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

After visiting this site a couple of years ago, we returned for the busy May Bank Holiday weekend. Both Linda and Bob were welcoming and friendly from the minute we arrived. The facilities were spotlessly clean and pitches upgraded and so much better. The site is perfect location for a good walk into Clitheroe itself which has a number of attractions worth visiting. There's a small park just a short distance away from the site which leads to a large recreation area and the gorgeous River Ribble at the bottom. A must for any families on a warm day!!

The site is within walking distance of Clitheroe, which is a lovely town.

This review is for Clitheroe

The site is within walking distance of Clitheroe, which is a lovely town. Although it was busy being a school holiday weekend, the site does not feel overcrowded and pitches are generous. Facilities are clean. Linda & Bob are lovely, very welcoming with an informative reception. Also very good natured and helpfully opened up the office when we had an emergency after hours. Thank you both.
