Colmer’s Hill is an iconic part of the West Dorset landscape and one of the most recognisable places around. This pretty hill, sitting at 417 feet high, perches above the village of Symondsbury on the edge of Bridport. The hill inspires special affection among the townspeople of Bridport.

The hill has a conical shape with a number of trees at the summit, as well as a trig point and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. From Symondsbury Estate, where there is parking, shops and food, it is a 45 minute stroll (steep to the summit) to the top, where you can enjoy panoramic vistas across the Marshwood Vale, ideal for photo opportunities. Look out for buzzards, rabbits and deer along your walk.

Spring is a great time to visit with the whole hill awash with bluebells and the peak of the hill under the trees is a great place to enjoy a picnic. Dogs are welcome on leads as sheep roam in the fields leading up. The trail is a permissive path created by Symondsbury Estate and parking is free. This really is one of the best views in Dorset and we highly recommend it as a must see on your holiday to Dorset!

Colmer’s Hill is part of our West Dorset ‘Three Peaks’ Challenge, which is a circular 9.3 mile route that takes in 3 of the highest points in West Dorset – Thorncombe Beacon, Golden Cap and Colmer’s Hill.

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    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.

  • Best holiday ever!

    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.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    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.

  • Fantastic Park

    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.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    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.
