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.

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.

Excellent site for visiting NEC and Birmingham

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!

Good to visit Birmingham

Visited here for three nights last week. Tidiness of site and cleanliness of facilities of usual high Club standard. Facilities block we used nice & warm. Wardens pleasant & helpful. We went to Birmingham one day. We are motorhomers so couldnt use the park & ride at Whitlocks end (there is a height barrier), so got a taxi from the site to station & same on return (£6-£7). Trains are every 20 mins from Whitlocks End. Wythall station is nearer but trains only every hour. We wanted to visit the Staffordshire Hoard & visit the canals - both of which we did. The bus from outside the site is every hour and takes a circuitous route to Solihull. It does call at both Wythall & Whitlocks End, but takes its time getting there. Having bus passes, we decided to take the bus to Solihull on one day - we wern't sure what to expect, but it is a pleasant, compact shopping centre. There is an open High Street and an under cover shopping centre. Lots of big names - John Lewis, M & S, Waterstones, Lakeland, Hotter etc etc and a few independents. We didnt intend to shop - but we did! There is a small bit of Old Solihull at the end of the High Street near the church. Bus journey took about an hour but if you are interested in suburban & rural housing and like bus journeys it was quite interesting. If you want to go to a supermarket by bus, there is a big Sainsburys at Maypole - about 20 mins along the bus route. Having only had the motorhome this year (caravanners before) this was the first drive over waste point we had used - so much better then lifting manholes! A bit of road noise, but nothing to trouble our sleep. Awning pitches are on gravel & have grass in between - so no expanse of tarmac. A convenient site which we would be happy to revisit.

A very handy site which offers more peace and quiet than you expect!

We have been to this site before, and found it not only convenient but also peaceful and quiet. It is close to J3 on the M42 but it is always surprisingly quiet and peaceful. There is occasionally some very faint traffic noise in the distance but the birdsong is closer and louder so its not a problem. Our visit in early November found us right next to a MASSIVE firework display about which we knew nothing until it started, so it wasn't quite as calm as usual in the evening, but the spectacular display was worth the compromise. In line with most C&M sites, this one is clean and well managed. Its staff are friendly and welcoming too, always a plus when you've had a long and arduous journey to get to the site. The only negative I can offer was the size of the breakfasts we ordered at the close-by Becketts Farm shop. There's 10% discount when you show your membership card, offering good value in the shop which is wonderfully stocked and the restaurant which serves great food. The breakfast is MASSIVE such that we could scarcely move after eating it! Not such a bad negative really, but check the size of the portion before you order if you can!
