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.

Very Convenient

A very convenient 5 minute detour from M42J3, or at least it will be once the pesky roadworks have finished. Nothing more to add to what other reviewers have said about this site being handy as a stop-over &/or good base for the NEC. - its all true. Pro's: Clean, well managed, great wardens (they found my dog peg that I left behind which I subsequently picked up on a later visit the next week), easy access, 50% mid week discounts, very good Info hut, good herb garden, good WiFi reception (at least for Three), ditto for TV etc. Con's The large tarmac area is less than pretty and feels like a car-park The key fob deposit box is outside reception so when leaving you have to get out of your vehicle.

Fantastic Stopover

Booked here for the NEC Motorhome & Caravan Show. Great welcome from very friendly wardens. Just a short distance from the M42, bit of roadworks at the roundabout off the M42 but no real delays. Becketts Farm is just brilliant for food shopping and of course the restaurant, My Faithful all Day Breakfast is a must, other meals are available! Will be using Chapel Lane a lot more in future as a stopover for a couple of days on our trips up North. Just a warning for next year getting to and from the NEC on the first day (Club Day) was so busy on the motorway, 2 miles from the exit we hit the stationary traffic so stayed in the inside lane as we were off at next junction. All other lanes seemed to move but ours. At NEC exit inside and first lanes both go off to the NEC, therefore don't stay in the inside lane move out to the next lane it's much quicker!!! Again when leaving NEC there was stationary traffic going south on M42 so we diverted through Solihull to get to Chapel Lane. Pretty route bit busy but at least we kept moving and was worth it.

Just a stop over

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our current tour. As a site I would say it is OK. Personally I did not like the large, featureless tarmac area as it remined me of a truckstop. The facilities are perfectly good and spotlessly clean. There were very few people on the site when we stayed so perhaps it lacked a little atmosphere (nobody's fault of course) I did incur the wrath of the Chief Warder for breaching his one-way system to empty my offside mounted grey tank (my bad). Perhaps thats why we see so many people emptying tanks on the road. All in all, no complaints butnot a favourite

Fantastic stop over

We have stayed at Chapel Lane numerous times as a stop over on our way to the south coast. For us it is the perfect mid way point, The site is fabulous as it is consistently good in all aspects. Wardens are excellent and helpful, site always clean and well maintained. WE always use a serviced pitch, however when we do use the toilet/shower blocks they are always perfect. WE will be back again soon.
