I stayed in one of four NT cottages at St Gabriel's which are on the Golden Cap Estate. I could look out of the window and see the top of the climb. As you ascend the views just get better and better and then when...More
My husband & I recently visited Golden Cap after parking in the nearby Langdon Woods car park. This was free for us at NT members. The walk was quite steep in places, climbing lots of steps, but wasn’t far & was very easy.
Stunning viewpoint over the south west coast. Well marked paths al best a little strenuous as this is the highest point on the South coast of England it is always well worth the trek and a treat of drink at the Anchor in Seatown on...More
It is some time since we climbed to the top of Golden Cap which is the highest point on the south coast.
The longer route is to follow the marked footpath from Seatown. Seatown is signposted off the A35 in Chideock.

It has been two years since the last trek up to the top of Golden Cap. The climb is vastly improved by thoughtful steps before reaching the summit leaving out the scrabble through the bracken! Far less challenging. An astonishing view awaits you! Parking can...More
We walked up from the Anchor Inn at Seatown. As expected the path was very steep in some places but good underfoot, it took about 40 minutes to the summit. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day so we had no view from the top, but...More
The views from the top of golden cap were indeed staggering. It was a stiff climb, but well worth it as the outlook along the magnificent coast line were wonderful.
Unfortunately the car park attendant was extremely unpleasant, and rude.
Waking from the Golden Cap carpark, there is a (approximately) 45 minute walk (30 if you’re quick) through quiet woodland to get to the summit.
And my god, what a view.
Dramatic cliffs and endless oceans; I found myself stood for a good 5 minutes...More

The best way is to park in Langdon Woods (NT car park) and then walk through the woods (go straight on in the direction you have driven into the car park). After a fairly short flat walk you will see a signpost on the left pointing down a hill. This will take you into the valley and then up to Golden Cap. Langdon Woods is just off the A35, at the end a small lane on the left just after leaving Chideock in the direction of Lyme Regis, before you get to Felicity's Farm Shop. It is off the steep hill out of Chideock and you need to keep your eyes peeled for the turning, it is at the start of some dual carriageway. When you go down the lane, there is a turning to the left which takes you to the woods. The George in Chideock is a good place for lunch or of course you could walk down to Seatown or St Gabriel's if you want a longer walk. Have a great time.
All of these answers are good - it depends which way you prefer to approach from. If you walk from the west (Charmouth) towards Seatown you'll have earned a pint there at the Anchor Inn right by the beach and good food too... More
All of these answers are good - it depends which way you prefer to approach from. If you walk from the west (Charmouth) towards Seatown you'll have earned a pint there at the Anchor Inn right by the beach and good food too. If you follow BoBBournemouth's route the Anchor is all the way to the end of the small street you'll turn into by the cream tea sign in Chideok. Enjoy!
