Golden Cap

We left Highland End campsite and drove to Seatown, a bit further west along the coast, in order to walk to the Golden Cap and back. Golden Cap is a hill and a cliff situated between Bridport and Charmouth standing at 191 metres and is the highest point on the south coast. It is certainly an uphill climb to the top but the views are magnificent, looking east we could see as far as Portland Bill and to the west Lyme Regis and beyond. It is certainly worth the climb which is not too bad and then it is all downhill on the way back.

We stopped off for lunch at The Anchor Inn in Seatown, a really atmospheric pub, I imagine in the winter as well as in the summer, situated on the beach at Seatown, serving great food and drink. (Thank you Su & Ron for the recommendation!).

We then moved on to our final campsite for the next 3 nights, Wood Farm at Charmouth, a Best of British site, with super facilities including indoor swimming pool and tennis court. Charmouth is about ¾ of a mile away and Lyme Regis about 2 miles away, both within walking or cycling distance. We fancied a bit or R&R in the sunshine at the campsite, only to be disturbed by roadworks outside the campsite, strimmer and disc cutter. When that finished they started the ride on mower on the site that seemed as though the only place they wanted to operate was around us. So much for a quiet afternoon in the sunshine!
