A great natural environment - unspoilt and safe for walkers of all abilities. Plenty of parking, also, a small but well stocked shop and rest facilities. A lovely day out whatever the weather!

Top Tip - Go on a lovely day to drink in the view! We are walking the S W coast path from Weymouth direction, and in the distance in good weather Golden Cap looms above the range of hills around the west end of Lyme Bay. It was misty on top so first we parked at the National Trust Car... More

The views in both directions from the top of Golden Cap are fantastic - when the weather is clear Portland Bill can be seen easily looking east and way into Devon looking west. Take it slowly if you have to - but do get up to the top. The coastal path is a great walk as well as the walks... More

Spectacular scenery from the cliffs. Views from Portland to North Devon coast! You must detour a few yards from the coast path to visit the abandoned village of St Gabriels, now partly renovated by the NT. A most peaceful setting.

Not the best start, as our phone sent us one way and the car sat nav sent us another. Head for Langdon hill carpark. With two dogs and some sturdy walking boots we set off on this stunning picturesque walk, once we reached the peak it was absolutely worth it, breath taking views of the beautiful English coastline.

Golden Cap (@ 300m) is the highest point in Dorset. Lovely walk of about an hour with fantastic views over the cliffs and surrounding countryside. Apparently they have free public wifi (for all those statuses and selfies?) But I couldn't get into it.

We had climbed Ridge Cliff, which is the other side of The Anchor at Seatown to Golden Cap a few times. This weekend we had the time and need to work up an appetite and took the South Coast path. It is a relatively easy walk with a couple of steeper bits where the National Trust has put steps in.... More

This is well worth the short walk from the car park at Langdon Woods, just off the A35. Turn right after Felicity's Farm Shop travelling to Bridport from Lyme or walk from Seatown. Views are amazing.

The views from the top make the walk worth it! Some of the walk ways were very muddy so make sure you have sturdy foot wear. Lots of lovely places to eat in both Seatown and Charmouth to sustain you.
