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 Ribble Valley is steeped in mystery and legend, fable and folklore. At Pendle Hill follow in the footsteps of the Pendle Witches who were involved in the most famous witchcraft trials in English history and for the younger campers there's a witch hunt held on site.

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.

Please note that due to local but off-site development and building works, some noise may on occasions be audible from site.

This review is for Clitheroe

A lovely site close to the river and great for dog walks the scenery is stunning I saw Heron fishing every day. The toilets and shower block needs updating inside the ceiling is coming away and I think two showers is not enough for the size of the site, my major concern was access to the site when other vans were booking in as there was no where for those vehicles to park to allow other site users entry to their pitch, I had to just sit and wait one day whilst three vans were booked in the staff did apologise but I think it needs looking at. Clitheroe is a great market town and I found an ironmongers where you can still buy nails, nuts and screws individually which was just what I needed when I went looking for a spare nut for my van, great butchers and a variety of well known supermarkets all close by the petrol stations compete with each other so great prices on fuel. Whalley is another lovely market town well worth a visit wander around the back streets and you come across some beautiful streets and I think an old Abbey with a stunning stone entrance to gardens that you can walk around.

Great site for stop off north/south on M6.

This review is for Clitheroe

Great site for stop off north/south on M6. Clitheroe is a lovely town, historic, lacking the usual high street shops. A 25 minute walk from site to town, with good pubs along the way. Well serviced with large supermarkets for necessities. Lots of cafes and places to eat. The Holmes Mill is well worth the visit to sample huge range of Bowland Beers, plus others. The Keep, overlooking the town is worth the climb. Pretty riverside walks from the site, large leisure centre across the road. Lovely countryside to explore but needs a car to access the hills as local transport is limited. The site is very well managed, staff are hardworking and friendly. The amenity blocks (2) small ones are dated, but adequate. I would like to think this site is on the clubs' list for updating, as it is the one site in Lancashire. Well worth a visit.

An excellent side by the river Ribble. Very frienldy wardens.

This review is for Clitheroe

An excellent side by the river Ribble. Very frienldy wardens. All the pitches including the grass ones well kept. Only downside would be, the small numbers of toilets and showers for the size of site. Otherwise highly recommended. For walkers some excellent walks along the river just ask at reception for the sheets.

This review is for Clitheroe

The access to each pitch needs widening as otherwise vans have to go over the corners on the grass which ruins it. Vans just can't access or egress at 90 degrees the individual pitch. There are plenty of good walks to be had in the locality with Pendle Hill and the Trough of Bowland short drives away. Clitheroe is well blessed for food shopping with Sainsbury's, Tesco, Booths, Lidl and Alldi easily accessible and with hassle free parking. Nice surprise when expecting 'Dark, satanic mills!' Easy access from M6 & M65.
