About St Gabriel's Campsite Golden Cap

A simple campsite in a spectacular setting on the Golden Cap estate.

St Gabriel's Campsite is a great choice for those looking for a rural camping experience with a difference. The two camping fields are a haven for wildlife and with views of the Jurassic Coast, the campsite is the perfect escape from modern life.

Regular visitors include wildlife enthusiasts, artists, young families and keen walkers. The site has easy access to all the paths and walks around the estate including the South West Coast Path, and very steep steps lead down to the secluded St Gabriel's Beach, please check these are open before your visit. Even at night there is plenty to do - simply lie back and enjoy the dark skies and stargazing.

Additional Information

Notes for guests

Customers: In order to stay at the site you need to be a National Trust member or Camping and Caravanning Club member. 

Facilities: There are no toilets or showers so you'll need to bring your own toilet facilities (this is a stipulation of the National Trust). There is a chemical disposal point and fresh running water available on site.

Restricted numbers: The site is a SSSI site (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and therefore pitches are limited. The grass is kept long in the centre of the fields to provide hay for the local farmer. We mow a margin around the edge of the field for campers. By mid-July the hay is cut and taken off site and the whole field is available for campers.

Phones: depending on your network, mobile phone signal can be patchy or even non existent at this very rural site, which might be a concern for solo campers.

Access: Due to the narrow access route, only smaller caravans will be able to use the site.

Fires: Due to the unprecendented hot weather and dry countryside camp fires and BBQs are NOT allowed.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
