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.

Our pitch was great, but sadly on our first night noise after 11pm resulted in the people in question being told about noise levels by site managers which didnt seem to matter to them.!! even though they were being repeatedly asked to keep quiet it continued to the point where someone from another van shouted to keep the noise down. This and 4 dogs - 2 of which were off leads and roamed around spoiled a lovely weekend, We like dogs but dont understand why people dont obey rules that are there for everyone to enjoy. so glad we only booked 2 nights.

This review is for Clitheroe

on arrival was booked in easy enough , then when shown to our picth the ground was very sloping , when we tried to level the van the hitch was at least 3 feet up in the air with the jockey wheel to its max and stood on a brick , witch in my eyes is unsafe , so asked to be moved to a level area , was moved, but when the inlaws asked to be moved with us all they got was a refusal from an arrigant site manager with no willingness to compramise , but then three days later moved another couple that refused to stay on the pitch next door. so if you are going to stay here be ready for battle for a level pitch , unless you pay an extra pound a nigth for so called hard standing witch is a complete con as it is only honeycomb plastic.

This review is for Clitheroe

I received a very warm welcome despite being late and was directed to a lovely level pitch after explaining it was my first trip in the new motorhome. The site is immaculately kept with a good variety of pitches on different levels and easy access to the river and children's play areas. There are lovely walks right off the site and excellent walking guides to be purchased from the shop for 30p - we did the Sculpture Trail one which I recommend. The shop is open all day which I thought was a boon and carries all the necessary items. The showers could be a bit more modern but everything was clean and tidy. Try not to get pitched by the bins as the refuse is only collected once a week and all 4 were overflowing and not pleasant in the heat. The Eddisford Bridge pub is within easy walking distance (over the bridge and a bit of a climb uphill) and I can recommend the food at a reasonable price. All in all a good site for exploring further afield.

This review is for Clitheroe

Site has everything already stated, however, we had a young guy with his small daughter pitched next to us in his "festival tent". Unfortunately, he brought no other equipment and took the "friendly" aspect of the club a bit far by persistently asking for cutlery and child minding services! This actually spoiled our last night. I am not sure if we had "hardstanding"? The area around the caravan was really boggy, and said man needed to be towed off in his smallish car, at one stage. Needless to say, we are going again. The area has such a lot to offer it is worth putting up with the old ablutions and soggy grass.
