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.

The site is excellent & very well looked after by Gerald & Maureen I cannot understand the bad reviews. the 'hard standings' are chippings covered with mesh & grass Although it can get a bit muddy after heavy rain. It does not cause great problems.This is one of the best Club sites & does not deserve these bad reviews.We go to CLITHEROE 6 or 7 times per year & have never been disappointed.

This review is for Clitheroe

The hardstandings need to be replaced with stone pitches especially on the lower pitches which were boggy despite little rain. The toilet blocks are in desperate need of refurbishment. We wouldn't even use the showers because of the state of the floor. This wasn't a cleanliness issue, it was more a need for replacement.

This sadly was a big disappointment.

This review is for Clitheroe

This sadly was a big disappointment. Sites hard standings are anything but! Boggy, overgrown and embedded plastic mesh made for more of a swamp. Staff were not particularly welcoming. Worst part though was the facilities block. Not only were they extremely dated, they were disgustingly grubby and dirty. The floor is grimy with dirt and they obviously dont get anytbing other than a bare minimum clean. Raised points above with club but just got a pretty standard "We'll pass it on" reply so I wouldn't expect anytbing to change.. Not for me

Great site despite being wet and soggy. The site would benefit from hard standings.

This review is for Clitheroe

Great site despite being wet and soggy. The site would benefit from hard standings. I felt very sorry for the wardens Maureen and Gerald as they had to work 7 days a week without a break. There were no relief wardens on site!!!! No one should have to work all the time! They did their utmost to keep the site clean and were very friendly despite the long hours they put it. So 10 out of 10 to you both, well done and thank you.
