Welcome to Calder Farm Campsite
Calder Farm is a small family run campsite located in the beautiful village of Bolton by Bowland in the heart of the Ribble Valley.
Set in over an acre of land all pitches have fantastic views of Pendle Hill and the Ribble Valley.
With 12 hard standing pitches, additional grass areas and a fully furnished, ensuite camping pod we cater for all campers.
Stay in our new camping pod and even bring your horse for the holiday!
Summer 2018 saw the arrival of our first camping pod, Acorns.
Relax outside on the patio on a sunny day or warm up after a winters walk in our heated pod and enjoy the beautiful views of the Ribble Valley.
For owners of horses we can also offer stables, grazing and an arena, with the Penine bridleway only a 30 minute ride away.
So many things to see and do...
DAYS OUT FOR EVERYONE IN THE RIBBLE VALLEY AND BEYOND
There are fantastic views of Pendle Hill from the campsite and it can be walked by a number of circular routes. Below the hill are some lovely villages and the area is also famous for the Pendle Witches who went on trial in Lancaster Castle in 1612. Numerous Pendle Witch themed events are run (especially around halloween!) and there are both Pendle Witch Walking and Road Trails to follow.
Standing at the top of Skipton High Street, Skipton Castle is an incredibly maintained building which is over 900 years old.
Visitors can explore almost every corner of the castle and a comprehensive tour sheet is provided with admission. There is a gift shop and tea room as well as plenty of outdoor areas to have a picnic.
Skipton Castle is open daily from 10am (Sunday from 11am)
Last admission is at 5pm (October - March 4pm)
Closed 23rd, 24th & 25th December
Set in the beautiful Forest of Bowland AONB and with award winning mountain bike trails and miles of walking tracks Gisburn Forest is a fantastic location for a day out. It also has a cafe with a play area for the kids so you can get refreshments after the day's activities.
There are often themed walks such as the Gruffalo trail where you can search for the character boards and, using an interactive app for your phone, see them come to life!
Settle to Carlisle Railway
"72 miles of scenic splendour"!
The Settle to Carlisle Railway is one of the most scenic and impressive railways in the UK, with viaducts, tunnels and the wild scenery of the North Pennines, Eden Valley and Yorkshire Dales. Although regular trains frequent the line it adds considerably to the experience to do the journey aboard a steam train. For this it is advisable to book tickets ahead as it's very popular indeed!
Spectacular local areas
Located in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park there are countless outdoor activities to experience.
The area surrounding Calder Farm is perfect for walking, biking, fishing, kayaking, caving, rock climbing and many more activities besides,
with Pendle Hill, the Yorkshire three peaks, Gisburn Forest, Stocks Reservoir, Malham Cove and the Pennine Bridleway all close by.
If you prefer a slower pace there are histoic local towns such as Skipton and Settle to explore, castles to visit at Skipton and Clitheroe or you could appreciate the sights on a steam train along the famous Settle to Carlisle railway.
