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.

Lovely location and area really enjoyed the castle and Clitheroe town has lots of nice shops, cafe's, quirky pubs, good sight seeing close by. Sight right by the River and playground right next to the site, plenty of room for manoeuvers and nice big pitches. Let down was customer service eg. a family had arrived at 12.20pm having travelled 12 hours from france and they would not let them enter the site until 1pm as they were "having lunch" least they could do was let them have the toilet facility code!! This showed complete lack of empathy in my eyes! There was a few other instances where a few other people staying had run in's with a lady on the reception who was a stickler for the rules to the "T" I understand rules are there for a reason but I think they need to understand people are on their holidays and not a prison camp! Having spoken to the staff it was clear there was a few firm favourite regulars on the site that got a special treatment (at the end of the day we all pay our CCC SUBS!!) My other grievance was the showers push button fine, good temperature however, the only 3 showers available all ran into each other meaning next doors dirty shower water was running into my feet (not nice). Just to note there was only 3 ladies and 3 gents toilets available for the whole site.We did also ask to pay for a late check out on the last day which was a Wednesday so the children could go swimming with child they had met on site, this was met with a very abrupt firm "No" despite plenty of pitches looking very empty on a very wet, windy mid - week!! I have to say there was a guy called Bob who was more than helpful, very cheery and was happy to help on maintenance and assisting with parking and info (I actually think he would be great on Reception/customer service!!!)

This review is for Clitheroe

Stayed for two nights on our way to Scotland, not a very big site but well maintained and spotlessly clean. The shower/toilet block is in need of updating. Lovely welcome by the staff and helpful information given. Great location, not to far to walk into Clitheroe and nice walks by the river. It was quite busy when we stayed and very popular with dog owners, we seemed to be the only ones without one! Nice site and would return off peak when quieter.
