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. Amongst 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.

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

This site is handy for the pleasant town, as well as having enjoyable riverside walks from the site. The shower block is lovely and warm and has good showers. It was very relaxing to watch the birds in the river bank trees. We enjoyed our stay and will most likely go back in the future. There are good local pubs, including the one just over the bridge. We had a very good meal at the Aspinall arms, who accommodated my dietry requirements.

The site always suffered if weather was wet so the level pitches very welcome.

This review is for Clitheroe

The site always suffered if weather was wet so the level pitches very welcome. One of our fave sites. Love the Ribble Valley and riverside setting. I've never seen wardens work as hard as Bob n wife! With no asst wardens either! Site shop has basics but the spar isn't far. The local pub serves good food. What else do you want?!

On booking was informed that there would be some site disruption due to improvement works.

This review is for Clitheroe

On booking was informed that there would be some site disruption due to improvement works. What we didn't expect was that the whole site was in effect a reconstruction site with mud and gravel on the access roads. Construction traffic between 8am and 4pm. The site will be better when it's all finished but perhaps the site would have been better closed for the duration of the work
