A valley campsite on the Lancashire borders.

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. A tranquil oasis among the trees of the Edisford Riverside Picnic and Recreation Area, this campsite is popular with families.

The 80 pitch 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.

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.

A very enjoyable stay and cannot understand the bad reviews.

This review is for Clitheroe

A very enjoyable stay and cannot understand the bad reviews. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The toilet/shower facilities are basic but kept clean. The pitches can get water logged with rain fall but that's all part of the camping experience and did not spoil our stay in anyway. Clitheroe town centre is easily accessible via foot or car and the river walk was delightful. Overall I would recommend this site and definitely one to re-vivisit.

This review is for Clitheroe

I have visited this site on many occasions, but was saddened to see the housing development right next door. This will turn a rural idyll into a suburban campsite which happens to be next to a river. I am looking around for somewhere else. My little daughter was also scared of the big gangs of teenagers hanging around the campsite gate.
