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.

Eat Local

I gave this site five stars for friendliness but wish I could give more for Bob & Linda.

This review is for Clitheroe

I gave this site five stars for friendliness but wish I could give more for Bob & Linda. What an improvement a year makes! I have used this site (on & off) over the years, being from Clitheroe. But I actually hated it. Wet, filthy muddy pitches, noisy, packed and (previously) challenging wardens! But the pitches are lovely now, clean and spacious. Toilet blocks are old, but some improvements made last year and fantastically clean. We went during term time & out of season. Not sure how grass areas and minimal facilities will cope peak season holidays? We stayed an extra night and booked a return visit.

The site has had a much needed upgrade to the pitches and are very well cared for by the wardens. But the toilet block is in need of doing up, They are kept very clean as is a credit to the wardens. WIFI is not very good it lets you pay for it but is not usable (grandsons were very disappointed) waste of time and money

Arrived during the recent arctic conditions to be greeted with the warmest of welcomes from Bob and Linda even with the offer of a hot drink. They were both extremely helpful during our stay and personified your slogan of the friendly club. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
