For probably one of the best campsites in Dorset, Golden Cap on the Jurassic Coast is the perfect choice! Located in the valley of the River Winniford, the camping pitches at Golden Cap Holiday Park are just a few hundred metres from Seatown Beach and the South West Coast Path.
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, with non-electric pitches, that are available for 6 weeks in the summer. Many of the camping pitches enjoy views of the surrounding hillsides and countryside and are just a short walk from the coast. The camping pitches are located within the Red Hill View touring & camping field, along with the touring & motorhome pitches and our glamping accommodation.
The camping pitches all have use of the toilet and shower block, with clean and well maintained facilities including a laundry room (charges apply), washing up sinks, a freezer for ice blocks, free hairdryers and more. Dogs are welcome with all camping bookings (max of 2) and prices vary per night depending upon the time of year. There is a small enclosed dog exercising area on the park for exercising dogs off the lead. For families, there is a picnic area with sea views at the front of the park, a children’s playground and a fishing lake (permit required).
The sloping field enjoys great views over the Dog House hills to the clifftop peak of Thorncombe Beacon, as well as Golden Cap, the highest cliff on the south coast of England. Red Hill View is just a 200 metre walk from the front of the park. At the Park Reception and Park Shop there is a pizza takeaway, hot and cold drinks, ice creams and much more. The South West Coast Path passes the park entrance and a further 100 metres south you will reach Seatown Beach and the award-winning Anchor Inn pub.
For non-electric camping pitches, there is a spacious field called Big Berries. This 16 acre camping field is available for 6 weeks in the summer and enjoys beautiful views across the valley to the sea. It’s perfect for groups and families and is suitable for tents and VWs. The field has fantastic facilities just a few minutes walk away with a laundry room (charges apply), toilets, showers and a freezer for ice blocks.
You can walk along the bridleway and footpaths to the village of Chideock with its 2 pubs, bus stops to catch the Jurassic Coast bus and convenience store. The park is just a few miles west from the market town of Bridport and fishing village of West Bay, where there is a choice of supermarkets, places to eat and things to do. Venture west and you will reach the coastal village of Charmouth with its heritage coast centre and guided fossil walks, as well as Lyme Regis, a charming town with sandy beach, cobb harbour and independant shops. Golden Cap Holiday Park is in a fantastic location for viewing the night sky – find out more about stargazing.

There is Highlands End Leisure Club with a swimming pool, sauna and steam room (charges apply), Martin’s Bar & Restaurant with a children’s soft play (charges apply), sunday carvery, live sport, live music & events and more, as well as a Pitch ‘n’ Putt course (charges apply), a nature trail and children’s play areas.

This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

An excellent Park as a base to visit the Dorset coast, Jurassic Coast, Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, to name a few.

10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

The location is amazing, right on the beach and all the facilities are good. It's a hidden gem this one, one of the best parks in the country
Mark Tee - Tripadvisor
The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
