It’s a bit of a climb to the summit of Golden Cap, at 191 metres the highest point on the south coast. But once you and the family are up there, stand back and admire the view. On a clear day, you can see across Lyme Bay to Dartmoor and spectacular views east to Bridport and Chesil Beach. There are 25 miles of footpaths around the estate, which is National Trust-owned, and you can do as much or as little as you like. An all-ability circular trail takes you through the woodlands of Langdon Hill Wood. Years ago, this was a notorious haunt for smugglers and you can follow in their footsteps by downloading a new family-friendly trail.
