Another great stopover stay

We stayed on this site on the way back from 13 nights in Devon in September. I would have posted a review earlier but the CC website was down. So, this is late but still relevant. We've use this site several times now - and will continue to do so. In this case it was a great stop-over from Devon back home to Yorkshire. Clean, efficient, with welcoming and friendly wardens. Pitched quickly and easily. The site responds well to stop-overs - but is also a great base for visiting the area because of its location. Since we found this gem of a site we've recommended it to so many folk who are now enjoying it too.

Used as night halt in transit to South Wales.

We stayed for just one night en route to Wales and found the site as we had experienced it several times in the past to be very satisfactory and well up to the standards of CAMC sites. This time we were lucky to find a pitch where we were able to stay hooked up as our outfit is quite short, we will remember this pitch number in future for night halts, The only fly in the ointment was that the facilities block became inches deep in water at about 21-00. We are not sure if this was a blocked w,c. or a particularly messy showering member, and left a phone message on the voicemail as we were leaving early. When the club is refurbishing blocks or building new ones, it may be worth considering seperate access doors to W.c.s from the rest of the block.

Pleasant surprise

Booked this site as we were struggling to get a full week anywhere. What a surprise so rural and such a nice site with walks and no idea that you are so close to Birmingham. Friendly wardens will definitely be back

We have just made our first visit to this site. We selected it to give us a stopover after a visit to South Wales. We really enjoyed the site. It is so convenient to the motorway network and close to local shops and amenities. Despite being so close to the motorways there was little traffic noise. The Farm Shop and restaurant close to the site was a great find. As was a visit to the Transport Musuem next to the site. The trip to the Musuem included a bus ride around the area. The site is very well maintained and the wardens are very welcoming and friendly. As the site has two toilet blocks we never had to queue to use the facilities. We will certainly return and hope to spend more time at the site on our next visit.

Excellent location, nice clean site, friendly staff

We stayed last year and have just returned from a couple of nights at Chapel Lane. Staff very welcoming and friendly, the site is clean and well maintained. The Toilet/Shower Block was very clean and had no hesitation in using. Site is located next to the Wythall Bus Museum, which is a must-see - excellent museum. Site location is great for exploring the area, and there are a number of walks around the site.

Staff 100%, Cleanliness and Convenience 100%, Charisma - None.

This is a very clean site with good-sized pitches and manages to give a very rural feel despite being on the fringes of the Birmingham conurbation. It is also very convenient for motorways and major roads. The lady who handled the check-in was very jolly, friendly and efficient, and made the experience a pleasure. Was also very glad to find those two essentials to the travelling Bit, biscuits and ice cream, on sale. The plots were good sized, and the connections on my serviced pitch clean and in good condition. Did not want to use the shower and toilets due to COVID-19 so can't comment directly, but fellow campers reported that they were both good and very clean. There was a little distant traffic noise at night, but it was not enough to disturb sleep and the general feeling was peaceful. Like many Club sites Chapel Lane has all the charisma of an estate of suburban semis. If that's what you like then this site will suit you. I was taking my van to a dealer nearby for warranty service so it was fine, but it's not somewhere that I'd visit for the pleasure of the site itself.

Warm welcome, should be more than a stopover. Will return

We had booked this as a stopover on our way back from the Lakes but will come back for a longer break. A lovely warm welcome greeted us and the pitch sizes were a Lovely surprise. Both shower blocks were clean and the grounds were spotless. So much to do in the area too. Great Chinese down the road too!

Cleanliness Left a Lot To Be Desired

We have stayed at this site on a regular basis for the last few years and have always been impressed with the sites cleanliness. We stayed post Covid for a week, the site was busy and social distancing rules were in place for access to the shower block. I found that the toilet block was not always clean. On two occasions during the week I found one toilet blocked, no toilet roll in two of the cubicles. Also the third toilet cubicle had been opened as had the third shower cubicle. I assumed that one of the campers had done this to access some toilet roll or simply didn't want to wait their turn. Also someone had opened the third shower which rendered the social distancing rules useless .The shower blocks were cleaned in the morning but I didn't see any evidence of any further cleaning. If the showers and toilets are going to be partly closed they need to be checked and cleaned more regularly. The other parts of our stay were of the usual high standards, and this is a very convenient site for visiting Birmingham and the surrounding areas especially with the nearby public transport links..
