"A tranquil campsite retreat in the Midlands."
A campsite set in a peaceful valley and surrounded by wonderful views, it is hard to believe our Clent Hills Club Site is only 15 miles from Birmingham city centre. It is a lovely place to take a breather, or explore the West Midlands or the surrounding counties such as Worcestershire on a longer holiday.

Pure peace and tranquility, a delightful site.

If you are looking for peace and tranquility, THIS is the site to visit. So beautiful and yet so near to Halesowen, Kidderminster, Birmingham. It actually felt like we were in Devon (BUT WITHOUT THE TRAVELLING from where we live) Toilets were spotless. Nice hot showers and VERY welcoming wardens. We will certainly be visiting again ASAP. Enjoy......

Phoned the site from a motorway service area whilst travelling home from the Lake District and despite being busy due to it being Easter and a bit snowbound the friendly staff found us a hardstanding for one night, the site is in a pleasant hilly location and as the site description says you wouldn't tell that you only a few miles from Birmingham, the facilities were a bit chilly but this isn't an all year site and you don't normally get snow at easter! they however were spotlessly clean. We enjoyed our brief stop at Clent Hills and are considering a longer stop next time we are travelling north.

We're a new young couple to caravanning and this was only our 3rd camp site, we received a lovely warm welcome, the snow was bad so made it very slippery but the staff gritted daily. Would come back as it was spacious and very quiet, the toilet and shower block was a bit cold but the weather did not help. Very clean.
SUITABLE FOR: Older couples,Peaceful break
This site is in the country and very pretty area. Of all the Club sites that we have visited, this is the first one that we have found to be unfriendly. The wardens did not give us any information about the area and seemed to be 'put out' when asked. We were given a pitch and no other information about the toilets, etc. The toilets and showers were clean. If there is rain the site is very wet. We asked for access to the internet and were placed on a pitch as far away from the signal as possible, even though other sites were closer that were not in use. We would use other camp sites in the area before going back to this site.
DATE STAYED: October 2012
Just returned home after a week at Clent Hills in a tent (only cos caravan broke) Wardens friendly and healpful. It did nothing but rain and windy for the whole week, pitched under trees, kept on raining even when stopped raining. toilets were clean even with all the mud trampled in, cant understand why have outer doors with slats it and heaters near to doors so heat just goes straight out the door and wind blows in!!!!!!! so not very warm in toilet block!! It was my second stay at Clent Hills, lots to see and do round about, Cadbury World, Safari Park, Black County Museum to name but a few, will go back next year, but not in tent.
For anyone new to caravaning choosing a local site was crucial to build up our experience. Clent Hills was chosen as our first trip. On arriving to the site we were met by Peter and his colleagues. They were most helpful and patient, and gave some invaluable advice to the new caravaners. The site was clean and tidy and located in a lovely part of Worcestershire. The pitch was slightly on a slope but our neighbours helped us with the levelling and set up of the caravan. We couldn't wish for anything better for our first trip and will certainly visit again.

The staff were most helpful and friendly and extremely accomodating with their knowledge and advice to complete caravan touring novices. The site was friendly and we enjoyed our first trip with our new caravan. Will definately visit again.
We appreciated very much the help of the staff in finding a new camping for us near Cambridge because of the very busy period of the bankholidays.Reason was the celebration of the Queens 60th year celebration activities.

