About The Old Radar StationStay on England’s spectacular natural World Heritage Site, The Golden Cap, in this restored radar station.
Starting life in 1961 as an MOD radar station, The Old Radar Station offers a remote hideaway for a group of six. Walkers, activity groups or large families alike will delight over its location, high on Stonebarrow Hill overlooking Lyme Bay and the Golden Cap.
You’ll be in perfect walking territory, with 25 miles of footpaths through the countryside and headlands of the Golden Cap right from your doorstep. From here you’ll be able to loop onto the South West Coast Path and hike further along the Dorset coastline. Or stay local and relax on Charmouth’s beach, which is only a 30 minute walk downhill.
