About St Gabriel's Campsite Golden CapA simple campsite in a spectacular setting on the Golden Cap estate.
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. Even at night there is plenty to do - simply lie back and enjoy the dark skies and stargazing.
Please note that the tent and caravan pitches are in separate fields and there is no longer any access to the beach at St Gabriels.

Notes for guests
Facilities: There are no toilets or showers so you'll need to bring your own toilet and washing facilities. 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 and motorhomes under 6 meters will be able to use the site.
