Golden Cap Holiday Park
About the Resort
A truly scenic getaway, Golden Cap Holiday Park is a welcoming resort on the Jurassic Coast offering spacious lodges and cosy caravans. It’s just 150 yards from Seatown Beach and is surrounded by 2,000 acres of beautiful National Trust land, making it a fantastic spot for a holiday whether you want to relax in natural surroundings or get active hiking across the cliffs and beaches.
Take your pick from the range of accommodation available for booking, some of which comes complete with incredible views of the sea. Dog-friendly options are also available if you want to bring along the family pet. The on-site shop has a range of food on offer, and there’s also a pizza takeaway service available at reception. Alternatively, the Anchor Inn in Seatown is just 2 minutes’ walk away, offering award-winning food and a view of the coast.
Things to Try
It wouldn’t be right to stay at the resort without visiting the landmark it’s named after! The cliff top of Golden Cap is the highest point on Britain’s south coast, with stunning views, and is just a couple of miles’ walk from the holiday park, along the scenic South West Coast Path.
Lyme Regis Museum
If all the talk of the Jurassic Coast has put you in a prehistoric mood, the Lyme Regis Philpot Museum is a great place to find out more about the history of fossil hunting and geology in the region. There’s no entry fee for kids, and you can even combine your visit with a fossil walk.
Axe Valley Park
A hidden gem of the East Devon countryside, Axe Valley Wildlife Park is a small zoo offering a wild day out with a range of different animals to see. You’ll be amazed by how close you can get to the variety of creatures on display, with talks and feedings throughout the day.
Lyme Bay RIB Charter
Take in the sights on a relaxed cruise or blast through the water at full throttle courtesy of a RIB (that’s a Rigid Inflatable Boat, for those not in the know). Trips run from West Bay quayside from Easter until the end of October – book ahead with Lyme Bay RIB Charter to avoid missing out.
