Chapel Lane Caravan Club Site, Wythall, Birmingham, B47 6JX, Tel 01564826483

To Find Site:- Leave M42 at junction 3 and take A435 towards Birmingham. In about 2kms turn left at roundabout into Middle Lane signed for Headley Heath and Alvechurch. In about 150m turn left into Chapel Lane and just before church turn right and right again. The site is well signed with 'Caravan Site' signs.

Chapel Lane is conveniently situated just south of Birmingham for those wanting to visit the City or perhaps the NEC. Being fairly near to the motorway system it also makes a good night halt to break a longer journey. The site is open all year and non-members are welcome. There are around 120 pitches the majority on chipped hardstandings but there are also a small number of grass pitches. Perhaps unusual for a Club site there are a number of non-awning pitches on solid tarmac. We did notice that after heavy rainfall that some pitches seem to hold water. As to be expected electric points, rated at 16 amps, are conveniently placed to all pitches and the bollards also have a co-ax TV connection although you have to provide your own cable. Water/waste/chemical disposal points are dotted around the site. There is one central motorhome waste/refilling point with ample room for large motorhomes. Unfortunately the grey water drains still require the lifting of drain covers to allow access. There are two toilet blocks which are of the usual Club high standard. Each block has an enclosed dish wash area but with a limited number of sinks. There is a small information room with details of local attractions and places nearby to eat out. Reception sell a few essentials and newspapers can be ordered. For children there is a small adventure style playground. There is site  wide WiFi access and time can be purchased online. The site also has a caravan/motorhome storage facility. The site has a small dog walk and reception can provide details of longer walks from the site. However campers are requested not to walk their dogs around the adjacent Park Home estate.

Next to the site is the Transport Museum with its extensive collection of buses. It is not open all the time and best to check opening times with their website. A ten minute walk from the site is Becketts Farm Shop which seems to be a bit of an institution in the area. Apart from selling farm foods it also has a good value restaurant and a small coffee shop. Most of the large supermarkets are represented within driving distance of the site and there are details of their location in the information room. Bus services are available from near to the site but some involve negotiating a busy main road. An alternative idea would be to take a taxi to a local station.
