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.

Lack of Atmosphere

Excellent site for travelling into Birmingham and situated in a nice area. Showers and toilets were spotless. We were here for the New Year period but unfortunately the site lacked atmosphere for the time of year. The wardens did say that a few years ago there had been access to a suitable room for a New Year party, but unfortunately this was no longer available, which is a shame. To be fair to the wardens they did advertise a small gathering in the afternoon of New Year's Eve but we couldn't make the time. We would use this site again when visiting Birmingham.

Good site would return

Site very easy to find. We found staff very helpful as after reading some of the reviews were wondering what we would find. Pitch good size and no problem parking up. Yes one shower block had no heating but showers were working but the other which was nearer was fine. Four showers in ladies and really clean, hot water and warm in there as well. No complaints. For us as we wanted to visit Birmingham it was a good distance and didn't take long. Stayed five nights and would return again. Must add the road noise was non existent but did ask where best pitch would be so not to hear it and was more than happy so slept well. We were there over New Year and fireworks in the distance were lovely.

Little Disappointed

On arrival and booking in, guy on desk read out our booking, "2 adults and 1 child eewwwweee"! or words to this affect. Is this not a family site? Double checked and yes, so why this comment. In general a good site but too much "gravel" for us. Very little grasses area and the children's area roped off. Don't think we'll be using it again. Sorry Chapel Lanes.

Chapel lane site review.

Great site, great staff, so well placed for visits to Birmingham and surrounding area. First class pitches, good clean toilets, showers, plenty of room to relax. Just made our second visit in 6 weeks ( Birmingham Christmas market ) well worth while. We will be back next year. Thanks all staff.

Great site for the Birmingham Tattoo at the NEC

Stayed this weekend and had a lovely and helpful reception. We attended the Tattoo as ex-services association standard bearers on the Saturday and Sunday only to return to find the MoHo had a flat tyre. Called Britania Rescue on Monday morning to get the spare fitted. It is a 3.5t vehicle and at 81 - no way. Mobile reception not good and despite the office being closed and toilet cleaning in full flow, Peter opened up and allowed me to use the landline. He also reassured us that there was not a problem about leaving on time even though it was going to be a while before the mechanic would arrive. When he did arrive it was quickly sorted and we were finally on our way. Our grateful thanks to Peter and the team and God willing we will be back next year for the Tattoo.
