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.

Very disappointing experience!

We too had contact with the "very unfriendly lady" mentioned in another review. Unfortunately, our car broke down half an hour after setting off for Chapel Lane. The car needed a new part and so we were unable to set off until 4 o'clock the following day. We had rung the site on the day we broke down and spoke to a very understanding gentleman. We said that we would keep the site informed and so we rang again just as we were setting off. This time the said lady answered the phone and we couldn't believe her attitude. We were told not to bother setting off if we couldn't guarantee arriving before 8 and that if we were late there might not be a pitch available for us! She also told us to book another site nearer our home instead! We were stressed enough without this! As it was, we arrived just after 7 only to find a late night arrivals area and lots of empty pitches! In 10 years of membership and having visited many, many sites, we have never come across such an unhelpful warden before.

Well used popular site.

Very well situated for members with long journeys,being close to the M42 but far enough away to be peaceful if you pick a pitch closer to the caravan storage area. One toilet block needs updating, but no reason for several Wcs and showers to be closed off with a bar while we were there last. Also some floor grouting badly needs redoing for hygene sake. Other block is fine and both are kept clean by the hard working Wardens. Wife loves Becketts being close by, lovely wholesome food to eat and take away. A regular stop for us as our Daughter lives close by.

Town and Country

Super spot, enjoyed it so much a few years ago when we just used it as a stopover that we returned to stay for a week. Did not disappoint, superb dog walk next to the site, and an adequate run on site. Nice and close to all the local amenities, and an easy drive into Birmingham city centre. Lovely wardens, I'd messed up our booking and they were very kind and helpful.

Weekend retreat

We visited the site over the bank holiday weekend from Saturday to Monday. We were late booking so felt lucky to get in. The site itself was very clean and tidy, the shower block was lovely too. It was little expensive for the situation and the facilities offered as it is essentially a stop over site. Such a pity I was greeted by a very unfriendly lady who made me feel very uncomfortable with every response. I was told to choose a pitch and then go back and give her the plot number before getting the barrier card. There were not many pitches left so we chose one at the back which backed onto a very busy noisey road. I didn’t go straight back to the office because I was getting sorted and rang her to give her the pitch number but was told that I needed to go back to the office or I would not be able to get out of the site until I had the card. Again another very unfriendly conversation. All in all not a great experience and we would never return it ruined our weekend. Customer service is paramount in this business we know we run holiday lets ourselves!

Lovely Overnight Stay

Stayed here for one night as we had to go to Birmingham to pick something up. Excellent location just off the motorway, very well looked after site, with good amenities , even the site office had a nice stock of sweets and goodies ! It was quite busy when we stayed , with a lot of children riding about but didn't bother us , nice to see a bit of life going on ! Wardens very helpful and very well signposted around the site , good information point with lots of local information on hand. Toilet block kept very clean .and nice powerful showers. We had our dog with us , the dog walking on site is quite small , but thats not a problem as there are lovely long walks just outside the site , info on these in the information point . Great setting very close to main routes and Birmingham , will definitely be returning.
