Hambledon Hill is one of the most iconic sites in Dorset, with views over the Blackmore Vale and River Stour in the North Dorset countryside, as well as further afield towards Wiltshire and Somerset.

The hill is a National Nature Reserve and an iron-age hillfort with multiple ramparts. The hilltop is encircled by an iron age earthwork and there are other Neolithic features. It is a site of exceptional archaeological and ecological value, as well as a Site of Special Scientific Importance (SSSI). It is one of the best preserved Iron Age hillforts in the whole of Great Britain and one of the best preserved Neolithic landscapes in Europe. There are many rare species of plant and animal, including as many as 28 different species of butterfly.

For parking, there is a small unsigned lab-by south east of the village of Child Okeford, with space for 4 cars. Alternatively you can park in the village itself and walk up the many footpaths. Dogs are welcome. This is a great spot to enjoy the views and wildlife with a picnic

  • 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.
