How far can you travel?
That will give someone a basis for suggestions.

Your close to the Trough of Bowland so a look at sites on here [url]http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/ ... =clitheroe[/url] should get you started.Crawshaw Farm looks particularly interesting on there.
This is another link to that farm.[url]https://www.coolcamping.co.uk/camp ... wshaw-farm[/url]
Anglesey or the Lleyn Peninsula in north Wales should be good too.
Hope this helps.

You are next door to the Yorkshire Dales and there are campsites there: Ingleton, Malham, etc.
