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.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights - Thursday to Monday.

This review is for Clitheroe

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights - Thursday to Monday. Loved the site, which is walking distance to Clitheroe town, river and pub which does excellent meals. Showers were push button, but okay. Only 2 showers in female block, although personally I did not queue as I picked my shower times, but presumably busy during am period when site is full. Numerous toilets, always clean and tidy. Site was quiet until weekend tents turned up in loud groups, pitched alongside caravanners. Kids running and cycling everywhere including across / inbetween pitches. Ball games being played even though notices displayed forbidding this. There is a housing development underway right next door to the site, which we did hear some noise from, prior to the weekend and the start of the week, but this is obviously temporary. I just hope this housing development does not affect the site in the future!

The in clitheroe are narrow and cars are parked on both sides of the road.

This review is for Clitheroe

The in clitheroe are narrow and cars are parked on both sides of the road. On leaving to get back to the M6 we followed the route passed the railway station and onto the inner ring road the A671. This avoided the narrow streets of the one way system. The toilet block floor needs replacing as it is lifting in places. A building site is now next to the site which may become noisy as time goes on

We booked a grass pitch for three nights.

This review is for Clitheroe

We booked a grass pitch for three nights. When we arrived we were able to pay for electrics which we were delighted with. When we were shown to our pitch it was in a quiet area with just two caravans, which as 75 year olds was perfect. Later that day a family of four and a dog with a large tent pitched opposite us. They were a little noisy, which you accept from a couple of youngsters and a terrier. The next evening(Friday) another two tenting families arrived and a little later three other tenting families started to pitch up. We were now surrounded by numerous children shouting and screaming and riding bikes. The other two caravans had left earlier. After a couple of hours we decided this was not acceptable. This was our first weekend away of the year and it was awful. So much so, that we decided it was far better that we go home. Before doing so we went to the office and voiced our disappointment at the situation but received little sympathy, so we left the site having paid for three days camping with electrics and stayed for just one night. A very expensive 'weekend'. Needless to say we will not be returning to Clitheroe, a sight we have previously enjoyed. If we had been told initially that we would be surrounded by tenting families then we would have asked for a pitch more suited to a couple of 75 year olds. If no other pitch had been available then at least it would have saved us the trouble of pitching up and putting up our awning. We could then have gone to a private site just up the road. We will in future use the many super quiet 5 van sites. A very disappointing start to our club camping this year.
