Tranquillity close to the heart of England on a campsite in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This Club campsite sits on the edge of one the Midlands’ most popular beauty spots, Cannock Chase. A combination of natural deciduous woodland, coniferous plantations and open heathland the Chase – England’s smallest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – offers boundless adventure and fun for walkers, mountain bikers and dog lovers alike and is perfectly located for exploring the attractions of Cannock, Lichfield, Birmingham and the surrounding area.

Our pretty campsite here is well laid out and bordered by trees. It offers level hardstanding pitches, while grass pitches tend to be sloping. In addition to showers and toilets, the site offers washing up facilities, a site shop offering basic provisions and a family room and there is direct access from the site onto the Chase.

The Chase is definitely the big appeal of this site. As well as its bountiful wildlife, it offers endless walking and miles of exhilarating mountain bike trails, including the famous Follow the Dog trail and new Monkey Trail, which start from Birches Valley Forest Centre.

If you'd like to go glamping then Cannock Chase Ready Camp is the perfect choice. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

We have just returned from camping with two small children.

This review is for Cannock Chase

We have just returned from camping with two small children. The site was perfect as everything was immaculately clean and maintained to an excellent standard. The staff were extremely helpful (especially as our tent leaked and soaked everything). Staff were really friendly and even across to see if we needed any help! The staff were available at all times (even into the evening)! Both ladies that work on the site were especially fantastic (as were all staff). The showers and toilets were immaculate and the park was great for the kids. I would certainly recommend this site to family and friends and we will definitely be returning.

I have recently returned from Cannock Chase and can only describe my stay as disappointing.

This review is for Cannock Chase

I have recently returned from Cannock Chase and can only describe my stay as disappointing. We had two caravans and one tent. The welcome was great and were allowed to pick our own pitch. The facilities are good, however expect to have no WiFi signal and zero phone reception (even if your phone is incredible). Overall my stay was enjoyable due to my family making it a good trip as any family would do, however This is where my disappointment comes in. In our party of 12, 6 of them were children, ranging from 3 years old to 15. It said no ball games on the website, however this practically meant any games in general and we were unable to play anything as a family. we decided to play every childs favourite game, hide and seek. An hour of playing, staff who I wont name approached our group and rudely informed us that we should stop playing at once. Of course I agree that any unsociable behaviour should stop as everyone has paid to be there and are there for different holiday expectations, however, a couple of adults and children playing hide and seek would to me be a fantastic way of enjoying a family holiday in summer holidays! The way our party was spoken to was as though we were actively going around caravans and stealing items from within it and shouting in peoples awnings to wake them up! Nobody likes being in a place where rowdy children are an issue, however I am sure a 3 year to a 15 year old playing hide and seek wont hurt anybody and sadly ruined a break. This was the first time the 3 year old child had ever played such a game and sadly was ruined by the rude staff member. Overall our trip was good. But that is due to the location Mainly. If you want a peaceful break then it is amazing! Anything else... prepare to sit and talk only!! I would reccomend this site to others but if I was offered my money back, I would take it and not likely return.

This review is for Cannock Chase

Great welcome from the lady at reception, very helpful, helped with pitch selection, advised on facilities, local attractions etc. Site was clean and tidy, staff were efficient and friendly. The site itself is on a fairly busy road and there is some road noise at peak times but not overly noticeable. Our pitch was at the roadside but we sat outside all day and evening without the traffic causing any issues. Our dogs loved exploring the woods and we spent many hours strolling there. The Chase is fantastic for mountain biking and I can fully recommend it if you get the chance. Ample shopping in nearby Hednesford.
