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.
Leave the M42 at junction 3 onto the A435 dual carriageway towards Birmingham. In 1.25 miles at the roundabout turn left into Middle Lane (signposted Headley Heath, Alvechurch). In 150 yards turn left into Chapel Lane. In 300 yards turn right at the church and then immediately right again into site.

We have just had a lovely 7 day site at this site. I had no problems whilst there. The wardens were friendly and helpful, the toilets were spotless, the showers were hot and powerful and the site was kept clean and tidy. As to one of the toilets being "tired", I thought it was absolutely fine. Perhaps having peach tiles with flowers on them made the block tired but to me, the cleanliness and how good the showers work are far more important! I would say that the pitches at the top of the site (pitches 10 to 14) were noticeably noisier than those in the middle and nearer to the reception area due to the nearby adjacent road to Birmingham.The site is well situated to getting out and about. The M42 and M5 nearby allowed us to quickly get to places. The train station at Whitlocks End was a godsend. It is about 3 miles from the site with free parking (it does have a height barrier though) if you buy a train ticket. A ticket to Birmingham was £4.60 return per person. The National Trust Back to Backs property near Moor Street train station was really interesting and well worth a visit. We also went to the Black Country Museum at Dudley which is recommended, especially the trip through the canal tunnels ran by the Dudley Canal Trust. A trip further afield to David Austin Roses at Albrighton was brilliant. The rose gardens were a mass of colour, amazing. Stourport on Severn and Bewdely were both lovely, interesting riverside towns to have a stroll round, as was a walk along the canal and locks at Hatton Locks (amazing scones at the cafe there). We also went for a nice walk up the Clent Hills and visited the Rock Houses at Kinver (both N.T). The fish and chip shop in Wythall village is recommended, the fish was cooked just right. The meal we had at the Coach and Horses at nearby Weatheroak was alright, nice but nothing spectacular. All in all, it was a really nice week.
