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.

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.

First time visitor to this his site.

This review is for Clitheroe

First time visitor to this his site. Easy access to site, nil problems there, checked in easy also, staff very friendly and as always on clubs sites helpful. Shown to our chosen pitch nice flat pitch, with a well maintained lawn next to it. Just a short stroll from the site is the River Ribble plenty of sitting space by the river side, the river appears very shallow so kids could safely play. Come the site turn left over the bridge (10 minute walk) you find a charming pub, give this pub a try food was fantastic,bit expensive for a pub but well worth it,all food cooked strait from the kitchen over all I loved the site and will return.

Set on the edge of the town adjacent to the River and community parklands.

This review is for Clitheroe

Set on the edge of the town adjacent to the River and community parklands. Site staff are very friendly and helpful. Access to the site off the main road is via a singe width lane, no waiting areas are available for early arrivals The site is broken down into several areas, with grass and hardstanding pitches around the access route (one way, with small cil de sac areas off this. There are numerous water supply, grey waste and bin waste areas around the site all within easy reach, the toilet and laundry blocks are at the site entrance and are sufficient if somewhat shabby chic. There is a single washer and dryer in the laundry. The site office is also a small shop and provides some amenities although the town centre is within easy reach approx 1 mile and there is a Spar supermarket with cashpoint within a few 100 yds of the site entrance. Club WiFi is available although we did not use it and mobile reception is good. The site was busy during the week and filled at the weekend, so early booking would be recommended. As you are adjacent to the river and council park there are plenty of opportunities for walks straight from site.
