Why stay here ...

Despite being conveniently located near major motorways (M1, M6 and M42) and the National Exhibition Centre and Birmingham, Chapel Lane Club Site is a rural gem that will take you by surprise. Set in the shadow of a charming old chapel and with a pleasant open-field horizon, this caravan site is also marvellous for those with an interest in our industrial heritage - there are fascinating museums close by to take you back in time.

There is so much to do around the site from visiting The Transport Museum (open weekends and most Bank Holidays) which is adjacent to the caravan park to getting a bite to eat or visiting Cadbury World. A mere ten minute walk will take you to Becketts Farm Shop which includes a restaurant serving hearty meals. Chapel Lane Club Site is also only 13 miles away from the NEC in Birmingham, hosting some of the UK's best-loved events such as the Caravan and Motorhome Show.

Facilities include a small dog walk on site (longer dog walks nearby) and a bus stop within 50 metres.

Great site near the NEC

I have stayed here on a number of occasions. Really good for the NEC. Easy to find. Good dog walk and further dog walks just outside site. Farm shop nearby (walking distance). Sainsbury’s a short drive away. Friendly staff. Lean shower blocks that are nice and warm with plenty of hot water. I will be here again and again and again!

Large good site

We find the site very handy for stopovers or meeting family. The younger wardens are very helpful and friendly. We have used the site three times twice in summer and now in late autumn and it has always been hardly a fifth full. The site is very well kept and with luck the new boiler is up and running. We do find it strange that the CMC do keep the site open in winter while busy sites in the NE are closed !

Great location, very clean and tidy

Firstly, for some reason there are a few people questioning the friendliness of the wardens. Well, we found them to be very friendly and helpful. In fact, when there was a delay in getting our car repaired, the Head Warden said we could stay on the site until 4pm if need be. We also saw him helping our neighbour with his caravan. Anyway, the site is very easy to find, not far off J3 of the M42, with easy access in all directions to tourist locations. Yes, one toilet block was still out of action, but the other one (actually more central) was spotless. There is a play area and small dog walk area. Just up the road is not only the popular Becketts Farm Shop and restaurant, but also a golf shop and driving range. We will certainly return.

Quick overnight stop on the way to North Yorkshire

Very handy location just off the M42 and easy to get to. Large pitches and lots of hard standing makes it easier for those just stopping over night. One shower block was closed but as the site was only 30% full not an issue but something that needs sorting quicker having read previous reviews. Dog walk is just about ok particularly as there were very few dogs around, it’s not big and could easily be improved. My main issue was the price £24 for a very short stay & limited facilities might mean next time I won’t bother & will tackle the journey in one tiring day.

Showing it's age

We came here purposely for the caravan show at the NEC and to also visit the Black Country Museum as this site is ideally situated for both. I knew from reading reviews posted, that one shower block was out of order but was hoping it had been fixed when we got there. It wasn't and we were informed it would not be fixed for a few weeks, why? We were also told by site staff that it was no use complaining to them as they had heard enough. The other shower block, 3 showers for both sexes, was closed from 10am to 11am whilst the out of order block was closed from 11 am until 12pm, why wasn't this timing changed over to allow for the extra use, I'm sure it wouldn't have made much of a problem. Both the site and it's facilities are beginning to show their age. I would have thought that as the site is so well used, an update is long overdue and urgently needed.
