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.

The 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. Set amongst the trees of the Edisford Riverside Picnic and Recreation Area, this campsite is popular with families.

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.

Worth Noting

Some pitches are sloping and chocks will be required.

Due to the limited parking spaces on-site, we can only accommodate one vehicle per pitch. Alternative parking is available off-site.

There is a Hail and Ride bus service to Clitheroe town centre which picks up 500m from the site entrance.

We chose clitheroe as it was less than an hour from home and listed as having friendly staff and being clean. We arrived to find the reviews were spot on the greeting we received was second to none and the site was spotless . Soon got set up and even managed to blow all our electrics but was soon up and running again with a fresh fuse kindly found by the site staff. Worked out most of the kinks and can't wait to get out again Weather was a bit of a let down but that's just weather and not down to anyone Site was perfect clean tidy and in a really good spot beside the river yet fairly close to clitheroe itself. So plenty of amenities close by if needed Pretty little town with lots of walks and history But of a castle and museum is good Swimming baths close to the site entrance if you fancy a swim Will definitely be returning sometime A1 site .

Nice welcome, but the star of the show is Bob one of the friendliest Wardens we have met, we had a great 7 day stay, got sited on a quiet part of the site Pitch 33, which we were very happy with, people on site were also friendly which also adds to your stay. We didn't use the toilet block as too dated, I always feel this let's the Camping and caravan club down their old and tired toilet blocks, that is why we camp more with their competitor !!!!! and that is the reason why we never book much with yourselves, but we do enjoy your friendliness which is outstanding. Clitheroe is a lovely small Town with all usual attractions on offer, Brewery, Castle, Market etc, Swimming Baths over the road 5 mins walk, and such beautiful picturesque villages in the area to visit, there are also plenty dog walks in the area, and a Children's play park just outside the exit barrier so plenty to do for all ages, we would definitely return but come on please update your toilet blocks.
