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.

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.

The building work will come to an end but did create a bit of early morning noise.

This review is for Clitheroe

The building work will come to an end but did create a bit of early morning noise. The site is in a great position near the river. We walked into Clitheroe (20 mins) and had a lovely meal at the 'Emporium'. Toilet and shower block was immaculate and very warm. Good service points for waste and water too. Views of the local hills were spectacular and there is plenty to do and many walks. Swimming pool and sports centre just across the road.

This review is for Clitheroe

The hard standing (I use the term with some reserve) are not the traditional hard standing but the mat/grid type, On the third day I had to enlist the help of the warden to clear the 2 inch deep mud from the entrance to my awning, hose down my awning carpet and lay a membrain in the awning before replacing the awning carpet. The warden was more than obliging and provided gravel to try and create a mud free entrance to the unit. Having paid the extra for a hard standing given the time of year, I cant accept that the wet conditions at the start of the year are to blame. The obvious reason for the issue is the lack of investment in the site, its crying out for proper gravel hard standings. I wont be going back until the club take some action to provide what is booked and paid for

We really enjoyed our stay at this site.

This review is for Clitheroe

We really enjoyed our stay at this site. We enjoyed the circular walks from the site and the fact that it was an easy walk to Clitheroe and a local pub. Clitheroe itself is very pleasant - the walk up to the castle allows good views all around. The site managers were very helpful - towing us off a sloping grass site to a flatter harder site. Which brings us to the point of the lack of hard standings - at that time of year with heavy rainfall seemingly a feature of our winter hard standings are really a necessity. Had we not have been towed off at the end of our first day we may have been well and truly stuck as it rained moreduring our stay. We will definitely visit this site again.
