Really enjoyed our stroll around here, great paths, walks and a refreshment place that was not a rip off - great day out.

Went for a 2 hour walk and enjoyed every minute - Dorset is just so beautiful and unspoilt. Fantastic view and the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

As of May 2014, the Parking at Seatown is now open until 6pm and costs £4. 1.25 mile walk to Golden Cap, so about 45 mins there - less back!

We had the perfect weekend weather, and fellow residents in hotel, as well as staff were all very friendly.

Well worth the climb to the top, but do please note: (1) Local signposting is poor. The best route is to drive to Chideock and then take the (very narrow) road opposite the church marked “Seatown”. At the end is a £2 car park operated by a local brewery. The walk to the top starts at a stile in the... More

Wonderful view and one of the best in the world. Brought up here and just returned after being away a long time...why did we leave. Make sure you do the walk from West Bay to Lyme Regis taking in Golden Cap. Enjoy

Wonderful views across Lyme Bay and excellent walking - though several diversions caused by landslips.

Great walk - slightly steep at the end but even those with mobility issues can do part of the walk. Stunning view from the top. some of the steps are a bit high for me (and I'm 5'7") so a stick would be good if you are shorter

A bit of a climb but nothing too daunting and well worth it for the amazing views from the top. The National Trust car park is a little tricky to find as it doesn't appear to be sign-posted off the A35. Go westbound on the A35 and, after passing through Chideock, at the top of Chideock Hill, just before a... More

Plenty of walks, magnificent scenery, well certainly for those with a geological interest. The highest cliff on the south coat I believe, Golden Cap beating Beachy Head. Probably the smallest National Trust Tea room, just a machine