Fantastic site, very helpful and friendly, it rained most of the week but my 5 year one loved it and the staff were great with her, the site was. Ery clean and well maintained. If I had to find a fault with the site it would be the play area is a little small, other than that perfect getaway
SUITABLE FOR: Families,Groups
This is quite local to us, but this was our first visit. The access road is quite narrow, so make sure you arrive at the specified time, or later, as you don't want to meet someone coming the other way.
Once there, we were met by Peter, who was very friendly, and showed us to our pitch. The pitch was grass, and on a slight slope, so be warned to take packing. However, even though it was lashing with rain, we managed to get set up without drama, with the hook-up being close, and not too far to get the water.
The site is very peaceful, and we enjoyed excellent sleep. There is plenty to see, round and about, and once back at the site, everyone was friendly. For the first time, we had taken the lap-top, and enjoyed the wi-fi.
All in all, a very good site, and we shall definately go again.
SUITABLE FOR: Families,Peaceful break
This site is only 10 minutes from the M5 but it is so secluded you really could be in the middle of nowhere. Outstanding walks nearby (5-10 minute drive) on Clent Hills, Walton Hill, Waseley Hills and Lickeys hills. Pitch is spotless and quiet.
Only downside is toilet block closed 10.30am-12 midday which was a pain. We were meant to use the disabled loo but a lady was in there showering which menat lots of discomfort. I imagine there must be regulations about not cleaning loos when people are using them but when you have no other loos this is a real problem.
Firstly I store my caravan here although I think the cost is over priced for what you get a rough patch of ground on a slop. Also I can only get at my caravan when a warden is about and no access at all during winter so I will be look elsewhere soon.
So the site not a bad site bit undulating so may need those blocks to get level.
Staff seemed ok to me and the toilet block is good.
I booked a hard standing BUT the gravel surface they use is HORRIBLE totally unsuitable if you want to use an awning. It is made up of irregular sized sharp stones which need hob nail boots to walk on so stick to grass although these are mostly sloping.

We arrived to lovely welcoming warden who showed us to our pitch once we had booked in. The site is very clean and well presented the amenities are good, toilets and showers and changing rooms and also washing and a dishwashing area. Wi-Fi is available for an additional charge and there is also a small selection of foods, icecream, cold drinks and essentials that you may need. There is also an information area where You can get details on the local attractions in the area and you can also purchase a map which shows the local walks in the area. We visited The Vine Inn for a meal which was absolutely lovely and would recommend. You do need transport to visit local attractions and get about if you are not a keen walker as the beauty of the site is that it is in a peaceful location. The dog walk is very sure short along the narrow winding lane that leads up to the camp site although you are in an area where there are plenty of walks if you like to get out and about. The site does slope and may prove problems in bad weather however we had a glorious weekend and the pitch we was allocated was fine the site itself is rather uneven in places and may cause problems for certain units or for tents if you're not actually pitched on a flat area. Most of the pitches were taken by couples although there was a few families with young children and they seemed to be enjoying ball games around thier pitches there is also a small wooded play area for the children to enjoy. Overall we personally had a lovely weekend and would definitely go back here again for a short break as the site is very local to our home address although when we are there we feel like we are 1,000,000 miles away :)))))
We turned up on this site and there had been a lot of rain the week before. We got shown to our pitch which when we have booked had asked for a pitch near the play park which it was but there was a hedge behind where the caravan was put and so we could not see anything. We did have a walk around and there were pitches nearer which weren't taken. When we had got shown to the pitch the warden had said the next pitch had been boggy and then asked us to move up a bit with the caravan and so hence the car was in the boggy part so when we unhooked the caravan and tried to move the car we got stuck so had to get the wardens to help and get us out. We had a enjoyable weekend but this is not our fist choice of camp to go to.
We'd booked at Wolverley but the site wasn't ready due to contractor delays in winter upgrade. Club customer services offered money back or another site booking with discount for inconvenience which I thought was pretty good. Only site available nearby was Clent Hills which is rated quite highly. But only pitches available with hook up were on a slope, I was warned in advance.
Good welcome, nice tidy site, great views. Pitch was certainly on a slope, even after using my own levelling ramps and some broken paving slabs from the nearby pile I couldn't level fully so we spent the stay rolling downhill, us not the unit!
A good site, 6 miles from Stourbridge, just take care about the sloping pitches.

