Fabulous sea views, great family walk suitable for young and old kids. Easy parking, and a short 30 minute walk to the cliffs. Stunning 360 degree views of the coastline and Dorset countryside

From the car park a easy walk to the top, rewarded with a fantastic vieuw over the coastline. Was a nice Christmas walk.

The walks around here are fantastic. You can walk around Langdon Hill and then across to Golden Cap and back in a sort of circular route depending on how fit you are. Langdon Hill has a NT car park, but make sure you take any valuables out of your car as unfortunately bad things can and do happen. There is... More

Parked at the NT car park so only a short climb to the top of Golden Cap, but took a longer, very muddy walk back. There are several routes around the estate and unfortunately picked one with a very muddy downhill path. All good fun.

It had rained heavily the day before and so we had to sludge up and slide down in parts (once on my rear). However, the views at the top and even near are wonderful. You can see for miles as it is the highest cliff in Dorset. You also feel pretty pleased with yourself when you look down and see... More

Thoroughly enjoyed walking on this estate. Went up Golden Cap and then onto Seatown. Did not have a map so was very pleased with the clear sign posting. Fantastic views. Path was slippery as it had rained recently.

We went via Seatown and it wasn't as hard as I expected for us or our two boys, ages 7 and 9. Lots of people do in in their own pace. We saw little ones from age 3-4 up to some in their 70-80's. Best to go on a clear day for great views.

The highest cliff in Dorset apparently. A magnificent lump of cliff on the South Coast Path a couple of miles west of Westbay. Brilliant views from the top. Some steep bits, sometimes muddy in places in Winter. Pass Thorncombe Beacon, another high point , on the way. For a shorter walk start at the Carpark at Seatown.

I think this is the highest cliff on the south coast of England and it is certainly worth the walk. It is quite steep in places but we managed with my 9 month old daughter in a baby carrier! We think she enjoyed it. The views are stunning of the Jurassic cliffs and coastal landscape. The walk down to seatown... More

Hard work to get to the top but it was so worth it. The views are spectacular. Beware there is cattle in a lot of the fields. And of course walk along seatown beach to the base of golden cap and there is fossil galore. I have some stunning ammonites and we where very lucky and found a large section... More
