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.

Just spent just over a week here and couldn't fault the staff or site. Despite the toilet block being a little 'tired' it was always spotlessly clean and well maintained. Good access to the surrounding area and although in the middle of everything it is quiet and secluded.

A member in need

A little while ago now (Oct 2018), my wife and I were unfortunate enough to have our son very seriously injured in hospital at the Queen Elizabeth Birmingham. His injuries were severe enough to keep him there for a long time, and we were faced with the prospect of travelling to see him each day from our home in Shropshire. Clearly that was not going to be feasible for very long and we then looked at renting a house nearby but to no avail. Having a motorhome, we approached the site wardens at Chapel Lane and explained the situation to them and asked if there were any spaces for us and the possibility of an extended stay. I don't know what they had to do to accommodate us (I'm pretty sure that they went to some length), but they pulled out all the stops and managed our stay. It was a very dark time for my wife and I, child in critical care in hospital, living miles away and no accommodation nearby. I have the highest regard for the Warden and his partner and the deputy wardens at the time for their empathy towards us and taking away a huge weight off our minds during a very difficult period. The site is absolutely ideal for access to the city of Birmingham and it's attractions and is expertly maintained, great dog walking just off site, plus a fab chippy in the nearby village. Highly recommended! Do say hello to them and give them our warmest regards, you'll find them very friendly and knowledgeable, a credit to the club indeed.

Restful, welcoming and well-located.

We've thought about coming to this site for our long weekend season launch for so many years but always let other options take priority. They won't anymore. So well located in terms of the major routes from the north, south, east and west it is ideal for that quick 2-3 hour max travel time, particularly when you're only away for 3 nights. Yet despite the proximity to the motorways and trunk roads, an air of calm pervades. If you do become aware of the distant hum, it merely serves to contrast against the peace and certainly didn't drown out the bird song. Wardens, like so many, exemplary. Friendly, welcoming, efficient so just the ticket. Two loo blocks always assists with those lazy Sunday mornings with no need to clock watch in case you get caught short. And as for the comments about need of upgrade, I prefer to use retro to describe rather than the more negatively associated dated. After all they were clean, warm and the showers were powerful enough and hot enough. Everything else is just window dressing surely. Located so closely to Birmingham with its plentiful things to do, certainly more than we had time to take in. Didn't have enough time even to test the walks to the local pubs so I guess we'll just have to leave that for next time. We'll be back!

Good for access to the NEC

Lovely clean site and very welcoming. Small dog walk on site which is good HOWEVER it is not secure. The end of the dog walk leads to some double gates but to the left of this is a run down fence leading to a field which the dogs could easily escape into. The problem is that this field also has a very basic two wire fence to a very busy main road. Would it be possible to secure the end of the dog walk so that we can let our dogs run free ??
