Alan Rogers Review

Clitheroe Camping & Caravanning Club site is to be found in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, south of the Forest of Bowland. The Forest of Bowland is ripe for exploration on foot or by bike. There is also horse riding, fishing and bird watching available. The adjacent river offers swimming, canoeing and fishing opportunities. You can walk from the site along the river to Waddington, Great Mitton or further. Set amongst the trees of the Edisford Riverside Picnic and Recreation Area, this site is popular with families. The site has 95 grass or hardstanding pitches (some of which are seasonal). Most have electric hook-up. There are also 2 safari tents available for hire.

N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

A little over a mile away is the bustling market town of Clitheroe. Its castle dominates the local skyline and within its 16 acre site you will find the castle keep, a Labyrinth and children’s playground. The Tolkien Trail takes you on a walking tour past Stonyhurst College where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was schooled and where some of J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of The Rings was written. The historic Whalley Abbey and Sawley Abbey are also worth visiting.
