A very warm and friendly welcome awaited at the Camping and Caravanning Club Clitheroe . There were already two or three units waiting to pitch, and it was clear the site staff were trying their best to offer a suitable pitch to everyone, such as shaded, sunny or evening shade etc!  I had originally booked a hard standing pitch as I always do, but I was offered a further choice of pitches none the less, albeit on grass. The grass pitch offered was in a quiet area on what I can only describe as a raised terrace – and – despite being grass – I took it!

The pitch enjoyed full for the majority of the day with some evening shade provided by the nearby trees – although me being a sun worshipper, a quick move of the chair solved that, but the shade on the motorhome was appreciated.

  • Pot wash area
  • Shower block
  • Family room
  • WiFi

The shower block is older rather than newer but very clean usable. The showers deliver water at a good flow rate – perfect for freshening up after a long, hot day in the sun.

Things to do and see from the Camping and Caravanning Club Clitheroe

Clitheroe town centre is about one mile away, it took about twenty minutes walk on foot and in addition to a bustling market, there are a wide range of shops and eateries in the town, perhaps the most famous being Cowmans Famous Sausage Shop. Inside, there were sausages of probably at least fifty varieties, and I tried “sun-dried tomato” and “black pudding” – both were delicious! The shop also sells a good range of meat at reasonable prices.

Further afield, nearby Preston and Blackburn offer further shopping facilities.

A few minutes walk from the site is Ribblesdale Swimming Pool. There is a 25 metre pool and also a smaller teaching pool. Admission was £3.70 and I was in there for about two hours – perfect on a hot day!

Again, just outside the side is the Edisford Park, alongside the River Ribble. There is a large childrens’ play area here and also the Edisford miniature railway. Foot paths run along the river bank and there are plenty of seating areas.

All in all, Camping and Caravanning Club Clitheroe offers a good base from which to explore the local area. You do not need to go far at all!
