The Chase, known as Widney Farm prior to the 1920s, was originally part of the Manor of Longdon. This was owned by Lord Byron upon his marriage in 1815 to Anne Isabella Milbank, the daughter of Sir Ralph Noel, 6th Baronet. Upon Lady Byron's death in 1860, the manor was passed down to her son-in-law, William King-Noel, 1st Earl of Lovelace.

Following his death in 1899 it was sold to a Joseph Bennett Clarke and quickly sold again to well-known local bakers and confectioners, the Pattison Brothers. At this point the farm became known as Smith's Farm, named after the tenant of the farm, Sydney Smith. It is said that is also how Smiths Lane got its name.

The Chase Lodge is situated closest to Smiths Lane with its own private gated entrance to the property, but has the luxury of still being set within the beautiful grounds of the historic site.

Knowle is a tranquil rural village, 3 miles from Solihull. Located in the heart of the midlands, it is situated just 10.8 miles southeast of Birmingham and 11.2 miles west of Coventry, a stone's throw from the Grand Union Canal. The Chase is not short on access to rail networks, with three stations reachable within a ten-minute drive, the closest being only a mile away. Solihull itself is one of the best-connected towns in the region, making it perfect for commuters to London and Birmingham.
