This site is in a lovely situation, right along the river, though all safely fenced. The wardens keep it neat and tidy and are extremely helpful and friendly. The toilet block is dated but very clean, and newly painted. The mesh handstandings are not as good as gravel or Tarmac as muddy puddles occur but as most caravanners are outdoor people it doesn't really matter!

Clitheroe is 20 minutes walk away, a very interesting town with its castle, church and market.

There are many good walks in the area, we also visited Whalley and ate at the Dog Inn - fabulous meal!

Big disappointment!

These can never be described as hardstanding. The plastic mesh is so far sunken into the ground that it is ineffective. In fact the mesh acts as a reservoir for water leaving a very boggy pitch.

The toilet and shower block is also the most dated and disgustingly dirty I have ever experienced. They are 'cleaned' to the bare minimum, the floor is grimy!

Needless to say, I wont be back

Living just 40 mins away in Skipton this site has become a real bolthole for us. We are members of the C&CC who have a site across the other side of the river but prefer this family run site as it is smaller and has lovely views, and is considerably cheaper. Literally a two minute walk to a welcoming country pub. We love exploring the town of Clitheroe and the little market is fantastic for local produce, great for the BBQ.

Have been here 4 times in the last couple of months, need to be near home due to family illness, but as soon as we pitch we could be miles away, very relaxing, we just love it. Hoping to sqeeze another visit in soon.

This site is a gem for its friendliness and pleasant surroundings. Right next door to the riverside country park with pitch and putt. We had really nice weather and every day the riverside area was used by families picnicking and paddling. The toilet block is shabby but kept clean enough, it certainly doesn't spoil your stay. We found there wasn't much info on the dog friendly websites for the area or in previous reviews, so.

The Edisford Arms has plenty of mentions on here plus it allows dogs in the non-carpeted areas of the pub, a really good meal with most main courses about 10. In Clitheroe itself we used the New Inn, Brown Cow Inn and the Kings Arms (which is the nearest pub going in the Clitheroe direction - all dog friendly.

A really nice area for walking and you can buy walks from the reception. Would recommend this site and it will be on our to do list for next year.

Arrived at tea time lovely greeting by wardens and shown to pitch was busy for arrivals and we were blocking the road whilst we pitched up wardens told us to take our time there was room for others to drive round. Lovely friendly site facilities clean never queued for showers all weekend morning or night! Washing up area clean and tidy use of laundrette with 2 kids is always a bonus to clean uniforms after school.

Park near the site but Friday evening took my boys to play and didn't stay long as local teenagers where making their language and behaviour unbearable for me to subject my children too as it was 7. 30pm so we walked the dogs instead.

As we had no ehu we didn't need to leave our pitch until 4pm which we made the most of the nice weather the kids could ish in the river and play, I guess this is subject to the season times and if pitches are required but the wardens let you know.

Lovely site for a quick get away spar and chip shop close to site if you fancy not cooking.

Clitheroe is a lovely town with the castle and grounds short walk from site about 20 mins or so local swimming pool over the road from site.

Have re booked again

Took advantage of a Camping & Caravanning Club offer to spend a week at the Clitheroe site - one we have not visited for over 20 years. Not a lot seems to have changed on the site over that time - except the trees are much taller and you can't actually see the river from the site now.

Checked in by the friendly Assistant Warden, and given the choice of six or seven pitches. We had booked hard stand, but in reality this turned out to be one of the infamous 'all weather' pitches - basically a plastic mesh mat pushed into the grass. Great when fine, but don't half hold the water when wet. Despite it being the warmest week of the year, part of our pitch never did dry out.

The site location is great - about 20 minutes walk into the town, where we spent a very pleasant day; market days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. There are are at least four supermarkets, and lots of small local shops, as well as the castle. Clitheroe is also well served by buses to the nearby villages, as well as the major towns of Preston, Blackburn, Burnley and Skipton.

Several modest pleasant walks are available from the site, along the river. We walked to Waddington and to Great Mytton. There is also an excellent pub - The Edisford Bridge - just across the river bridge from the site. It does very good - if not cheap - meals. Also has a good selection of beers, and friendly staff.

During the week the site was generally quiet - but over the weekend bedlam broke loose with young children racing round on bikes, shouting to each other - and their parents utterly oblivious to the annoyance they were causing other campers, as well as the dangers to their unsupervised offspring. There are no child play facilities on the site; there is a small park municipal adjacent, but not visible.

Facilities on the site consist of two small blocks - but one was only open from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime. This was really not acceptable as at peak times the remaining toilets and showers were certainly stretched. They are also somewhat dated, although always clean.

There is also a small shop at the office - but it IS expensive; we were sold a pack of sausages that had been frozen on site, but had a supermarket price reduction label that showed 60p less than we were charged, and the bangers were two weeks beyond their 'best before' date! Milk was 1. 10 a bottle. It only opens an hour and a half morning & afternoon. There is a Spar mini-market less than half a mile down the road, quite well stocked and much more modestly priced. AND it is open all day 'till late.

The Forest of Bowland is a beautiful area with very friendly local people, and we had a really good holiday. Would we return to this site (given that we are veteran Club members)? Well, perhaps in another 20 years when it has had some inward investment, and become Adults Only!
