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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Grass service pitches are sloping and chocks may be required. No ball games are allowed on site.

This site was recommended, and we were certainly not disappointed.

This review is for Clitheroe

This site was recommended, and we were certainly not disappointed. Sue & Rich were delightful and helpful. Our pitch near the river was quiet and perfect. Facilities were great and everyone so friendly. This site was our first as members of the camping & caravan club. In the country but close enough to Clitheroe. We only live 18 miles away but so enjoyed the castle and town. A lovely meal at The Assheton Arms at Downham. A short break but it certainly wont be our last. Many thanks

We were welcomed and checked in by very friendly wardens.

This review is for Clitheroe

We were welcomed and checked in by very friendly wardens. The facilities are newly refurbished. A few minutes walk and you are on the path by the river or a 20 minute walk into Clitheroe. The town has a nice park at the bottom of the castle. Interesting shops, cafes and places to have a drink or eat. Can recommend the Emporium or Holmes Mill. We look forward to a revisit.

This review is for Clitheroe

The Managers and Assistants were helpful and friendly and the four of them worked very well together which is for the benefit of all campers. The site and facilities are first class and cannot be faulted and our stay there was such a pleasant experience. It was our second holiday there and I am only sad that we live at the other end of the country so to not allow us to camp their more often. Great place for children with so many facilities just a 100 yards off site. A walkers and cyclists paradise with so many byways and footpaths and the Lancashire moors so close by. Good country pubs abound most with hearty fare and welcome. Great and a beautiful area of England, a place where I would recommend to any country lover. The Site Staff were the cream on the cake.
