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 West Midlands 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.

Short stay to visit the NEC

We only stayed one night to visit the camping, caravan and motorhome show at the NEC. All the staff I spoke to were really friendly and helpful. The shower blocks were very clean. This site was very busy because of the show but it was very peaceful. Unfortunately we had terrible weather with very strong winds and rain all night but it didn't spoil our weekend. Will definately be returning here.

Weekend trip to Birmingham

This was a our first visit to Chapel Lane as we had wanted to go to the National Trust 'Back to Back' tour in Birmingham and also the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull. Just off the M42, this site I'm sure would suit people travelling either North or South as a stopover, as we stayed 2 nights and that was probably the max we would do here. The site is flat, however there was a lot of open space tarmac areas, which didn't make it feel particularly special or homely. To be fair, going in January meant there was very little greenery around to offset what could be mistaken as a car park, so we probably didn't see it at its best. The warden was very welcoming and helpful on our arrival, however she informed us that in one of the two toilet blocks the heating wasn't working. So, as you can imagine, most of the visitors pitched next to the one that was heated, as we indeed did. Facilities were OK and clean, if a little dated. 15m walk to Wythal Village Hall to catch bus into Birmingham that runs every hour. Nearest proper pub is approx. a 25m walk away. I would stay again if I had something specific organised in Birmingham or the NEC, but for anything else, not really

So helpful!

This was not a holiday. Our son was having surgery at the Orthopaedic Hospital 15-20 minutes away. I booked and then called the site to explain the situation and they were incredibly helpful right from the start. They allowed us to add and subtract the number of people staying and cars parking, as family members came up from Cornwall. Over a two week span extended our stay a few days at a time to fit in with the hospital and they also allowed us (it was December) to stay a few hours past the usual leave time and pulled out at 4pm when the hospital had discharged our son. Lovely friendly people-Thank you, for making this part of out trip so simple and worry free. xx

Excellent stopover

This site is an excellent stopover and is surprisingly pleasant, however I do have a couple of major gripes. A motorhome is probably in most cases the second most expensive item someone will buy, once you have it you want to take care of it to get the best value you can from your investment. Unfortunately when you take your expensive vehicle to Chapel Lane and select a hard standing pitch you are on a surface that is made up of tarmac and a covering of fine black grit that no matter how much care you take will end up inside your van and imbedded into your lovely carpets. Not only is this annoying it will damage your carpets and make them dirty. My second gripe is the lack of maintenance in the toilet blocks, little things like missing coat hooks in the cubicles, damaged tiles and an overall appearance of being in urgent need of a refurbishment.

Well maintained site in very convenient location. There is a farm shop close to the site which also has a restaurant / cafe and a very quirky bar!
