Reviewer: Pixie_Hez 42 reviews from this member

We stayed here for three days and were really fortunate to have amazing weather for February! The site is small with narrow hardstandings which are mainly flat. The toilet block has been newly refurbished and looks very nice but we didn’t get to use it as they were having teething problems when we were there and there was no hot water. The wardens were very good, despite the difficult circumstances, and kept everyone up to date with what was going on. Our ordnance survey map showed some good walks nearby but these didn’t turn out to be as good as we had hoped.

Clitheroe town centre is about a half hour walk from the site but again, it didn’t really seem that great. Skipton is a half hour drive away and it is much nicer for a day out. The site is quite close to a sewage works and on the Saturday night the wind must have been in the wrong direction as the pong was awful! So, overall, the site was fine, the location poor and we probably wouldn’t go back.

Friendly wardens. Make sure you do not arrive before the time stated because not much room for many outfits near the reception area. More than two outfits and you block the narrow exit/entry road. Also was told not to arrive before 1pm or would be turned away. Pitches large enough ours was hardstanding gravel pitch with electric. Toilet block clean and warm but dated and small. There were two toilet/shower blocks side by side, one had only 3 toilets and 2 showers and the other one had 1 shower and 2 toilets. They were not central so depending where your pitch is, you may have a good walk to them.

Location was lovely next to the River Ribble. Children were having fun playing in the shallow river. Fantastic pub 10 mins walk away that did good affordable food. Clitheroe about a mile away, we did not visit as it was a bank hol and did not think much would be open. We had a lazy 3 days not doing much or going anywhere as it was so hot while we were there. Looks like there are plenty of walks and places to visit

We would visit this site again and in different weather would probably do some walking and visit Clitheroe.

Typical C&C Club site by the river on the edge of town. Wardens helpful as ever but the facilities are not as modern as some other sites.

It is a rather long walk to town and the bus service has been withdrawn. The town is interesting, if quite small, but the surrounding countryside is lovely.

The New Inn is a fantastic place for a few drinks but doesn't do any food. We had a delicious Indian meal at the Dil Raj down the street. Jenni Pho is also a great place for noodles at a reasonable price.

Reviewer: Centreno13 10 reviews from this member

Had 3 nights here, some reviews mentioned standing water and hard standing pitches were a mat under grass, well this has now all been changed, all pitches are now proper hardcore pitches and have been raised to avoid any standing water where there was an issue, which was a pleasant surprise, although, we had no rain and wall to wall blue skies.

Nicely situated by the river ribble with plenty of choice to walk your dog. The facilities however are poor, I don't understand the camping and caravan club, a lot of there facilities are below standard and fall short of privately owned sites. Very old and on there last legs, not enough, 3 showers and 3 toilets in one block, there was another block but they were closed had to wait on too many occasions in a very small block.

Its a long walk into Clitheroe and all the bus stops had a sign on saying bus stop closed, didn't see any buses at all? rather strange. The walk to the pub you can see from the site is across a busy long narrow bridge where the cars have to wait for another to cross and there's no footpath on it a bit dangerous, especially in the dark after a few pints. The area of the Forest of Bowland is nice enough, lovely rolling green hills with plenty of footpaths, but once you're on the top its just peat bog, I love the Mountains of the Lakes and Scotland so it was a bit tame for us but had a lovely few walks along some fantastic valleys in the sunshine. It did its job though and our stay was good. Would I stay there again???? unsure, possibly not.

Not the friendliest of welcomes - I had parked my car and went to walk around to reception which was the wrong way - you waked around the barrier - but I did not realise that at the time as it is not signed - only to be greeted with 'You can't park there'. I asked where did I park to book in - oh that was different.

Then there was a load of hassle as my name wasn't on the sheet that the lady had printed that morning - it was a last minute decision on my part as I had was unsure if I could get away or not as I had been for a endoscope in the morning - I pointed out that I had booked last minute online and I was eventually 'found'.

Then shown to my pitch. I felt that tents are now very much the poor relation - they have been relegate to one small area. I had tried to book EHU on line only to be unsuccessful - yet there were only the tents on this field and the point had four hook ups. When we arrived there was only one other tent on the fields and they were using one of the hook ups. The only other party to arrive in a tent did not use EHU. I could easily have had an EHU pitch.

Chatting to one of the other tenters they too felt that tents were second class citizens - the poor relations who gets put in the corner at family dos save embarrassment.

Had a lovely weekend here. Pitches are a good size, staff very friendly. Whilst we were there the cafe realised that dogs were now allowed into an exclusive area. This is just outside the 'club' area so you could get a drink from the bar and sit there enjoying it with your dog, definitely a step forward!

Just had a very peaceful couple of nights at this beautiful little site. Lovely walks straight from site along river bank with dogs. Because of the recent very bad wet weather we were a little apprehensive as to what the river walk would be like but for most part it is a solid stone pathway. Saw lots of beautiful birds including kingfishers. Apparently otters have been seen along the river bank but they had obviously gone on holiday last weekend! The site itself had suffered a bit due to the wet but the wardens had done an excellent job of keeping on top of it. The walk into Clitheroe itself took a little longer than we thought (about 20 mins) but it is a pleasant walk and the town is so worth the walk. Lovely little shops and cafes. The walk up to the castle is amazing. In all, a really great weekend.

An ideal location for visiting the delightful Clitheroe town and surrounding area, however it has a major drawback due to the lack of reinvestment by the C&CC club in the site!

The toilet block/s is in dire need of refurbishment. The lower half of the site is prone to waterlogged pitches, and the grass mat/hardstanding compounds the problem creating mud baths. The Wi-Fi is still only available within the immediate vicinity on the reception area (despite assurances 4 years ago from the C&CC club this would be improved).

Upside of the site is the location that provides direct access to so many walks, access to the adjoining leisure centre and an easy 1 ¼ mile walk into Clitheroe centre with all of the good eateries, independent shops and market.

Aspinal Arms (2 ½ mile riverside walk South of site) is a dog friendly pub with great food, beer and wine – well worth the walk for a lunch time meal.

This could be a wonderful site if the C&CC club invested money into much needed refurbishment and improvements to the site and facilities to take this up to modern day standards that are provided by other sites in the area.

Arrived in heavy rain, quite late on Friday evening. David, the warden was extremely helpful in finding a pitch where we wouldn't drown, even though he had already finished his shift. Glad to see that parts of the site had been closed due to excessive standing water. Facilities all good as you would expect from C&CC. Drove over to Skipton, only 20 miles and well worth a visit. Will visit many times again.

Very nice site within 20 minutes walk into clitheroe where there are some nice shops and a castle to visit. The site is clean and well maintained it had been raining for a couple of weeks before we went but that didn't cause us a problem although it could possibly do as the hard standing was the plastic matting which does tend to sink so choose the pitch wisely. Site is just by the river and the picnic area so some lovely walks. Very good and reasonably prices meal at the Edisford Bridge pub which is five minutes walk away. Would revisit this site.
