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 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.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Our clan STARTED off on the 'annexe tent field' in our caravan (long story).

This review is for Clitheroe

Our clan STARTED off on the 'annexe tent field' in our caravan (long story). However, the plot was soooooh badly drained that mud was squelching up through our awning (webbed) groundsheet. The weather had been so wet and, as we had our daughter and her husband, our 12 month old grandson and our dog with us, it all became a little too restrictive having a totally unusable awning area. Anyway, as heavy rain was forecast, after the first few nights, we decided to ask for a different (hardstanding) plot rather than leave to go home. So, FINALLY, we washed the groundsheet, dried out and packed away the awning then set up again on a lovely, corner plot where we had a dry, outdoor play space and somewhere to keep the dog tied up and clean!! Guess what? the rain stayed away, the sun came out (between the tall trees) and we had a fabulous final two days - even though the nightly cost was well over �50 per night for our entourage on a plot (albeit a split booking) for our stay. OUCH!! as a Yorkshireman, that was a lot of money. Especially as the shower block always seemed to have queues every time we went and workmen were busy relaying gravel on the site's roads and middle plots.

We would highly recommend this site; the site is well run and all facilities are very clean and in good order. Camp Managers were helpful and recommended local pubs and places to eat. Definitely worth a visit and caters for all ages and needs. We will be coming back in the future!

This review is for Clitheroe

We think this site is fantastic and I think that's because Bob n Linda, the Wardens, are exceptionally helpful, welcoming and want you to have a good time. There's a local pub in walking distance serving good food, and if you want to drive into Clitheroe then you must try the Bowland Brewery - but get a cab back!! There's no doubt that we'll return and the sooner the better. There's also no doubt that this site is welcoming and friendly because of Bob n Linda. Exceptional wardens.
