One of the many campsites at WaddowWaddow has five fully-equipped campsites: Craggwood, North Riding, Hilltop, Horseshoe and Wades Hill. Equipped campers have access to a lockable solid shelter with veranda. The veranda has an electric light and a power point and each site is equipped for 25 people. Equipped campers will also have access to up to five tents if requested prior to arrival. It is possible to borrow extra equipment and tents if more people are camping. Each campsite has their own section of the wash block with three toilets, washbasins and a shower.

We also now have a tented village campsite with ready-pitched tents, access to equipment, small hut and electric points. Perfect for younger groups or schools.

Main Campsites are open from late March to mid-October

Smaller Campsites are open January to December

There is a laundry service available on site for guests. A charge per washload will be incurred. Please provide your own washing powder.

Tented 'Village' on Craggside

PERFECT for groups who want to camp and want to spend more time on activities than putting up tents!

Built on wooden platforms, our three ready-pitched canvas tents (sleeping 6-8 persons) are now available to book. One tent will have wheelchair ramp accessibility. The Village will be situated on the upper part of part of Craggwood's field with separate access for Craggwood and Craggside campers. There is also a small hut on site which may be booked, if required. The site has a water tap and fire area. Bring your own equipment or hire from Waddow. Additional lightweight tents and a dining shelter can also be hired for larger groups.


Secluded between a natural crag and a wooded area, Craggwood is a short distance from the camp car park. A hand cart is provided to assist you transporting your equipment.  

North Riding

Closest to the toilet block, North Riding is a large, flat site. The hut is situated at the far end of this campsite.


Hilltop has stunning views across towards Waddington village and beyond. 

Firth's Fell

A small unequipped site with access to hut and electricity. Ideal for smaller groups or Duke of Edinburgh camps.


With a conveniently close water tap, Horseshoe is a flat site with the hut situated close to the gate.

Wades Hill

Set back from the other sites, Wades Hill is the area believed to have been used by the Anglo-Saxon Chief Wadda. Wades Hill has panoramic views across the Ribble Valley.

Dogwood - open all year

In addition to the five equipped sites we have one large unequipped site, Dogwood, which has a water tap nearby. Equipment can be provided for unequipped sites if enough notice is given. Many guests book Ribble Lodge indoor accommodation in conjunction with this site.

Patrol Site & Bothy Site - open all year

There are also two small campsites, the Patrol site which can be equipped and the Bothy, an unequipped campsite with a traditional Bothy shelter.

Camping for disabled visitors

We strongly advise any group bringing disabled guests to visit the site to assess the suitability. There is a wash unit suitable for the disabled.
