Waddington, Ribble Valley, Lancashire

We spent our Christmas weekend on a site we haven’t stayed at before in Waddington, just 2 miles out of Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley.  Cross Lane Caravan & Camping Park is a lovely spot, conveniently located away from the main road and just a mile from the village centre.   It’s a Camping & Caravanning Club Certified Site, open all year, with 5 spacious hard standing pitches with electric hook-up (£12 per night) and space for tents.


We were the only visitors over Christmas & Boxing Day so had the place to ourselves.  We didn’t use the facilities other than chemical disposal point, but there were toilet, hand-washing and shower facilities provided.  We used Jolly’s own facilities.

From the pitch, the view of Pendle Hill in the distance was pretty impressive even when the weather was dull, foggy and rainy.  Christmas night we experienced gale force winds battering us, but had some protection from surrounding bushes and trees and Jolly only swayed about a few times!

There are many places of interest to visit in this area (see previous ‘Clitheroe’ posts and the following link …


However, we visited to spend Christmas Day with family in Clitheroe and Boxing Day in Waddington, again with family, to celebrate Bri’s birthday.  As always, a thoroughly enjoyable trip.  We’ll definitely be using this site again too.

We’ve a few weeks now until our next Jolly outing in early March as we’ve a family celebration and a holiday abroad in February beforehand.  Eek, March sounds such a long time off but it’ll be here before we know it!
