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.

Please Note: Birmingham's Clean Air Zone comes into effect from June 2021. Whilst Chapel Lane is not within this zone, we advise members to review Birmingham's Clean Air Zone and check at Gov. UK Clean Air Zone if charges may apply for your vehicle to drive into the city or pass through the zone on your journey to site.

An Odd Site

Chapel Lane Caravan Club Site
This is a large, spacious site which is very easy to access. The wardens were, as usual, excellent, friendly and very efficient. If you have a car there are plenty of places to visit locally and we enjoyed a visit to Packwood House. You can also pop next door to the transport museum but we found this a difficult place to be during a pandemic. There was no social distancing and no mask wearing (even on the free bus); given COVID rates are rising quickly we felt this was unacceptable, clearly you might not! The site itself is large with flat pitches separated by grass. There are quite a lot of non awning pitches on tarmac, separated by planters rather than grass but they have a pleasant outlook. However there is a lot of storage on site which isn’t particularly attractive and there also seems to be some storage on pitches, leaving the impression that people are living on site. One caravan had an extra large gas bottle outside and on at least one pitch there was a large motorhome, a smaller motorhome, a large trailer and a motorbike/ scooter under a cover. The young woman on the pitch next to us decided to wash her caravan by attaching a hose to the drinking tap and leaving the hose running for what felt like hours while she scrubbed with a washing up brush. We also had cars left sitting with the engine running next to us Showers and toilets were fine, apart from having to walk past the open chemical toilet and the open industrial bins to get there! It just didn’t feel like a holiday destination to me and I was uneasy, probably unnecessarily, about the feel of the site.

Large But Tired Site

Chapel Lane Caravan Club Site
Visited Chapel Lane site as an overnight stopover in October 21, the site is large and pitches are well spaced but the site looked tired and in need of a little investment, this probably wasn't helped by the number of older shabby outfits, that appeared to be seasonal bookings, that blighted the landscape. The warden was less than friendly and took Covid safety concerns to a whole new level, which was unfortunate on the guy who booked in before me who had forgotten his mask and, despite only one person being allowed in the office, and the perspex screen on the reception desk, the guy was forced to book in whilst standing outside whilst the warden handed everything from behind the door, the toilet block needed some investment as it was looking very untidy, it was being cleaned whilst we were there but that wasn't enough to make them look good.

Good stop off

Chapel Lane Caravan Club Site
We only stayed for one night on our return from Devon. It is in a great location, not far from the M42 and M5. The site was clean and well maintained, including the toilet and shower facilities. Lots of hot water in the morning. The pitches were good and level. We found it could be good for a future few nights away now we know all the places to visit that are in the area.
