasant and helpful staff. It is kept very clean and tidy with easy access to all facilities. Located adjacent to the river which provides easy walks in both directions. The site office sell 4 guides for walks at only 20p per guide (money goes to charity). This is a brilliant idea as the public footpaths along the river are not always clearly signposted. The centre of Clitheroe is also in easy walking distance. We loved our short stay and would certainly recommend it.

Booked this last minute as was the only site free.

This review is for Clitheroe

Booked this last minute as was the only site free. Never having stayed on a Camping and Caravan Club site before only on Caravan Club sites. Read previous negative reviews and was apprehensive about what to expect. We need not have worried. We were given a warm and helpful welcome from graham and Jayne. The site is in a beautiful location next to the River Ribble. The toilets and showers were spotlessly clean. The rubbish collection points were all well maintained. It is true there are only three showers and loos for the ladies but this was never a problem at all. It is only a mile into Clitheroe, easy flat walk. We were so impressed by this site that we joined the Caravan and Camping Club while we were there. Keep up the good work Graham and Jayne. We would not hesitate to come back.

The site is just next to the River Ribble and the Ribble Way, so walking alongside the river is a must. The town of Clitheroe is just down the road for all essentials.