My Wife and I stayed at Clent Hills during October 2011. Beautiful secluded site with some lovely walks right from the Site. The Site has quite a narrow lane leading into the Site, but his aside, it is very clean, very tidy, toilets good/clean, showers good/clean. Only down comment I would make is that there is no a great deal of light on the Site at night. You will need a torch. We have a dog and we love the walks. Without doubt we will use this Site again.
DATE STAYED: October 2011
this site was clean and tidy had a great stay there apart from the attitude off the word-dens when we arrived we had driven all night from scotland and arrived at 10am to be walked past by the 3 word-dens and when they let us bookin at 11.30 we were told that the bookin time was 12.00. when i booked this site i said i was driving down south at night and would be there early? the last word the head word-den said to me was ??i was lucky i had not meet any cars or vans coming out off the site as i would have had to back up round a bad bend at the top of the lane
MEMBER FOUND TOWING: Difficult
We arrived at Clent Hills with not an ounce of Caravaning experience.
First ever caravan with 3 youngsters in tow.
we arrived in one piece and parked in space allocated for new arrivals.
We were greeted with a friendly smile and very easy book in. We were led to our pitch by a very pleasent gentleman who walked in front of us.
He pointed out where to Hook Up and showed us where the toilets/showers and waste disposal unit was and then with a wave he was gone.
what do we do first????
Hook up electric and get the laptop on with a dvd for the 3 kids to watch whilst Mum and Dad put up the awning.
As there was'nt many people at site we didnt feel any panic as we erected the awning and unloaded the car.
it took about an hour to get water,set up grey water carrier and fill the cassette toilet.
For our first time it was bliss, the place was beautifully quiet(when our lot were asleep)and the setting and surrounding were excellent.
We went to Kidderminster to go swimming at there Waterpark on 2nd day and and stopped off at the chippy on the way back to the park.
3rd day went to West Midland Safari park at Bewdley, this was a great day but very very expensive....
4th day it poured with rain and we'd planned to go up the local Romsley hill but the weather was to poor.
We packed up a couple of hours earlier than we had planned and left the site.
We have a Landrover so were not worried about the rain but a few people were worried about getting up onto the service road with there vehicles. I think that going anywhere in Britain in late October is risking a rainy few days so i cant complain about site getting a bit damp.
We will come back here next year for a few nights as its very local to us and very friendly and clean place.
I think the people who run this site can be very proud in what they have here.
Cant wait for the Summer and Caravaning again.
Very new ot the club and this club site was fantastic. The wardens were so friendly and helpful. The whole place was lovely some really nice walks and woods nearby the kids loved it. We enjoyed this break so much my parents have now joined the club!! can not wait to go back.
DATE STAYED: July 2011
We used this site for an overnight stop on route to South Wales and found the directions easy to follow from Junction 3 of the M5 .
The Wardens were really friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble .
The site location in the Clent Hills is lovely and the surrounding countryside has some good walks .
We will certainly use this site again
Clent Hills is a beautiful site. You could be anywhere. All you can see is rolling hills and trees - no road noise; truly peaceful. It's only 15 mnutes from where we live, but it's a small heaven on earth.
The welcome was friendly and very helpful, with a choice of pitches. We are totally novice caravan owners and were assured by the management and staff that we could just ask for help if we needed it. Indeed, I did and Peter went that extra mile to ensure we were safely hooked up and on our way.
The site itself is very clean and tidy and facilities excellent. The pitches are spacious and the views stunning. We shall be going back very soon.
I have just spent a very pleasant 3 weeks at this site. I drove over from Germany where I have lived for 33 years.
Wardens very friendly and helpful, always had time to listen. I would like to thank Sue, Katherine, Andy and last but not least Peter, who had the pleasure of getting up at 03:30am to stop a disturbance. It was no problem and was sorted out with a few stern words. Thankyou for that Peter. The site is beautifully laid out and as I was at the top of the field on a slope I had a wonderful view. Took a day to get used to sleeping downhill! The site is well kept, clean, grass kept short plenty of young trees, and the flowers arrangements around the entrance were a picture. I was not fortunate to be able to call my visit a holiday, an illness in my family made it necessary to spend most of my daytime in a hospital. Regardless it was wonderful to return, late afternoon, to the breathtaking Clent Hills views from my tent.
Thank you all again for a exceptional site I hope to visit you again one day.
Used the site as a base to visit Kenilworth Castle and Stratford - on - Avon amongst other attractions.
Greeting was warm and friendly and once the formalities had been completed I was shown to my pitch and had the position of the facilities and local shops/restaurants explained to me.
Site was 3/4 full but didn't have to queue for showers and was pleased with the cleanliness of the facilities.
Half the site is on a slight slope but pitches at the foot of the hill are flat. Hedgerows and the sites natural position kept me out of any string wind and although it was raining when I arrived the site seemed to drain well and quickly
Highly recommend this site.
Just spent 4 days at this site, really impressed with the site and the general quietness. Unfortunately the only thing that spoilt the weekend was an over egotistical warden. My daughter visited us on the Sunday, was told be the warden that as there were no parking spaces left in the car park, to park her car by our van (there was plenty of room, the site was not even half full), I set the Bar B Que up and started to cook lunch the very same warden then came up and told my daughter a space was now available in the car and please move her car. No problem she got into her car and the warden came running to tell her to â€œleave it where it wasâ€ this she did. We sat down for dinner half way through the same warden came back and told her to move her car, â€œnowâ€ he would not listen to reason or allow her to finish her lunch... a very pleasant weekend spoilt by a indecisive jobs-worth

