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.

This is one of the best sites I have visited. The toilets are dated but are very clean.

This review is for Clitheroe

This is one of the best sites I have visited. The toilets are dated but are very clean. The wardens are terrific and are a credit to both themselves and the club. The park by the river is a bonus and access to the town and the surrounding area is incredibly easy. I will certainly return to this site.

Close to the Ribble, so it's easy to get onto the Ribble Way.

This review is for Clitheroe

Close to the Ribble, so it's easy to get onto the Ribble Way. There is a small supermarket about 400 metres up the road. It's also only about a mile to Clitheroe where there are a lot of shops. The staff on the site were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my time here. Thanks to all.

The toilet/shower blocks (always clean) are old and small and need urgent updating.

The toilet/shower blocks (always clean) are old and small and need urgent updating. The area is exceptionally pretty with many small villages worthy of a visit - eg, Waddington. Would I go to Clitheroe again? Definitely.

A well kept site within walking distance of Clitheroe.

This review is for Clitheroe

A well kept site within walking distance of Clitheroe. We also walked a short way along the river Ribble and saw sandmartins nesting on the opposite bank - a first for us. The wardens were helpful and cheerful. We were on one of the level pitches, some of the others on the higher terraces needed chocks to level up. A compact site, mowed impeccably, facilities clean and warm. Although we have a continental unit we were still told to reverse in which meant our door/awning faced the opening of the next unit. An explanation as to why would have been nice. There's a housing development being built in the next field which may enclose the site a little in the future and may take away it's rural feel, which is a real shame.
