Probably one of the best campsites in Dorset, Golden Cap is located right on the beach in the hidden gem that is the village of Seatown on the Jurassic Coast. The camping field, called Red Hill View, is situated just 300 metres from the beach and has beautiful views of the surrounding hillsides and 2,000 acres of National Trust Land. This is a great location for stargazing, due to the park’s position in the valley of the River Winniford. All of the grass pitches are spacious (7.5 metres or 24.6 feet) and include electric hook-up. There is an additional camping field, called Big Berries, which has 150+ non-electric pitches that are available during the 6 week summer holidays. As well as the beach being within walking distance, there are 3 village pubs and on the park there is a SPAR convenience store, a picnic area, a children’s play area and a fishing lake.

If you’re looking for a quiet and peaceful campsite in Dorset, to get away from it all, then Graston Copse is perfect for you. Located in the Bride Valley and surrounded by rivers, woodland, countryside and farmland, the park is a haven for nature lovers, couples and families. While in a secluded and relaxing location, the park is just a 15 minute riverside walk away from the pretty village of Burton Bradstock with its family and dog friendly pubs, and a further 15 minutes from Hive Beach, one of our favourite beaches on the Jurassic Coast.
Graston Copse has spacious grass pitches with or without electric hook-up. There is a riverside walk, a woodland walk, a small park reception and a small toilet and shower block with free hot showers, a freezer for ice blocks, a laundry room, washing up sinks and free hairdryers. With very little light pollution, Graston is a superb location for stargazing and due to its focus on nature and the environment is a winner of the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award, with bug hotels, bird boxes and bee hives on the park.

West Dorset Leisure Holidays is great if you are looking for dog friendly camping holidays in Dorset. All 4 of our family-run parks have camping pitches that welcome dogs, with a maximum of 2 per booking. All our parks all have designated dog exercising meadows where dogs can be walked off the lead. At Highlands End, there is also a doggy shower, great after muddy walks, and a bar & restaurant that welcomes dogs. There is a small charge per night for dogs, which varies depending upon the time of year.
There are so many walks available on and around the parks and so many places to eat, attractions and beaches that welcome dogs around Dorset. Please note that Seatown Beach at Golden Cap does not allow dogs in peak season, but the South West Coast Path passes the park and there are footpaths all around the 2,000 acres of National Trust Land that surrounds the park.

We have just come back from the most magical few days staying at Highlands End. In fact, it was so good we extended our stay by a few days whilst on park. We are new to campsites and this was beyond my expectations

Our pitch was spacious and quiet. The facilities were clean and a generous number of showers etc whatever time we needed them. A very picturesque site and plenty to do straight from the van without the need to drive
Rachel L - Pitch Up
This park is in a wonderful location. The local village is beautiful and only a 15 min walk along the river. The beach is then another 15 minutes along - again a beautiful walk. We were blessed with amazing weather so we spent the afternoon on Hive Beach.