Very friendly welcome when arrived at site. site man helps you to your pitch i would recommend this site to enyone.
Lovely tranquil site, but I would echo the other comments that it gets noisy down near the play park. Yes the ground got soft when it rained, but it dried out quickly. Toilet block was as you would expect from the Camping Club. We would go back to the site.
A little oasis in the overcrowded midlands just a few miles from a busy motorway and so quiet. We explored the local narrow lanes on foot and ended up at Clent Hills cafe. A nice break and cracking egg butties and cake. Also had an evening meal in the "French Hen" in Clent, excellent food and even needed a doggy bag for next days dinner. Some really pleasant local walks if a little hilly in places. The site is mainly sloping but we had no problem with this. Lots of tents on site, they managed with the slopes so no real problem for caravans. Great to see the kids playground being used regularly. Site speed limit is essential and well observed. Facilities are adequate and clean if a little outdated. Staff are really good. It's now on our list of to be re-visited sites.

A nice site in a lovely area. However the site is sloping at the at the top of the site and reversing the unit up against the angle made the clutch work some what. only negative was the dog walk along the access road.
DATE STAYED: April 2011
lovely , well kept site. BIG problem if you pitch near the toilet bloke , all night long you hear the slamming of the toilet door. Really could use a soft closer on it . Apart from that its lovely .
A lovely peaceful site set in beautiful countryside, you would think you were in the sticks when in fact you are only about 10 miles from Dudley! We stayed over a bank holiday weekend, and even though the site was full, the facilities were kept clean and tidy at all times. One word of caution, however: there is a children's playground at the far end of the site, (situated as far away from the warden's van as possible!) and due to it's location it doesn't appear to be supervised by the wardens. There is a one way system on the road that runs round the site (strictly enforced by the warden!) and so, even if your pitch is nowhere near the playground you are forced to drive past it to leave the site. When we did this, we found little children carelessly riding bikes in the road in front of cars, and even babies crawling on the road, with no parents to be seen and no warden's intervention. As a suggestion, perhaps the wardens could routinely stroll round the site, keeping a friendly eye on the children and having a quiet word with the parents when necessary. Apart from this problem it is a friendly and peaceful site and we are looking forward to returning soon.
We used Holding many times back in the 60's plus, and attended many FOL's there.
While back in those days there were only a toilet, (no problem to us), having camped 12 months a year, all over the country, you will not find a site more quiet and beautiful, it is all one should expect with a site like Holding.
We shall be revisiting it shortly now in our latter years except now with a caravan.
Beauiful view, great walks if you wish, quite close to places like Bewdley & Stourport on the river seven.
I cannot imagine why any one would complain ?

Stayed here in September. Stunning views. We were lucky and had two really sunny days. Amenities weren't brilliant, outdated really. Reasonably clean. It was near to everyting we needed to be. In fact a really good central spot for the Worcester and Birmingham. Around 25 mins either way.Clent hills around a mile away are stunning and a lovely walk. Local people are very friendly. I would stay again though/ Good base for the Midlands and use my own facilities in the caravan. Very quiet site and be prepared for the "old uns" just staring....(of which I am nearly there!

This site is in a very good position for a varied holiday. It is near to Birmingham with all it's attractions, there are also several country parks with excellent walking, and the National Trust managed Clent Hills. We have visited twice at Easter time and would return. The site gets a little boggy in places in rainy weather but the facilities are excellent, the only downside being the dogwalk which is along the access road.
DATE STAYED: November 2010
The photographs on the web site are deceptive.
This site is mainly on a slope.
We visited in the autumn when it was raining very heavily.
The site became flooded and very muddy.
We like to use C. & C. sites as a touring base. Almost every journey required a motorway journey. Not good!
The lane into the site is very narrow and in need of repair.
The local pub is good. It looks very uninviting from the outside but inside it is very inviting and the food is quite good. The site guide book is accurate with regard to the local shops.
WE WILL NOT VISIT THIS SITE AGAIN.
