Welcome to our Camping Pods in Dorset. Our Dorset Camping Pods are set in a idyllic valley surrounded by over 2,000 acres of stunning National Trust land and a short walk to Seatown beach and the South West Coast Path. The Pods provide a perfect base for walking and family fun holidays. You also get all the benefits of Glamping – No need to lug that tent along on holiday; no half-blown up air mattress, waterproof, cosy and warm, heating and electricity; and increased safety.
Premier Camping Pods
New for 2018, we have introduced 2 Premier Camping Pods at Golden Cap Holiday Park. At 10 square metres, the Premier Pods have enough room for up to 4 people. There is a double bed as well as 2 futons, which change into single beds suitable for adults or children and all linen is included. There is a kitchenette area with a fridge, toaster, kettle, 2 ring electric hob and microwave plus cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment.
Please note that the Premier Camping Pods do not arrive at Golden Cap until the Spring and that all the images shown on this page are from the manufacturer and may not be the exact product at Golden Cap Holiday Park.
There is a fold-down table with stools to eat on and an integrated wardrobe for your clothes as well as plug sockets and lighting throughout. The Pods are secure with a lockable door at the front and are completely waterproof, so if the weather is typically British you can stay warm and dry inside. If the weather is nice, step outside and you can enjoy a private decking area with a table and chairs to enjoy the views over miles and miles of countryside. Down on the grass there is also a picnic table and an area for BBQs. Each Pod even has its own name and interior to match. While there is no sink or bathroom in the Pods, facilities for washing up, toilets and hot showers are just a short walk away. Don’t forget to bring your towels.
We have dog friendly Premier Camping Pods available, for up to 2 dogs per booking and a dog bed and blanket included in the Pod. There is a £25 charge per dog per week and a £15 charge per dog for short breaks. Dogs must not be left unattended and are not allowed on the bed or soft furnishings.
There is a children’s play park close to the Camping Pods and it is a short walk to the toilet and shower block with laundry and washing up facilities. The Park Reception and Shop are a 5 minute walk away where you can get ice creams, newspapers, tea & coffee and even a pizza takeaway. There are 3 great pubs within a 15 minute walk of the park as well as a bus stop for the X53 Jurassic Coaster Bus that goes to many great places along the Dorset coastline. Guests are welcome to visit Highlands End Holiday Park (3 miles away) to use the facilities there including the Leisure Club with Swimming Pool, Sauna and Steam Room and Martin’s Bar & Restaurant.
The Premier Camping Pods are arriving at the Park in 2018 and will be available for bookings from 1st May to 1st October 2018. In 2019 they will be available from 16th March to 1st October.

Classic Camping Pods
We have Classic Camping Pods at Golden Cap Holiday Park for a basic Glamping experience. Enjoy the great outdoors of a Camping holiday but in a secure Pod out of the weather and cold and bring your own bedding. Our Classic Camping Pods are great for walkers, couples and young families.
Our innovative Classic Pods are hand-crafted locally in Dorset by Regal Holiday Homes. Each Camping Pod is 4.8 metres long by 2.8 metres wide. They are fully insulated with double glazed patio doors and has a small wooden porch, which includes 2 wooden boot boxes that can be used as storage space as well as under-cover seating benches.
The Camping Pods sleep 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 children with a double bed and 2 singles. Bedding is not provided so please bring pillows and bedding with you or sleeping bags for a more authentic camping experience. The Pods have electricity with plug sockets and a light, a small heater and fully functional smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. You will have full use of the shower and toilet block a short walk away. There is a large picnic bench outside to enjoy the great outdoors and parking is available next to the Glamping area. Unfortunately we cannot allow dogs in the Classic Camping Pods, only in the Premier Camping Pods for an extra charge.
